JA Manafaru

‘Tropical Havens – All-Inclusive, Exclusive Hideaway’

JA Manafaru is situated on a 35-acre private island within the Maldives. It's an all villa resort comprised of beach and overwater villas including two-bedroom and three-bedroom options, each of which has a private pool and terrace. There are two resort pools, a spa, a fitness centre and a water sports centre. Jam-packed schedules at the kids and teens clubs promise to keep the children engaged. JA Manafaru also features ‘Magey Hiyaa’, a Maldivian Cultural Awareness Centre which enables guests to experience Maldivian Life. The resort has ten drink and dining experiences serving cuisines from the Mediterranean all the way to the Far East. The overwater White Orchid Restaurant offers the tastes of Asia with a contemporary take on signature dishes. 

In Our Opinion

“Reserve dinner at The Cellar, a venue 2.5m below sea level set in a volcanic stone cave. Here you can experience the ultimate ‘Wine Cellar Dinner' - fine wines paired with the chef’s haute cuisine.” 

White Orchid Restaurant

A perfect space for Dine on the overwater terrace above the lapping shoreline with breathtaking views that measure up to the bold flavours of the Asian cuisine.

Ocean Grill

Local seafood and steaks prepared on live grills on the beach front. Open for dinner. 


Delicious global dining while looking out across the ocean. A great place to catch-up or reset throughout the day. Open all day.

The Cellar

The Maldives' first and deepest subterranean wine cave. This is perfect for 'Dining by Design' and there's no better place for paired wine dining. Reservations only.

Andiamo Bistro and Pool

Mediterranean inspired restaurant overlooking the pool. Open for lunch and afternoon dining.
