AccorHotels Opens Mercure Maldives Kooddoo

AccorHotels has expanded the rapidly growing range of midscale resorts in Maldives with the opening of the Mercure Maldives Kooddoo.

Located in Gaafu Alifu Atoll, Mercure Maldives Kooddoo is adjacent to Kooddoo domestic airport and the first beachfront property directly accessible via a 55-minute flight from Male without the need for a speedboat journey.

Patrick Basset, Chief Operating Officer for AccorHotels, Upper Southeast and Northeast Asia said, “We are delighted to offer one of the best value full-service hotels in the south of Maldives at a time when airlift and inbound markets are diversifying for properties outside of the luxury segment.”

Mercure Maldives Kooddoo has 68 villas comprising of 43 Over Water Villas and 25 Beach Villas. Twenty of the villas feature a private 3x6 meter swimming pool. Click to enlarge.

In addition, guests can take full advantage of the location with a five-star PADI Dive & Water Sports Centre offering courses and adventures to the best dive sites of the atoll for sharks and pelagic encounters, easily reachable by a 10 minute-boat ride from the hotel. Water sports include snorkelling, sailing, kayaking, windsurfing, catamarans, jet skis, and fun tubes. There's also a 50-metre lagoon-side swimming pool, tennis court and Kids’ Club, tennis and badminton courts, and fully equipped fitness facilities.
