After 12 hour flight from Munich we landed at Male International Airport which is located on the island near the capital Male. Maldives consists of 1.192 islands of which about 200 are inhabited. To enjoy the tropical paradise we chose Meeru Island Resort & Spa which is located on the North Male Atoll and it is the only resort on the island. High-speed boat takes you from the airport to the island; the ride takes about an hour. Arriving to the island reveals the beauty and magic of the Maldives. In the resort they immediately offer you welcome drink and refreshment.
Maldives is the synonym for a tropical paradise with white sandy beaches, palm trees, crystal clear water and rich marine life. Meeru Island Resort more than justifies this reputation. Meeru Island Resort offers several types of accommodation, from garden rooms, beach villas, water villas, jacuzzi beach villas, jacuzzi water villas to honeymoon suites. The majority of accommodation is located close to the sea or above the sea which gives a luxurious impression. Since this is the only resort on the island it is recommended that you take full board; the food is delicious and very tasty. The island offers several restaurants and bars; you can also choose romantic dinner on the beach under the stars. Resort staff is very friendly and helpful. The villas are clean and well maintained as well as the island surroundings. The island has a museum, souvenir shop, spa and fitness. Morning walk along the white sandy beach is excellent start of the day followed by a delicious breakfast and swimming in the sea.
The island is surrounded with a beautiful white sandy beach and crystal clear sea. On Meeru Island we spent 12 days and I can say that we more than enjoyed in the beauty that the island offers. You can enjoy on the beach or you can choose various activities among which the most interesting are snorkeling, diving, water sports, or you can choose different excursions.
During our stay in Meeru Island Resort we also visited the capital city of Male to which you can go by speed-boat, about 1 hour ride. Male does not give such a fairy tale image as the island itself but it is an interesting city and the capital of the Maldives. When we have arrived to Male numerous local guides offered to show us around the city. Despite the explanation that we want to explore the city by ourselves at the end we ended up with one of the guides who showed us around; from government buildings, mosque and local market to the famous fish market. At the end, of course, obligatory visit of souvenir shop with local products of Maldives.
Meeru Island Resort is the right choice for those who want to enjoy in tropical beauty of white sandy beaches and crystal clear water far from urban centers in perfect paradise.
