Like everyone else, we needed overnight accomodation before flying out to our resort the next morning. After doing plenty of research on Male accomodation, it seemed pretty clear its overpriced and not of a great standard. So the challenge was to not feel entirely ripped off after checking out of one of these places. Boutique inn did acheive that. It still ended up being $100 US after all the taxes but it was clean enough as our expectations werent high. The bathroom was pretty dirty with half used mini shampoo bottles laying around with the labels peeling off. Having travelled through the sub continent which holds similar accomodation I did just laugh it off though. The room was Tiny! Not much room after the makeshift double bed (two singles pushed together) to get the door open. The service was friendly enough.
In summary, knowing how comparatively cheap this place is compared to other options I think some peoples expectations are unfair. It was a few hours of our life spent mostly sleeping in the airconditioning before heading off to paradise.
