The epitome of lush tropical getaways, the Maldives offers unrivaled paradise. I was able to spend a day at Meeru Island Resort & Spa during my short time exploring the Maldives and got a sample of the island property. If you are ready for an affordable, tropical getaway…
pack your bags for the private oasis of Meeru Island Resort & Spa in the Maldives!
Meeru Island Resort
Surrounded by turquoise waters and colorful marine life, Meeru is a beach lover’s dream come true. The only resort on the island of Meerufenfushi, the Meeru Island Resort & Spa has a lot to offer those who want to experience the Maldives without breaking the bank.
Sunset cruises, top-notch diving in the surrounding atoll, and white-sand beaches made for a great stay and some much-needed relaxation.
The staff’s warm, friendly Maldivian hospitality made the stay even better.
The Rooms at Meeru
The Meeru Island Resort & Spa has a large collection of rooms. You can choose from Garden rooms, Beach Villas, Jacuzzi Beach Villas, Water Villas, or Jacuzzi Water Villas. I stayed in the Jacuzzi Water Villa, which sat over the water in the iconic bungalow style, and loved waking up to the views.
My villa had a private, walled-in outdoor area with a Jacuzzi, chaise lounges and a private sundeck and shaded area. To top it all off, I had an amazing partially open-air bathroom with a rain shower and little features like my own espresso machine.
Duniye Spa on Meeru
After splashing around for hours in the sea, I went over to recharge at the Duniye Spa. This serene, exotic spa combines cutting edge technology with ancient oriental traditions to create the ultimate spa experience.
The staff members are pros at all of our spa favorites and offer dozens of blissed-out exotic treatments you’ve got to try.
The spa provides holistic spa treatments with a high-touch and low-tech approach. Check out its signature treatments like the Sense of Touch package with ginger and lemongrass herbal poultices and African potato body balm or the Heaven on Earth body and face ritual.
Food at Meeru
The food at Meeru consists of all-you-can-eat buffets with the tasty food selections from all corners of the globe- not to mention fresh tropical fruit.
Friday nights are a special treat when the restaurants are transformed into Maldivian style and the staff dresses in traditional garb. Specializing in Asian cuisine and Teppanyaki, the over-the-water Asian Wok Restaurant is a must-try.
I am still drooling just thinking about the sushi at the Asian Wok.
Activities at Meeru
Meeru offers various water and land activities for its guests. Obviously, number one and two on the list are snorkeling and diving in the surrounding waters.
One of the best amenities, in my opinion, is that they offer a complimentary boat excursion to the house reef for snorkeling excursions. There is also a snorkeling trail located at the northern tip of the island where you can see beautiful tropical fish along the way.
Other water sports include windsurfing, catamaran, kayaking and glass-bottom boat explorations.
