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

At arrival (1am because of a delayed flight) they tell us that we have 3 hours to sleep because of the arrangement with the airline and resort...the worst thing is that we got still charged full rate even If we spend only a few hours and missed breakfast. Still all this I could understand. The worst? Very small bedroom, noisy... More

ARRIVAL: My wife and I visited the Maldives on our honeymoon and we stayed at the Sala Boutique Hotel for a couple of nights before we went to our resort. Our flight arrived at around 9PM and because we flew business class, we were able to get cleared through customs rather quickly. Unfortunately, our pick-up from Sala Boutique Hotel was... More

We stayed for an overnight in October 14. We were greeted at the airport and escorted through the airport to boat taxi and short taxi ride to the hotel. The welcome from Thomas at the hotel was very sincere and appreciated. Rooms were great, not huge but very comfortable. The arrangements for the taxi pick up and sea plane times... More

As lots of travellers do, it seems, we stayed one night before heading out to a resort. We were met on arrival, transferred to the hotel via boat and taxi (unique experience to the Maldives!), and were thereafter looked after in every way. The owner was friendly and greeted us by name and even got up at 0530 to prepare... More

We stayed at the Sala boutique Hotel and really enjoyed the place. The restaurant served the best Thai food in Male. It is well managed, clean and really friendly staff. We will definitely stay at Sala again. And Frederic and Thomas for their great hospitality.

Home in Male' was a cozy boutique hotel SALA . Thai themed with excellent decor and cuisine! I am not exaggerating when I say the food here is as good as or even better than one finds in Thailand. The rooms are beautifully furnished and all the convenience one finds in any other highly established hotels. The CEO and the... More

We had to at least discover the City of Male, since we were there, an intriguing place and glad that we had a nice and friendly hotel to return to! After trying out some local food, we ended up preferring Thai Cuisine at the hotel's restaurant. Khrup Khun Ma Krup!
