From the moment we got to the island to the moment we left we were smiling. Rooms are spacious and clean and the view excellent. Definitely the best on the island The food was always enough and true to the Maldivian style Trips are worth every rufiyaa and kinan is definitely very well priced. But by far the best part of our trip was the kind and adventurous staff . They were always ready to help, plan the next trip, teach us about the island and culture and to help with whatever we needed

If you get to visit the Maldives consider yourself lucky. The beauty is unmatched. Kinan Retreat is a 80k a night experience on a much more modest budget. The staff go out of their way to make you happy. The rooms are nice and super clean. Phein, Phyzo, and Shinan are the dream team of happy! Use your mosquito spray and bring water shoes. Be prepared for the trip of a lifetime, I know we had one!

So far the best hotel/guesthouse we stayed in Maldives! The place itself is great right in front of the beautiful beach next to the jetty where you can see all the rays and sharks in the evenings, also very close to both of the bikini beaches so their location is the best in Fulidhoo. Another great point about the location is that the dive center is just next to the hotel so it’s super convenient for the DIVERS. We had a room with a balcony which had the best view and the room was huge and the decoration was so authentic and new! The chef is great we enjoyed the breakfasts every morning and one night the staff surprised us with a romantic dinner right at the beach with nice music and great food! The staff, Faisal and Shinan were the greatest, special thanks to both of them for making our stay so comfortable and also being there whenever we needed anything! I strongly recommend guests to do the excursions such as snorkeling and fishing, it was so much fun and Shinan takes amazing videos of you underwater during snorkeling! We will definitely go back and stay at Kinan again! Strongly recommend it!

I highly recommend Kenan Hotel. We stayed 7 nights. They have the perfect spot on that small island. It’s very clean, the food they serve is good and not expensive. A lot of activities/excursions are proposed. All staff members are very kind and thoughtful. They made a great effort for new year eve dinner and we loved it. Thanks again to all the staff!

We stayed for 10 days at Kinan's. The staff is lovely. Faisal the manager is amazing, Sheenan, the captain and activities leader, the cook, the cleaning team are all awesome, efficient, fun, smily and honest people. Genuine Maldivians. It was heart breaking to leave. The hotel itself is mainly in nice clean and solid wood. Facing the turquoise sea. The location is, in my mind the best of the island (nice white sand, less exposed to winds, facing the sea). Next to a volleyball court. Remember that there are no cars in Fulidhoo: we loved this. The hotel is clean and they watch carefully for covid rules. There was no quarantine on arrival. They checked out temperature every day - it was fun :o) We took half board and loved the local food. We spend an awesome Christmas and New Year at Kinan's Kinan Adventure's boat, safely driven by Sheenan, will take you to swim with dolphins, swim with sharks, swim with mantas or whale sharks, swim around a ship wreck, and snorkel. You will love these activities. We used their speedboat for our transfers.
