I was recommended to stay at Lvis Blancura by my friend who visited dharavandhoo before me. So i went ahead and book the room for 10days and it was beyond what i was expected. The owners Lisham and Visham are incredible awesome people that would try to organize anything that would make your trip memorable. From Manta excursion, sandbank trip, fishing trip, to candle light dinner.
This guesthouse has 11 rooms. I stayed in the beach view room …which was perfect for me as I was on my workation . So it was nice to work with the ocean view.
The room is a good size and clean. Water is hot , which is a great thing after I went for a swim in the late afternoon.
The staff are very attentive and helpful. I love that they smile all the time.
Food is another great thing about this place.
I would recommend book the half board or even full board meal. Chef would cook a few variety of food for you to try in a meal…they call this a family style sharing…
I have a lot of food allergy and the team pay attention to my detail of food I avoid…so i end up have many grill fishes and salad which is PERFECT for me…
For manta trip, Lisham has a connection with the Rangers who fly drones and control the Hanifaru Bay. So Lisham will come around to tell you if there are Manta in the bay and what time to meet if you want to go!!
After 10days , the place has almost became my second home in Maldives!! It was so warm hearted that I decided to return to Lvis Blancura again just after 2 weeks.
On my 2nd trip, i was welcome with 2 boiled egg which is what i would have for my breakfast/lunch everyday!! I mean they staff really put a thought of me coming back and I might be hungry … that was really nice of them.
I stayed for a week on my second visit. Lisham and I had became good friends. And I am glad that during my second visit, i have taught him how to freedive and certified him and Molchanovs Wave1 freediver!!
So if you visit Dharavandhoo or Hanifaru Bay…you can contact him to be your buddy 😉

We had a perfect holiday at LVIS Blancura! We were there in June 2021 (May to October are considered low season at the Maldives and also covid restrictions were still in place in a lot of places) and for a week we were the only guests, so all the trips (diving, Hanifaru, sandbank, desert island) we organized specially for us. Visham (the owner) did everything he could to ensure we gad the best experience: depending on the current, tides and weather he advised us when to go where. He also connected us with excellent dive instructors (Modu and Appi from Blue world diving center). We saw mantas, turtles, sharks, moray eels, even a whale shark!
Going to Hanifaru bay (15-20 min by boat) was incredible! Visham picked the day for us to go based on the info from rangers, so we saw a lot of mantas))))))
The food was great, diverse and tasty, lots of fish, chicken, salads and vegetables, so also pretty healthy.
The bikini beach is in 30m from the hotel. Home reef has eagle rays, turtles, nurse sharks and even a manta once swam by! Beach towels available, so no need to bring your own. Coral shoes are a must - the rocks in the water are sharp. You can rent fins and masks at the hotel if you don't have your own.
We felt very welcome and everyone was super friendly ))) on our last night they organized a romantic candle lit dinner at the beach)))))
Out room was nice: bed was comfortable, the ac worked well, sheets and towels were changed every day, there's a fridge, though we didn't use it. The furniture isn't very new, but everything was working and quite sufficient.
During low season there are a lot of mosquitoes, so use bug spray - the hotel provides it.
Hands down best guesthouse in dharavandhoo

This is one of the best guest houses I’ve stayed at in the Maldives. For me the hospitality and service I got here beats any resort. My main purpose to stay in dharavandhoo was for diving and the blancura was ideal as my accommodation. Good was exquisite , lisham is an excellent and outstanding host. Treats you like family and you are considered part of the blancura family. I’d always stay here everytime I go to dharavandhoo. No second thoughts on that. Keep up the good work. It’s a rough time for everyone in the hospitality industry to survive but you guys at blancura held your chin up high and still delivered. Thank you so much for a memorable time. With the bookings of the local flights and in organizing the PCR test. God bless the team at blancura.
I strongly recommend staying LIVS !!

I strongly recommend staying LIVS !!
1. Foods: Foods are delicious by 25 years experienced chief(Mr.Uden) in Maldive and LVIS team make our time in restaurant very enjoyable.
2. Excursions: Excursions are super fun with friendly boat team (Mr.Chiyr, Mr.Riyaz, Mr.Liyas). Fishes we caught were cooked delicious for dinner.
3. Clean and tidy room: LVIS team clean the room so nicely and satisfactory.
4. Owner (Mr.Visham, Mr.Ishan, Mr.Lishan) are very helpful. Visham answered all the questions by Whatsapp while we were planing the trip to Dharavandhoo. Ishan helped in Male to find the domestic flight. Lushan helped all our stay in Dharavandhoo comfortable and enjoyable.
5. Day trip to resort island: We visited Kihaa Resort Island as a Day Trip. We enjoyed snorkeling in Kihaa house leaf and had relaxed time there. Kids enjoyed very much.
6. Friendly children of local island: LVIS Hotel is located in just next door of local residences. My kids met local children in beach and they kindly took us tour of local island. They taught us many about Dharavandhoo island. Even kids cook some local foods for us (like salad made by apple and carrot with Majya sauce which is spicy fish sauce) and did snorkeling in house leaf together. These are unforgettable memories ever!!
We will definitely stay to the LVIS again if we could have a chance to come back!
Best guest house we have ever stayed at!

This hotel has one of the best customer services and we felt so welcomed! They played with my young son while they were working and he had a blast! All the guests and staff felt like one big family and made our trip very relaxing and enjoyable. We went out for snorkeling almost everyday of our 8 nights here but could not see mantas for the first few days due to the weather. Usually in the season when we went(October), it is clear skies, but the weather patterns are changing and it was raining almost everyday. But we finally got to see them on the last two days and they were absolutely glorious. Once we finished the snorkeling, we went up on the boat and line fished in the rain. We ended up catching 10 fish which were served as dinner the next day! The food is delicious and the chef always comes around and talks with us and I got to learn a few tricks on how to cook some of the foods served there. He is a very experienced chef and I found myself looking forward to the food every day! Thank you so much for giving us this wonderful experience and welcoming us with the most wonderful staff! We will definitely stay here again if we ever get another chance to come!
