Jumeirah prepares for debut of all-villa resort in the Maldives
Featuring architecture and interiors by Miaja Design Group, Jumeirah Maldives will invite guests to discover its beach and overwater villas and island-inspired dining experiences.
Accessed by speedboat or seaplane, this hotly anticipated scheme is ideally located in the turquoise waters of the North Malé Atoll, offering a sense of seclusion for romantic escapes as well as an array of engaging activities.
A luxurious new Maldives retreat
Global luxury hospitality company Jumeirah Group has announced that Jumeirah Maldives will start welcoming guests from 1 October 2021. The project will be distinguished by its panoramic architecture and serene interiors, which have been designed by Singaporean-based Miaja Design Group to harmonise with the natural environment through modern Mediterranean style.
José Silva, CEO of Jumeirah Group, said: “The resort offers unparalleled hospitality with a genuine flair that exceeds guest expectations, while pushing the limits of design, culinary and service expertise. A truly breath-taking addition to the brand’s portfolio, Jumeirah Group’s new home in the Maldives guarantees an immaculate guest experience right from the very moment they set foot in our new contemporary resort.”
Designed for couples, families and active travellers
The resort encompasses 67 spacious beach and overwater one-, two- and three-bedroom villas with views over the Indian Ocean. Each villa has its own infinity pool and a large rooftop terrace complete with dedicated dining area, while the three-bedroom versions even come with private gyms.
These villas make the most of the natural light with oversized windows framing the beach and ocean, and reflect their locale through the inclusion of carefully chosen artwork and handcrafts.
Memorable dining experiences
Dining experiences are a focus here, with the two signature restaurants Shimmers and Kayto highlighting Mediterranean and Nikkei flavours. Shimmers offers the culinary creations of Chef Roberto Rispoli in an alfresco oceanview setting, whereas Kayto hopes to capture diners’ attention with its open-kitchen concept.
Guests will also be able to unwind in Talise Spa, home to six overwater treatment rooms and daily yoga classes. Other activities on offer at the resort include water sports, beach volleyball, billiards, tennis, underwater photography, planting coconut trees, making coconut oil and even taking a submarine tour.
Moreover, families are catered for with a splash waterpark, indoor kids’ play area and outdoor cinema screening family favourites.
