IHG has opened InterContinental Maldives Maamunagau Resort, the first InterContinental Hotels & Resorts property in the region, positioned on the southernmost tip of the Raa Atoll near Baa Atoll.
The resort boasts 81 Beach, Lagoon and Overwater Villas and Residences and is the first to offer all guests access to the world-class service and amenities of Club InterContinental throughout the entire island.
The first of its kind in the Maldives, the two-story Lagoon Villas combine overwater views with direct beach and lagoon access, as well as private infinity and jacuzzi pools. Overwater Villas offer expansive outdoor decks and Beach Villas provide direct beach access. The resort also has four exclusive two- and three-bedroom Residences, with the largest, the three-bedroom Royal Beachfront Residence, offering 790 square metres of luxurious privacy.
Spa & Wellness
The resort’s signature AVI Spa features six overwater treatment villas along with steam rooms, ice fountains, a yoga pavilion and a fitness centre. A leading Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) practitioner, who is specialised in acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine, uses the pillars of Chinese wellness to restore harmony and balance to guests through various treatments.
As the first and only all-Club InterContinental resort, InterContinental Maldives provides guests with access to exclusive benefits and personalised service throughout their stay. A dedicated Island Curator commits to creating everlasting memories and adding thoughtful details. Club InterContinental benefits include afternoon tea with rare loose-leaf varietals selected by the in-house tea sommelier, after-dinner drinks and all-day refreshments by the pool or beach.
Restaurants & Bars
The resort offers six distinct restaurants and bars including The Retreat, an adults-only enclave with a private bar and its own infinity pool at the water’s edge, and Café Umi, a Japanese-inspired restaurant providing elevated comfort and classic favourites, inspired by natural, organic and sustainable cuisine. Fish Market is a unique sea-to-table interactive kitchen concept blending the best Maldivian seafood with aromatic flavours from South East Asia. The Lighthouse delivers a memorable dining experience with 360-degree views of the Indian Ocean, while The Collective is a more casual affair with grab-and-go offerings. Sunset Bar provides a stylish and romantic ambience with the best sunset moments on the island.
Beach pool villas at InterContinental Maldives Maamunagau Resort start from US$1,250 per night.
