Make the Most of Your Summer with Meeru Island

Dear Friends of Meeru,


Summer holiday greetings from Meeru Island Resort & Spa!


The brilliant weather carries on and it’s time for you to continue to get plenty of that ‘Vitamin Sea’, only available on Meeru. There is still time to make the most of your summer and book your vacation with us. Please check our website and we will gladly assist you with arranging your dream holiday. We would be pleased to welcome you all.


Our Dhoni Bar seems to be the major attraction these days. No wonder, since the place has been transformed to our World Cup Bar, still underway until July 16, 2018. Large crowds of guests gather for every live match and enjoy the football broadcast right in front of the powdery, white sandy beach. Games are won and lost – but after all, new friendships are formed whilst enjoying tropical cocktails, chilled beers and sumptuous snacks in a relaxed environment.


Over the next couple of weeks we will keep you informed of some of the actions carried out by our Meeru Green Club. As you all are aware, reduction of plastic items and generally increased protection to our environment is vital for the sustainable future of the Maldives. Meeru has engaged in a couple of campaigns involving our team members, and as well, involving our guests. All the guests I have spoken to are very willing to contribute their fair share in order to maintain and improve the nature of our tropical little Island paradise. You all will receive regular updates and your suggestions are most welcome.


Thank you so much to all of you for keeping the various social media channels ‘buzzing’. Our Instagram followers are increasing by the day. Follow our Facebook Page to get the latest updates on Meeru. Thank you for all your valuable feedback and comments on TripAdvisor, HolidayCheck and various other channels. Your trip reports feature so much information and form a great platform for future guests wanting to visit Meeru.


Whenever you have that desire to view a glimpse of Meeru in real time, be it because you want to refresh your memory of a past holiday or wanting to see how a future holiday will look like, then just visit our homepage and click on our two Live Cams, one viewing over the Kakuni and Dhoni Bar beach, and the other one providing a view from the Uthuru Bar towards the south-western part of the Island, catching the part where the sun sets in the lagoon.


Have a great time ahead, whether it is on Meeru or at home. I thank you for your continuous support. Think of us from time to time and enjoy life at its best.


Thank you to all our guests and I hope to see you soon.


Kind regards from the entire Meeru Team.
