JA Manafaru Maldives is located on a secluded private island in the far north of the Maldives, surrounded by coral reefs, lagoons, lush tropical vegetation and of course miles and miles of sand and sea. Getting to JA Manafaru Maldives may take a bit of time and involves a transfer on a seaplane, but once you arrive, you will understand why that extra hour or so of travelling was so worth it!
Allow your feet to sink into the softest white sand you could ever imagine as friendly staff welcome you and whisk away your luggage. Relaxation at JA Manafaru Maldives is instant as you take in the crystal clear Indian Ocean gently lapping at the shore; its blue hue contrasting against white beaches and the enormous palm trees gently swaying in the breeze.
Look & Feel
Accommodation at JA Manafaru Maldives is a surf or turf affair as you may opt for a beachfront room or a water villa with glass panelled flooring to view the sea life below. The choice is yours, depending on what your preferences are. However, no matter which area you choose, you will be assured of your own private pool and outdoor dining area as well as lush, luxurious furnishings.
The most arduous task you will have to undertake at this resort is deciding where to eat. Guests are spoilt for choice with seven different restaurants offering everything from traditional Asian and Maldivian cuisine to salads and sandwiches by the pool. But wherever you eat, don’t overlook the seafood which is the freshest and most delicious you will ever taste.
The hotel also boasts a rather impressive below sea level wine cellar that houses a collection of fine vintage wines and hosts wine pairing evenings – yet another dining choice to add to the list.
