Corinthia – a growing family of luxury hotels in London, Budapest, Lisbon, St. Petersburg, and the Island of Malta – has signed a hotel management agreement to operate a luxury resort in the Maldives, due to open in 2025.
Early works on reclamation and the first phase of the development of the resort located on the Kaafu Atoll have commenced and will feature two islands hosting a 73-key resort on the larger of the two and a second, smaller private island for exclusive use.
Corinthia Maldives will feature aquatic-inspired architecture designed by global firm HKS. The main pavilion and all villas are taking on forms and shapes that take inspiration from the gentle curves of the ocean’s Manta Ray. The resort will also include state-of-the-art wellness facilities, multiple fitness spaces and five restaurants operated with internationally renowned brands.
“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 located only 15 minutes from Male International Airport.
The hotelier has other projects in the pipeline in Rome, New York, Brussels, Bucharest, Doha and Riyadh.
