Accor's rebellious luxury lifestyle brand SO/ will debut in the Maldives in 2023.

Located on its own exclusive island overlooking the Emboodhoo Lagoon, SO/ Maldives will feature 80 villas, including beachfront and over-water options.

SO/ Maldives will become the third resort to open on Crossroads Maldives, joining SAii Lagoon Maldives and Hard Rock Hotel Maldives at the multi-island, integrated leisure destination in the South Malé Atoll. The resort is located 15 minutes by speedboat from Malé’s Velana International Airport.

Guests at SO/ Maldives will be able to access the facilities at The Marina @ Crossroads, an 800-metre lifestyle area and beach walk with cafés, restaurants, a beach club, upmarket boutiques, a spa, the Marine Discovery Centre, a 30-berth yacht marina and meeting space.

"The resort’s location within Crossroads Maldives will allow guests to experience a truly vibrant lifestyle offering with plenty of options for both relaxation and adventure. SO/ Maldives will be a place to see and be seen for bold and stylish socialisers,” said Garth Simmons, Chief Executive Officer - Accor Southeast Asia, Japan & South Korea.

The project will be owned by an equal joint venture between S Hotels and Resorts Public Company, the flagship hospitality arm of Thailand’s Singha Estate, with Wai Eco World Developer, a leading business and real estate conglomerate.

Other SO/ Hotels & Resorts are found in Berlin, Bangkok, St Petersburg and Singapore.
