World Turtle Day, In Photos

Today is World Turtle Day! A day when turtles are #shellebrated, get it? May 23 is observed the world over to create awareness of and share knowledge about the protection of turtles. The sea turtles that abound in Meeru Island Resort & Spa waters are part of a species that has lived for more than 150 years! The way you travel to Meeru to seek sun, sea and sand, sea turtles often travel for thousands of miles, crossing oceans as they feed, before returning home. The common species spotted around here is the Olive Ridley Sea Turtle. Here are our favourite photos of sea turtles taken by you.

Planning your first trip to the Maldives

Looking for the perfect honeymoon escape or seeking out some winter sun? The Maldives is the ideal destination and with good reason. Tourists, throughout the years, have made this tropical paradise with mesmerising blue waters and the liveliest marine life their go-to holiday destination. If you are thinking of visiting Meeru Island Resort & Spa, we have picked out a few considerations for you.



The perfect vacation doesn’t magically happen. It takes a little planning. When planning your ideal getaway to the Maldives, before making your booking, think about the holiday and what you would like to do. Having done research, you probably have an idea what course you would want your vacation to take, be that sitting pool-side in your sarong, reading a novel and casting some glances at the setting sun or diving deep into the warm turquoise waters and exploring the kingdoms under the sea. Having a general idea (you don’t have to plan the entire holiday out) will help you know how many days you should set aside for your trip. To get the most of the island and the numerous experiences available on offer, set aside as many days as you can. At Meeru, guests staying for more than four days get a welcome massage at our famous Duniye Spa.


Book Early

The early bird does catch the worm. On the special offers tab of our website, we regularly update new offers, discounts and packages. Taking advantage of these offers is a sure way to save some money and brings you a step closer to the perfect holiday. We would also highly recommend taking a look at the All-Inclusive packages as they not only give you the best value for money but also come with a host of benefits. Booking your trip well in advance enables you to leave off enough time for planning. Remember, a fantastic vacation is a well-planned one.



Pack an Adventurous Spirit

Along with the floral, light summer clothes and sunscreen, bring with you an adventurous spirit. The island is a feast for the senses. There is much to see, much to eat and much to do. Our carefully crafted excursions afford you the opportunity to go scuba diving or snorkelling, charter a Dhoni for a fishing trip,  sail off into the sunset with the Sunset Trip on a Yatch, visit a local island and interact with the locals as you shop, and so much more. Our buffet and a la carte restaurants serve up a mix of regional and international cuisine that will whet and satisfy your appetite. Lastly, with ample entertainment and sports facilities and frequently organised events, there is no room for boredom in paradise. All you need to do is come and try.



We cannot wait to welcome you to Meeru.
