A superb all-round island retreat

Jul 18, 2019

June/July 2019

First villa (251)was not acceptable, as there was a constant smell of smoke from the incinerator. We were first told that we would have to pay for another villa (jacuzzi beach villa) as no other beach villas were available. We were quite disappointed by this response, as this was our 4th visit to Meeru, and we were missing the empathy and sympathy we were accustomed to. Only after we involved our travel agent , who contacted you immediately, we were told we would be moved to villa 647 free of charge. This villa was ok. Nice to note that all drinks in the mini bar are now included in the AI package. However, disappointed to note that no spirits were in the mini bar. It would have been nice to have a nice drink in the evening on your own decking. Big compliments to all waiting, bar and room staff. Always friendly. Overall, we had a great time, although noted that prices for BBQ and other dinners have gone up a lot. We were sad to notice that the life in the lagoon was greatly diminished and is getting more and more covered in sea grass. Overall, we had a great time

Snorkelling is amasing

Doha, Qatar

My fifth trip to Meeru and it never disappoints! we paid extra on upgrade to beach jacuzzi villa. Food is amasing with a long trail of vegetarian dishes. Snorkelling was organised very well and we made it twice. Check out went very smooth though we asked for early departure. we, however, noticed a minor miscommunication on reserving snorkelling on phone which was confirmed to us but our names were not on paper. And also when we communicated our plans changed on departure the staff were surprised when we approached for check out. I suggest the handover of the important information should be taken with attention.
