We spent one night at the Sala Boutique Hotel before boarding our dive cruise. This is a small property in the heart of Male. The room was small but comfortable, clean, and well appointed. The staff is friendly and helpful, suggesting places to see in Male and how to get around the city. The Sala Thai Restaurant is connected to... More

We went several times for business and private stay. The rooms have everything you need and the most important thing for a hotel: the bed is soft and comfortable. The room itself is very clean. The staff is really friendly and they do every effort to keep you satisfied and happy. The food not forget to mention: Fantastic!!! From breakfast... More

Lovely, 6-room, little boutique hotel in Male. The hotel is atmospheric, spotlessly clean and the rooms are lovely. Remember, it is a boutique hotel, so it is small. The service by Raj and his team is more than wonderful! We got picked from the airport, dropped off at the hotel, all was taken very well care off. The Thai restaurant... More

We enjoyed our stay at this unique boutique hotel. We arrived very late at the airport, but their staff was waiting for us and transported us very quickly. The service was great and food was delicious. I only wished there was more to do in Male City, as we got bored after the first day.

Male is busy and to find a quiet private hotel there might seem impossible. Sala definitely delivers - it's a beautiful albeit small hotel tucked away in a quiet street. Very friendly owners and efficient service. We were there for only one night en route to another island but would highly recommend it!

We selected sala after so much research on TA and other sites and didn't let us down. We were amazed by the food and service we got there. Small is beautiful. .. food is superior to any other restaurant in male.... especially soups and rice noodles. .... we wish we could stayed there more... Love you sala family
