Take an unspoiled private Indian Ocean island, add the Italian style and grace of Baglioni Hotels, and you get one of the most hotly anticipated luxury openings for 2018. The new Baglioni Resort Maldives, the brand’s first Maldives resort, will be located on the island of Maagu in the Dhaalu Atoll, a 40-minute hop by seaplane from the capital, Malé.
Set to open next March, the resort will provide 99 villas with a selection of jungle, beach or over-water options, including an 870sqm presidential water villa with three bedrooms and private pool with Jacuzzi.
The property will have sand floors offering barefoot dining and vegetables grown in the hotel’s own garden. Guests will have a choice of three restaurants including Italian, international and Japanese options.
The hotel is the ideal backdrop for high-end corporate retreats or incentives. Groups can relax in the spa or meditate in the tranquillity of the yoga pavilion, play beach volleyball or work out at the beach gym.
Other activities that can be booked for corporate groups include cruises, BBQ fishing dinners, trips to the local village and watersports from kayaking, windsurfing and topcat sailing to snorkelling or a fun pedalo ride. And underwater enthusiasts can explore the best sites for enthralling dives or boat excursions to track down the impressive tropical fish.
