Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts has signed an agreement to manage its first resort in the Maldives.
The planned 102-unit resort, Mӧvenpick Resort & Spa Kuredhivaru Maldives, will be situated on the remote Kuredhivaru Island in Noonu Atoll, providing a desirable sanctuary surrounded by pristine natural beauty in the undeveloped northern part of the Maldives.
It is scheduled to open during the first quarter of 2018.
The contemporary tropical resort will combine comfort and style, with 32 Beach Villas and 70 Over Water Villas.
While designed as a destination for relaxing and rejuvenating escapes offering a high degree of privacy, the resort will also feature an array of onsite recreational facilities to entertain a wide range of guests, from honeymooners to adventurous families.
Located in one of the Maldives’ least developed regions, the resort will be one of the only 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 global holiday destination that is still increasing in popularity,” said Mövenpick chief development officer, Andrew Langdon.
“We look forward to introduce guests of Mӧvenpick Resort & Spa Kuredhivaru Maldives to Mӧvenpick’s signature style, hospitality and service once it opens.”
Rich in marine life and excellent diving opportunities, the waters surrounding the resort will play an integral role in its appeal through a variety of above and underwater experiences.
The resort will feature a comprehensive dive centre, as well as a small scale marine research centre and private marina for 12 catamarans.
Exquisite culinary experiences are a cornerstone of the Mövenpick experience and the new Maldivian resort will offer five unique dining venues.
Among these are a welcoming all-day dining restaurant, a speciality restaurant with sunset views, a seafood restaurant, a grill bar and private dining room for special occasions.
