Jumeirah Group announces stunning new Maldives hotel
The resort will welcome guests from October onwards to exceptionally designed over-water villas
Global luxury hospitality company Jumeirah Group this week announced the launch of its newest international resort, Jumeirah Maldives, which will welcome its first guests on 1 October 2021.
The hotel takes the form of an all-villa luxury resort tucked away in the crystalline turquoise waters of the North Malé Atoll, easily reachable by speedboat or seaplane from Malé Airport. Its idyllic location offers privacy for romantic getaways, a blissful island retreat for friends and family, and experiences to suit the more active traveller.
The resort's striking architecture and tasteful interiors are the work of Singaporean design studio Miaja, which has created an contemporary aesthetic in harmony with the stunning natural environment, echoing modern Mediterranean chic – a design that sets it apart from other hotels in the region.
Jumeirah Maldives offers 67 beach and over-water villas in one-, two- and three-bedroom configurations, all assuring panoramic views of the Indian Ocean. Starting from 171sqm, each villa features a private infinity pool and large roof-top terrace with a dedicated dining area for guests to take in the views while indulging in delicious gastronomic treats or relaxing with a picture-perfect movie-under-the-stars experience, while the three-bedroom villas also boast their own gym.
The island hotel also comes complete with two on-site branches of the Jumeirah Group's signature restaurants, Shimmers and Kayto. The former will feature Chef Roberto Rispoli’s exquisite cuisine set against a backdrop of amazing sunrises, breath-taking ocean views and chilled vibes thanks to a resident DJ and regular live music performances. Kayto, meanwhile, will captivate guests over dinner, with an impressive open kitchen that will draw the diner’s eye to the team’s culinary mastery.
Elsewhere the Talise Spa, with its six overwater treatment rooms, offers unfettered access to wellness and relaxation with a range of therapeutic and re-energising treatments.
José Silva, Chief Executive Officer of Jumeirah Group, said of the new property: "The resort offers unparalleled hospitality with a genuine flair that exceeds guest expectations, while pushing the limits of design, culinary and service expertise. A truly breath-taking addition to the brand’s portfolio, Jumeirah Group’s new home in the Maldives guarantees an immaculate guest experience right from the very moment they set foot in our new contemporary resort."
