This place is magical, from the moment the boat arrives. My husband and I went with friends and we both had beach villas, there is nothing to beat waking up to the beautiful view of beach and sea. The staff are so friendly and helpful, if your in the Dhoni bar, Shahuz is brilliant and our waiter Gasim remembers what you like, just brilliant, the only thing we all agreed on was that the evening entertainment, sometimes wasn't great, could do with the disco 3 nights a week rather than the one and the band playing in the Kakuni bar on Wednesday night are not upto the standard expected of the resort, karaoke had better singers, the food was amazing, so much choice, the cocktails perfect, there were some ants in our bathroom but they didn't cause a problem, will definitely like to go back, snorkeling inside the reef watching the fish is amazing we never became bored of it. Would recommend the Asian Wok for a special night out, fabulous holiday

We were a group of 3 friends and we had an absolutely amazing time during our stay. This place is quite different from the usual beach side resorts and it actually gives you a feeling of how it is to stay on an island. The different varieties of restaurants, cafes and bar and their unique design and look made our stay even better. Most of the staff were quite helpful except for a couple of them , especially the waiter who was allotted to us for the length of our stay (Ali @ Maalan) as he did not seem to be much interested in taking care of his guests and wasn't much of a help. On the other hand, we were served by Waheed at Dhoni bar who was excellent and knew how to take care of his guests. Latheef was also quite helpful and gave us a lot of good info about Meeru island. Lots of things and activities to do around the island, the Dhoni bar is just as beautiful in the evenings as it is during the day. I'd recommend this place to anyone planning to visit Maldives, not all resorts in Maldives provide an all inclusive package, all inclusive is really good as it'll save you from paying higher prices for food drinks and snacks if ordered separately. We had the sunset cruise included in our all inclusive package , though we were under the impression that it would automatically be included but turned out that we had to actually book our places, when we tried to book it appeared to be fully booked - we had to then speak to the reception a couple of times to get us included in the list. Similarly, we received a few vouchers for 15mins of free spa but could not avail of this as it was fully booked.. and they couldn't accommodate us. Overall, the stay was really relaxing and very different from any other sea view / beach resorts I've been to. Can't wait to get back to Meeru again someday.. For those yet to book their stay in Maldives, don't hesitate if Meeru is one of the resorts you have shortlisted! It will be worth it.

This Island is just beautiful, it gave us the most perfect honeymoon! We did not want to leave!

Stayed in a 600's Jacuzzi Water Villa and it was just amazing. The villa was huge and the wildlife you could see in the transparant sea from the decking was fantastic.

The jacuzzi was a great touch and loved the open air bathroom.

You really are in a tropical paradise here, the sea, sand and the sunsets are to die for!

The Food was great! My only gripe is the house cocktails which were in the all inclusive. They were not very good and so I paid for the better ones which was a bit of a pain. The Entertainment could also be improved a little but to be honest, the sunsets and the wildlife do their own entertaining!

Staff were fantastic, very friendly and informative. I cannot recommend this place enough! We were so sad to leave and will definitely re-visit. Thank you Meeru for making our honeymoon the best it could have possibly been!!

We just came back from an 8 night stay on Meeru. Thanks to all staff, we had an amazing time there. The beaches, water, spa, food, all was perfect. The island is beautiful and we could have gone snorkeling everyday.
Staff was very attentive. Could have a few more ramps, as my partner is in a wheelchair, but due to fitness, we got around ok. The move to the water villa was right though.
Very clean, natural and easy.

We arrived on the 26th of May from a 10 and a half hour flight from England. The boat trip took an hour to the Island where we were then greeted with a mocktail and a cold towel. We were then offered an exclusive 1 night cruise on our second day absolutely free!! We travelled on the cruise to an uninhabited island where we went snorkelling and saw some amazing sea life such as manta ray and tropical colourful fish. We were spoilt the whole day with lunch on the way there, afternoon tea with toasted sandwiches and cake and then later a Maldivian version of a BBQ on the beach. They lit up the whole beach and serves a banquets of delicious food for us. We made friends with 4 other couples during our trip. We went hand rail fishing and much enjoyed the company and the service of the Maldivian waiters, chef, fishermen and captain. Not to mention our guide Aneef! He was so funny and helpful. There was a minor problem with the boat the day after but problem solved when a speed boat came out to pick us up and take us back to Meeru.

We were back at the island by 12:30pm where Karina told us we had been upgraded from a beach villa to a jacuzzi water villa!! We were given a ride to our villa and our bags followed. We walked into our new villa and we were delightfully surprised. A huge comfy bed, patio doors onto our balcony with steps leading down to the blue water. A huge bathroom with outside shower, jacuzzi and sunbeds. Large wardrobe space and of course a mini bar where we were allowed the wine and soft drinks and beer as we were AIP.

We ate our dinner at the main buffet restaurant Farivalhu. The food was amazing!!!! Chinese, Japanese, Italian, English .... Little shot starters, soup, rice l, pasta, steak, chicken, lamb, pork and the list goes on. Our waiter was lovely Naheed. He specifically remembered our routine drinks during the meal... Simply diet coke as we had to drink lots of fluids as it gets very hot! He recommended different dishes and spoke to us about his family and how he loves working at Meeru.
The deserts were just fabulous... Chocolate fudge, creme brûlée, mouse and our favourite, chocolate ice cream with biscuit nuts.
Breakfast was just as good as they served full English, cereals, cheeses, meats, toast, breads, fruit, yoghurt and my favourite which I'll miss was the fresh fruit juices!

We enjoyed Maldivian afternoon tea by the pool each day and also treated our selves to a pizza and a few portions of cheesy chips (extra charge but worth it!)

We also had vouchers for a free massage. We both had 15 minutes of relaxation which we really enjoyed so we booked to go for another. We booked the half hour neck back shoulder and legs, which was just enough. We enjoyed the ginger and lemongrass tea afterwards.

We went kayaking another day which was just incredible. We kayaked around the whole island which took us 45 minutes. The ocean is beautiful and we just dipped our feet in off the kayak to cool down from the hot sun.

We also enjoyed some time at the driving range with other couples we met. It was a laugh as non if us had a clue of what to do!

My husband enjoyed Sunday football where the guests play against the staff. The staff were brilliant and obviously take advantage of the perks that Meeru have to offer... So good for them!

We spent a few night playing pool in the games room at Kukoni bar and enjoyed the entertainment.

We enjoyed going for a drink at the Dhoni bar as it all lights up and the staff are lovely and attentive.

We went on the sunset cruise which is highly recommended!! We saw so many dolphins and flying fish. Amazing!

We spent our last night in the Asian Wok where we enjoyed delicious food and drinks (costs extra).
I had Tandori chicken and my husband has teriyaki chicken and we shares naan bread and popadoms. It was a lovely experience and a great end to our holiday.
On our last day we were able to enjoy a couple more games of pool and then had lunch before we left for the airport. We collected our clothes that we had made by the Maldivian man in the shop... We are really pleased with them!

Overall not only was it an amazing honeymoon but it was a holiday of a lifetime. We enjoyed every second and are planning on going back! We loved the ocean, the food, the pools, the entertainment and the staff! Thankyou Meeru for such an amazing experience we will definitely be back soon :D
