Raffles Maldives Meradhoo
True elegance and pure nature – experience two beautiful worlds in one.
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.
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.
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.
Beach Villa with Pool
Footsteps away from the beach, this villa is breathtaking from the moment you enter inside. The interior colour palette takes inspiration from the marine environment and soothes the senses. Made for relaxation with generous outdoor spaces including a private garden and pool, a wide verandah opening directly onto the beach and a choice of daybeds both inside and outside so you can relax completely and absorb the extraordinary atmosphere of this special place. Take just a step outside, and feel the ocean breeze carry your worries away.
Overwater Villa with Pool
Nature provides the backdrop for a stay in our Overwater Villa. The sun sparkling on the calm, clear water of the lagoon, a myriad colours below the surface as the fish dart across the ocean floor beneath you and the brightest stars in the night sky. It is the perfect platform on which to appreciate the wonders of the natural world. Inside your villa, comfort is yours to curate. Open up the entire area to the soft breeze and sounds of the sea, or enclose the living areas for air-conditioned comfort. Relax in your private pool or deep indoor bathtub or take advantage of the ultimate privilege – stepping down from your terrace into the lucid waters of the lagoon and commune with the marine life.
Sunset Overwater Villa with Pool
With unobstructed west-facing views of the Laccadive Sea, breathtaking sunsets followed by a sky full of stars is the nightly experience from the beautiful comfort of your Sunset Overwater Villa. Whether you watch the magical show from your chic four-poster bed or your daybed by the pool. And whether or not you choose to toast the fading day with a cool drink as our chef prepares you a delicious meal to enjoy in your villa, time spent here together is time to be treasured forever.
Deluxe Beach Villa with Pool
The ultra-luxurious Deluxe Beach Villas are defined by their devotion to the luxury of space. The first – the bedroom suite – is a masterclass in composition. Separate sleep and study areas, a walk-in wardrobe, a huge bathroom with an oversized sunken bathtub, glorious rain shower and beautiful vanity are delightfully designed. Then, beyond the pool and facing out onto the beach, the living room offers inspiring space in which to curl up and read, dine privately on a special meal prepared and served by our restaurant team, or simply enjoy the gentle breeze and open ocean view.
Beach Residence with Pool
Two separate buildings, with private garden and pool in between, make the Beach Residence ideal for quality family time. Its different zones harmoniously connect to create an abundance of extraordinary room indoors and out. The master bedroom is perfection. From the king-size four-poster bed to the vast bathroom suite incorporating a huge sunken bathtub, walk-in wardrobe, rain shower and opulent vanity unit. The second bedroom sits directly onto the beach. It is the place to feel the first of the sun’s morning rays and see the first twinkle of starlight. Between the two buildings lie the landscaped outdoor pool and terrace with its own beachfront Sala, and the poolside living and dining area with daybed, sofa set, dining table and casual seating. And, of course, the private stretch of pristine beach leading onto the ocean completes the scene in unmistakable Maldivian style.
Overwater Residence with Pool
The Overwater Residences boast two separate bedrooms, a living room, gorgeous bathroom and a private pool over the shimmering turquoise lagoon. They are incredible homes of deep quality, cleverly designed to afford absolute privacy inside and huge relaxation space outside. While all the villas in our overwater village have astonishing views, the Overwater Residences sit at the very tip of the lagoon. The views from this position are so vast and uplifting that this is truly an unforgettable place to be. Perhaps the grandest of all is the view from the master bedroom. In this sumptuous space, with the high ceiling and enormous windows onto the surrounding ocean you are in nothing but pure, palatial elegance.
Sunset Overwater Residence with Pool
A stay with friends or family in a Sunset Overwater Residence offers you the perfect balance of social spaces and private quarters. The villa comprises two separate bedrooms, a generous internal communal lounge, a grand bathroom, and a large pool and deck area. The west-facing view is far-reaching – the horizon stretching out for miles. And looking down into the flourishing house reef, the view is also mesmerizing. You will feel that you are cohabiting with the abundant marine life living just a few steps down from the pool deck. To be here as the amber sun dips below the line where sky meets sea is a truly magical experience. To be here for any time with the ones you love is life affirming.
Raffles Royal Residence
The Raffles Royal Residence is beyond compare. It offers all the splendor Raffles is known for in this most incredible natural setting. Occupying an unblemished stretch of the resort’s blissful Beach Island, the vast three-bedroom villa expandable up to 6 bedrooms 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 savoring 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.
