Latest info for any future travel.... Crown & Champa Resorts Travel Flexibility and Cancellation Policy
http://blog.crownandchamparesorts.com/covid19-outbreak-maldives-update/

Also latest health update from official government sources does mention Meeru.

Still hoping to get back to Maafushivaru in June. Just a case of monitoring each day and fingers crossed.

Thank you CJ

So sad all of this and unfortunately I have to read updates on FB it's really sad that no one uses this site I've used it for years it is always really reliable with information where as FB it hit and miss and an awful site to negotiate round!!!

We are due to fly out 6.4.20 for Easter with a once in a life time trip with daughter, SIL and grand children flying business glass!! and again for our annual pilgrimage in June - what will be will be but wish people would use this fantastic site

Maldives have now restricted any passengers from the UK from midnight 19th March 2020

Also

Just a further update from my above post regarding Meeru and latest info as of 16/03/20 @ 21.00.....

12 samples collected from Meeru Island Resort have all tested NEGATIVE. As per protocol, temporary monitoring measures enacted on the islands have now been uplifted.

Sadly FCO has now advised against all non essential travel worldwide from the UK for the next 30 days at least.

At least in the short term it takes away the stress of should you travel or not.

CJ - Many thanks for the update, itís great that I can look on here as I donít use Facebook.

Nellie333 - such a shame your Easter trip has been cancelled, Hope you get there June.

We have 5 different holidays booked over the next three months and are expecting them all to be cancelled but looking on the bright side we may instead put the refunds to 1 more holiday to Meeru Very Happy Very Happy later in the year.

Hope all the staff on the island keep well

Thanks SUEC it will be re-booked and no monies will be lost so it's not the end of the world maintaining our health is the most important and there's always someone worse off.

Iíve purposely joined the site recently as Iím not on Facebook, felt I should do my bit..

My wife, Lucy has been active on here for a number of years.

We have just got back from Meeru on the 9th March and feel truly lucky that we got our holiday before the lockdown (we booked 11 months previously). It felt very quiet with occupancy around 70% before Kureduís guests started rerouting to us.

Iím now working from home so hope to post my first trip report in the next week when I work out how to post photos!

Take care everyone
