Leave all your cares behind and relax in the lap of luxury at the stunning JA Manafaru resort in the Maldives. The moment your feet touch the soft, white sands on the magnificent Manafaru Island you will be enchanted by the tropical scenery and sweeping views across the Indian Ocean. Perfect for a romantic escape, family holiday of a lifetime, or dream wedding, guests can enjoy a laid-back stay in the comfort of one of the resort’s bungalows, suites or villas, all featuring a private pool among the many other luxuries. While most travellers will choose to spend their days on the beach, drifting away on the sand or swimming in the shallows of the pristine lagoon, the resort also offers a number of activities to suit visitors of all ages. Any thrill-seekers can take the plunge on a snorkelling or scuba diving adventure, or enjoy a host of other water sports. Back on dry land, the resort offers a range of sports and activities for adults to take part in, with younger travellers able to join in the fun at the children’s or teenagers’ clubs. Those feeling less active can revive their body and mind at the resort’s spa, while anyone looking to top up their energy levels can enjoy a delicious meal at one of the resort’s exquisite restaurants. Add to this the superb all-inclusive package served up on Manafaru Island and guests will find everything they need for an unforgettable holiday in the heart of paradise.
