We had to spend a night on Male En route to the Soneva Fushi resort.
Prior to our arrival at this lovely little hotel we had been in correspondence with the owner, Thomas, who arranged for one of his staff to meet us at the airport.
Our bags were whisked to the ferry and after a quick boat journey to Male, we were taxied to the hotel. Everything went to a well rehearsed plan.
Our room was delightful and comfortable, the service completely faultless, and the Thai food was delicious, better than many Thai restauraunts in Bangkok. It takes a lot to impress my Thai wife when it comes to Thai food, but she gave the chef a clear 10/10.
Our host was most attentive and we enjoyed his company - we will certainly be going back again.
In the morning the procedure was reversed after an excellent breakfast and we were delivered to the Soneva agent at the airport who looked after us in the private lounge until time to catch the seaplane on to Soneva Fushi.
Thomas has the Sala boutique Hotel running like a well oiled machine and his experience and eye for detail show at every turn.
Excellent little hotel, Very highly recommended.
