Situated on a secluded and private island in the north part of Maldives, JA Manafaru offers big beach bungalows, suites and over-water villas with private outdoor pools. The island is a bit away from Male, it takes around 60 minutes by flying to reach the local airport, and then 10 minutes by boat to arrive to the paradise. JA Maldives is located in an unspoiled area, and that is why the promote themselves as the Real Maldives. And Maldives Arena have checked that the the slogan is very accurate.

The island is very green and beautiful, and the ratio of rooms per land space is very low, making it very relaxed. Even if it is at its 100% occupancy, the feeling is still of a tranquil paradise island.

JA Manafaru is close to beautiful snorkeling sites. Also it is possible to do an excursion to an uninhabited island where you can stay on your own, with only a phone to call the crew to pick you up. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, picnics… can be organized in this Robinson Crusoe Island.
