Raffles Maldives Meradhoo

Gaafu Alifu Atoll, Maldives



A palm tree-peppered private island comprising of only 21 villas and residences, a sublime spa, beachside restaurants, and a world-class dive center with an on-site marine biologist, Raffles Maldives Meradhoo is a haven for beach lovers.



Gaafu Alifu is one of the world’s most remote and pristine atolls, found at the southernmost reach of The Maldives. Its far-flung Indian Ocean position and exquisite natural beauty make it the ultimate escape. You will take an hour’s domestic flight from the Maldivian capital Malé to Kaadedhdhoo. From there, Raffles' team whisk you away to Meradhoo island in their speedboat where your Butler awaits your arrival.


Raffles Maldives Meradhoo’s Overwater Island Experience completes the resort's island. With its vast overwater villas and residences, sophisticated Nikkei restaurant Yuzu, and sunset-facing Yapa pool bar, it will provide unparalleled luxury to those who dream of a life spent on the water. Together these two private islands offer two distinct experiences, bound together by Raffles’ legendary service. On both islands, the luxurious two-bedroom residences provide an exclusive retreat for families and friends, while the Raffles Royal Residence offers the perfect setting for a very special celebration. You will reside in some of the largest villas in the Maldives – each featuring a large marble bathtub, private pool, and outdoor shower. Surrounded by lush foliage, the beach villas offer a sunrise or sunset view while the overwater villas overlook the dazzlingly turquoise water.


On the beach island, the overwater Raffles Spa combines Eastern practices with age-old local influences. A unique offering, a Marine Butler is available to every guest and will happily lead snorkeling tours of the resort’s two remarkable and endlessly fascinating house reefs. Enjoy your meals at the Firepit, an outdoor barbecue restaurant. Breakfast is a highlight at the all-day international restaurant Thari. Paying homage to its namesake at Raffles Singapore, guests can enjoy the signature Maldives Sling at the Long Bar. At the pool bar, Yapa, world-class mixologists create signature cocktails inspired by the spirits from South America and Japan. At adjacent fine-dining restaurant Yuzu, Peruvian chef Anibal Torres serves authentic Nikkei cuisine. Bespoke dining experiences include a sunrise breakfast on a private sandbank or relish in an exclusive Champagne and sashimi by the cruise deck with the company of playful dolphins.
