Unquestionably the best part of one's stay at Sala Boutique Hotel is the service. We traveled into Male after an island stay and were met at one of the city piers by someone from the hotel. This had been prearranged by our resort hotel and we had no issue getting a mid-afternoon pickup. We traveled to the hotel by taxi... More

We booked Sala Boutique Hotel for our overnight stay in Malè before heading out to our resort island. Upon arrival at airport, around 3 pm, we were met by the hotel representative who whisked us off to the ferry that transported us to Malè. A taxi was awaiting at the other end and within minutes we were at hotel....excellent service... More

How do I put into words how wonderful this hotel is. It was a rainbow on our rainy day. My husband and I had booked another hotel that ended up being less than our living standards so we scrambled to book a hotel. When I remembered that the Thai restaurant I wanted to go to had a hotel. Lucky for... More

This was a really lovely hotel. It has an enclosed courtyard at the front and the smell of incense oil in the air. The rooms are very beautiful with incredibly comfy beds. It's 5 minutes' walk from the waterfront and jetties, but the owner, who is very accommodating, will arrange for all transfers - to and from airport and jetties... More

For our first trip to the Maldives, we decided to book for two nights in Male before going on to Bandos resort - assuming that a resort would not exactly give one an idea of the 'real Maldives'. This was a very good idea, and I am glad I read the mostly very good reviews of the Sala Hotel to... More

We stayed for one night at Sala. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We were picked up at the airport (the rep was on time/smiling/friendly), taken onto the ferry and then escorted in a short cab ride to the hotel/restaurant. The hotel/restaurant is well located and the food is quite decent (but expensive for what it is), the restaurant... More

A Thai style hotel with very good western breakfast. It's a quite little world in Male city. The hotel has nice furniture selected from Thailand by the owner. The service is also very good. there is a thai restaurant in the hotel, environment is really good and seems a expansive one.

My friends and I checked in Sala Boutique hotel at night after 2 nights staying in resorts. When we mentioned to resort people that we were going to visit Male and stay in this hotel, people showed us a different face.

I found the the Sala Boutique hotel on tripadvisor. Unlkie most folks who come to the Maldvies, I was coming for work and, while I had a reasonable per diem allowance, it wasn't at the level of a tourist hotel or resort. Enter the Sala. I took a chance ... due diligence only gets you so far when trying to... More
