We came to Raffles for our honeymoon and had the most amazing experience. It was beyond all of my expectations. The resort is so beautiful and the ocean water is unlike anything I’ve ever seen before. We went snorkeling and scuba diving and were transported into a whole other world and it was truly breathtaking. We stayed in villa 27, one of the over water bungalows and the service was unmatched. Every single person that works there is warm and friendly and knew our names from the moment we arrived. Our buttler Yasru was wonderful. He helped us with everything we needed from dinner reservations to our room service orders and he was always available for us with a smile on his face. He anticipated all of our needs and truly made our honeymoon special. He went over and above to make sure we had a perfect experience. Hamdhan and Naheeb were our “room boys” and always made sure our room was fresh and clean when we returned from our daily activities. They were wonderful and fast and kept our beautiful room in perfect condition. Azuhaan Mohamed the boat buttler was also a delight. He was so friendly and made sure our boat rides were fun and interesting with little facts about the local islands and always making sure we were comfortable during transport. I truly can’t say enough about this resort it blew me out of the water. It was one of the best vacations I have ever had and the fact that it was my honeymoon made it even better. I can’t wait to come back and see this place and all the wonderful people we met again.

Astounding, Bewildering, Stupefying Experience

I'm at a loss! I really don't know where to start. My wife and I went to the Raffles Meradhoo in Maldives for our Honeymoon. A lot of people kept telling us that 5 nights at a resort in the maldives would be too much - you guys are going to get bored - all i can say is that the people who gave us this suggestion, have no clue what they were talking about. This was undoubtedly the best vacation of my life. The entire experience from our arrival at Male to the transfer, the stay, the entertainment, the food, the sports, the view, the personalised attention was mind boggling. Very rarely in life have I found myself at a loss for words. More importantly, I always felt that my command over the English language was above average. My experience at the raffles has unfortunately led me to be stark reality that a) I need to learn more adjectives to express a feeling of bliss and b) The bar has been set so high that it will be very difficult vacation to match up. :( Let's talk about it: The FOOD - Oh My God!! Shane and his team treated us to a culinary extravaganza worthy of the kings - I’m sure the great Julius Cesar himself would have been impressed - To give you an idea I travelled across the culinary world in a matter of 5 days : From Srilankan to Japanese From Maldivian to American I tried all options available - and was treated to one mouth watering orgasm after another. Just to try my luck I even ordered butter chicken (the Delhiite in me had to come out) - and there it was - and not just any butter chicken they managed to recreate the authentic Amritsari version. The Hospitality: Our Butler Atef who also happened to be a Certified Diver himself was absolutely awesome - he arranged everything- from breakfast in the pool to my first snorkeling experience. I requested and he and the staff made it happen. The Bar: We spent every evening at the Long Bar and were sipping on some amazing cocktails conjured up Thilan, Shashika, Andrea and Lulu - one in particular that i had was exceptional - its was a Gin cocktail infused with curry leaves - it was out of this world. Do make sure you go there to enjoy the Sunset - words cannot describe it - you have to be there sipping on a cocktail or in the infinity pool right next to it to know what im talking about. The Activities: Although i couldn't enjoy everything that was on offer (Believe it or not they have a Marine Biologist with whom you can set up a session to understand more of the aquatic life around the atoll) I did manage to Snorkel (in the afternoon and at night - the night snorkeling experience was crazy - it is a must do for all water enthusiasts). We also went for a jetskiing - that too was amazing - controlling such a powerful machine on the water was quiet a challenge - but one we thoroughly enjoyed. Thanks to Appa and his team for all of this. A special shout out the the housekeeping team - who went out of their way to make our stay so memorable - on our last night at the resort while we were enjoying a scrumptious dinner at the FirePit the housekeeping department prepared the the villa so beautifully - i hopefully can find some photos to share the amazing job they did. I can go on and on - but i think i have made my point abundantly clear. this place is everything i have managed to pen down and a whole lot more. In the words of Antoine Ego from ratatouille- the experience at the Raffles “ROCKED ME TO MY CORE” and I will surely be back “HUNGRY FOR MORE” A very very special thanks to the amazing staff at the Raffles Meradhoo who left no stone unturned to make this the most memorable vacation of our lives ( I speak for my wife and me :)) In no order of priority (I apologise if i've got the names or designations wong - i'm pretty sure ive messed up a few) Thilan (F & B) Puri (F& B) Liana ( Spa) Appa (water Sports) Shashika ( F& B) Shimad (exec house keeper) Shane ( F & B) Imran ( Head F&B) Varun ( Commercial Director) Yoges ( Resort Manager) These are the names i can remember - and for those i have forgotten - a sincere apology.

Me and my partner had the best experience staying at the Raffles Maldives. Time flew by and we were sad to leave but blown away with the immaculate service and attentiveness from all the staff especially our butler Nattu. Nattu went above and beyond to make our stay as comfortable as possible. He took us snorkelling and showed us some amazing underwater life. The overwater villa was truly magnificent. Huge, comfortable and beautifully designed we felt just at home, our villa attendant Hamadan made sure our villa was always clean and fresh. On our last last night we had were surprised by our butler Nattu who created a special night for us before our departure. Truly unforgettable I loved every detail that was put into it. The food was delicious everything was attended to in regards to my allergies so I am very thankful to the team who made it a priority to take care of that. Overall a beautiful island, great service and a place I will definitely advise anyone and everyone to visit. Totally worth it and we will be back again soon.

Sam and Katy C TripAdvisor review

Where do I start? The food: top notch! There is something for everyone but my general advice, go for the local food! Butler service: incredible- Yasru, absolute legend- we will cherish our early morning snorkels forever! Yasru nailed everything, personalized our entire experience and was a really knowledgeable, nice guy! He made our experience perfection! Housekeeping: The room was always kept to the very highest standard- Shaafe and Iham were amazing. Marine biologist: We met with the marine biologist and even went for two snorkels with Amandine, she has a real passion for her job, was so knowledgeable and a great teacher. The overall experience: nothing was too much trouble, all of the staff were friendly, helpful and great people… some of them were utterly hilarious and the marine life was just WOW! We will definitely be back within the next two years with our children!
