Club Med brings Google Street View to Maldives

Holiday company Club Med has launched partnered with Google Street View to bring prospective holiday makers up close and personal in the Maldives.

With an ever expanding reach, Google Street View has helped people explore searing deserts, the deep cold of Antarctica as well as the depths of the Grand Canyon.

And now Club Med have brought this amazing technology to the tiny island nation of the Maldives.

A world first, Club Med have released Street View Trusted imagery for their flagship five hectare resort, Finolhu Villas.


The resort, based on the island of Gasfinolhu, opened in early 2015 and boasts a glorious infinity pool, 52 villas that either stretch out into the ocean on stilts or nestle on the beach (each with private pool) and a world class restaurant – all now open to explorers on Google Street View. 

This isn’t the only technological advance linked to the island, it’s also one of the first to be powered 100 per cent by solar panels on the buildings and walkways meaning its eco credentials are second to none.

Estelle Giraudeau of Club Med UK said: “We’ve chosen to bring Google Street View to the Maldives to showcase this amazing eco-friendly resort and let people experience just how beautiful the island is before even stepping foot on it.

“We hope this will encourage people to not only choose to visit the Maldives but to choose an option that ensures the local ecology and economy are supported and protected.

“We also toured the island by drone earlier in the year adding this to the Street View experience lets people navigate at their own pace to see the beauty of the island.”
