The InterContinental Hotels & Resorts brand makes its Maldives debut with the opening of InterContinental Maldives Maamunagau Resort. The secluded resort sits on the tip of the Rea Atoll, near Baa Atoll, a UNESCO biosphere reserve.
The property offers more than 80 villas and residences. All guests enjoy Club InterContinental amenities, regardless of room type, including complimentary afternoon tea, after-dinner drinks and all-day refreshments. The property features six restaurants and bars and extensive wellness facilities.
Room types include two-story lagoon villas, with overwater views and direct beach and lagoon access, alongside private infinity and Jacuzzi pools; overwater villas with outdoor decks; and beach villas with direct beach access. Four two- and three-bedroom residences are also available.
“The opening of the InterContinental Maldives signals a new era for the brand; and further raises the bar in terms of luxury and immersive experiences here in the Raa Atoll. We are truly privileged to open this resort, which flanks the Baa Atoll UNESCO biosphere and creates an offering that enriches guests’ stay through education, exploration and relaxation, whilst ensuring the preservation of this ocean idyll for generations to come,” said Stefan O. Huemer, general manager, InterContinental Maldives Maamunagau Resort.
