Meeru Resort & Spa 2014. Presstrip to Maldives. Contributed by Jens Hoffmann.
A perfect stay on one of my favourite “Robinson Crusoe” atolls on the Maldives.
A speedboat takes you from Malé International Airport to the Meeru resort & spa in 55min, the lovely
resort is based on of the larger Maldivian islands. It is 1,5 km long on the edge of the atoll with a lagoon, fine beaches and even a 9-hole pitch and putt golf course.
The Meeru has plenty to see and do, activities include golf, tennis, badminton, a nice gym and of course a great dive centre, with a school and outings to dozens of dive and snorkeling sites. We enjoyed a great sunset dolphin-watching cruise with many lovely companions.
The Meeru is one of the largest resorts in the country, it is split into three distinct zones, each based around a reception, bar, lounge and restaurant or café, two of them with a beautiful pool.
It offers a friendly warm atmosphere and pleasant staff which looks all the time after you.
The 286 rooms include water and beach villas, garden rooms and honeymoon suites, attractively
decorated in tropical style, with pale wood walls, bright cushions and wood floors.
I was more than happy with my bed and a fantastic view.
Some villas have partially outdoor bathrooms, some have a private hot tub, and the more expensive categories are on the best beaches. All rooms have internet access and private terrace.
Of all the improvements over the years on Meeru, one of the biggest and most obvious is the cuisine. The buffet at breakfast, lunch and dinner of well-presented regional asian-influenced, international dishes, served in two restaurants. Really although the most things are imported in a extraordinarily good quality.
My favourite dinner place was the Hot Rock restaurant and the option to grill your lobster, fish and meat in your own style. Perfect delishious arrangement by my self with chili, ingwer and lemon and a lovely white wine. Yummy.
