JA Manafaru

Discover JA Manafaru

JA Manafaru is a larger resort-style hotel set on a tiny 35-acre island of flawless white sands, deep emerald foliage and dazzling turquoise waters in the northernmost atoll of Haa Alifu. Following a fairly lengthy domestic flight and speedboat transfer, you'll be able to immerse yourself in this luxurious retreat and enjoy its wealth of activities, suitable for couples and families alike.

A collection of overwater villas provide 'sunrise' or 'sunset' options, while characterful beach villas offer greater privacy; all have a private pool. An extensive selection of water sports, activities and excursions is available for the more active, while for more relaxed pursuits, the Calm Spa Sanctuary has extensive therapies and the main infinity pool has a sublime setting to while away the hours overlooking the sparkling ocean.
