Super consistent left hand reef break. Lohis is accessible via ramp next to the deck at the point. For some rooms it is a 30 second walk. There are rocks and coral at the bottom of the ramp so it is a good idea to wear booties. It can be a powerful wave during the high season April-Sept so beginner surfers are not recommended. It likes a NW wind but can hold a west wind much better than the other lefts in the area as the island extends out further than Pasta Point, Chickens or Honkies. The other waves in the area are accessible via boat which you pay extra for through the resort.

Works with a big swell. SW winds deteriorate the surf. Super fun and rippable at 2-3 ft and good barrels at 4-6ft. Not too crowded as the surfer numbers are capped. This wave is not a wave for beginners.
If you are lucky you will surf one of the best waves of your life. Try to plan your trip during the best season from April-October.
Be aware that surfer numbers are limited to 45 on the island. It is mandatory to buy a surf pass to be one of the 45 surfers otherwise you will not be able to surf during your holiday. While the resort has the rights to manage the wave Lohis for tourists, local Maldivian surfers are free to surf any wave in the Maldives.

Lohi´s - I agree with you. The Huhuran Fushi Hotel is not worth it. The very last day some hotel staff opened our surfboard bags and stole 300 euros. The Hotel didn´t accept their responsability. They were so miserable to us. In that Hotel they just want your money. They will steal you or charge you 40 dollars for using the internet.You are just a walking dollar.
By the way, the wave is good.
