    we stayed overnight at Unima before transiting to private island. The staff is very helpful and friendly - picked up us from airport and carried our luggage to speed boat the second day afternoon. Our room has been upgraded to seaview room as a surprise for our ten years anniversary. Breakfast variety can be better. Overall it is a pleasant stay. Male city has not much to see.

    Not Bad”

    We arrived around 8pm. Therefore, stayed in Unima for the night. Hotel paid for ferry tickets from airport jetty to Male city. After that, we walked to the hotel. It is within walking distance. Probably 5 mins walk. 2 bottle of water around 300ml given. The breakfast was alright. I requested for scrambled eggs and there werent any. Bread and hotdogs were quite ok. When I use soap for cleaning my hands, the slipperiness does not go away. I suspect is the water in Maldives. It happens in Male city and in resort. Overall, I feel that the hotel stay was okay for a night.

    Ideal hotel for a pit stop ”

    The hotel is located down a side road, but near to the ferries to the airport island. Attention to detail has been made on the room design and modern decor. Room was clean with free wifi. Mini bar, nice ensuite, quite a/c. Flat screen TV, nice mood lighting. Disappointing was that there was only a normal size double bed and a little hard for me. Each of the 9 accommodation floors has only 4 rooms. I did find the corridors a little noisy and echoey at night. Male is quite built up, so there was no view from the room. We arrived by ferry into Male from Fuilhidu and had arranged for a collection from the ferry terminal, but there was no courtesy transport with no mention or apology from the hotel. The breakfast was of a high standard with a good view of Male on the 10th floor. The view from the Sun terrace was fantastic. Overall, this hotel is ideal as a pit stop before your onward journey and was good value for money.

    We took a Super Deluxe with Ocean view and stayed 2 nights here. We could see the airport from our room. Breakfast had limited choices still fine though with cereals, pancakes/waffles, fried sausages, omelette etc. Complimentary mineral water and coffee. Toiletries provided except for toothbrush and paste. Location was good as it was near ferry terminal. Do explore the terrace(no lift access) for full city view. 10minutes walk to landmarks such as 350 yo Hukura Miskiy, Grand mosque which can occupy up to 25,000 worshippers on Friday prayers. Overall our stay was enjoyable. Please upload more pics for future travellers. Thanks Unima Grand

    We stayed to this hotel before going back to Singapore. 1 night + 2 way airport transfer & breakfast included on the next day. Male City is the capital of Maldives & where all the local people or Maldivians live. We spent 2days & 1 night there just to see the local people & buy some souvenirs & local products. The hotel staffs are very friendly & helpful. They help us to give direction to the place that we can buy local items & souvenirs, they even print out the map for us. During our hunting for souvenirs we met one local guy, he was very kind & sweet, he was one of the owner of souvenirs shop in the area. He gave us big discount & all his items are very cheap compare to others. He gave us 1 photo album as a gift & he told us to put our Maldives photos on it. So sweet of u Uncle. Next time we visit, we will surely find & meet u again.

    Excellent hotel!”

    Highly recommended for a short stay on Male island. Extremely friendly staff who picked us up from airport, clean and comfortable rooms, and great view on the top floor during the lovely breakfast buffet. Hotel is 2 minutes away from ferry terminal - convenient to transit to airport and surrounding islands. 5 minutes away from artificial beach and pier - amazing! As the hotel is only a few months old, there was still construction going on and the doors weren't sound-proof -- could have an extra security latch as well, just for a peace of mind! Other than that, so perfect! Will stay again if I have the chance.

    Good for "Just-for-a-stay" ”

    My 2nd time stayed due to close to jetty is convenient for my morning flight departure. Be specific, bed, pillow and air-cond are good. On cons : (1) room wifi, always auto logged out and i have to manually logged in again. (b) i have to arrange ferry myself fr airport to hotel (In Agoda, hotel stated "airport transfer included") as hotel told that no staff to pick up from airport after waiting for 30 mins. (3) hotel buffet breakfast choices are below par as Unima Grand claims at 4* hotel - too simple for foreigners every day the same : white breads, red bean, sausage, cut-cake, fruits, hard boiled egg, cereal, coffee/tea.

    Nice place for transit stay”

    We arrived in the late evening and was met by a hotel staff at Male Velana airport who arranged for our ferry tickets to the Hulhumale Jetty and helped us with our luggage. We boarded the ferry with the locals and were picked up by another staff at the jetty with an MPV. After negotiating some small winding roads, we pass through a big road with many potholes and construction ongoing. We were ushered into a small lane where the hotel entrance is located. We were promptly checked in and went to our room. The room was clean and modern with new light fittings and USB ports. The following day we had a good breakfast at the level 10 restaurant with a good view of the airport. There is a rooftop terrace as well with a good view of the surrounding. Upon check out, we waited a while for transport back to the airport where the representative from our next resort will pick us up. As the hotel car has gone out far, the hotel arranged a bell boy to taxi us to the jetty pier. Overall good service.

    Driver arrived shortly after i called the hotel, and with the new bridge linking the airport to male, journey was about 20-30 mins. Hotel is near the link bridge and near the main street cutting across the island. Bf was decent at the restaurant at the top of hotel with a nice view. Room was fairly large and a/c and toilet working fine. A very decent value for money stay in male.
