Accor has expanded its portfolio of Pullman
hotels to the popular honeymoon and holiday destination of
Maldives in the Indian Ocean.
Set amidst 18 hectares of lush tropical flora
and fauna on the Gaafu Alifu Atoll, the Pullman Maldives Maamutaa
Resort is an all-inclusive resort that boasts 122 villas,
including two exclusive Aqua Villas featuring bedrooms submerged
beneath the turquoise waters, and a Royal Suite which is pretty
much a resort within a resort.
The Pullman Maldives Maamutaa is accessible by a
55-minute domestic flight
from Velana International Airport in Malé, followed by a 15-minute
speedboat ride from Kooddoo Airport.
“We are delighted to be shining the
spotlight on the Maldives once again with the launch of our fifth
Accor property. Pullman Maldives Maamutaa Resort is a stunning
addition to the premium segment and we look forward to welcoming
global nomads to explore the spectacular marine life of Gaafu
Alifu Atoll and its surrounding diving sites,” said Patrick
Basset, Chief Operating Officer of Accor, Upper Southeast &
Northeast Asia and the Maldives.
Featuring a range of
over-water and beachside villas, Pullman Maldives Maamutaa is
surrounded by lush vegetation, a natural lake and sun-kissed
beaches, plus one of the region’s largest and deepest lagoons.
With water temperatures slightly cooler than many other islands,
the richness of the marine life and the colours of the coral are
unparalleled. For example, this is the only place where divers can
spot up to 13 species of sharks in the water.
F&B options include Mélange, an all-day dining restaurant; The Hub, a
sunken pool bar offering signature drinks and sharing
plates; Saffron Affair for a sophisticated evening of tapas and
crafted cocktails; and Souq Oven for Middle Eastern dishes, for
pairing with a wine list featuring over 80 wines from around the

sorbets and light snacks throughout the day.
Children and teens
are well catered for at Playground and Skillz Sports Centre, with
a range of entertaining and educational activities including
snooker, table tennis, various board games and a golf simulator.
Nature walks, treasure hunts, and outdoor sports are also
available for the adventurers at heart to enjoy the natural beauty
of the island.

shallow, white sand lagoon.
