We'd written a long review about our stay at Champa due to our rather surreal experience, but are restricted by number of characters so this is a short summary. Not sure how it has such reasonable reviews. Room was small with incredibly dated furniture, thin mattress, low quality pillows and sheets etc. The photographer responsible for the photos on the website did a far superior job to their interior decorator as we were expecting something far better. The dining room was closed "due to two functions" that we never saw anyone attending despite going through the lobby twice during the evening. We had a coke (no alcohol) at sunset on the roof terrace and were the only people there. The room service food we ordered (appetizers) didn't quite reach the appetizing part of the description. The fire alarm went off in the middle of the night and we received no information as to what was going on, after checking the corridor and stairway we phoned reception to be told it was a false alarm. There was no co-ordinated evacuation. If there were other guests resident, none of them left their rooms. Staff at check-in were nice, but that was the only good thing about our stay. We were recommended Champa by our atoll resort that we were transiting to next day on the basis that it was one of the best in Male, we're honestly not sure why they sent us there. Maybe we got the worst room in the place, and caught the staff on a busy, bad or off night. Hope you have a better experience.
