Raffles makes first foray into the Maldives

Raffles fans can now enjoy the hotel’s legendary butler service in the Maldives with the opening of its first property, Raffles Meradoo Maldives, this February. Located in the Gaafu Alifu atoll, the 38-villa resort will have a marine butler to introduce guests to the local sea life.

As you’d expect, there are knockout views of the Indian Ocean from this secluded collection of overwater villas and residences, which lie adjacent to vibrant house reefs reached by a traditional Maldivian dhoni boat. Guests can dine all-day at Thari, sample Peruvian and Japanese fusion at Yuzu, and enjoy flame-grilled chef specialty dishes under the stars at The Firepit. Tapas, sashimi and cocktails inspired by the national drinks of South America and Japancan be experienced at the overwater Yapa Sunset Bar… or why not work your way through the champagnes and wines at the legendary Long Bar?
