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. I cant find fault from the service right from picking up us at the airport until the time to leave. The receptionist Vinoth and the owner Thomas are all so... More

It was one of the best Hotel stays i have ever had in my 5 years in and out of Maldives! Room and bathroom was exceptionally clean, bed was so soft and comfortable, the scents of the ambiance, friendly and warm service from the staff and most importantly feeling safe and secured in Male town. The Owner, Thomas sets the... More

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
