Bungalow | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Would like to enjoy the real Maldives then Ocean Sound is the place to stay.
The house is located on an island close to the capital as well as to the airport so the distance to travel from the airport to the house is very short. Though it is close to the airport you will not hear the aircrafts. It is a very calm and peaceful place. However, during day time you will see small sea planes ferrying tourists to far off islands and back.
The house is located near amazing diving and snorkelling spots and excellent wave surfing areas.
Unlike resort islands we are also providing our guests with a 23 feet speed boat for their enjoyment. In addition to it we are also providing a jet ski for our guests use.
At resort islands you are restricted to snorkel on the house reef of that particular island unless you are willing to pay an exorbitant price to hire a boat . At Ocean Sounds you can take the boat to many wonderful snorkelling spots throughout the Male' Atoll. You can take the boat and go big game fishing, night fishing, visit uninhabited islands, sand banks and go dolphin watching. The boat comes with a skipper and a crew.
Ocean Sounds has all the modern conveniences like air conditioning, hot and cold water, microwave, refregirator, washing machine, satellite television, a desktop computer, telephone and broadband wifi internet throughout the house.
If you do not feel like cooking you can go to many restaurants close to the house or for more high quality food take a bus and visit the airport hotel where you can enjoy a variety of dishes, a bar and their swimming pool.
There is also a mini van available for our guests to use. Though the island is small a van does come handy now and then.

"An exceptional holiday with outstanding guides"
Ocean Sounds is the perfect base for a holiday in the Maldives, as you have a speedboat with excellent English speaking drivers to take you on day trips to the most spectacular sand bars, little picnic islands, dolphin watching and fishing or to other resorts where you can be pampered and enjoy buffet meals, if you wish. Rifae & Mohommed were the outstanding guides - always happy to help, courteous and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble.
Hulhumale, the man-made island where Ocean Sounds is, was disappointing with lots of litter on the beaches and in the streets, but the sea was crystal clear with no pollution. However, we spent very little time around the house, so weren't really affected by it. NO ALCOHOL is allowed, and NO BIKINIS permitted on the beach near the house! Take tops and shorts to swim in!
Idham, the owner, went out of his way to accommodate any requests we had, and went out of his way to ensure that the holiday was memorable! We will definitely return again! Thanks to everyone - your attitude made the holiday even more special.
We are delighted to learn that you had a wonderful time in the Maldives. We look forward to welcoming you to the Maldives in the near future.

We have just come back from our 10 days stay at lovely Ocean sounds, and I must say that we enjoyed every moment of our stay here.
Its the best location in Hulhamale glorios beach few steps away, the house it slef has everything you need to have a great holiday.you have all the freedom you want you get your own guide, a speed boat and a crew so unlike a resort holiday you can plan your own trips where you want when you want.
The food is very cheap in this Island my personal favourite was River Cafe. this Island is very close to the capital Male just 5 min by speed boat and 20 min by ferry and again very cheap so you get a bit of city life as well beach.
I will defiantly recommend this place if you want to see the real Maldives.
Just want to say Thanks to the owner, and our guides Rifae and Muhammed.
Thank you Mohamed for your kind review of Ocean Sounds. Much appreciated
