3 mins read

Standard International has announced the opening of The Standard Huruvalhi Maldives. Located on a protected island nestled between Raa and Baa atolls, the resort is a short seaplane ride from the airport. 

“It is such a treat within the same year to show the world what The Standard can be in one of the busiest places and one of the most tranquil places on the planet,” said Amar Lalvani, CEO of Standard International.  

“What makes me so proud is that despite the vast difference in setting, the culture of both are unmistakably Standard.” 

The property promises a unique blend of relaxation and social life, and it’s perfect for a romantic escape or a getaway with everyone you know. Whether an overwater villa floating in the lagoon or settled on a pristine sandy beach front, each of its villas will feature their own private lounge deck and plunge pool.  

“You will fill your days snorkeling our naturally protected house reef or dive deep on boat excursion through the local waters,” the resort said. 

“Physical activity not your thing? Relax in our indoor hydrotherapy oasis, The Standard Spa, complete with a communal hammam, aroma steam room, daily yoga and nine private treatment rooms to leave your body refreshed. No Standard stay is ever complete without a night to remember; so whether dancing to tribal beats at a beach bonfire or at our glass bottom, overwater nightclub, the only thing that will end the fun is the sunrise.” 

The resort, featuring 115 private pool villas, marks the brand’s first property in Asia. After Sansiri PLC became a majority stakeholder in late 2017, The Standard, Huruvalhi Maldives is the company’s next destination within its extensive global pipeline; which includes Koh Samui, Phuket, Hua Hin, Milan, Paris, Lisbon, Bordeaux, Mexico City, and Chicago, to name a few. 

The most powerful brand in the boutique hotel business – The Standard Hotel Brand consist of 5 Hotels located in Los Angeles, Miami and New York City. The brand focuses on a unique hospitality experience through their guest rooms, public spaces, night life and restaurants. 

Created in 1999, The Standard hotels are known for their taste-making clientele, their pioneering design, and their unrelenting un-standard-ness. With now 6 hotels in New York, Los Angeles, Miami, and now London, the goal of every Standard project—be it a hotel, a rooftop discothèque, or a magazine—is to defy conventions, up the aesthetic stakes, and deliver an experience that can only be had at The Standard.
