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. They met us at the ferry from the airport with a taxi and escorted us to the hotel. We were taken back the same way when we checked... More

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

This is a small hotel run by an expat German gentlemen and I must say he has maintained great standards, one can feel the personal effort made by him in every aspect of the hotel, whether it is the ambience or the food or the service....I spent two nights and am extremely satisfied with the hotel...

Had an impromptu stopover at this hotel after cancellation of flight home from Male airport. Hotel is centrally situated - we had some concerns during our taxi journey from airport as we were taken down some fairly dodgy looking back streets, at one stage my wife asked me if we were being abducted !! Outside of hotel is not terribly... More

A quiet oasis in the centre of Male. It's a small family-owned boutique hotel linked to a very good Thai Restaurant. The hotel is located on the north/centre area, very close from the jetties and most of the offices in Male. The rooms are elegant and spacious, with beautiful furniture, photos & paintings. Everything has been chosen with a lot... More

I originally booked the traders hotel for one night as we land at night and didn't want to take a late speedboat transfer for one hour straight after getting off a 6 hour flight. Anyway, the traders hotel was expensive and I really wasn't sure that it was worth it for a few hours sleep. So happens I came across... More

This hotel is a beautiful oasis in the middle of Male. The rooms are comfortable, all have natural light (windows) (despite what lonley planet says (like to know who does their research)), the restaurant has fantastic Thai food, the massages and pedicure were all great, their juices rock (remembering you can't get alcoholic beverages), and the owner and his team...

We stayed at Sala for one night since our flight on Emirates arrived in the evening. We were to continue to on to our resort the next morning. The bed was extremely comfortable, which after a long day of travel we appreciated. Thomas, the general manager is amazing. Our resort in the Laamu atoll had our arrival date all wrong... More

Incredible value for what you get! I stayed here for one night at the end of my trip and one night at a less expensive hotel at the beginning of my trip. Sala Boutique Hotel is where I would stay again if I were to return to Male. The free breakfast is fantastic; unlike many other hotels it's not an... More
