A lovely, peaceful boutique place hidden amongst bustling Male. Sala is well designed, well presented and extremely comfortable. All staff were exceptionally helpful and welcoming. The Thai restaurant was fantastic.

It is very nice boutique hotel, 6 rooms only. It is very quiet. The historical building was redecorated into a Thai style hotel and restaurant by the very hospitable owner (Mr. Thomas). The staff is more than friendly, they make you feel at home. I stayed in male for more than a week, and they remembered every time my breakfast... More

Sala hotel was our last stop after our island stay in Vilamendhoo. What you read and what you see from the reviews are exactly what you get and even more.
