Me and my husband stayed in JA Manafaru at the beginning of November and we were very pleased. 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.
You can find many activities on the island, lot of motorized and unmotorized water sports, 7 restaurants and bars. Plus they offer cooking class with maldivian chef, which is a truly amazing experience. Chief chef is also a sweetheart. You can try a dolphin cruise and diving. You will not get bored, for sure. We did surfing class with Jason, who is fantastic. He did a miracle and though it was a first time for my husband, he managed to teach him the basics on the water, which was really great.
The staff is wonderful, well trained, helpful and caring. They are listening to you and reacting to any impulses you may have.
We stayed only 2 nights on the island and did not want to leave. In fact we stayed on four different islands, as we wanted to experience different places. We travelled with Atoll Hideaway who did a wonderful job and helped us to make our dream happen. They work on very professional level. I definitely recommend to travel with them.
