Royalty treatment

Meeru island was amazing! The staff are friendly and very accommodating! They never fail to greet you with a smile. We enjoyed the food and drinks. Special mention on the cocktails. They dont taste watered down. The spa, well, lets just say it's heaven on earth. My therapist, Suari was good at her job. Great treatment and great company. The service was excellent! I expect nothing less. Ms Ninnia (Niña) the manager was very friendly. She gave me good deals suited for me and my partner. We'll definitely come back. P.S Don't forget they're spiced ginger tea after the treatment. It's definitely a must-try! KUDOS Team!! See ya next time!!!

An experience of a lifetime!!

Bangalore

*** caution : long review *** Maldives has always been on my bucket list so when it was time to plan my honeymoon Maldives topped my list. After months of research we settled on Meeru and even more months of reading reviews about Meeru we finally clicked the button and booked Meeru. And i must say Meeru did not disappoint! When we arrived at Male we headed straight to the Meeru booth as per the instructions shared. We were greeted and asked to wait while the rest of the guests arrived. We waited for around 45mins before we boarded our speed boat for the transfer. It was a quick 55minute ride and the speed boat was made comfortable (air con and water) for our journey. We were welcomed warmly by the Meeru staff on the island. The check in was very smooth and hassle free. Based on all the reviews i had read, we booked for a water jacuzzi villa in the north side of the island (700 series). The north side is the adults side and more quiet. And i must say i definitely enjoyed the peace and quiet on the north side. Yes it is quite a walk to the main reception, but i enjoyed the odd walk now and then or you can always flag down a buggy! The water jacuzzi villa was explicit! Very well kept and maintained. The house keeping staff do an exceptional job on ensuring your villa is kept spotless especially sand free! There were loads of fishes on the north side and we spent alot of time just snorkeling around the villa and the reefs. We opted for the all inclusive plus (AIP) boarding option and it was worth it. It was less hassle and we made use of all the perks that came with the AIP. As part of the AIP we got a free snorkeling trip to the house reef and a sunset cruise. We got to see dolphins during the sunset cruise. The food was very good. There is always a change at the buffet and you are spoilt for choice. Many cuisines are available and you will definitely not be left hungry at any point of time. The restaurants are very well kept and the service waiters assigned to you give you all the attention required. As part of our honeymoon we were gifted a champagne bottle which was very courteous of them. We were also offered a free one night stay on the Hagern cruise boat. We had a fabulous time on the cruise boat. The food was delicious, service exceptional, the snorkeling trips were amazing (got to see many turtles! 😍) and also we made quite a good group of friends. Muaz was our guide for the cruise and he was fantastic. For my birthday, the husband suprised me with a candle light dinner by the beach side. The resort even gifted me a cake. The dinner was very beautiful and the menu options absolutely delicious. The spa is a small heaven tucked away in this Maldivian heaven!! You have many massages to choose from and they spoil you crazy! We opted for a couples massage and we walked away even more relaxed and floating in air. All in all, we spent 6D/5N (April 26 - May 1st 2018) at the Meeru resort. For a first time Maldives experience i couldn't have asked for more. The staff are exceptional and very courteous. They ensure you have a once in a lifetime experience. Everyone from the reception, house keeping, curio shop, dive team, restaurants, bars and other teams look out for you and make sure you are comfortable. Meeru is also doing a good job on being environmental friendly and I can only hope all the reefs are not bleached in the years to come. Meeru you are an absolute gem of a place and we will definitely be back!!!! 😊
