“great place in Male”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

Stayed for 2 weeks on business.... long time.
But was well looked after and the service and staff were brilliant. When you stay that long the Breakfast Menu can get a bit tired !!! but an excellent spread. Go food and great location. Easily the best in Male.

Few downsides that was more specific to the time of my stay -
There was construction in adjoining rooms and it was rather noisy at times. Esepcially weekends.
Roof top restaurant was / is a furnace.

Room Tip: When-checking in you re given the option of getting a higher floor room at a small price. Staying t...

Although the Maldives is alcohol free, a good time can still be had here. This is the only hotel (that I know of) on the main island that has a swimming pool. The views from the pool are amazing - watching the flights and boats come and go.

This is an ideal location for a stop off if you are waiting a long time for a connecting flight.

The drinks (soft) are excellent as is the food and service. Highly recommended.

Good for business stop overs or simply relaxing on the main island.

This is ideal for a stopover. Hotel is just a block away from jetty and a two minute walk. Staff are very helpful. Modern hotel with all amenities, rooms are lovely, bathrooms gorgeous. The roof top pool deck is nice place to end your day. Restaurant on the pool deck serves delicious ice-cream!

Room Tip: Try get a room above the 9th floor!

Nice one night stay before heading to our resort due to late arrival of our flight from Sri Lanka. Hotel is one block away from the jetty but they arrange a car to pick us up and drive 2 minutes to the hotel. This is great so you don't have to carry your luggage to the hotel.
The hotel itself is very modern with friendly efficient staff.
Rooms are basic but has nice flow from entrance to bedroom and shower/toilet areas.
Comfy bed, pillows and linens.
Lime restaurant on first floor had great breakfast selection with wide choice of pastries, breads and asian foods.
Drinks on rooftop bar is nice but the seats near the pool area were all wet due to the close proximity of the water and bar seating design.

Room Tip: some of the 12 floor rooms are under the rooftop gym and you may get the noise of the treadmill if a...

We stayed here for one night after a liveaboard boat for a week. Very impressed from the moment we were met at the dock. We were allocated our room straight away - 9.30 am. (The airport hotel HIH now seems to have a policy of NOT allocating rooms until 2.00 pm - normal time to be able to get room - with no attempt to see if one may be ready earlier).

Lovely smart air conditioned rooms and public areas. Lovely swimming pool area with wonderful view. Cocktails up on roof lovely if pricey. Good meal also at roof restaurant. Really excellent breakfast - there was nothing not on offer!! Well organised departure with all luggage taken care of. Traders have their own speedy boat to take you back to the airport and our luggage was taken right to the departure desk at the airport.

Booked a pedicure which came with a free head and shoulder massage. Lovely girls in the spa, and a good treatment, followed by complimentary sweet ginger tea. Very enjoyable

Altogether very impressed with hotel.

Stayed one night before week on boat at HIH - well, they do have a pool and beach area if you want to get into the swing of your holiday. But Traders much slicker, smarter operation.

Room Tip: We had basic room - still very nice. Very smart and beautifully furnished. Luxurious toiletries...

We stayed at Traders for one night before heading out to our island. The hotel is in a good position, not the Male is that big, and we found the service and rooms excellent. The roof top pool and restaurant were also really good, with great views. A perfect hotel for a few nights.
