Marriott International has announced the forthcoming debut of Westin Hotels & Resorts in the Republic of Maldives, with the opening of The Westin Maldives Miriandhoo Resort in October 2018.
Developed by Belluna Co, Japan and Asia Capital PLC, Sri Lanka, The Westin Maldives Miriandhoo Resort is set to further strengthen the Westin brand’s wellness positioning in the Inidan Ocean paradise.
Nestled on a coral island in the Baa Atoll, a designated UNESCO Biosphere Reserve site, The Westin Maldives Miriandhoo Resort will feature 70 villas and suites – 41 on island and 29 over water.
Poised over the sea on stilts and with an area of almost 200 square meters each, the overwater suites are amongst the largest a resort has to offer in the Baa Atoll region. Assembled by Milan-based architects PEIA Associati, the resort’s design takes inspiration from the ocean with an approach towards environmental sustainability.
The dining options include three resort restaurants and a rooftop bar. The all-day dining experience at Island Kitchen combines Chinese, Indian and Maldivian fare. The Pearl is the resort’s specialty restaurant that offers Japanese cuisine in an elegant setting with ocean views.
At Hawker, guests can sample authentic Asian food in a casual and buzzing restaurant and bar with a live kitchen. Finally, the Sunset Bar is a relaxed lounge serving tapas and imaginative cocktails created by talented mixologists.
The resort will also feature Westin’s signature branded spa concept, the Heavenly Spa by Westin, the 24-hour WestinWORKOUT fitness centre and the Westin Kids Club.
