Perfect place for honeymoon or family gathering, the water villa has outstanding view which you can stay in your room all day to enjoy the sunshine, for restaurant I would suggest white orchid , it's a pitty that we didn't got a chance to eat in the cellar , maybe next time! 房间景色一级棒 推荐出海潜水 这个地方离马累最远水质非常好!推荐白兰花餐厅铁板烧的sushi 还有周二周五的唱k,歌手jilie超级nice!

Loved our time at JA Manafaru - next time would opt for all inclusive - drinks v. expensive. The quality of service, the rooms - just about everything faultless. Above all the people there - kind, friendly and welcoming. I'm a picky eater but the food was scrumptious and plentiful. Cannot recommend this hotel strongly enough.

Our family had a wonderful vacation we liked going swimming and looking at the stars. Our family favorite food was the Manafaru Seafood pizza. We liked the dinner place Ocean Grill. We also liked fish

I’m going to apologise in advance for the length of this review, but unfortunately there is no real way to concise down the detail of how amazing this holiday was. Our JA Manafaru experience began once we had landed at Male. My fiancée & I were a little taken aback by the rather huge rainstorm taking place. This was, however,... More

Lovely upgrade of our room. Chatted to quite a few staff (we even went to watch them play Football!!). Amazing food, housekeeping staff,... More

Excellent staff, beautiful resort, great food options, will recommend highly! Our villa host Imran was exceptional, and everyone was serviced to aid in all your needs and very responsive. The over the water villas were breathtaking and tranquil. We went in rainy season but only had a few days of scattered rain and the resort was less busy which likely... More

So, where to start... My wife and I visited in June of this year 2016 after I spent some time researching potential all inclusive options for a first trip to the Maldives. This and the fact that it was to be our honeymoon trip and we had just spent our wedding week in the very beautiful Chianti hillside of Tuscany.... More
