JA Resorts & Hotels has been awarded four global travel industry accolades that celebrate the unique setting, personalised service and luxurious accommodation available at two of the brand’s most secluded and beautiful island destinations.

The recent World Travel Awards ceremony saw JA Manafaru Maldives awarded three of the most sought-after titles, when it was officially named the ‘Indian Ocean’s Leading Honeymoon Resort 2019’, ‘Indian Ocean’s Leading Hotel Suite 2019’ and ‘Maldives’ Leading Hotel Suite 2019’. JA Enchanted Island Resort in the Seychelles was also named ‘Seychelles’ Leading Resort 2019’, marking a hugely successful evening for JA Resorts & Hotels, the UAE-based hotel brand.

Situated on the northern tip of Haa Alif atoll, a picturesque 75-minute seaplane ride from Malé, the luxurious JA Manafaru beckons adventurous groups to its island paradise and chilled summer scene. Travel tribes from the GCC can snorkel through Manafaru Island’s stunning shallow reef and the gram-worthy azure blue ocean whilst spotting an array of exotic sea life including Triggerfish, Angelfish, Unicornfish, Eagle Ray, Moorish Idol, Butterflyfish, Clownfish, Stingrays and Blacktip Sharks. Super adventurers can even try night snorkelling and experience a whole new world of wonder.

Food lovers can try deep-sea fishing in a secluded tropical island setting on a traditional Maldivian boat, before indulging the taste buds and dining on your day’s catch in Ocean Grill, which features palm trees and idyllic blue-sky views. For a day of relaxation and laidback vibes, explorers can set sail on a castaway adventure to an uninhibited picture-perfect island. Known as one of the most serene islands in the Maldives, Medhafushi is just a short 10-minute trip away and offers a deserted island setting for picnics and dinners that will create unforgettable memories.

Featuring a stunning selection of beach bungalows and water villas, the tropical paradise has everything adventure aficionados desire, including bicycles to explore the island, scuba diving, water sports, tennis, beach volleyball, plus seven world-class restaurants.

JA Manafaru has announced a partnership with world-renowned Beijing Chef Dong Zhenxiang, popularly known as Da Dong. An exclusive Da Dong ‘pop-up’ experience will be served throughout 2019 at the resort’s award-winning signature restaurant White Orchid.
