Meeru Island Resort is a beautiful no news, no shoes island surrounded by a beautiful lagoon and long stretches of white, sandy beach. It is the only resort on the large island (for the Maldives!) of Meerufenfushi. Meeru has a wide choice of facilities and is a favourite with the UK market.
Meeru is a great island for first timers worried about a lack of things to do while still wanting that picture perfect island. It is always well reviewed and clients love it. There is plenty of everything here so a fabulous introduction to the Maldives. The house reef is accessible by boat so if snorkeling is one of your biggest priorities all day everyday its not the best for that but still doable. All rooms are lovely, Water Villas are not over water but more over land with stairs down to water when the tide is up. If it is in your price range, definitely consider a Jacuzzi Beach or Jacuzzi Water Villa.
Your speedboat transfer from Male International Airport is a scenic, 55 minutes ride to this Eastern most resort island in the North Male Atoll.
