Sala Boutique is a small 6-room boutique hotel in Malé, the capital of The Maldives. The German owner, Thomas has been in the hotel industry for many years and decided to get his own place. The rates are only half of Traders, but Sala Boutique can offer a different product which many would prefer. Only 6 rooms, intimate feel and an owner that are involved in everything. Starting from breakfast in the morning to dinner in the evening.
Sala Boutique is a Thai themed hotel listed as a B&B on Tripadvisor due to Maldivian rules that every hotel under 10 rooms is a B&B. The rooms are very comfortable with a soft bed, complimentary high speed wireless internet and a shower with great water pressure. Flatscreen Tv and a nicely design overall makes is excellent value for money. The staff are a mix from other Asian countries and they were all kind anf helpful. The hotel has a small spa and a thai restaurant which is said to be one of the best in town, but I was not able to dine here to try it out.
Overall the only boutique city hotel in the Maldives that are up to a good standard. Definitely happy to have experienced it and can highly recommend it. Traders and Sala Boutique are the only two choices to stay comfortable in Malé and it all depends what you like, but Sala Boutique wins for it’s value.
My opinion: Good+ experience.
