A Warm Raffles Welcome
Raffles Maldives is set to impress GCC arrivals with its iconic prestige and devoted service. Part of the charm of the enchanting islands is just how remote they are, giving guests the freedom to reach the islands in any way that suits their preference. For an extremely exclusive experience, guests can charter their very own private jet. Alternatively, visitors can fly into the Maldivian capital of Malé, followed by a domestic flight to Kaadedhdoo, where they will be met by the Raffles team, who will whisk them away to Meradhoo island by speedboat. Prior to arrival, guests will be met and greeted by their very own dedicated, discreet and personal Butler, readily on hand to ensure that they have everything they need from the moment they arrive. Beloved guests’ warm welcome is then enriched by the sound of welcome drums and a refreshing coconut drink, marking the start of the incomparable Raffles experience.
Elevated Island Living
The private island is as discreet as it is luxurious. Home to 38 villas divided in two separate experiences, with 22 Beach villas in the main island, including the ultra exclusive Royal Residence, and 16 Overwater villas on the Ocean Pearl island. Raffles 1,700 square metre Royal Residence provides a luxurious setting of a generous hideaway, between three to six-bedrooms, with a jaw-dropping infinity pool, and roof on its upper level for admiring the night sky.

One of the most private properties to be found in Maldives, an invigorating and peaceful stay is truly on offer at Raffles Maldives Meradhoo.
Extraordinary Marine Adventures
With its position in the remote northern Gaafu Alifu atoll, Raffles Maldives surrounding waters and house reefs are home to some of the richest marine life located above the equator. Far from the mainland and near the equator gives Raffles Maldives Meradhoo guests an extraordinary clear display of the natural marine life. Experience the world’s greatest treasure when it comes to harmony and solitude and venture out into the shimmering deep blue and witness the richest marine life just waiting to be discovered beneath the island.

A unique offering, the Raffles Marine Butler is a dedicated expert and guide offering guests VIP treatment, as well as unmatched knowledge of the beautiful surroundings.

Set off by boat, or for a truly thrilling start to the day, zip away there by jet ski and watch the sun rise, surrounded solely by the presence of gently lapping waters.
