It is also accessible within a 30-minute seaplane journey or by a domestic flight from the Maamigili Airport, followed by a 15-minute speedboat ride to the resort. The resort features 128 exclusive villas including family villas, and a premium overwater villa.
Commenting on the newly inked agreement, Thomas Hagemann, vice president, Future Openings and Special Projects, Asia Pacific, Carlson Rezidor global brand, asserted that the resort would “provide the international leisure market with a full range of innovative design-led products and services”. “The group continues our growth trajectory in Asia Pacific, we are pleased to expand our footprint into the Maldives with an iconic Radisson Blu resort on the island,” he said.
