The Le Méridien Maldives Resort & Spa will from 1 August welcome travellers at its address on Thilamaafushi, tucked away in a secluded southeastern corner of the Lhaviyani Atoll.
The natural island, located a 35-minute seaplane flight north of Velana International Airport, is home to indigenous flora and fauna, lagoon and coral reefs teeming with vibrant marine life.
The 154 villas at Le Méridien Maldives Resort & Spa are based on the 'Thilas' concept, in configurations of either one, two or three bedrooms.
Resort facilities include the Explore Spa by Le Méridien, a fitness studio, yoga pavilion, as well as a creative arts studio.
A total of six restaurants and bars are available, offering both international tastes and locally harvested produce.
Eco-friendly amenities and experiences feature prominently at the resort, ranging from a mini marine conservation programme, sustainable art classes to micro-green planting in The Greenhouse to expeditions to the resort’s wholly owned private island, Bodu Finolhu.
Rates start from US$600 per night in a Sunrise Overwater Villa, with two meals included.
