Throughout, remarkably spacious accommodation with private pools offers profound privacy and comfort. Three restaurants serve BBQ prime cuts to exquisite Nikkei cuisine.

Truely the best resort experiences in Maldives , we have stayed in other resorts here and they are not comparable. We spent 5 nights at Raffles Maldives in June and felt like royals everyday there , all the staff at the resort were extremely friendly , attentive and professional in their role. Beach Villa and Overwater Villa were kept and maintained in mint conditions , rooms were very clean and tidy throughout , Raffles provided all accessories we needed for a perfect vacation stay here , from face masks ,sun hats, hand sanitiser gift pack to snorkelling equipments for our kids , they all loved the Raffles turtle toy so much ! We were greeted by our butler Adi at the airport upon arrival then well looked after each day with 24/7 hospitality until the departure flight, Adi was super caring and professional in his role. The resort manger Jeffery was simply world class in every perspective , thank you Jeffery for the pre-dinner drink at the Long Bar , our family spent a great night there ! The Faru Kids Program lady Pannisa was outstanding , our girls spent memorable time making origami , painting ,crafting etc in the workshop and couldn’t wait to go back the next day. Finally the credit goes to the F&B team , every single meal we had while starting in this resort were world class and beyond expectations from the food presentation to the taste in your mouth , each truely outstanding , as Foodies we can tell the food here at Raffles are being created with true passion and love , not just merely food on the table , so thanks to the F&B manger Shan for his great work. But who would have thought the highlight above all was actually the Bakery Basket, yes the bread , before each individual meal we were served with amazing varieties of bread , croissants ,butter and dips , these are specially made differently everyday, every time . guess what ? All the bread were served freshly warm and hot from the oven. I bet there is not many other places you would have taste dinner bread like this around the world , so a big big thumbs up to the Pastry Chef Suranga for his excellent work of art in Pastry making ,your Bakery Baskets were truely Magnificent , it has become an unforgettable memory for all of us at the Raffles Meradhoo . And that’s only above the water and sea level ! Below the sea level , it was constantly pristine water with 20-30m visibility , I was greeted with a local resident sea turtle within 15 mins snorkelling out from our Villa , apparently there were 26 resident sea turtles and I managed to see 5 of them during my free diving adventures around both islands , I could go on and on about all the beautiful sea life and corals around this resort island that I have discovered such as reef fishes and sharks , clown fish, blue travelly, lionfish, grouper, sea cucumber , moray eels, giant clams, honeycomb oysters, hermit crabs , crayfish , conch shells etc etc. I felt like I would have met half of the “Fishes of the Maldives” in my 5 days stay , just free diving in the Raffles Meradhoo islands .

My wife and I stayed at Raffles Maldives in late May / early June in one of the overwater villas and had an amazing experience. The room is fantastic: large, beautiful views, snorkling just off the villa with diverse marine life. The food at all the restaurants was delicious and our butler, Salem, was incredibly helpful, responsive, accommodating, and kind. Also a special thanks to the great service from the spa: Lia was a wonderful therapist!

It was our honeymoon to Raffles Maldives and it was wonderful experience in my life. Services provided by Raffles was amazing. They provided us Lounge at the airport, carrying service from the airport, etc. Also, our personal butler, Nasru, was a fantastic guy. He always cared us very well.

*Long post alert* On the 24th of May we landed in Male and our ‘Raffles’ experience started before we even reached the resort. From being picked up at the Male airport to being escorted to the final destination ‘Raffles’ Meradhoo, at each step we were treated like royalty. We checked into the ‘Over Water’ Villa and the view it gave us blew our minds. For the next 96 hours through the day we saw five shades of blue flowing endlessly before us. ‘Mibsaam’ at the restaurant ‘Yuzu’ was our server on days we ate there and ‘Inaan’ at the ‘restaurant ‘Thari’. The two along with ‘Chef Pradeep’ ensured that each dish we ordered was to our liking. And we can never forget the F&B manager ‘Shane’. We informed him of our allergies the day we arrived and that amazing person would come to us every day before each meal to customize the dishes according to our mood and palate. He even went out of the way to ask the chefs to make special dishes for my 8-year-old vegetarian son. You know that you are being taken care of in a special way when the bartenders ask you the way you like your drink on Day 1 and post that you don’t need to tell them what you want cause they have understood your taste to perfection. A big thank you to both ‘Puri’ and ‘Shehan’ at the ‘Longe Bar’. To make each day spectacular we had our Butler ‘Alief’, I can compare him only to the genie from Aladdin, it was as if our every wish was his command. One WhatsApp message and he would appear almost like magic to tend to our needs. And to end it all Varun Bharadwaj- Director Sales & Marketing at Raffles. He was there at the deck to receive us on the day we arrived and post that would meet us twice a day to check that all our needs were being taken care of. The memories my family and I have made will be remembered and cherished for a lifetime.

In totality, our stay in this spectacular resort is Amazing! Truly a one of a kind experience. I’m in awe coming in to our overwater villa, it would definitely give you the experience where you would truly feel that you are in Maldives. We saw sharks and sting rays around our villa, the frontliners and the managers of the resort are always visible and hospitable, they made our stay worthwhile. I strongly recommend this resort. Kudos to our legendary butler Saleem - thank you for taking care of us and for making sure that we would feel at home, will never forget our housereef snorkelling together, the restaurant hostess Angel who has a lovely personality and smiles a lot, the server Areej who is very knowledgeable of all the food options, the security Liton whose very accommodating, the band at the restaurant that gave us a wonderful performance while having our dinner, the restaurant manager Shane and front office manager Imran are extremely welcoming. Thank you Nasru and Rawa for making sure that we are transported from and to the resort smoothly! I’m grateful to everyone we encountered, thank you so much for the best experience!

It was best moment in my life. They are so nice, kind and friendly. Especially our butler ‘yasir’ make us comfortable and feel wonderful. If anyone makes a plan for vacation or honeymoon, just go to Raffles meradoo. In korea, many people planning their honeymoon study maldives resort. I want to say to them. Stop study and just go to Raffles. Butler, all steps are so kind. I had never been treated well like this. Thanks for everyone in Raffles.
