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-travelled 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, while 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 on shore, you will know you have arrived somewhere truly special. A place to dive or snorkel and explore our colourful house reefs and fascinating marine life beneath the clear waters. To wonder at the corals and white sands, sharks and tropical fish. A place simply to unwind and allow yourself to reconnect. A place so beautiful and pure, you can rediscover your own rhythm.

Whether savouring a fully catered barbecue, enjoying a boisterous pool party or simply admiring unimpeded views of another staggering sunset, everything the property offers can be enjoyed in absolute exclusivity.

Raffles Maldives Meradhoo’s Marine Butlers can lead guided explorations of the resort’s two spectacular house reefs, while the Royal Residence Butler will be available at any time of day or night to facilitate private boat trips, hearty feet-in-the-sand meals under the shimmer of flickering tiki lights at barbecue restaurant The Firepit, or indulgent treatments at the resort’s overwater spa.

Of course, with so much space entirely and solely at their disposal, guests might simply while away days without leaving the Royal Residence at all. Spa treatments can also be arranged on site; Raffles Maldives Meradhoo’s team of Children’s Butlers can be enlisted to entertain younger visitors; and a multitude of special events, from surprise birthday parties to decadent anniversary dinners, can be happily facilitated. Up to 24 guests can gather for a show-stopping meal to remember in the villa’s kitchen and dining room. Overlooking the lagoon and with its private bar stocked with rare spirits and the finest cigars, the expansive roof terrace works just as well as an intimate eyrie for evening sundowners as it does for morning yoga sessions sound-tracked by gently lapping waves.
