Never are humans more jealous of fish than when they first set foot Meradhoo Island in the Maldives. Below the crystalline waves, nature has been building an abstract collection of art for thousands of years. These coral reefs vibrate with life and color, drawing visitors down to take a look.
Above the reef on your sandy atoll, Jumeirah Dhevanafushi sports 22 Island villas, each with its own private beach and pool. Over the water, you’ll find another 16 Ocean Villas with steps directly down to the deep, and outdoor marble baths looking out the horizon.
Days at Jumeirah Dhevanafushi are filled with diving, snorkeling, volleyball, boating, fishing, and yoga, performed at the Talise Spa, where a plethora of refreshing and healing treatments wait.
Eat at a variety of island haunts, including Azaza, an all-day international dining spot famed for its flakey breakfast pastries. Or, choose Mumayaz for fresh seafood prepared with a local and Mediterranean flare. Of course, Johara is always an option, with its fine cuts of meat and even finer sommelier.
