  • 6.0.Good


    So I had made my booking for 2 adults and 1 child age 14, and the booking voucher said all I had to pay was $184. However when I reached the hotel I was told I need to pay an additional amount for child, and was charged $308. The hotel guys asked me if I was told about that, I said no. So I wrote to and they got back saying the extra amount was for the child. I get that, but my question was why this was not informed, either by the hotel or the website earlier. Had this been informed earlier, I would have gone for a more economical option. In addition to this, the hotel added to my confusion with the pick up arrangements. Initially they offered complimentary pick up and drop from airport. When I told them that I was arriving by ferry to Male, they offered to send a bellboy. Then they said they can't. Finally they sent. Apart from this the room is beautiful.

    Convenient transit point for a day in Male

    Good location, a few steps from the sea and convenient for the ferry from Hulumale. Very modern and clean, very attentive service, good view from the restaurant on the 11 floor.

    Luxury Stay Feel from Start to Finish!

    We were very impressed with Samaan Grand from start to finish! We stayed 1 night between flights, and every part of the stay exceeded our expectations. Our resort coordinated with Samaan Grand and they were waiting at the airport for us with a sign when we arrived to Male from our Maldives resort island. There was a lot of traffic and street closures on the way to the hotel but the driver was very skilled and the host was so kind. apologizing for the inconvenience and even carrying our bags to the hotel when the street closure wouldn’t allow their vehicle to drop us off at the door. Checkin was a breeze and the lobby was beautifully modern - this is a NEW hotel with stunning modern architecture and decor. The room itself was very nice with beautiful modern decor, very comfy bed and pillows, great smart home technology for lights, etc, and the bathroom shower was gorgeous. The room and bathroom wasn’t huge but they used every square inch perfectly and it just felt very comfortable and inviting for our overnight stay. There was a Nespresso machine we happily used in the morning (though you do pay for the espresso pods at checkout - which we were fine with). Free Breakfast at the rooftop restaurant was stunning with all glass views and a great breakfast buffet that trended more Indian, but they will make you eggs or an omelette to order. Every staff member was beyond kind and helpful & the ride back to the airport perfection! Very highend feel to this wonderful stay. Impressive!

    Extremely Rude Manager

    Extremely rude manager. I think he does not like westerners. Despite me having made a booking they had oversold the rooms and when I asked to speak to the manager, the receptionist rang him and passed the phone to me, he did not seem at all bothered that I had pre booked and paid yet the hotel had overbooked and the fact that as it was curfew time I was left with no where to stay at almost midnight. Disgraceful behaviour.

    Staff are super helpful and accommodating. Easy pick up to and from the airport. Nice cool ACed room with a good shower. Wish the rooms were a little more sound proof. You can hear the neighbors moving around, as well as the mosques directly next door and their “call to prayer” 5 times a day. Considering this is a transit hotel and most people aren’t spending more than a day here, the noise is not a dealbreaker.

    Lovely hotel. Very friendly staff. Very modern. Lovely breakfast. Free transfers to and from airport. Stayed for one night before flying home and couldnt fault the place. Our room was above the mosque so very loud early morning call to prayer but for us this was a nice experience. They offer ear plugs for those that dont want to hear it.
