Meeru Jacuzzi Water Villa

Hi

We are planning to stay in Meeru JWV in June.

Which is better ? JWV 300 or JWV 700 ?

What are the difference between 300 & 700 ?

Are the rates the same for both ?

Thanks !

1. Re: Meeru Jacuzzi Water Villa

We travelled as a friends getaway hence our choice at that time could be only applicable for people seeking a similar experience during that time of the year( Dec.). It was my first island and we stayed at a JWV. It has been a while since we last visited. If I remember correctly, to answer your 3 questions:

1) & 2) JWVs in the 300s face the east, you will be allocated to a restaurant closer to your villa, which is also closer to guests who stay at GVs, BVs and JBVs. Those in the 700s face the north, there is another restaurant closer to that end of the resort, ( Meeru is a big island compared to others in Maldives), which is more convenient for guests who stay at that end of the resort to dine there. The resort does not accept children to stay at WVs, hence at that restaurant the guests were mostly adults. Most guests refer it as an 'adult only' restaurant. It locates just next to the 700 WVs, hence it became 'exclusive' to guests who stay at that part of the resort, although its not strictly official, just not children allowed. ( it makes perfect sence as no one from the other part of the resort would like to walk that far to that part of island just to dine, and vise versa, esp given the food are the same. )

Our holiday was a friends getaway, and we would felt awkward to be perceived as 'honeymooners', plus we were morning person, eps the resort doesn't have a JWV facing the sunset side, we much preferred the sunrise side on the east ( JWVs in 300s). We requested a JWV on the east side before our holiday - the 300s so that we can watch the sunrise and not eat at an ' adult only ' restaurant surrounded by 'honeymooners'.

At that time I was more than happy with our choice as our JWV located at a quieter part of the resort - apparently the 'best' snorkeling site at the resort is closer to the 700s, you will see more people at that part of the resort during a nice sunny day. The other reason I chose to stay at the East (300s) side was because the 700s were being refurbished one after another during our stay, we assumed it would be noisier at JWV 700s.

3) No price difference.

Meeru charges the same price no matter which JWV you stay, either 700s which you will be allocated to a 'adult only' restaurant or the '300s', where you will eat with others who stayed at GVs, BVs, JBVs, or WVs.

The main difference is the location and the restaurant you will be allocated to ( whichever is closer to your JWV. ) .

Which is a better choice for your stay, hm, it depends what are you looking for...

Some other 'budget' resorts, for instance Kuredu might have a more complicated program which has been discussed recently. Meeru is quite simple and all guests share the same facilities, except family with children is not advised to dine at the 'adult only' restaurant, at least that's the case when I went.
