General Hotel Management (GHM) is opening its first resort in the Maldives.
The Chedi Kudavillingili, a 99-villa property with a 150-metre pool, is slated to open this year.
It will be a 25-minute speedboat ride away from Male International airport on the kilometre-long coral island of Kudavillingili.
There will be 36 overwater villas and 63 island-based villas plus a spa with treatment rooms, a beach club and bar, an all-day restaurant and cooking stalls.
Guests also have the opportunity to enjoy underwater sports and surfing.
“Our plans for The Chedi Kudavillingili will showcase the enduring beauty of the Maldives and its people, but we will also remain true to GHM’s tenets of intuitive luxury, timeless designs, bespoke experiences and quality service,” said Hans Jenni, GHM’s co-founder and president.
The project is being overseen by Asian construction, real estate, hospitality and manufacturing company MFAR.
Other GHM resorts include The Nam Hai in Vietnam, The Chedi Muscat in Oman and The Chedi Andermatt in Switzerland.
