    Clean, convenient and friendly

    If you're looking for a no frills but clean and comfortable stay in Male, Skai Lodge is the place to go. It's an easy walking distance from the airport ferry and the staff were really helpful in giving us information and helping us get to our next destination. The hotel is basic but clean and has a cute little courtyard. Male is a fantastic destination and should definitely be experienced as part of your trip to the Maldives!

    Value hotel near ferry to airport”

    About 5 minutes from the airport ferry drop off on Male by taxi, about $5 USD (fare plus baggage charge) on a narrow street, they will pick you up for $10USD if you want but we made it there on our own no problem. They had English speaking reception people who got us checked in and up to our room on the 1st floor, Room 6 at the back (quiet) had a balcony with a view of the next building and house rooftops between, just a place to step outside. The room was clean, TV (many South Asian & some English channels), fridge, kettle, carafe, tea/coffee, two single beds, sitting chairs, telephone, desk/chair, towels, shower with curtain, shampoo, body wash, 2 extra outlets at table for convenient charging and strong wi-fi. The room was a bit dim, one of the two lights was out but had a window. Breakfast was juice, fresh fruit toast, omelette and tea/coffee served when you want from 7-10 am. There are a couple small stores across the street and a larger grocery store, Agora located less than 5 min walk away, great selection of everything. Also, there are 2 short eats places nearby, one in each direction out of the hotel. This is a good value hotel if you are trying to keep the costs down and could stay again if passing through.

    Avoid staying in Male altogether”


    I paid good money to stay there and it's really pretty bad. It was noisy, construction all around and until after dark. Place smelled like mold. It's old and it's not clean. Yet, I paid double than this wonderful place I stayed in Maafushi. Go figure. The problem is, there aren't any good options in Male. Everything is expensive and has very bad reviews. I actually changed my flights so that I wouldn't have to spend another night in Male. My best advice would be to make sure you plan your arrival and departure properly so that you don't have to spend the night. Happy travels!
