Reviewed 3 August 2012

Stayed 1 night in late July. Booked via booking.com Met on arrival at Male airport by a member of the hotel staff and then accompanied by boat to Male, and then by taxi to the hotel. Owner very charming and lovely to talk to. Place looks pretty new, beautifully laid out. Our room was spacious and everything was top quality. Got a great night's sleep there before moving on the next day. We also ate there in the owner's Thai restaurant. Good food and prices seemed reasonable. The following day, we headed to the Taj Exotica. The owner of the Sala Boutique Hotel knows the Taj Exotica General Manager and was able to give us a day rate of US$85 per person to go to the resort for the day, and that included US$45 worth of food and drink credit. Overall, we had a lovely stay in the Sala Boutique Hotel and wouldn't hesitate for a moment to go back on our next trip to the Maldives. Oh, and breakfast was also very good!

I have one night here in Male & i was very satisfied with my stay in Sala Boutique Hotel Male. It's not far from the ferry station, you can walk. The food in this hotel is very good. Its service is wonderful from the Boss to staffs. They are always helpful & friendly. Room is not big but very clean & comfortable. I love this hotel much.
Suggestion: Thai food in this hotel is really yummy you should try!

Room Tip: Choose Bangkok Room which is big

This hotel gets top marks for how they responded to our complaints. My friend had one horrible night with the shower drain overflowed and cockroaches appeared. They offered to waive her room charges, cancel the second night of reservation and gave us the lunch on the house. Breakdowns can happen in any hotel. IMO the true value of good management is judged on how they respond to crises and they handled it perfectly.

The rooms are large and nicely furnished in Thai style. The breakfast was excellent. The restaurant serves excellent Thai food, especially the desert. It seems to be one of the most popular and best places to eat in town. The decor is also great. They provided free transport to the port upon checkout.

We had to spend a night on Male En route to the Soneva Fushi resort.

Prior to our arrival at this lovely little hotel we had been in correspondence with the owner, Thomas, who arranged for one of his staff to meet us at the airport.

Our bags were whisked to the ferry and after a quick boat journey to Male, we were taxied to the hotel. Everything went to a well rehearsed plan.
Our room was delightful and comfortable, the service completely faultless, and the Thai food was delicious, better than many Thai restauraunts in Bangkok. It takes a lot to impress my Thai wife when it comes to Thai food, but she gave the chef a clear 10/10.

Our host was most attentive and we enjoyed his company - we will certainly be going back again.
In the morning the procedure was reversed after an excellent breakfast and we were delivered to the Soneva agent at the airport who looked after us in the private lounge until time to catch the seaplane on to Soneva Fushi.
Thomas has the Sala boutique Hotel running like a well oiled machine and his experience and eye for detail show at every turn.
Excellent little hotel, Very highly recommended.

The room is clean, very good service.
It's nearby the jetty with walking distance about 10 min.
On arrival to Male airport the hotel rep met us in the airport n brought us to the hotel.
N the food is surprisingly good!! We even went back for Thai food before we depart! I think the food is much more better than the 5 star hotel Thai restaurant!! I love the TomYum!! Yummy!!!
