Stay inspired while you’re hunkering down at home by dreaming about what’s opening up in the Maldives once normality resumes.
Opening Soon: The Chedi Kudavillingili
Following on from existing properties in Sharjah, Montenegro, Switzerland and Oman—with several more luxurious properties in the pipeline—The Chedi hospitality brand is to open its first island resort in the Maldives. Planned for debut later for this, The Chedi Kudavillingili will encompass 99 villas, 36 of which are to be perched over the water, along with a spa featuring overwater treatment rooms, an all-day restaurant with hawker stalls, a beach club and bar and inviting 150-meter-long pool running through the centre of it all. The style of the resort will be defined by the aesthetics of Maldivian architecture, with complimentary interior design and landscaping from the design team in Singapore. In terms of activities, the resort promises to have several courts for a variety of sports and equipment for getting out onto the water and diving beneath its sparkling surface.
Opening Soon: Kagi Maldives Spa Island
A first of its kind for the archipelago, Kagi Maldives will offer a 360-degree wellness experience in the North Male Atoll. Now slated to open September 2020, the new wellness enclave will focus on providing a holistic mind, body and soul retreat in a space designed by architect Yuji Yamazaki, with a 1,500-square-meter spa featuring an open-air, teardrop-shaped floating yoga pavilion at the centre of it all. This wellness centre will be joined by 50 beach- lagoon- and ocean-villas, two restaurants, three bars, a dive centre and house reef. While you’re here, you’ll be offered a series of wellness programs making use of facilities like yoga and sound-healing studio and integrating therapies such as crystal and sound healing and coaching on topics such as nutrition. You’ll be able to complement this with time spent in and on the water and by tucking into cuisine inspired by the geographical ring of fire.
New Overwater Villas: Soneva Fushi
Soneva Fushi has long been one of the archipelago’s best-loved resorts. Since it opened in 1995, the retreat’s over-the-top facilities—which now include a state-of-the-art observatory, destination dining spots, glass-blowing studio and Six Senses Spa—have been joined by a collection of lavish villas tucked into the island’s flora on their own patch of pristine beach. Now, these hideaways looking out to sea will be joined by Soneva Fushi’s first-ever overwater villas. Planned for debut later this year, the eight new one- and two-bedroom Water Retreats will reflect the Soneva brand’s eco-philosophy through sustainable design that, like the rest of the resort, ensures the atoll’s ecosystems remain unharmed. Materials for the villas are sustainably sourced and low-impact design complements the natural beauty of the surroundings. Each overwater villa will come with a private pool, slide plunging into the ocean and choice of sunrise or sunset views.
The Launch of a New Spa: Velaa Private Island
Just a few weeks ago, one of the Maldives most superlative hideaways, Velaa Private Island, announced the 2020 launch of the new Velaa Spa and, tying in with its debut, a whole new range of wellness programs. Positioned entirely over water, the new spa promises guests a multi-sensory experience integrating a range of bespoke scents inspired by the island’s flora and the Indian Ocean. Just debuted, the spa now offers three- to five-day wellness experiences that are tailor-made for each guest—choose between The Detox, The Relaxing, The Rejuvenating and The Fitness Reviver package—monthly workshops with internationally renowned visiting practitioners, a new menu of healing treatments such as a chardonnay body scrub and green caviar facial, and new spa products including Velaa’s own range, new lines from Japanese skincare brand Kotoshina and Swiss beauty range Dr Burgener.
Providing the ultimate escapism, or simply giving people something to dream about, Raffles Maldives and The Nautilus are both giving guests the opportunity to reserve the entire island. Last month, Raffles Maldives announced that for a limited time guests can now book once-in-a-lifetime island privatization for a cool $1 million, giving them a four-night, five-day all-inclusive stay for up to 70 guests. Similarly, The Nautilus Maldives announced its buy-out package at the end of last year. For $377,188 per night, up to 93 guests can have the entire run of this paradisiacal island, with everything from butler service to seaplane flights included.
