The package offers guests the chance to discover some of the world’s rarest, largest and most beautiful coral reefs under the guidance of Jumeirah’s Dhevanafushi’s marine biologist. The heart-shaped Meradhoo island is located on the Gaafu Alifu Atoll, 400 km from the capital Malé and is one of the most remote islands in the Maldives.
Guests will begin the morning with a talk about ecology and reef preservation, then discover the reef for themselves. Competent swimmers can snorkel along the 850m stretch to the water bungalows. The package also offers the opportunity to help with cleaning the house reef. The resort’s PADI certified Meradhoo dive centre can accommodate those looking to go scuba diving.
The resort comprises 37 suites, including 21 villas on land and 16 over water that are only accessible by boat. The over-water villas are equipped with a small ladder from the decking which leads directly into the ocean. All accommodation options offer a private pool and personal butler.
