Our flight landed in Male at midnight Hong Kong time. We were exhausted and Sala Boutique Hotel provided the perfect stopover. It was a short ferry + taxi ride from the airport. Thomas greeted us on arrival, check-in was prompt. We wanted a light supper and their Thai restaurant served the most delicious and authentic Pad Thai ever. The next... More

By far my best experience staying in Male. Owner and employees we far more generous and helpful than any hotel I've visited on island. The level of intuitive service was beyond what I would have expected. I will be coming back!

We stayed here during a 1 night stay in Male before moving on to one of the islands. It is a great little 4 star boutique little hotel (I give it 4 stars however had it been in Europe it may have only gotten 3.5 but for Male I think this is a fair score). Good value for money and... More

SALA BOUTIQUE HOTEL. MALE. One or two nights sleeping in Male allows you to know the capital (the fishermen's pier, really few things) and mainly better organize the jump to your Resort (mine, Kuramathi don't informe juts until the day before... ). At the airport, waiting for us, a hotel boy, facilitate to move with a public ferry and taxi... More

The staff was very friendly and helpful, they greeted me at the airport and took care of all my luggage transfers both to and from the hotel. Thomas the owner was always available, ready and willing to help. As an added bonus the Thai restaurant was terrific. I stayed before and after my live aboard dive trip and highly recommend... More

Just upon arrival you feel like at home, being greeted by the entire team is such great feeling. The welcome attitude makes the difference, as well as the refreshing atmosphere and all the kind and detailed explanations given to us. The room is wonderful, even better than the luxury other hotels. You have such privacy even if you know you... More

Unquestionably the best part of one's stay at Sala Boutique Hotel is the service. We traveled into Male after an island stay and were met at one of the city piers by someone from the hotel. This had been prearranged by our resort hotel and we had no issue getting a mid-afternoon pickup. We traveled to the hotel by taxi... More
