They used to have the best Indian food in town but now it's no way near to a genuine Indian restaurant. I had the worst chicken tikka masala. Hope the management will improve and bring the place up to its former glory. With a little bit effort, they can still make this place the best in town.

Indian restaurant with small hotel located in Male. Nothing great about the place but good to crash after work in the city. Centrally located. Indian cuisine and taste is good. Rooms could be better with some refurbishment. Service and staff very good

The Athama Palace hotel in Male is a budget hotel and one of the oldest in the city. The location is its main advantage and there are basic facilities that are offered. But the real benefit of staying in the hotel is the food which is predominantly Indian and there is a bakery which serves all kinds of condiments and... More

Athamaa Palace is one of the oldest hotels in Male and it shows. It's at the main street, in the heart of the capital island - a superb location and could be a marvellous location for a smart little boutique hotel! The rooms are spacious, what I really like, with a TV and plenty of Hindi and some good English... More

Nothing great to write about this hotel except that it is in the ceneter of the market in Male the small island capital of Maldives. It has a good in house Indian eatery and bakery. If you wish to pamper yourself you can choose the distant Island resorts.
