Radisson Blu has opened Radisson Blu Resort Maldives – a private island retreat in the Alifu Dhaalu Atoll, which is Radisson Hotel Group’s first property in the Maldives.
Nestled on Huruelhi Island and one other islet, guests can take a 30-minute seaplane direct to the resort or a 20-minute domestic flight from Malé to Maamigili Airport followed by a 15-minute speedboat ride, creating opportunities for short stays and weekend breaks as well as extended vacations, weddings and honeymoons.
All 128 beachfront or overwater villas ranging from 215 to 790 square metres feature private pools, ocean views, and one, two or three bedrooms. The Presidential Suite promises two levels of indoor and alfresco living space overlooking the sea.
A diverse selection of restaurants and bars includes Raha, the casual all-day dining destination, Alifaan, the Mediterranean and seafood grill, Eats & Beats, the poolside bar, and Crusoe’s, the adults-only spot. Kabuki showcases innovative Nikkei cuisine, Mahurab is an overwater grapes and cigar bar, and The Lab is an exclusive restaurant for intimate twice-weekly pairing dinners. Alternatively, guests can dine in the privacy of their villa with 24-hour in-villa dining.
“We’re thrilled to open our first resort in the Maldives, one of the world’s most idyllic and iconic tourist destinations. Radisson Blu Resort Maldives is a truly spectacular property; its collection of pool villas, diverse dining, world-class leisure facilities and event space, all underpinned by Radisson Blu’s unique ‘Yes I Can!’ service ethos, will suit all types of travelers. We look forward to introducing a new era of authentic and inspiring hospitality to the Maldives,” says Andre de Jong, Vice President, Operations, South East Asia and Pacific, Radisson Hotel Group.
“It gives me great pleasure to welcome guests to Radisson Blu Resort Maldives. This is an outstanding resort that will fulfill every guest’s vision of a tropical island paradise. Importantly, our unique location – within striking distance from the international airport – makes the resort easy to reach for guests to make the most of their Maldivian island experience,” comments Zafer Agacan, General Manager, Radisson Blu Resort Maldives.
