Raffles Maldives Meradhoo has welcomed back guests to an enhanced world of refined hospitality with its reopening of gates on July 16, 2021. The resort offers an unrivalled service experience, a spectrum of culinary escapades and a promise of emotional wellbeing, holistic indulgence.  

The resort becomes the ultimate beacon of memorable and remarkable experiences on the Indian Ocean and most exclusive island hideaway in the Maldives with its introduction of “The Raffles Royal Residence”, further complemented by a newly designed “Kids Butler Program”. 

Raffles Royal Residence 

Located on the main island and served round the clock by Raffles Butlers, Raffles Royal Residence, is an unmatched escape with its very own private beach, gardens and infinity pool. 

Occupying an unblemished stretch of the resort’s blissful Beach Island, the vast six-bedroom villa 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. Guests inspired by those flourishes will have ample tailored opportunities to explore the many wonders of the world surrounding them.  

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.  

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.
