New Hotels Opening in the Maldives
Everywhere you look in the Maldives these days it seems as though new tourist opportunities are opening; this, despite the infighting that has plagued the Maldivian government since the start of the year. Nonetheless, two new resorts have recently opened with an eye on the coveted European travel market, offering Maldives luxury holidays of very different flavours. One resort is a cutting-edge, high-tech wonder while the other is a more placid and laid-back resort focusing on the Maldives’ natural beauty.
NIYAMA Maldives is located on the Atoll of Dhaalu, just 40 minutes from the country’s capital via seaplane. When you arrive you’ll be greeted with an experience of sight and sound guaranteed to take your breath away. The resort has been designed to stimulate the senses and ensure guests remain active, mentally and emotionally stimulated, and thoroughly enjoying themselves. As an example, the hotel offers a group of games simulators perfect for today’s video game generation. For a more holistic approach guests can engage in Zumba, tai chi, and yoga. And for completely unique experience there’s the opportunity to enjoy a drink at Subsix, the first underwater nightclub in the world.
In terms of dining, NIYAMA offers a very different experience known as Tribal. This concept is unique to the Maldives and involves guests sitting in outdoor pods surrounded by a variety of cooking stations – almost like an elegant camp site of sorts. Cooks utilize several different cooking methods including asado barbecue, hot rock grills, and even open flame.
Meanwhile, the eco-friendly Reethi Beach Resort can be found in the western chain’s Baa Atoll. It is what you would typically expect from an Indian Ocean resort whose main stage is nature itself. At Reethi Beach you’ll be treated to lush, green vegetation accented by towering palm trees, a white sand beach next to a crystal-clear lagoon, and one of the most beautiful natural reefs in the entire region. The area is a favourite spot for snorkelling and diving because of its natural marine beauty.
The Reethi Beach Resort was built with a commitment to reduce environmental harm and maintain long-term sustainability. Guests will enjoy an elegant and sensual atmosphere perfect for taking in the sights and sounds of a truly breathtaking tropical paradise.
If you’re considering a visit to the Maldives but you’re concerned about the political environment, there’s no need to be. The Maldivian government released an official announcement roughly 10 days ago to let the world know they are still open for business and the resorts and other tourist venues are operating in full swing. They have pledged not to interrupt anyone’s holiday plans even as they sort out their internal issues.
