Best honeymoon ever!! ”
No words can describe how wonderful has been our honeymoon at Ja Manafaru. The place and the sunset watervilla are amazing but what really makes the difference is the staff that works there. Our experience host, Irushad, was amazing...Always there to help us in any possible way! Thank you Irushad!! There are 7 differents restaurants, 6 of which were included in our all inclusive package. They all were incredibly good, the only one that could improve is the italian "Andiamo"... But maybe, being italian i'm just to peaky when it comes to eating a pizza! All the people that work there are very kind, attentive and smiley and I do believe this is the key of everything. It was the best honeymoon ever and we'll surely come back one day!!

Perfect place for gateway”
The resort is far from Male, about 75 minutes by seaplane. A bit bumpy and noisy. Except that, the resort is perfect: crystal clear water, white sands, nice staff and delicious food. And maybe because it is quite remote at north, we saw a lot of dolphins when we did the dolphin tour, much more than we saw last time at Mauritius

Absolutely fantastic!”
The staff and service were unbelievably good. The location and property are perfect and impeccable.
We looked at literally every 5 star hotel in the Maldives before selecting JA Manafaru. After spending two weeks in their over the water villa I can sum up the experience in one word: Magic. If you’re looking for the most special place in the world, you've found it. Our 10 year anniversary could not have been any better. Not only one of the most beautiful places we’ve ever been to, but a level of service that makes the Ritz Carlton look like a junior high school warm up. We’ve never felt more taken care of, ever.

paradise”
The location (one hour by seaplane from Male, giving you ample opportunity to see all the beautiful islands below
If you're looking for a once in a life time stay, get the overwater bungalow and enjoy! We loved almost every aspect of the stay. We were on Half Board which was perfect because we're not big drinkers. (BEWARE: Happy hour "buy one get one free" is PER INDIVIDUAL, not per couple as we thought). They tell me they have added some 'lady sized bikes' to enjoy, which is good, the others were too big. You have your choice of 3 or 4 restaurants for your evening meal which certainly 'dresses it up' and takes it away from the buffet feel., Breakfast is a lovely buffet anyway. Watch out for the mosquitos, the Maldives have Chikungunya which is a very uncomfortable and lengthy mutation of the malaria strain. They ARE spraying for mosquitos, but be safe. I did especially appreciate the lounge at the airport both coming and going as well as a complementary tour of Male since our plane left late at night.

Comfortable Rooms and great beach”
friendly staff, great view, nice beach
The water villa was great, big and comfortable room with oceon view from bed and bathroom. The resort include a complimentary 20 minutes spa; which we made an appointment but have to cancelled it due to heavy rain. Resort wanted to charge us half of the spa package when we were not told neither by the Villa Host nor the spa before we made an appointment. The food is fairly expensive and is not up to the quality for the price we pay for.

perfect hotel and great service”
I love the rooms, the food, the amazing view,the staff and the spa
I travel around the world and i visit many places and hotels, but this was the first time I felt like everything was perfect. I love this place, is one of those places that you want always come back. Is the perfect place to relax, and enjoy life. You never get bore there is always something to do, and the food OMG is just so good! starting with the breakfast the perfect buffet there so many thing to choose and all of then are good, We also try all the restaurants and all of them have great food, the bars great cocktails perfect view of the ocean. What can I say I give this resort 10 stars because I think one of the most important thing that make it feel us good is the good service and the friendly staff they always looking after you, they are very helpful and nice and always with a big smile.
