Mandarin Oriental has signed a management agreement for an exclusive resort currently under development on a pristine, private island in The Maldives. The retreat is scheduled to open in the next 12 months.

Mandarin Oriental, Maldives is located 185 kilometres north of the capital city Male, a journey of 45 minutes by seaplane. The luxurious hideaway is being developed on its own exclusive island, Maavelavaru in the Noonu Atoll, encircled by five kilometres of uninterrupted white sand beaches and the turquoise blue lagoons and colourful reefs for which the region is renowned.

The resort comprises 114 spacious, stand-alone villas, including 20 water villas and four Presidential villas, ranging in size from 300 to 1,750 square metres.

Each secluded villa is surrounded by generous landscaping, providing total privacy, while opening onto a private pool and the lush vegetation of a serene garden with sweeping ocean vistas.

All are designed with indoor and outdoor bathing options, using a combination of Maldivian architecture and internationally-sourced materials.

The largest of the villas have private spa facilities, and the water villas extend over a lively coral reef affording stunning sunrise and sunset views.

Alfresco and underwater dining with an eclectic selection of local and international cuisines will be available at seven restaurants and bars, including an all day poolside café and bar, a beachfront signature restaurant, an alfresco Maldivian grill, a comfortable lounge and a dramatic underwater wine cellar with private dining room. An authentic Lebanese restaurant and bar, as well as a Japanese restaurant will be built over the ocean.

Meeting facilities include a spacious multi purpose function room, a business centre and a well-stocked library.

The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, Maldives, situated within 13,000 sq metres of tropical gardens, will feature 14 expansive treatment villas and six treatment suites, situated around a lavish outdoor Jacuzzi. Each villa consists of four separate pavilions dedicated to Mandarin Oriental’s welcome rituals, signature treatments, water and heat therapies and relaxation areas, allowing guests to be guided through an intimate and personalised spa journey.

There are endless leisure pursuits for those who tire of the transparent waters and remote beauty of the island, including a fully equipped fitness centre, a badminton court, tennis courts, squash courts, a soccer field and a beautifully appointed outdoor lap pool. In addition, there is a comprehensive water sports centre with a full service diving school, catering for guests who wish to explore the abundant coral reefs that fringe the island. For added peace of mind, the resort also has a fully equipped decompression chamber and emergency medical clinic available on site.
