Meeru (Maldives) Visit Number 3

This is the 3rd visit to Meeru and our 10th in the Maldives.

Trip Report below:

Booked with Travelbag in the UK
Flights with Emirates

So, what can I add to all of these reviews (and my previous reviews) that hasn’t been said already?

Meeru continues to hold its high standards in all respects and here is my again unbiased opinion.

Resort Transfer:

Easy and quick, simply locate the Meeru desk, wait a short while and then you will be guided to the speedboat. Around an hour to transfer, take in the sites on the way.

Reception:

Met by a member of staff with our name on a small sign and guided to express check in where most of our details (some of which required amendment) where already filled in. We travelled with friends who were first time Maldives visitors but they were treated with the same special service as us.
Had to speak to reception a few times about a few minor issues, these will dealt with efficiently.
I must make a point of saying that Marlene was particularly professional and really impressed us with her customer service skills!

Accomodation:

Again, I emailed the reservations team about two weeks before arrival to request a particular set of room numbers. We were allocated perfectly within the area we had requested. After the free cruise (more about that shortly) we were allocated 122 which is right on the end of the Jacuzzi Beach Villa run, quite set apart on its own and the best room location we have ever had.
The HiFi system is very dated now and probably requires replacement. TV was just fine for the short time I actually watched it.
Jacuzzi maybe needs a deep clean soon as well.

Island Surrounds:

All kept clean and swept daily. A small amount of flotsam was found in the grass in front of the JBV’s and smokers should be ashamed of themselves! Use the ashtrays provided and not the beach! Both pools again were kept perfect.

Spa:

We used the spa and had the Full Moon treatment. Well worth the money!

Cruise:

We decided to take the offer of the 3 day cruise aboard the Hagern. The Hagern is a large yacht with 12 cabins. We enjoyed a peaceful time taking in a few snorkelling points and a stop off on Kagi Island. It was nice to see the small uninhabited island once again but please Meeru, invest some more into it, it’s looking a bit rough. We also felt that we didn’t spend much time on Kagi before being ushered back to the yacht. All in all, take the opportunity to do the cruise on either the Kamana or Hagern, its certainly worth doing something a little different on your holiday.

Staff:

The staff were fantastic in all respects! They just seem to get better and better each time we visit. A special mention to Mirfan (our fantastic waiter) who once again provided an unparalleled service! They are very well looked after by the resort and it’s easy to see why some staff have been at Meeru for many years, lookout for their badges displaying their time on Meeru.

Food:

The best selection ever Meeru! You will not fail to find something you will like. The standard and selection during mealtimes has got to be the best we have ever experienced.

Summary:

Its easy to see why so many guests choose to repeat here as you know time and time again that Meeru will tick all the boxes. Im not going to use the cliche of “we never go the same place twice” because if you like what you like then why not repeat?

Meeru again? Yeah, why not?

Room Tip: Rooms on the western size seem to have more breeze
