Great hospitality at the resort. The staff are very friendly and address to our needs. Special thanks to our host, Snow, for making our stay so pleasant. Highly recommended to try all inclusive package as food are expensive in Maldives. Must try snorkelling in Maldives. Thanks to Basil, snorkelling instructor from Best Dive, for making me feel comfortable in the sea. And also thanks for sharing your experience and knowledge about snorkelling and coral reefs.

we stay sunset water villa for 5 nights, the sunset view is really amazing, room include small infinity pool and swing, really lovely and romantic environment. room are big and clean, they will clean up room 2 times per day, lucky that we can join the beach side party , that's wonderful night. strongly suggest to join all inclusive package, pricing of 3 restaurant is expensive if you are not joining all inclusive package, it take around US$220 / dinner. although the price is high , environment, services, rooms, view is worth !!

Excellent honeymoon location”

Far away from male but it's an excellent hideaway location. Special thanks to our villa host, Irushad Hassan for making our short stay enjoyable. Seamless service on the transfer. The food are served with minimum standard and qualify with fine dining standard. There are activities to keep us busy. The only drawback is the transfer cost is high.

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.

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.

L'unica cosa negativa è che si trova a 75min di idrovolante da Male' il che arrivando e partendo dall'Italia bisogna fare attenzione perché il viaggio può diventare molto lungo. Ottima la spa con i suoi massaggi e trattamenti. Diving center specializzato X tutte le età e molto professionale con istruttori selezionati X lingua e livello. Servizio qualità cibo ottimo e buffet mattina unico. Insomma un posta da sogno

4年前に初めて訪れてから、自然の美しさは全く変わっていません。3月は、ボートから海底が見えるほど透明な海でした。リゾートは、どんどんアップグレードして、スタッフもサービスもヴィラも食事なども申し分ないです。スタッフはいつも笑顔で、こちらのリクエストに応えてくれて、自分の家に居るより、遥かにリラックスできました。朝のビュッフェは、食べ切れないほど種類が豊富で、1週間以上の滞在でも全然飽きません。マーレの空港から遠く、移動時間がかかりますが、それを忘れるくらいに素晴らしい休暇になりました。また、是非、訪れたいです。
