Maltese hotel operator Corinthia Hotels has announced the development of a luxury resort in the Maldives.
The two-island resort, Corinthia Maldives, is set to open in the last quarter of 2025. Located in Male’ atoll, the resort is 15-minutes away from the Velana International Airport.
“We are thrilled to announce the arrival of Corinthia in the Maldives. Together with our partners, the developers, we will work to create a unique architectural statement that will delight the senses,” said Simon Naudi, CEO of Corinthia Hotels.
Corinthia Maldives will be developed by Maarah Pvt Ltd, a local company affiliated with Maarah Holdings Ltd, a UAE company.
The resort will be developed on two islands with 73 villas on the larger island with the smaller private island reserved for exclusive use.
“We are excited about this milestone Maldivian luxury resort development, which is located only 15 minutes from Male’ International Airport and which will provide long-term local employment opportunities whilst contributing towards the growing destination tourism economy of the Maldives,” said René Beil, Managing Director of Maarah Holdings and Maarah Pvt Ltd.
“We are fortunate of our thirty years’ legacy of real estate investments and developments of pioneering nature, and we are privileged to be partners with a leading luxury hospitality brand such as Corinthia”.
The resort will feature aquatic-inspired architecture designed by global firm HKS. The design of the main pavilion and villas are inspired by the curves of manta rays. The resort will also include state-of-the-art wellness facilities, multiple fitness spaces and a choice of five restaurants operated by renowned brands.
