We had a great stay at the Mala Boutique Inn. The staff were great and really looked after us. They organised some fantastic tours and provided great meals. Highly recommended!

Mala Boutique Inn is a lovely guest house set in a stunning location. All the staff were extremely helpful and friendly and couldnt do enouh to help. The rooms were cleaned daily, the gardens looked after daily and the dining staff were really great. The rooms themselves were very clean and spacious but could definitely do with a lick of paint and sealant around the windows and doors. We found that the mosquiotos were frequently getting in during the night. It would also be useful if there was a hairdryer and iron available in the room. Overall a great experience

8/10 Very good

We booked to stay at the Mala boutique hotel which we did entirely over the internet. The service was amazing - efficient, helpful and friendly at all times. The hotel organized our transfer from Male by speed boat to Dhangethi, which went off without a hitch (despite our late arrival). We were met at the port by our host who took us to our hotel. The only problem was that we did not go to Mala boutique hotel where we thought we were to stay. We were a little taken aback but later learned that Mala has other establishments and works in collaboration with other hotels during the busy season (which is when we went). But that said, the hotel where we were accommodated was great - clean, comfortable rooms with exceptionally helpful staff. We took a short stroll to Mala Boutique Inn every meal time and ate our meals there. There were amazing. The dining area is a shaded area right on the beach. The food was great, ample choice, fresh and very tasty. All the staff were wonderful - friendly, helpful and nothing was too much trouble for them. The activities offered by the hotel are great, but our stay was short and we did not take advantage of as much as we would have liked. We did, however, go on a trip offered by Dhangethi Watersports (Nadeem) which was a once-in-a-lifetime snorkeling trip. It really was out of this world - the best spot we have ever had the pleasure of visiting and the most amazing service from his team. We would definitely go back, only this time for longer.

Our family diving vacation
Value for money. The property is right next the beach. Like a private beach where you only find hotel guests. It’s 5 minute walk away from the bikini beach and 7 minutes from the water sports area. The restaurant is on the beach and it’s simply amazing to have your meals/coffee/tea etc gazing at the sea. The food is tasty and fresh. The service was great. Service with a smile at all times. The hotel manager Madhih and his team did a great job in ensuring we had a great time during our vacation.

Lovely stay, with its own beach area, where meals were served. They reserve your place on the speed boat and will meet you from the airport if you want. Book your meals with them as very good, can cater for dietary needs. Excellent friendly helpful staff.

6/10 Good

Relativamente bueno.
En primer lugar no nos hospedaron en el Mala porque nos dijeron que no tenia mas lugar, entonces no puedo opinar de este hotel, nos llevaron a otro hotel llamado Endheri Sunset. No nos dieron nada de lo pautado en la reservación. La Garden View era en verdad vista al patio de un obra en destrucción. Faltó TV (no tan importante), mini bar, la silla para la mesa del tocador, water cocker, safe box, cafetera, tetera, te y café. Ni si quiera nos ponían elementos básicos del baño, hubo que pedirlo. Después de tres días de intentar hablar con un responsable, nosotros tuvimos que ir a por él y nos consiguió café, te y calentador de agua. La comida no era de nuestro agrado, entonces nosotros comíamos en el restaurante de la isla. El personal era agradable pero faltaba organización.
