EXPLORE UKULHAS IN MALDIVES

We exist to explore a side of Maldives that is still fairly unknown. Where the local island life and tourism live in harmony with each other. An award-winning beachfront hotel located on the beautiful local island of Ukulhas. Surrounded by the world-famous diving and Snorkeling marvel of the North Ari Atoll.

We believe in the quality of your stay. There are 25 cosy, spacious, air-conditioned rooms available. We respect our environment and by using reused wood, we draw attention to the value of ecological materials to provide environmentally friendly stay with healthier living standards.

Best experience in Ukulhas The hotel is clean, staff is very friendly and helpful. The food at the restaurant is delicious. The beach is very close by and it's perfect for snorkelling. Very kid friendly. We took a room with a jacuzzi and sea view. It was beautiful.

Soggiorno perfetto Abbiamo soggiornato al West Sand per circa 10 giorni da fine luglio con il nostro bimbo di 16 mesi. Tutto è stato perfetto, dalla camera ampia al cibo, allo staff. Lo staff ci ha fatto sentire come a casa, lo consiglio assolutamente anche per chi ha bambini piccoli come noi.

Прекрасный отель на острове!! Были в этом отеле уже 5 раз и вернемся ещё. Хороший отель с отличными сотрудниками и менеджером на берегу моря! В номерах все есть, удобная кровать, хорошая уборка номеров. Отличный ресторан, вкусно и разнообразно, всегда есть фрукты, а для детей по вашему запросу приготовят любое блюдо. Прекрасные экскурсии: манты, снорклинг и рыбалка. Экскурсии для маленьких групп или возможно окажется только для вашей семьи. Спасибо отелю и команде за отличный и комфортный отдых!! Привет Харди от Максима и Артема:)

Очень хороший отель Нам очень понравился этот отель. Красиво внутри и в номерах, очень близко до пляжа, 50м, причём по нашему мнению, это лучший пляж на острове. Особый сервис в отеле, обходительность и дружелюбность персонала. Особенно хочу отметить менеджера отеля

Most amazing plaze! I will recommend this place at any time! My friend and I had the most amazing week here. The staff and the people here are so nice and helpful! The rooms are clean and very nice, and the good aircondition. They provide very great tours, to a fair price. We went to snorkel with whale shark and manta rays, the most amazing experience and tour!! Also the island is just incredible beautyful! And it is so great to snorkel also just by the beach, where you can see so many colorfull fisk everywhere! We also saw turtles and mini sharks. Also the food they serve here is really great local food! This island is a special pearl. So grateful. This was above all expectations.

Lovely stay at West Sands My friend and I stayed at the hotel for 7 nights, and it has been way better than expected. The staff here is so friendly and kind and the service is on top. They are cleaning our room everyday so we don’t have to walk on a sandbanke. They clean beach towel every single day was also nice. We book a stay with breakfast and dinner, and the buffet is different every day and offers lots of different food. Greens, meat, vegetarian, sweets and frult - so lovely.We went on a boat-trip with to from the crew staff and we didn’t needed anything. The staff was patient and was completely adapted to our needs.The hotel is next to the beach and i couldn’t wish for a better stay.
