As an expat living in Male' it's always nice to get out to some resorts occasionally and choose Meeru resort whilst a parent of mine was visiting. Having been to a few resorts around Male', we were both very impressed with an amitedly short stay. The food, buffet selections in the main restaurant was very impressive and extensive whilst the cocktails, around seven or eight US dollars each, we're refreshingly strong to keep diluting down through an afternoon of relaxing at Meeru's beach bar or pool. But having booked for two days for their standard beach villa, we were moved up to their jacuzzi water villa complete with our own stair case into the reef due to our visiting in the off season. While it may not be top range, we couldnt hve asked for more from the accomadation, including the top range branded espresso machine, for the money we paid, we were really impressed for value for money and walking though the resort, either along it's beaches or past its own astroturf pitch for staff and guests, was extremely pleasant. Very impressed.
