Honeymoon 2021

Review by Filipaamartins

Just came back from the most amazing holiday. JÁ Manafaru is just magical. From the moment we arrived, we were welcomed with most warming hospitality...

The whole JA Manafaru team were just brilliant. They are so so friendly and helpful it was quite sad leaving them when it was time to say good bye.

I have to say the Food was out of this world. Every restaurant and every meal was just delicious. I have to give a big shout out to Chef Moosa and Miguel and their respective team.

Other special mentions have to go to Rafu, who was always there if we needed anything. Thank you so much for everything you did for us.

I would also like to mention Aiman, Nizam and Imran for their amazing service and just being so kind and friendly. In fact I have to give credit to ALL the JA Manafaru team.

The island offers so much and I can’t wait to go back there. Already planning my next trip :-)

Can’t wait to see you again, Filipa

Paradise on earth ,The Maldives @JA Manafaru

Review by josephmhaka Harare, Zimbabwe

My partner treated me to a birthday holiday at what was paradise on earth .The JA Manafaru resort is an island out of this world . The quality of service rendered is non like we’ve seen before,it was impeccable, from the Food ,Jaya treated us to a traditional romantic dinner at a private island, from the starters to the deserts as we dined under the stars ,the food was beyond delicious. Ocean grill at the resort was our best dining restaurant.

Morning breakfast served by Beyya ,who also took us memorable pictures ,was a good way to start our morning ,whilst recommending activities.

Drinks at the infinity pool and white orchid served by Imran and putu, gave us a beautiful sunset experience...

This was our first trip together ,and this resort gave us the best of everything . Water activities are a must , enjoyed the Jetski and diving in our water villa .

Thank you to all the staff and managers , our guest guide Rizam was the best of the best ,and Navaz from housekeeping for making our stay a memorable one .

We will definitely come back here . 😍😍😍🥺

Ja Manafaru

Review by Aplieppo London, United Kingdom

This was our first time in the Maldives. We visited Ja Manafaru just before Covid hit globally (February 2020). We spent there 10 days...

Food and service were impeccable.

I am afraid I was sick for part of the holiday but the island’s doctor gave me everything to recover (antibiotics and all) and Melania (the executive assistant manager) always checked that I had what I needed and even before I got ill she always made sure that her guests were happy.

There were my husband and 2 children (7 and 8 years old) and they all loved the island.

My kids’ favourite experience was definitely the sunset fishing trip, that we highly suggest.

It was my birthday and we had a breathtaking private dinner on the beach. It was just surreal. If you are in doubt whether to have it or not, go for it. It’s well worth it.

All around the island there was a chilled atmosphere, perfect for a relaxing holiday.

We were a bit disappointed to not being able to see the sea turtles during our snorkelling trip, but that is far from the hotel responsibility, just be aware that this can happen.

The kids club has beautiful facilities but the activities were less exciting than others clubs we visited in other resorts (not Maldives).

My husband was hoping to be able to use the hobie cat (which is his favourite thing to do when on holidays) but there seemed always to be ‘problems’ and he was never able to use it.

Would I go back to Jamanafaru? Definitely yes! The minor downside were well overshadowed by all the positives.
