Raffles Maldives Meradhoo Resort

Raffles Maldives Meradhoo Resort

Raffles Maldives Meradhoo is a rare haven. In its remote location on the southern tip of the Maldives archipelago, it is as far away from the rhythm of everyday life as can be. Here, guests find their own rhythm. In harmony with nature, they relax, reconnect and realign. Surrounded by crystalline Indian Ocean waters home to unspoiled house reefs and their incredible inhabitants, it is easy to forget the world outside. The place is tranquil, beautiful, and pure. The service is discreet, intuitive, and gracious. Life is true Raffles luxury. This is elegance at its most natural.

At the southern end of the Maldives, in the crystal waters of the Indian Ocean, lies a rare oasis: Raffles Maldives Meradhoo. This uniquely idyllic resort brings the legendary service of Raffles, host to the well-traveled since 1887, to Gaafu Alifu, one of the world’s largest and most remote natural atolls. The result is a resort-like no other. On this tranquil haven, unparalleled Raffles luxury whispers like a breeze across lush greenery and white sands, creating a space in which to realign and feel in harmony with your surroundings.

Across the two islands, thirty-eight magnificent beachfront and overwater villas and residences offer an abundance of space. Luxurious therapies in the overwater spa relax and rejuvenate. Simultaneously, in the three restaurants and two bars, the freshest local and international dishes are served against a backdrop of stunning natural scenery.

And, of course, the inimitable Raffles butler service will elevate your stay into an unforgettable experience. From the moment you step onshore, you will know you have arrived somewhere truly special. A place to dive or snorkel and explore the colorful house reefs and fascinating marine life beneath the clear waters. To wonder at the corals and white sands, sharks, and tropical fish. A place to unwind and allow yourself to reconnect. A place so beautiful and pure, you can rediscover your own rhythm.

Restaurants & Bars 

The Thari - From pastries and fresh fruits at breakfast to vibrant salads and a la carté dishes at lunch and themed dinner nights, guests can relax in this informal, open space in the cooling drift of the gentle ocean breeze. "The Firepit" - In the flickering light of the charcoal fire, while sipping a chilled cocktail or a glass of wine from the exceptional sommelier selection, watch the chefs use one of the oldest forms of cooking to create a stunning, flavorsome feast. Romantic, natural, and relaxed, The Firepit is unique. From here, sunset watching and stargazing are more than magical. "Yuzu, Nikkei Cuisine" - In a distinctly romantic setting over the lagoon, the chefs blend traditional Peruvian dishes with influences from Spain, Italy, China, and Japan to capture the diversity of this unique culinary legacy.

"Long Bar" - With a list of vintages to match those reserved in the British Royal cellars, the Long Bar is dedicated to the most luxurious of moments. With its chic design and beachfront position, time spent here is the ultimate in elegant indulgence. Yapa Sunset Bar - Sitting over water adjacent to Yuzu, this charming environment is to sample authentic Japanese Sake or a luscious cocktail using Picso, Mezcal, or Tequila. The world-leading mixologists are there to guide you through the various flavors before preparing your drink with or without accompanying sushi, sliders, or oysters.
