Maldives’ first boutique luxury resort to open in August 2009

Maldives is set to be home to a boutique luxury resort, Alila Villas Hadahaa, which will be first property on Gaafu Alifu (North Huvadhoo) Atoll in the southern part of the island. The Alila property’s opening in August 2009 will also mark the first Maldives property to be awarded Green Globe certification for ‘Building, Planning and Design Standard’.

The resort features 14 stilted over-the-water Aqua Villas and 36 Island Villas, 20 of which come with a private plunge pool. Huvadhoo Atoll’s first island-based PADI 5 Star dive centre will offer full valet services and diving experiences. There are six dive sites. Singapore-based Chan Soo Khian of SCDA Architects designed the resort. Environmental considerations have been taken into account.

Alila Villas Hadahaa is located in the Huvadhoo Atoll, one of the largest natural atolls in the world and the deepest atoll in the Maldives with a central lagoon plunging about 90 m down. It encompasses only 250 islands over a lagoon area covering 2800 sq km.
