BANGKOK, 28 April 2017: Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts has signed an agreement to manage its first resort in the Maldives.
The planned 105-unit resort, Mӧvenpick Resort & Spa Kuredhivaru Maldives, will be situated on the remote Kuredhivaru Island in Noonu Atoll in the northern part of the Maldives. 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.
Located on one of the Maldives’ most idyllic atolls, the resort will be one of the few properties in the area to offer guests an opportunity to completely immerse themselves in spectacular scenery and untouched nature. Many of the surrounding islands are still uninhabited.
“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.
The resort will feature a comprehensive dive centre, beach sports activity centre, exclusive guest-only super yacht, 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 popular Christmas Tree Rock and Orimas Thila dive sites are also an easy boat ride away.
Wellness and recreational facilities will include a luxurious spa with 14 private treatment rooms. Other features include a tranquil 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.
