        The experience of the stay and food is really wonderful.”

        The hotel owner ,Thomas, is really a hard working guy. His effort makes this hotel a nice place to stay at the small city. If you like Thai food, his restaurant is the best Thai restaurant in Town for no doubt.

        STAFF VERY GOOD”

        Staff members collected us, put us on the airport ferry to go to the hotel and then found a taxi to go to the hotel. . The same went for the reverse. The Maldives are expensive and crowded, and what you pay for a hotel here will get you an outstanding room in most other places. The room did not have windows but you can understand that in jam-packed city like Male. Think long and hard before making a booking in this city.

        We loved our stay at the Sala. Someone from staff met us at the airport and arranged transport back to hotel for us and our luggage. The rooms were well appointed and very comfortable. The Thai restaurant onsite is fantastic.

        Responsive CEO, Staff, Location, Breakfast”

        The best impression for me is that this is a little boutique hotel own by Thomas, the CEO. he is very responsive and can make anything happen. All staff are very helpful. We stayed one night for overlay transfer, everything was very smooth. The hotel is right in the middle of Male so you can walk to see city every where from here. Nice atmosphere in the hotel, good breakfast. I didn't have a chance to try Thai food here but heard from many people that it is a great food. The is a new coffee shop (Modus) just opened 2 months ago opposite from this hotel. The best specialty coffee you must try.

        Little hidden gem in Male. The place is unique - reminded me of Thailand, with beautiful hotel design and really really comfortable mattress - felt like sleeping in the cloud. The food - thai dishes was amazing - well priced. They served really good breakfast - the croissant, pan au choclait came fresh every morning from the best bakery in town. Amazing place and amazing service.

        service, cuisine and ambiance

        let me first say that the restaurant and cuisine is fantastic if you love Thai food... not cheap but then nothing in Male' is. First time we have stayed at the property and Thomas only has four rooms so there is lots of personal attention. Good sleep, great breakfast and very, very attentive and professional staff led by Raj, who has just returned to the property. Thomas is omnipresent and you can feel the warmth and care he very much takes to look after the clients - regardless of nationality.

        Sadly I was leaving the Maldives and this hotel was a great overnighter before flying out. Staff very helpful and even walked me to the nearby ferry port. Would recommend. I didn't get a chance to sample the in house Thai restaurant but looked amazing. The breakfast was delicious and fresh.

        A delight in Male”

        Excellent service, cozy room and delicious breakfast

        It was my first visit to Male and picked Sala after having read many nice reviews on it. I contacted the hotel prior to arrival to get some information and arrange for pick up at the airport and transfer to our next destination. I got very quick replies from Thomas, CEO of the hotel and felt very assured that everything would be smooth. We arrived at Male in a busy Sat evening. His staff met us at the airport and took us to take the ferry to Male. Upon arriving at the pier, many tourists and locals were there trying to grab a taxi or trunk. Luckily, his staff managed to get us a taxi. We arrived at the hotel after a short ride. The room was spacious given that Male is indeed a very small island. We had a tasty breakfast before leaving for the seaplane. They offered a nice selection of bread and the omelette was divine! We spent less than 24 hours at the hotel but were quite impressed by the quality of service. We will definitely return for our next Maldives trip.

        One night layover in Male”

        The hotel was nice, clean and decent for a one night stop before heading to our resort the following morning. It is close to the jetty, so transfer doesn't take too long. The staff meet you at the airport and take care of the rest. Unfortunately we had an early morning transfer so we had to leave the hotel early, which meant not having enough time to enjoy any facilities they had to offer or to check out the capital Island. We managed to make a quick visit to the oldest mosque on the island which thankfully was just a few minutes walk from the hotel.

        Due to our flight leaving early in the morning, I did not want to risk missing flight therefore, we opted to stay in Male the last night of our vacation. I could not of chosen a better host and hotel. Staff and service was impeccable. Raj obviously does alot of training with his staff. The room was perfectly clean. Everything was in the right place. The staff even took us on the ferry and directly to our check-in at airport. All this was included in the price of the room. I only wish I had stayed up long enough to eat in their Thai Restaurant. The island can seem a little intimidating at first because of all the traffic but get out and walk around. The people are friendly and helpful. You will not believe the amount of motorcycles. The hotel is quiet, clean and all the rooms and bathrooms are completely remodeled. You will love it. Oh yes! contact Raj about your arrival at airport and he will even make arrangements to meet you and bring you to hotel. We got boat from resort to Male and took a taxi to hotel. It was fun.

        Male Capital cozy hotel, walking distance from pier, Thai foods

        Without detailed survey map, it will be difficult for everybody to get there but unexpectedly a pick up service was arranged by hotel at the airport. However since that service was not expected nor advised, I was not aware of them and myself just took ferry and walked in the hotel. For the lady visitors, it is a bit scare adventure to walk there alone, because many narrow and dark street we need to walk through. Motorcycle traffic are many and need to pay attention against them. From Pier to hotel walking takes 9 min. Good thing is nice Thai food available at restaurant. Overall, a bit expensive but acceptable choice for stay at Male.

        friendly, helpful staff; location; Thai-themed decor

        Excellent two night stay. We were impressed with this small, 6 bedroom hotel, right in the middle of the busy city streets. The best thing about the hotel was the friendliness of the staff. It really made our stay memorable. They couldn't do enough for you. The hotel is small enough for you to have a very personal service. We also loved the food in the Thai restaurant and sat outside in the cosy little courtyard when we had dinner. Surprisingly, there were no flies or other insects bothering us (early Jan) so I don't know if this was because this is not the 'fly season'. Room was tastefully decorated, though a bit on the dark side - only one very small window with mainly a rooftop view. Free wifi, good selection of English TV programmes, and a small fridge. Bathroom is clean with shower - bathrobes provided. We would definitely stay here again if we come the the Maldives - ideal to stay for a couple of nights before going on to a resort.
