Traders Hotel is The Maldives only business hotel, located in the capital of Malé and managed by Shangri-La. Traders is only a 5 minutes ferry ride and 1 minute walk from the international airport of Malé making it a very convenient hotel to start or finish your Maldivian trip.
Tranders Hotel has rates starting at 250 dollars pr. night in low season for a standard Deluxe Room which I stayed in. The room is perfect for short stays and excellent for business travelers. Comfortable bed, flatscreen Tv, wonderful rain shower and fantastic bathroom amenities. The Internet is complimentary and fast by Maldivian standards. Service is a bit more professional here than most of the Maldivian island resorts and it was great to experience. The restaurant staff especially impressed me where I had a good breakfast and dinner. Their dinner buffet had a very good selection of food including very tasty pizzas which I always find had to resist.
The facilities includes a gym, meeting facilities and a swimming pool that are currently under construction. Overall a very pleasant experience and highly recommended in Malé. You can count on both Traders and Sala Boutique so if you can only choice one the decision will have to do with your personal preference.
My opinion: Good+ experience.
