Mookai Hotel
Ranked #20 of 35 Hotels in Male
Reviewed 13 November 2012

The best hotel to stay when you are in Male CIty, the capital of Republic of Maldives. The rooftop swimming pool and sauna bath is excellent and this hotel is overlooking the airport island where you will get a complete view of the sea and different islands. The rooms are very good and the amenities are also very nice . I stayed there in last march.

Room Tip: 2 room apartment room with seperate living room space

We meant to go to Kuramathi Resort but due to a delay, we missed the last sea plane and got stranded in Male. Organised by KUONI, we were put in this hotel. Very disappointed considering we paid £300plus/day for the resort. The room was small and had cob webs hanging off the ceiling and curtains. The staff wasnt friendly at all.

Stayed here for four nights during a business trip. I only read the review below about the bed bugs after the reservation was made; so, naturally I was quite nervous about staying here. It turned out that the hotel is not bad at all considering its price. It’s a pretty standard business hotel, nothing fancy but the facility is adequate. The staff were helpful in getting a taxi for us every morning. The breakfast offered good choices. The hotel is conveniently located within a two-minute walking distance from the airport taxi pier. And no, I didn’t encounter any bed bugs in my rooms, neither did my two other colleagues. It's likely that I would stay here again on my next return.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a higher floor, 5th Floor up..

The only reason I gave another rating than 1, is because they are good enough to let us check out until 1600.
My stay was not satisfying, hotel has no clue about touristic places (hey... its MALDIVES) and they gave us direction to an island only for local, and no id whatsoever.
All the employee, had no smile. The TV remote doesnt work, and when asked for new one, workers came with long face.
What really irritate me, they have no id about things to do in Maldives and even gave wrong direction to one of the island.
One trip is more than enough to this hotel

Mookai Hotel has the advantage of being located right next to the ferry terminal in Male'. However, the quality of room allotted depends on your luck. It could be a damp, poorly lit room or a bright cheerful room with a wonderful view. Rooms are fairly small. There are much better options available elsewhere on the island if one is willing to compromise on the view.

Conveniently located and close to the ferries, the hotel seemed a good option for my 4-day business trip to Male. The first room I got was small and lack of space made the stay not very pleasant.The breakfast table too, was substandard. On top, I felt that the room was not cleaned properly, so I asked, the next day, for another room. The other room was significantly bigger and well maintained. So, I dismissed the idea of shifting ton another place. The night however, was a nightmare. The room was fully infested with bedbugs which I, in the middle of the night, found out would have completely attacked me allover. I asked for new bedsheets and a cleaning but could not really enjoy the rest of the night. THe hotel management next day in the morning did not bother to be pro-active or check in any way. I would surely not recommend this place to anyone, unless this problem is not solved with vigorous treatment..

Located at less than five minutes walking distance from the Jetty, it is ideal for connections to and from the airport irrespective of what time of the day/night you land.
The rooms can be pretty small unless you get one of the better series... the 07 series is good, especially on the seventh floor.
The staff is pretty friendly and helpful.
All in all reasonable for a very short stay on the island.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms ending in 07... these are the better ones.
