I've got a reply from Meeru stating that I could not upgrade from a LV to a JLV or WV as I have 2 children with me. This is because JLV & WV guests eat in Meeru Village and no under 18's are allowed.


Email received as follows: -

Kindly be advised that Meeru Village accepts guests of 18 years and above
only.

Meeru Village consists of Jacuzzi Villa, Water Villa, Jacuzzi Water Villa
and Honeymoon suites.

Best regards,
Afoor


Yet, I've noticed that Ashley managed to book a JLV for 2 adults and 1 child last year travelling on 7th March for 2 weeks.

Ashley, if you are reading this, can you tell me if you had any problems? Or did you manage to book a JLV and eat in the main resort.

The new village and restaurant only opened early this year, so as far as I am aware, there was no under 18 rule at that time.

Hi

I'm just wondering with the conversions of the land villas taking place, are there going to be enough for everyone that booked them?
I'm like you Shatish and am going out with my 2 Boys on Christmas Day and would love to upgrade given the chance.

Regards Julie

you will get the villa you booked & it will mean that someone along the line will get upgraded to next accomadation to accomadate everyone......the 18 age ban on the village has been going since it was advertised....but i have read on a trip report (i think it was) that some one argued and got the child into the malaan restaurant ...sorry cant be more specific...it might mean some reading and using the search facility

Depends how well behaved they are imo. I have just come back from my honeymoon at Meeru and I would have been a bit annoyed to see rowdy kids in the Maalan restaurant. (not saying that yours are Julie, being 12 & 15 presumably they are better behaved than young children Very Happy )

Yes my boys are young men now, so there's no running around tables, shouting etc. and i can understand if you're on a romantic island, honeymoon etc. the last thing you want to encounter are sprogs Rolling Eyes . When i go on my girls only holidays, children are given a very wide birth. (just smugness on our part cos the men are looking after them at home. heh heh Twisted Evil )

My children are young (Dillan is six & Alisha is eight) .... but they are well behaved. Of course I would not want to offend or upset others and will make sure that they cause as little disturbance to other couples on the island as possible. I've been on holidays where I've seen parents let their kids wreak havoc, which is something I would NEVER allow my kids to do. We have respect for other people on holiday.

We're going because it's our anniversary and it's also my 40th. I'm well into my diving and Meeru is somewhere I've always wanted to visit. Would have loved to have come without the kids, but if we did that, they would run away from home in protest.

I would have loved to have stayed in a JLV but eat in the main restaurant (so the kids can have company with other families).

Maybe we can get a JLV closed to the swimming pool. Oh well, fingers crossed.

Hopefully we will be able to do the sunset cruise (so the kids can see the dolphins) and may be the night fishing.

If there are any other families going at the end of March, please let us know.

Hi Shatish Lad,

It's very difficult isn't it? You are made to feel you're being penalized.

I'm sure you'll have a fantastic time , as we will. Happy 40th

Julie

Ps Your Children have beautiful names

thanks Julie.

I suppose that's why the village was created (for adults only). It will be great when the 5* facilities are made right across the island, but that's a few years away.

Meeru whorshippers with families can only sit and wait.

Hi all

I love children.. grew up in a large family and my own children have grown up flown the nest and I am now onto my grandchildren

but I have got to be honest the main reason why we chose Meeru Island was because it had an adult end re : the accomodation and the Maalan resteraunt..... we where looking for a more adult focussed, relaxing, chill out holiday with times without children and we bought into Meeru because it was the only island that catered for everyone. singles, couples and families all on the same small island........so I think it would be a shame for Meeru to relax the rules that have set this island apart from all of the rest.

I do though agree that it will be much better when all of the accomodation and island is brought upto the higher standard as we all should be getting 4* - 5* which will be brilliant for everyone

Hi Julie

everyone will be grateful for him........good players are allways looked upto......

How old is Alex to be so tall? My stepson Ashley who can't be with us this time is 15yrs old and 6ft 8" tall........into rugby though like his dad..

Don't get me wrong I love children and will be going upto the pool area and the family Bars to socialise and make friends.........but I am also looking forwards to having the adult only time out option as well.

Well done to Meeru for catering for everyones needs.
