Visited as a quick stop over before travelling to an island resort the following day.

The hotel offered free transfers to and from the airport and were on the ball on arrival, offering refreshments and cold towels.

Room basic, clean and well equipped.

A great place to head to as a short stop!

Thanks to the helpful staff.

A decent budget hotel, but not much value for money. No good views or extra amenities for the price paid...breakfast was manageable though the 10th floor restaurant offers a nice view of Male...staff were friendly, although..........
There was a chubby girl at the lobby whom we had to endure during the final day of our 4-day visit. man she was RUDE! And without any apparent reason!! She wont respond properly, wont smile, wont give us access to printouts for getting our covid reports, wont try and n call a cab for taking us to airport!! At the last moment, she simply put us out on the street with our luggages and literally said find a way to get to airport!!
The hotel cudve been an easy 4 for me but she made me feel like giving 1 or less. Sad!

The hotel's (Unima Grand Hotel) common areas, the rooms, the toilets, the restaurant are clean.

There isn't any gym in the hotel. That's too bad for someone which has planned to stay there three days while the circulation in the city being prohibited due to the quarantine measures. There is a very small market on the ground floor that is selling souvenirs.

No other facilities exist.

One day we asked the receptionist to bring us water and the stuff responded with willingness.

About the food. There is a small buffet. Lunch and dinner, with two kinds of meat.  Chicken, or beef, or fish as the main dishes. The side dishes are two of the following rice, pasta, potatoes, or steamed veges. There is enough soup. A small dish of one kind of salad which contains 5-6 portions. A few slices of apple, or watermelon, or papaya. One kind of fruit each time. Also there is onky one kind of sweet desert. All the dishes are too spicy. There is a lot of Coca Cola. 

Breakfast is poor. Only small boiled eggs. There is no choice to take or to order an omelette or scrambled eggs. There are, beans, rice, chicken sausages, Indian food (two of the following: Dhal curry, chicken curry, spicy fish), tuna salad, chapatti, bread for toasts, corn flakes, cereals, milk, orange or apple juice from a carton box (no fresh).
If someone is ''late'', one hour before the serving is over, he won't find some main dishes, or he will have them in small amounts, while sometimes they wouldn't fill them up. In another occasion there was no more dessert and when we told the waiter to refill it, he brought us instead of this a sweet cream.

The stuff is polite and willing.

I travel into Male' quite a lot on business, over the last 2 years I have been placed in other hotels in the city but this has been by far my most enjoyable stay.

Modern and boutique, the hotel is situated within a short taxi ride to the airport and a short walk to the local shops etc, a short taxi ride will take you further in, on taxis, rates are set so expect to pay MVR25 ($1.70) withn Male' and MVR60 ($3.90) to the airport, though some taxis will try for more as expected anywhere in the world.

Unima Grand reception staff were very welcoming and helpful, answering my many queries on where to get a haircut to best place to find some new clothes (out a bit of weight on). Room service was prompt when required, they would order a taxi which would promptly arrive within 5 minutes.

The room, though small was very clean, modern and adequately appointed for my needs, tea/coffee/mini bar refreshed daily and bedding every 2 days. My view, not that this matters to me for this trip, overlooked back over the harbour area and towards the airport, get up early and watch dolphins (I think) jumping around.

The food in the upstairs restaurant was exceptionally good, staff very courteous and polite, food was cooked to a higher standard than that of other similar hotels I have stayed in in Male'.

N.B. As this trip was during the Covid pandemic important to note that the hotel and staff followed all set protocols including mask wearing (provided one if you didn't have one) hand sanitization all around the hotel and temperature checks.

I spent 12 night there on this trip, I do not normally request specific hotels when I have to go to Male', but from now on I will request the Unima Grand.

The hotel is nice, with the rooms having just enough space. It's not a resort so don't expect the rooms to be very spacious. It has a nice reception and an elegant restaurant. The view from the restaurant is mesmerising.
This is just a normal hotel, however, it had a X factor, that was the service. There were 2 girls at the reception always ready to help Jagdeep and Sonia. We gave numerous calls to the reception and it was so comforting cause you would get help for all your request.
We went to the Maldives to celebrate a few birthdays which came in the same week. One of the kid had his first birthday and we wanted to put up some decoration which we got from India. The staff was kind enough to help us put up the decoration on the roof and also gave us a complimentary cake for birthday celebrations.
After checkout when we reached the airport we realised that my wife forgot her jacket at the hotel, we called the hotel and the driver came back to the airport again to handover the jacket.
As reviews we were expecting normal service, however, they stood out in service with the X factor.
If you want to visit Male it is one the hotels you can stay, doesn't have a swimming pool, however, there is an artificial beach nearby.
There are a lot of restaurants nearby and a lot of shopping can be done also.
Again Kudos to the staff for the service, including the people in the restaurant.

The only disadvantage of this property is that being in In midst of city, it cannot think of offering the luxury of open spaces.

Everything else is way beyond expectation.

Location is better thing the best be it in terms of convenience, monetaririly, travel time, or modes of transport available.
Unima Grand is like the JW Mariott of Male in terms of location.

Service is top notch.
Food quality is excellent, icing on the cake being that every staff member of the restaurant is fully informed about every dish, the ingredients used and its final taste on the tongue.

The view from the restaurant is to die for.

Ms. Minimol at the front desk is not an employee but an angel sitting for customer service.

Mr. Tanmoy Pal the restaurant manager is the hotel's greatest asset. A great team leader and an equally incredible gem of the hospitality industry giving personalised attention to every guest of every table dishing out perfect custom made requirements ably supported by a super trained team especially by Ms. Diary.

The faces of the Housekeeping staff are Muzzammil and Raghu who have set highest standards of upkeep.

Though I dont remember the name but front desk and housekeeping staff working on thru the night shift are surprisingly out of the world.

Warmth, service, courtesy, hygeine, amenities are all of high standard which is all a customer needs.

Another efficient service is their amazing airport transfers.

Great going. Never let this great work go down.

Unima grand is given as a 4 star hotel in one of the hotel booking sites and I booked a superior double room based on that. However, the amenities / facilities were way below that of a 4 star hotel. 
To start with, there was no airport pickup as assured and I had to call them twice and wait for around 30 minutes for the pickup to come. Had informed the reception about the airport drop, the previous day. However, there was no vehicle arranged for airport drop, and finally they arranged a local old taxi.
The room size was very small and hardly any space to move around. Couldn't open the bathroom door fully as it was touching the bathroom sink. So one has to slide into the bathroom, move to one side, close the door and then use the sink. Similarly, the shower partition was very close to the toilet commode, and had to sit sideways in the commode. 
Rooms were clean though and the room service was very good.

I have been to this hotel couple of times. This is a very good hotel for business travelers. That being said, this is by no means a comfortable hotel for vacation travelers, as most of the hotels in Male' city, rooms are tiny and the facilities are bare minimum. However, the reason for my four star review is the comparative quality of the stay (compared to other hotels in Male' city)

The hotel is conveniently located and has a good view of the airport (to the top floor).

The breakfast buffet does not have many options, but the options available are good in flavor. There are many restaurants walking distance from the hotel if you need some variety.

The hotel is generally clean, however, there is a room for improvement in cleanliness.

The staff may not be very professional, however, they are friendly and helpful. From what I saw, the top management (and owners) are family members who maintain a good relationship with the junior staff.

In one of my stays they charged extra for early check in however, in all my other stays they offered early check in free of charge and once even offered late check out without an additional fee.

I think I can comfortably recommend this hotel for business travelers considering the friendly and flexible service offered by the staff.
