Charming Holiday Lodge

Charming Holiday Lodge is located on the Addu Atoll which is also home to Addu City. This Atoll is unique, even among the Atolls of the Maldives in so far as it provides a natural anchorage within its basin. The Atoll is considered to be land-locked as it is surrounded by other large islands, meaning that its surrounding waters are not affected by the different seasons. Access to the atoll by sea is provided by 4 channels but it does have its own Gan International Airport, a former Royal Navy base.


Although the large rooms of the Charming Holiday Lodge use local architecture, they are modern with all the modern conveniences you would expect from a luxury hotel, air conditioning, flat screen TV with cable channels, free Wi-Fi, attached bathrooms with hot and cold water, even an outside shower and bathtub.


The lodge is actually located in Addu City, Meedhoo and although the restaurants and tea shops on Meedhoo can offer you dishes to delight your taste buds, the Lodge’s own restaurant can also offer you a wide range of cuisine to choose from. The Lodge’s experienced chef provides a menu that has both the best Maldivian dishes as well as an á la carte selection of international favourites. The restaurant also provides a buffet dinner for those that would prefer a little less formality. With a policy of the guest’s wishes coming first, the lodge will even arrange for you to dine at a nearby luxury resort, only 15 minutes away by bicycle, if you wish to sample an even wider selection of dishes.


When choosing the Maldives for a holiday, relaxation is often high on the list of what the vacationer is looking for and the Charming Holiday Lodge and the Maldives in general, can certainly provide that. Relaxing on a nice sandy beach is one way that many find to relax but doing it whilst knowing you are only just outside of all that Addu City has to provide, means you have nothing to rush for or excite yourself about. For a relaxing, stress free meal, the lodge will even arrange for you to have a romantic dinner on the beach, under the stars.


Although the lodge is small, which is one of its charms; it does not mean that it cannot provide you with a large number of activities to partake in, should you get bored with relaxing on the beach. Through its connections with the nearby resorts, the lodge staffs can arrange for you to enjoy any of the many water sports and activities offered by those resorts, whilst not paying the resort prices for lodgings. Banana boat rides; canoes and even snorkelling and scuba diving equipment can easily and quickly be arranged for your use. Other activities that are often enjoyed by the lodge’s guests are beach BBQs, picnics on deserted islands and of course fishing, of which either day or night fishing trips can be arranged.
