Raffles Maldives Meradhoo - Two private islands

Two private islands

Raffles Maldives Meradhoo provides guests with unparalleled luxury from the moment they step onto the main island to the sound of welcome drums and an ice-cold glass of fine champagne. Each Villa, Residence, restaurant and bar has been designed impeccably. They are flawless spaces that elevate island living to pure luxury.

Main Island
Our private island is home to 22 villas, including Raffles Residences, Beach Villas and Deluxe Beach Villas. It is also the home of the nurturing, overwater Raffles Spa, the main pool and a soft white sand beach on which are found restaurants Thari and The Firepit, and our island interpretation of the legendary Long Bar.

Overwater Island
There are 16 villas on the Overwater Island. Some facing east to greet the rising sun and others facing west to capture the magnificence of the Maldivian sunset. The Nikkei-inspired restaurant Yuzu, and adjacent bar Yapa are also found here – giving guests breathtaking views to enjoy with delectable food and drink as the amber sun dips below the endless Maldivian horizon.

Raffles Royal Residence
Located on the main island and served round the clock by Raffles Butlers, Raffles Royal Residence, is an unmatched escape with its very own private beach, gardens and infinity pool.

Raffles Royal Residence. The Indian Ocean’s new exclusive island hideaway
Occupying an unblemished stretch of the resort’s blissful Beach Island, the vast six-bedroom villa is perfect for groups of friends gathering for a once-in-a-lifetime celebration, as well as families who want to kick back and take things easy. Stretching comfortably over 1,700 square metres and accommodating up to 15 guests, the Royal Residence’s heart is the three consecutive reception rooms that border its 40-metre pool and look towards the property’s private beach. 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. Guests inspired by those flourishes will have ample tailored opportunities to explore the many wonders of the world surrounding them. 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.
A responsible resort
Raffles Meradhoo Maldives protects and preserves its incredible environment and supports its local communities. We do this by creating smart food production systems, nurturing our marine ecosystem, improving the quality of life for the local population, and upholding a zero-single-use plastic policy throughout the resort. So that means we fundraise to support local schools, clean our reefs, fish sustainably and grow produce in our kitchen garden. We have also installed an in-house water bottling plant and employed Reverse Osmosis technology to produce fresh, filtered drinking water from seawater, served in refillable glass bottles. Our Marine Biologist educates all staff on how to preserve and protect our marine life, and formally trains our Marine Butlers to guide snorkelling in our housereef and share vital knowledge with our guests. Our villas and walkways are equipped with LED lights to save energy, and we only use bamboo and paper straws. Finally, to reduce paper waste, we use iPads to share information and manage data. We do everything we can do and will always look to do more. A sustainable future for the Maldives is an enduring priority for us.
