“Very convenient to airport transport and better than average rooms”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

Although listed as a five star hotel, that is stretching the definition a bit but the Mookai does have a small rooftop pool and other amenities that put it in a three star business hotel class. There is no restaurant but there are many decent western, Chinese, Thai and Indian restaurants nearby so that is not a problem though of course you cannot put the meals on the bill. Some rooms have a tiny balcony but it is not even big enough for a chair though it is nice for early morning views and opening the door allows the sea breeze to refresh the room. A TV with international channels, small refrigerator, small but adequate shower with hot water (give it time, the water does get hot but it takes a while) and supplied bottle water, coffee and tea facilities. The room I had on the 5th floor was very clean, reception manned 24 hours a day, in room phones capable of receiving outside calls (but routed through reception) and the two lifts were conveniently located and adequately sized for baggage and people together. The one problem are was that there was only one electrical outlet in the room so with today's multiple computer/phone/tablet charging requirements, a multiple output adapter may need to be purchased locally. Pricing is typical for Malé and with its good location and decent rooms, it is a good choice for the business traveller.

Room Tip: Rooms facing opposite hotels have a pretty limited view. Those facing the airport island and sea hav...

One night in this hotel situated 100 meters far from the ferry station of Hulumale and Lulumale. It is not exactly the best as Hotel. In the room large enough, lack electrical outlets, the only available in bathroom that is small and obvious water stains in the ceiling and shower is unclean. The sheets are obvious signs of wear, but seemed clean. Friendly staff as almost all Maldivians. Do not return to this Hotel

An average business hotel it may be, but it has comfortable, clean rooms, excellent views and a small, but very refreshing swimming pool on a tropically luxuriant terrace. It is located right near the waterfront where most of the ferries leave from. Easily walkable from the airport ferry even with a suitcase. It is ideal for spending a night before you take your ferry to your island the next day.

Room Tip: For a lower rate they rent rooms for up to 8 hours if you have time to kill before your flight or fe...

The best hotel to stay when you are in Male CIty, the capital of Republic of Maldives. The rooftop swimming pool and sauna bath is excellent and this hotel is overlooking the airport island where you will get a complete view of the sea and different islands. The rooms are very good and the amenities are also very nice . I stayed there in last march.

Room Tip: 2 room apartment room with seperate living room space

We meant to go to Kuramathi Resort but due to a delay, we missed the last sea plane and got stranded in Male. Organised by KUONI, we were put in this hotel. Very disappointed considering we paid £300plus/day for the resort. The room was small and had cob webs hanging off the ceiling and curtains. The staff wasnt friendly at all.

Stayed here for four nights during a business trip. I only read the review below about the bed bugs after the reservation was made; so, naturally I was quite nervous about staying here. It turned out that the hotel is not bad at all considering its price. It’s a pretty standard business hotel, nothing fancy but the facility is adequate. The staff were helpful in getting a taxi for us every morning. The breakfast offered good choices. The hotel is conveniently located within a two-minute walking distance from the airport taxi pier. And no, I didn’t encounter any bed bugs in my rooms, neither did my two other colleagues. It's likely that I would stay here again on my next return.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a higher floor, 5th Floor up..

The only reason I gave another rating than 1, is because they are good enough to let us check out until 1600.
My stay was not satisfying, hotel has no clue about touristic places (hey... its MALDIVES) and they gave us direction to an island only for local, and no id whatsoever.
All the employee, had no smile. The TV remote doesnt work, and when asked for new one, workers came with long face.
What really irritate me, they have no id about things to do in Maldives and even gave wrong direction to one of the island.
One trip is more than enough to this hotel
