After warm welcome we got dropped at our beach villa, though it is a basic category it offers unbelievable amount of space, both indoor and outdoor.

We enjoyed our quiet holiday and also the friendliness of staff and management very much. The food in the romantic restaurants is excellent, villas are newly and tastefully furnished. The beach is gorgeous, in spite of this invite the two different pools for swimming and chilling. What else could you want more?

As the most northern hotel in the Maldives, JA really makes you feel like you are in the middle of paradise, in total seclusion. I have stayed in the Maldives twice before, and each island has something a little different to offer.

Excellent property, must stay in a water bungalow! Arranged lovely excursions for us each day, dolphin cruise, snorkelling, wind surfing, jet skiing, etc. Our villa host and all the staff were extremely courteous and hospitable. Would definitely recommend a visit!

We stayed at Beach House Iruveli in early April 2014 for 7 nights in one of the overwater bungalows. The island is truly beautiful and what you expect a true 'tropical paridise' to be! The resort had beautiful white sandy beaches around almost the entire island, with a number of palm trees next to the beaches and a lush forest... More
