Accor has expanded its portfolio of luxury hotels with the opening of a 21-villa resort in Maldives.

Raffles Maldives Meradhoo is located at the southern end of the archipelago, near the equator on the Gaafu Alifu Atoll.

The resort is accessible by domestic flight, 55 minutes from Male International Airport followed by 15-minute speedboat ride from Kaadedhdhoo Airport.

The Raffles Maldives Meradhoo is Accor’s fourth property in Maldives, and the first under the Raffles brand. “Boasting 1,200 islands, Maldives is home to the best beaches in the world and now, with the opening of Raffles Maldives Meradhoo, is also home to the best of luxury hospitality. We look forward to offering guests the most natural beauty set within an incredible resort that offers the finest luxury hotel experience and unrivalled service in the destination,” said Patrick Basset, Accor’s Chief Operating Officer for Upper Southeast and Northeast Asia and the Maldives.

The main island is home to Beach Villas and Beach Residences, featuring private pools, generous living spaces and a  lavish marble bathroom with a sunken bathtub and outdoor shower.

The Raffles Royal Residence and a secluded collection of Overwater Villas and Residences, which lies adjacent to one of the vibrant house reefs and which can be reached by a traditional Maldivian Dhoni boat, is set to launch during the last quarter of 2019.

Olivier Larcher, General Manager of Raffles Maldives Meradhoo said, “For couples looking for an unforgettable romantic hideaway, our exceptionally spacious villas and the discreet expertise of the Raffles butler service redefines the resort experience. From intimate dining with our private chef service to snorkeling and diving in the world’s most breath-taking coral reefs, we create a place where guests can enjoy the best of both worlds in a destination known for its stunning surroundings.”

The resort features an enviable selection of F&B outlets, a spa, fitness centre, and variety of water sport activities.
