Accor debuts in Maldives
Malé, Maldives – 21 August 2017 –
AccorHotels announces its first luxury destination in the Maldives, Dhevanafushi Maldives Luxury Resort, Managed by AccorHotels, which opens on 1 September.
Set on the private island of Meradhoo, the resort will be repositioned following further enhancements in late 2018, and join the collection of Raffles hotels and resorts.
Dhevanafushi Maldives Luxury Resort, Managed by AccorHotels has 21 island villas and 16 ocean villas with private pools, three restaurants, a scenic cocktail bar and an array of facilities and activities to relax, rejuvenate and reinvigorate the body, mind and spirit.
“We are thrilled to announce our first luxury resort in the Maldives at a time when the region is enjoying excellent growth, especially with travellers from Asia Pacific,” says Patrick Basset, chief operating officer of AccorHotels, Upper Southeast and Northeast Asia.
“AccorHotels is bringing to the resort our expertise in delivering unparalleled luxury experiences renowned in our Raffles, Fairmont and Sofitel brands, along with the benefits of our award-wining global loyalty programme, Le Club AccorHotels.”
Vincent Yeo, chief executive officer of owner CDL Hospitality Trusts, adds: “With active asset management being one of the key pillars of our management strategy, we believe the appointment of AccorHotels for the resort will allow us to optimise its asset potential and redefine this resort at the very top end of the luxury resort sector in the Maldives, following the re-positioning exercise in 2018.”
