An underwater restaurant and a floating cinema are just two of the unique features of the new 5-star Centara Grand Muthaafushi Resort & Spa in the Maldives, which will open in 2019 in the south-western portion of Baa Atoll.
Centara Hotels & Resorts has signed a new hotel management agreement for the Centara Grand Muthaafushi Resort & Spa Maldives, comprising 24 land villas and 77 water villas with an array of international restaurants, including an underwater restaurant, a floating cinema, a dedicated Thai spa and a fitness centre.
Thirayuth Chirathivat, chief executive officer of Centara Hotels and Resorts said: “We are delighted to be selected to manage and operate this new five-star resort in the Maldives. We believe that Centara Grand Muthaafushi Resort & Spa Maldives will fit well into our Centara Grand resort portfolio. This expansion of the business in the Maldives is in line with Centara’s growth strategy to strengthen our presence both in the South Asian region and internationally.”
Baa Atoll, also known as Southern Maalhosmadulu Atoll, is approximately 123 kilometres north west of Malé International Airport in the Maldives. Consisting of 75 islands dotted around three separate natural atolls, Baa Atoll is home to some of the richest biodiversity in the region, and has held the status of UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve since June 2011. The recognition was a significant achievement for the Maldives, placing it in the company of world famous ecological sites.
The resort will have a soft opening in the fourth quarter of 2018.
