  • This is to all intents and purposes the official residence of the President of the Maldives, although the same currently dwell in a Palace bigger and with other conditions. It is not possible to make any visit and only serves as a historic monument that is observable from the street.

  • Sultan Shamsuddin III built the former Presidential Palace, Muleeaage, for his son just before the First World War. However the Sultan was deposed and his son never took office. In 1953, with the declaration of the First Republic, the building was designated as the Presidential Palace and remained so until the new Presidential Palace at Theemuge was built. Now Hilaaleege is the official residence of the president and Theemuge is the Supreme Court.
  • Former official residence for the President. It is very colourful and at a glance looks like a school. Located across the road from Friday Mosque. As the gate is closed it is not possible to see what's inside.

Where to stay in Male

Due to the city's dense population, you may be hard-pressed to find spacious accommodations at any time of year in Male. If you're here in transit to one of the surrounding resorts, you may not be able to avoid Male's high prices, as transfers to the islands are generally only possible during daylight hours. The rooms in the hotels, bed and breakfasts, and guesthouses of Male are on the whole clean, if basic. For more affordable options head to the nearby isle of Hulhumale: a ten-minute boat ride away, this spot proves popular with backpackers.
