Meeru Island Resort: Let’s Have Fun on One of the Biggest Maldivian Islands!

This island is unlike any other in the Maldives. It features not just tranquil water villas and beachfront restaurants, but also a football field, tennis courts, badminton courts, beach volleyball and a golf course.

Enjoying Meeru hotel

One of the largest Maldivian resorts, the Meeru Island on North Male atoll can be reached in just 55 minutes by speedboat from the airport. It offers 286 rooms including water and beach villas. Did you know that the first water villas in the Maldives were constructed on this island?

We especially loved the sand floor bars by the beach. At night they are filled with the sounds of live music, but still keep a real “no news, no shoes” atmosphere.

Exploring Meeru Hotel beach

Overall, there is no “lost paradise island” feeling here because it’s quite crowded and the beaches are so picturesque that you just can’t stop taking pictures.

Meeru hotel - paradise for kids

The island is great for kids, as it has a huge number of water and inland activities but, for those who prefer a quieter time, there are specific adults-only facilities including one of the main restaurants, a bar, and one of the two infinity pools.

Room details

The island features a large variety of gastronomic options – from the Asian Wok restaurant, where you sit on colourful cushions on the edge of the deck and watch the reef sharks playing below, to The Hot Rock restaurant with seafood and exotic meat cooked at your table on volcanic hot rocks. The all-you-can-eat buffet at breakfast, lunch and dinner in the main restaurant is delicious and features local and international dishes, with something different every day.

Perfect place to relax

As the island is big, it also features two spas – one traditional over-water spa and one by the golf course. We opted for the over-water option and didn’t regret it.

Meeru is a paradise for divers and has an onsite PADI diving centre. The local reef is nothing special but there are amazing diving and snorkelling options reachable by boat.

For a 4-star resort, prices are quite friendly (starting from 200 euro per villa per night), but the quality is superb, evidence of which is almost full occupation despite the huge number of rooms.

I fell in love with traveling much earlier than I fell in love with my first man. And I'm still faithful to that love (But I have exchanged some men since my first one). I have never had a reason to regret my passion. I constantly dream of going further, it gives me indescribable emotions and meaning to my life.
