Been there for 2 weeks on business mid July. very cosy and relaxing especially after a hard day at work, i think they are among the few hotels/restaurants to have an outside garden on Male. they have a thai restaurant serving the best thai food there. their breakfast (european - croissant, eggs, yogurt etc) can keep you from having lunch...

When we arrived, we were amazed by the thai-infused aura of the place which stimulates relaxation amidst the hullabaloo in the busy Male City. The splash of colours and wonderful travel photos exhibited on the walls added beauty to this charming hotel. It's true, the wonderful comments we got from guests and employees in Kuredu island when we were being... More

I do not know how to began. First: we were welcomed by the Thomas and Jasim. They made our arrival very smooth and offered us a breakfast since we came early. Then, we meet Fredric and Neno. They made our stay very comfortable. Especially Neno, he arranged so many activities which made our travel. Breakfast was really nice. The room... More

Great stay at Sala during the month of June. I stayed at Sala for four nights while on a business trip to Male and had a great experience. The owners have done a superb job of creating a peaceful comforting refuge from the chaos and congestion of Male. When you come back at the end of the day you enter... More

We stayed in the Sala Boutique Hotel for a month. It is a long stay in Male as Male is a working island and not the sunny beach-side destination that one expects of the Maldives. Being at the Sala Boutique Hotel made it possible. The rooms are clean, the TV and internet system works and the dining room is delightful.... More

My fiancé and I had a well remarkable stay here last month. Everything is simply superb! From the pre-booking arrangements down to our last day.. It certainly gave us that divine breathing space whilst we tend on our usual business affairs during the day. Surprisingly, the breakfast is what we very much look forward to every morning..

We stayed at the Sala Boutique before and after our live aboard dive trip. The hotel is immaculately clean, has great air conditioning, nice sized rooms, a fantastic breakfast and wonderful staff.

The experience with Sala has been wonderful from beginning to end. Contacting Mr. Thomas for booking went really smooth and coordinating with our arrivals and departures was hassle free. True to all travellers' reviews, we were greeted by the owner himself at the entrance. Despite being located along a narrow, busy street in Male, what greeted us inside was soul... More
