Global luxury hospitality company Jumeirah Group has revealed plans to open a new international resort in Maldives next month.

Located on the North Malé Atoll, Jumeirah Maldives is slated to open its doors for guests on 1 October 2021.

Singaporean design studio, Miaja, is responsible for the panoramic architecture and calming interiors of the resort.

The all-villa luxury resort boasts 67 beach and over-water villas that offer panoramic views of the Indian Ocean.

The villas are available in one-, two- and three-bedroom configurations, starting from 171m2.

Each villa offers a private infinity pool and large roof-top terrace with a dedicated dining area.

Guests staying at the three-bedroom villas can enjoy their own gym.

Jumeirah Maldives will have two of the group’s signature restaurants, Shimmers and Kayto, as well as the famous Talise Spa with its six overwater treatment rooms.

Jumeirah Group chief executive officer José Silva said: “The Maldives is a much-loved getaway for travellers from around the world and Jumeirah Maldives is a destination that delivers on our brand promise of Stay Different.

“The resort offers unparalleled hospitality with a genuine flair that exceeds guest expectations, while pushing the limits of design, culinary and service expertise.

“A truly breath-taking addition to the brand’s portfolio, Jumeirah Group’s new home in the Maldives guarantees an immaculate guest experience right from the very moment they set foot in our new contemporary resort.”

Jumeirah Maldives is easily accessible from Malé Airport through a speedboat or seaplane.

Furthermore, the resort offers activities such as water sports, beach volleyball, billiards and tennis, while guests can experience and enjoy a submarine tour through the vibrant marine habitat.
