Our stay was just for 3 nights, but the staff ensured we had a wonderful time across. The food prepared was amazing and was customized by the chef as per our requirements. We stayed in a water villa and the room was beautifully set up. We would definitely consider visiting JA Manafaru again.
JA Manafaru is a wonderful resort.. Loved our stay. It was our first stay in the resort and it was memorable. Loved the arrangement done in my room on my anniversary as well as the private dinner :)Special Thanks to Shaiju the incharge of room services, Mangal our host and Santo who arranged our room at all times.

20 years travelling to different resorts in the Maldives and 4 years ago we by chance chose Ja Manafaru. Since then we come back every year. There is no better place to spend an ideal holidays. Great weather, outstanding service, most friendly personnel, excellent facilities, the best sea ever and beaches where you feel totally private.
Specifically to mention the extraordinary service and friendliness of Melanie and Shafeek. Many thanks! We look forward to coming back again and again.
Rooms are amazing: large layout, private pool is nice. Above expectations. SPA is oustanding and food variety and quality is very good, which is not something common in Maldives.
The trip from male to the island is very long. 85min in sea plane is a bit heavy. You reach the north tip of Maldives. That’s the biggest drawback. Once you reach you forget it all.
Staff is outstanding but this is a point of parity with many other resorts in Maldives.

We had the pleasure of staying in one of the Sunset Villas the last week of September 2018 (7 nights). Upon arrival by seaplane, we received a heartwarming welcome by the staff and our experience host Jaleel. ALL of our expectations were exceeded throughout the week! The location was like Paradise, the food was excellent, the cleaning was perfect with fun elements included by the staff, the snorkeling excursion was great, the SPA was very delicate and the staff there extremely friendly.
In general I can not remember ever staying at a resort with staff as friendly and welcoming as this time! They all remembered us by our first names, showed an honest interest in us and our experience at JA Manafaru, and they all seemed to love their jobs! I really wish we could remember more of the names, but a few of the people that really made us feel really welcome, was Jaleel, Nizam, Shaad, Madheeh, Ruwan and Amjad and of course Mr. Vlad Reyes. You all really made us feel seen and treated like royalty!
We took a belated honeymoon to Manafaru. It is in the north of the Maledives and very quiet. Taking the water taxi there was the first amazing experience. We were personally greeted by the GM Vlad Reyes and his team. Our personal experience manager Jessica took care of every wish we had from excursions to things needed in the room. The people made the trip great.
Everyone who works at the resort is dedicated, authentic, friendly and proud to be there. We treasure all the conversations and memories - from yoga in the rain with Raj and Teresa over Noodle soup with Valoo for breakfast to daily lunches in Andiamo with Krishna, Jessa and the team and a full moon dinner with Malediven Lobster prepared by Valoo. The spa was also great with Raj, Yoni and Santi. It’s the personal touch that makes the difference. Thank you to all at Manafaru for making our honeymoon truly special.
Just came back from Manafaru, words cannot describe this place, i have been to maldives several times in different luxury reports but none beats the beauty, the attention to details, the kindness of the staff, the quality of the food and the amazing sea of MANAFARU.
A Special thanks to the GM Vlad, to our experience Hostess Jessica, and to every and each of the staff of MANAFARU, they all went beyond their possibilities to make sure that our stay was unforgettable.
Diving and snorkeling was amazing, the waterfront room overlooking the fine white sand was a dream. I really enjoyed our private lunch at the uninhabited island in front of the resort, our cocktails at the infinity pool, the chef garden where the staff grow their own veggies, every night we had the chance to try a different restaurant with the finest selection of wines.....
Thanks Again! I will be back
