Backpacking in Maldives : Cheap Hotels in Hulhumale near Male Airport

data-ad-format="link">

There is nothing much to do in the mainland but if you are arriving in Male late at night or if you want to explore the local culture, it will be wise to book a hotel in Hulhumale which is about 15 minutes by bus from Velana International Airport in Male, Maldives. An airport shuttle leaves Male Airport every 20-30 minutes going to Hulhumale. The fare is MVR20 (US$1.25). The bus stop is located outside the airport fronting the ferry terminal to Male.


Here are our recommended hotels / Inns / Lodges in Hulhumale.

UI Inn
This is one of the cheapest accommodations in Hulhumale and it is just around 5-7 minutes walk from the bus stop. I got a single room with breakfast for about Php2,000 (US$42). The room is small but it's clean and comfortable. UI Inn is also close to Hulhumale Beach around 2 minutes walk. The breakfast is buffet with limited choices but it's not bad at all. The vegetable curry that I had was good. Also make sure you order their tea latte. You can check rates and book here. If you decide to stay at UI Inn, you can either arrange an airport pickup or take the public bus. If you take the bus just like I did, you need to alight at the first bus stop and walk to your left, turn right at the corner and just go straight and walk about 5 minutes or so. Ask around if you're lost. The locals and friendly and will assist you. Book Now!




H78 Hotel
If you are looking for a beachfront hotel, then H78 is maybe the right place for you. The place is just in front of Hulhumale Beach. This is a bit more expensive than UI Inn considering the location. You can check rates and book here.
