Mӧvenpick signs Maldives resort agreement
Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts has signed an agreement to manage its first resort in the Maldives.
Mӧvenpick Resort & Spa Kuredhivaru Maldives. The planned 105-unit resort, Mӧvenpick Resort & Spa Kuredhivaru Maldives, will be situated on the remote Kuredhivaru Island in Noonu Atoll.
It is scheduled to open during the second quarter of 2018.
The contemporary tropical resort will have 33 Beach Villas and 72 Over Water Villas. While designed as a destination for relaxing and offering a high degree of privacy, the resort will also feature onsite recreational facilities for honeymooners to adventurous families.
“It’s no secret that the Maldives is a much sought after holiday destination that is still increasing in popularity and our spectacular resort represents a significant entry for Mövenpick into this world-renowned island hideaway,” said chief development officer and senior vice president Asia, Andrew Langdon. “We look forward to introduce our guests of Mӧvenpick Resort & Spa Kuredhivaru Maldives to Mӧvenpick’s signature style, hospitality and service once it opens in 2018.”
The waters surrounding the resort will play an integral role in its appeal through above and underwater experiences. It will feature a dive centre, beach sports activity centre, guest-only superyacht, as well as a small scale marine research centre and private marina.
The first Marine National Park (MNP) in the Maldives, which consists of a group of nine uninhabited islands commonly known as Edu Faru, is approximately 15 minutes from the resort via speedboat.
The Christmas Tree Rock and Orimas Thila dive sites are also a short boat ride away. The Maldivian resort will offer five dining venues. Among these are an all-day dining restaurant, a speciality restaurant with sunset views, a seafood restaurant, a grill bar and private dining room for special occasions.
Facilities will include a luxurious spa with 14 private treatment rooms.
Other features include a yoga pavilion, a state of the art gym, water sports centre, volleyball and tennis courts. The resort will also have a business centre, library and retail boutique.. Click here for full story
