A New Set of Luxury at Raffles Maldives Meradhoo
Stepping up to the next level of luxury to one of the world’s largest and most remote island atolls, Raffles is pleased to introduced the opening of the new Raffles Maldives Meradhoo.
On 1 February 2019, AccorHotels will open their fourth property in the Maldives and its first under the Raffles brand with the 38-villa resort, Raffles Maldives Meradhoo. A hidden gem with unparalleled views of the Indian Ocean, the resort is the perfect over-water escape with two distinct experiences for those seeking a private getaway or simply wanting to enjoy the natural pristine water surroundings.
Home to Beach Villas, Beach Residences and the Raffles Royal Residence, which opens in the second half of 2019, the luxurious property features a private pool, generous living spaces and lavish marble bathroom with a sunken bathtub and outdoor shower. A secluded collection of Overwater Villas and Residences lies adjacent to one of the vibrant house reefs which can be reached by a traditional Maldivian Dhoni boat.
The terraces have a special feature of glass flooring panels that guests can marvel at the marine life below. White, powdery sand frames sparkling clear waters where two magnificent reefs provide a thriving habitat for the marine life including baby sharks, turtles and a myriad of tropical fish. The hotel has a resident marine biologist and team of marine butlers on hand for guests who want to learn more about the unique and beautiful insights of the underwater world.
At night, the moon and stars reflect on the mirror-like ocean, creating an extraordinary spectacle.
Rich gastronomical offerings at Raffles Maldives Meradhoo is the Thari all-day diner, Yuzu – a Peruvian and Japanese fusion restaurant and The Firepit, where guests can enjoy various flame-grilled chef specialty dishes under the stars. Yapa Sunset Bar features a selection of tapas and freshly-prepared sashimi, original cocktail concoctions that are inspired by the national drinks of South America and Japan, while the world’s most prestigious Champagnes and wines are found at the popular Long Bar.
The award-winning Raffles Spa is set over the water and offers a private escape opening door to discovery with authentic treatment expressions. Luxury facials by Biologique Recherche bring a transformative body treatment using the purest extracts and essential oils by Aromatherapy Associates and Margaret Dabbs London provides first class manicure and pedicure.
