What a great resort! What a fantastic experience! Never thought I’d enjoy a trip this much The resort is in the most secluded area in maldives, worth the trip because you will get a chance to see dolphins, sea turtles and if you are really lucky orcas The resort is facing a few uninhabitabt islands which makes you intertwined with nature

Heaven on earth is an understatement. Ja manafaru in the Maldives was paradise. We came here for our honeymoon and were blown away. As vegetarians on an all inclusive holiday, we were abit sceptical about food choices, however we were surprised everynight with 5* service and food. We went zorbing, private cinema on beach, snorkeling, had dinner on the beach, floating breakfast and a photoshoot. The service we received was impeccable. We stayed on an over water villa which was breathtaking, it included our own private pool. The main pool was a short walk away or even a bike ride which was a beautiful infinity pool overlooking the Indian Ocean. All staff were overly accomodating, however Sateesh in particular ( bar man at the pool) was fantastic and made sure we had drinks at all the time and anything we needed. Highly recommend and our best friends have even booked this for honeymoon because of our feedback and pictures.

Dear guests, we are so very grateful for choosing us for your honeymoon out of so many amazing properties throughout the world. It sounds like you also did quite and lot of activities and delighted that there seems to have been more than enough activities to keep you entertained. I am also pleased there was enough vegetarian cuisine to enjoy, this is always something we like to expand on and Executive Chef Nazza and his team always try to cater for various expectations and tastes, especially in the more health conscious life choices we make today. You are wonderful to mention Sateesh and i am sure he will look after your friends also on their honeymoon. Looking forward to welcoming you also back to the island for an anniversary! with gratitude on behalf of the JA Manafaru family. Karen
