    The Samman Grand team are exceptional. Friendly, helpful quick to get things done. Having travelled extensively the last 30 years - it is rare to meet such an overall great team and management.

    Fantastic stay. Very clean and modern. The staff was so incredibly helpful. We were going to a resort the next day and the resort called in the evening to let us know they were in lockdown because of covid contact tracing and we would not be able to go. The Samann Grand reception person assisted us in calling and booking another resort right away. For the airport transfers, they arrived on time and helped us navigate to the correct resort contact. They did not just leave us at the airport front door. Location is excellent as well. We were able to walk to the fruit and vegetable market, fish market and Islamic Center. Definitely recommend Samann Grand.

    The towels are old, all 4 days I was there, they don’t have new towels. shampoos and conditioners halfway used. This hotel doesn’t provide any new or sealed shampoo, conditioner or lotion. They just refill the bottle for you I guess. Front desk and restaurant staffs are very good!

    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.

  • 8,0.Very good

    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.
