Paradise on the water
My wife and I went to JA Manafaru on our honeymoon. It was paradise on earth!
We flew in from Dubai to Male. Once we arrived there was a representative of JA Manafaru waiting for us to guide us to a special lounge where we waited for our seaplane. They had drinks and food available, and the wait was around 1hr but no issue. They weren't able to take all our luggage in one go (2 of the 4 didn't make it), but that was fine since there are multiple plans arriving and really very delay when we finally got to the resort.
After a 75min seaplane ride arrived in Manafaru. Amazing views flying in, and then the staff was waiting at the dock when we got off the plane. Nice welcome refreshing drink with refreshing towels. Introduced to our "experience host" who was there to help us and attend to any requests or questions we had and take us to dinners and drop us off. Thanks Jaleel for all your great help, you were fantastic!!
Resort is awesome!! Restaurants are great (we liked White Orchid and Ocean Grill - amazing lobster!!). We had the all-inclusive package which I would recommend since otherwise the menu prices were quite steep. Beaches and water are unparalled, so beautiful with blue crystal clear warm water and white sand. Service was great in all the restaurants, very attentive and kind.
Activities are plentiful, we did the CastAway Island and Private Beach dinner, which were both great. You do have to pay for these activities but well worth it!
All in all, amazing place!!!
