Turquoise waters mingling with azure skies. Emerald palms glistening over sun-kissed beaches. The soul-calming roar and crash of the surf – JA Resorts & Hotels beckons you to experience the magic of the Indian Ocean with stunning properties in the Maldives and Seychelles.
JA Manafaru – Maldives
The Maldives can cast a spell on its visitors, making them return to the shimmering atolls, season after season. But JA Manafaru, Maldives — a luxury resort on a 35-acre private island — is a place you never want to leave. A direct seaplane from Male Airport will get you here within 75 minutes. You could choose from seven different accommodation options, as each one has a private pool. We recommend, the Sunset Villa or Sunrise Villa – over-water villas with private decks, inﬁnity pools, i-Spa bathtubs and glass panels in the ﬂooring that let you peek at the marine life.
The resort also has six world-class dining options that cater to discerning palates. But if you’re looking for a tipple, head to The Cellar — an underground wine cave. During your stay, plunge into the depths of the sapphire sea with experienced 5-star PADI and SSI-certiﬁed teams or participate in water sports like windsurﬁng, kayaking, jet-skiing and wakeboarding. But if you’d rather stay on land, lounge by the swimming pools or indulge in relaxing treatments at Calm Spa & Salon. The aromatherapy massages by Elemis are an absolute must.
Enchanted Island Resort by JA, Seychelles
This otherworldly archipelago of 115 islands, is something out of a dream. But if you’re looking to fulﬁl a Castaway fantasy, stay at the Enchanted Island Resort – a secluded hideaway, just 15 minutes away from the main island. The word “exclusive” doesn’t even begin to describe it. With only 10 Creole-style colonial villas, each one featuring private beach access and an inﬁnity pool, amongst several other luxuries such as a private sundeck and a French bathtub overlooking the endless ocean, as well as a personal butler at your beck and call!
Better still, if you’re a group of 24 people, you can call this private island resort your own. Book it for your next big family vacation. The island resort also has a gym, a restaurant and bar, a Yoga Pavilion, a library and the Serena Spa. But if you’re looking for privacy, an in-villa barbeque experience can also be arranged. The resort also organizes excursions for those who wish to explore neighbouring islands.
