My husband and I have just spent a week at JA Manafaru for our 20yr wedding anniversary. I spent hours and hours researching where to go and settled on JA Manafaru even though it was the furthest from Mali. We could not have been more delighted at our stay. It started with our pick up from our hotel, the guest lounge at the seaplane terminal, our arrival with our host and the Manager of the resort .. everything was outstanding! The villa was beautiful and so special facing the sunset and having our own plunge pool. It was great being the only resort on the island and far away from other islands .. I noticed in the seaplane that there were sometimes 2 resorts on the one island which seemed crowded. Nothing was too much trouble for our host, Narshaud, who delivered ice, drove us to dinner, arranged our restaurant bookings, excursions, all with just a phone call. It made the experience feel very personal. The food was great, beaches and water divine ... I will definitely recommend this resort to others.

If you need good customer service and a clean and well equipped room, JA is the place for your holiday. This is my second visit and hope to travel soon with my family for a vacation and i am sure the kids will love it. Rolling around the island in the bicycles was the highlight of the trip.

Incrivel! Perfeito! Perfect!

Não há palavras para descrever esse hotel!! Que lugar maravilhoso!! O lugar (Maldivas) por si só já é maravilhoso, mas o hotel precisar ser um lugar que você se sinta bem e confortável. O JA Manafau é o lugar. Distante do aeroporto e com toda privacidade, a ilha tem todas as opções possiveis. Os quartos são muito bem cuidados e limpos (ficamos no bangalo sobre as aguas sunset), a equipe sempre muito educada e atenciosa e a comida do todos os restaturanres extaordinária. Fizemos o pacote all inclusive e valeu muito a pena!

There are no words to describe this hotel !! What a wonderful place!! The place (Maldives) by itself is already wonderful, but the hotel needs to be a place that you feel good and comfortable. JA Manafau is the place. Away from the airport and with all privacy, the island has every possible option. The rooms are very well maintained and clean (we stayed in the bangalow over the waters sunset), the staff were always very polite and helpful and the food from all the restaturants was extraordinary. We made the all inclusive package and it was well worth it!

Great stay at JA

Stayed at JA Manafaru with my family of 4; Mum, Dad and 2 kids aged 10 years between Nov 30 and December 8, 2018.We visited the JA resort recently and had a fantastic break. As with most Maldivian islands the resort is contained on one island. We stayed in a beach villa (301 and 308). Preferred 301 as there was direct access to the beach. The accommodation was large and comfortable and well maintained and had everything you would need. The lounge converted comfortably for the kids to sleep in. I particularly enjoyed the all inclusive mini bar (!!), the blue tooth speaker and the day bed outside at night time to stare at the stars.The island is immaculately kept by the gardeners and is easy to get around (no shoes) and fat bikes are provided which was helpful. We made full use of the snorkeling from the jetty (fantastic) , sailing and the SUP boards. The kids made full use of the kids club with Adams, Nick and Aileen and my knees are still sore from the competitive games of volleyball at the end of the day.Service is excellent and each villa is assigned an experience host. Ours was Daria who arranged whatever needed arranging each morning for kids club, dinner, spa, water-sports etc. She even arranged to transfer rooms so we had sandy beach right outside. Generally service in each restaurant was fantastic, friendly and genuinely warm. The food at breakfast was fairly standard fare although the kids certainly enjoyed the churros with chocolate! the food for lunch and dinner was always first class. Plenty of options for both lunch and dinner but usually gravitated to Andiamo at lunch. Wine choice and drinks were excellent also.The spa was great but nothing out of the ordinary. The snorkeling excursion was fantastic and Adams was a brilliant and informative guide.Overall a great place to stay and a holiday we will never forget. When researching I noted concerns on the length of the transfer but I would say its a bonus to have tour of the Northern Maldives! Would highly recommend.
