Meeru Island Resort, surrounded by a beautiful lagoon and long stretches of white, sandy beach, is the only resort on the island of Meerufenfushi. Your speedboat transfer from Male' International Airport is a scenic, 55 minutes ride to this Eastern most resort island in the North Male’ Atoll. Seaplane transfers are also available.

Meerufenfushi (translated as sweet water island) is fondly known by friends as Meeru and is one of the larger Maldevian islands. Meeru offers a relaxing casual atmosphere in which to relax and soak up the sun in informal surroundings..

The island is covered in soft white sand. The floors of the reception and other public areas too are layered with soft sand.

As you approach the island you will be surprised at the lack of any man-made structures visible through the thick vegetation of the shoreline, fringed with tall coconut palms.

Winding walkways lined with palm trees lead you to the reception with its thatched roofing that blends in perfectly with the natural surroundings. This offers you the Maldives, simply at its best. However there is nothing simple about the services that are provided or the facilities available at the resort. All this is provided without pomp and formality.

Meeru has one of the biggest dive schools in the country, and its remote location in Male' Atoll gives it access to many excellent dive sites that are hardly ever visited by any others.

However you do not have to be a diver to enjoy Meeru. There are a variety of other water sports and land sports that you will certainly enjoy.

None of this is important if you wish to take part in the most popular holiday activity here - relaxation. The island is large enough for you to find your own private little hideaway on the beach for the day. Or simply find a perch at the popular poolside and spare yourself the effort.

DINING

No fuss dining, just good food is the order of the day at Meeru. No dressing up to impress. Just stroll in from the beach or from your room, and sit down and enjoy. There are five restaurants and six bars where you will find everything you want, and at all hours of the day. So just continue to have fun and there’ll be plenty of food on offer just when you want it.

Two main “sister” restaurants, serving the same buffet menu, conveniently located to best serve our guests.

The Farivalhu: Even on the hottest day the breeze wafts through this amazing eatery. A tall sloping roof with cooling fans buzzing in the rafters. All meals are buffet, with the menu changing every day. A comprehensive breakfast is available to fuel up divers for the day ahead. Lunch and dinner buffets offer a wide selection of different kinds of food, salads, pastas, meat and fish, as well as a good sweet and fresh fruit selection. Vegetarians and people with special dietary needs can also be catered for, but they should let the resort know beforehand.

The system offered here is flexible, so if you're a late riser and miss out on the buffet breakfast, the Hungaanu Coffee Shop offers an a la carte breakfast menu between 9.30 and 11.30. In fact there´s no need to worry about missing any meals as there is a choice of snacks, pizzas, pastas, and more substantial dishes on offer until late at night, as well as a choice of ice creams and fresh fruit.

As well as the usual bar beverages, there's a list of cocktails to suit most tastes, and there's a daily cocktail special should you want to try something different every day. Poolside service is also available.
