The Maldives is famous for its crystal clear waters, an amazing underwater world and awe-inspiring collection of white-sand beaches. Looking for the perfect budget vacation in Maldives brings people to think of the possibility of finding a guest houses with private beach, it does sounds very appealing, having a small coastline for yourself, far away from the rest of the world.

These guest houses with their own beach in Maldives are pretty much the tropical escape idyll. Mostly isolated, they each have a strip of sand which they do not share with any other hotel and, in most cases to ensure you will generally have it exclusively to yourself, sharing it only with the other guests at the hotel. On these beaches you can swim and sunbathe in a bikini while travelers staying at other hotels should share a common tourist beach, which sometimes has a remote location on the island.

Book a room at any of these hotels and you’ll have your own slice of beach heaven, available just for you (and a few fellow guests). Luxury, convenience and the privacy, this is a list of fantastic Maldives guest houses for people who don’t want to compromise; for those who say, “I don’t want to share my beach”. It’s okay to be a little selfish sometimes...
