This was a really lovely hotel. It has an enclosed courtyard at the front and the smell of incense oil in the air. The rooms are very beautiful with incredibly comfy beds. It's 5 minutes' walk from the waterfront and jetties, but the owner, who is very accommodating, will arrange for all transfers - to and from airport and jetties... More

For our first trip to the Maldives, we decided to book for two nights in Male before going on to Bandos resort - assuming that a resort would not exactly give one an idea of the 'real Maldives'. This was a very good idea, and I am glad I read the mostly very good reviews of the Sala Hotel to... More

I am so pleased that I found this oasis in Male. I needed a place to stay as I transitioned from one part of my vacation to the other. I also needed a day room as my departure flight was late at night. Thomas was able to offer me both a fantastic room for my overnight stay as well as... More

We stayed for one night at Sala. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We were picked up at the airport (the rep was on time/smiling/friendly), taken onto the ferry and then escorted in a short cab ride to the hotel/restaurant. The hotel/restaurant is well located and the food is quite decent (but expensive for what it is), the restaurant... More

A Thai style hotel with very good western breakfast. It's a quite little world in Male city. The hotel has nice furniture selected from Thailand by the owner. The service is also very good. there is a thai restaurant in the hotel, environment is really good and seems a expansive one.

My friends and I checked in Sala Boutique hotel at night after 2 nights staying in resorts. When we mentioned to resort people that we were going to visit Male and stay in this hotel, people showed us a different face. By the time we arrived Male, we understand what they mean, the roads are very narrow and crowded which... More

We were then brought to the ferry then transfer to taxi and reached hotel (all are covered), basically airport return transter are covered. The hotel is located at one of the small paths. We were lost when... More

I found the the Sala Boutique hotel on tripadvisor. Unlkie most folks who come to the Maldvies, I was coming for work and, while I had a reasonable per diem allowance, it wasn't at the level of a tourist hotel or resort. Enter the Sala. I took a chance ... due diligence only gets you so far when trying to... More

The Sala Boutique hotel is run by a true hospitality professional. Lovely and well-kept. Clean and stylish. The morning breakfast was wonderful with fresh bread baskets, chicken sausage and eggs. The hotel is situated in a busy part of Male, but was surprisingly quiet.

Unlike most other tourists and visitors to Sala it seems, my husband and I stayed at Sala Boutique Hotel after our week at a resort. We opted to spend 2 nights in Male to see a different side of the Maldives from the idyllic resort life. When we mentioned to people at the resort that we would be visiting Male... More
