WHY WE LOVE THIS HOTEL

Industry-leading Service: From the general staff to the expertly-trained Raffles butlers, the high-level of intuitive service provided for guests here is truly excellent. Butlers are prepared to help with guests’ needs ranging from standard room service to facilitating activities like snorkeling and kayaking.

Island Aesthetics: Accommodations at Raffles Maldives Meradhoo are uniquely beautiful in their architecture and spacious, open-air layouts. Subtle touches like aquamarine-inspired color palettes, indoor-outdoor daybeds, and private swimming pool areas make a stay here as close as one can get to a private island living experience.

Oceanside Dining at its Finest: In-house dining options – such as the barbecue-focused Firepit, the welcoming Thari, and the indulgent, overwater delight of Yuzu – offer a variety of cuisines for guests. Two additional bars feature expert bartenders, locally renowned for their artisan cocktails.

DETAILED DECRIPTION

The many coral-formed atolls and islands of the Maldives are a marine adventurer’s paradise with a burgeoning tourism industry. This luxurious vacation destination is home to turquoise lagoons, alabaster sand beaches, and some of the world’s most majestic sunrises and sunsets, and it remains a perfect place to unplug from the hectic rhythms of everyday life. Located on the far southern tip of the archipelago, Raffles Maldives Meradhoo is a haven of five-star luxury set on Gaafu Alifu, a remote, pristine atoll known locally for its natural beauty and prosperity thanks to thriving agriculture, fishing, and textile weaving industries. Villas and residences at the Raffles Maldives are laid out with an eye toward maintaining a balance with the natural environment of the Indian Ocean, with the element of water serving as a central inspiration. Oversized, sunken bathtubs are set against intricate blue-patterned tilework, private garden and pool spaces lie adjacent to beachfront salas and open-air living and dining areas, and spacious outdoor deck areas are mere footsteps away from the white sand for which this archipelago is known. And in keeping with the Raffles brand’s ethos of discreet, gracious service, private butlers stand at the ready to help make any guest’s travel experience as smooth as possible. Raffles Maldives Meradhoo – with additional facilities like an overwater spa and fitness center, array of restaurants and bars, and accommodations to suit virtually any party – offers travelers the height of personalized luxury in the southern Maldives.
