JA Manafaru

An enchanted island, on the northern tip of the stunning Haa Alif Atoll in the Maldives, is home to JA Manafaru, and comprises 35 acres of pure beauty. Surrounded by lagoons and coral reefs, it provides a tranquil, serene and mesmerisingly romantic destination, the quintessence of total relaxation. From the moment you first glimpse the gorgeous palms with the ocean lapping on the shore, you will be in no doubt that the 90-minute journey by sea-plane from Malé was totally worthwhile.

The idyllic island has a verdant interior, full of spectacular wildlife, and a series of paths wend their way through it, linking hotel facilities with accommodation. The distinctive Maldivian architecture, with thatched roofs, timber columns and fragrant wood panelling, blends in with the natural surroundings. There are notices scattered around, explaining the local flora and fauna, and replicas of traditional wooden homes demonstrate how the Maldivians lived before the tourists came.

The culinary experiences are as enticing and exotic as the rest of the resort, the most distinctive being the Wine Cellar Dinner just once a week. The romantic candle-lit Cellar is located 10 feet below sea level, and just 10 guests round a single table can sample a range of the world's finest wines, while enjoying truly delicious French-inspired chef's Specials. Romantic dinners can also be enjoyed at the candle-lit beach-side Ocean Grill, or on the over-water platforms of the White Orchid, while Kakuni Village provides traditional Maldivian cuisine.

The hotel amenities make full use of the island setting, and include the vast, dreamy spa, entered through massive oriental-style gates, and navigated via winding stone footpaths bordered by artificial streams. The winding paths symbolise the labyrinth or journey of self-discovery, and there is a wide choice of self-rejuvenation programmes, all of which stay true to aromatherapy principles. Of the resort's three pools, the Andiamo Pool, tiled in black ceramics with strategically-placed spotlights, was recently voted as one of the top five pools of the world. The PADI five-star diving centre offers a unique opportunity to discover the magnificently rich marine life surrounding the island, and not to be missed are the sunset dolphin cruises, which provide a special and enthralling spectacle.
