Accor Opens Fifth Hotel in Maldives

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 world.

 For something more casual, guests can enjoy healthy café treats and alchemy experiences at Sol Rising; or one of the region’s first organic, vegetarian and vegan restaurants, Phat Chameleon, set amidst a vegetable and herb garden. For those on the go, the playful Bites on Wheels food cart, offers refreshing 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.

Fitness enthusiasts can start at the resort’s Fit Trail island jogging track with five fitness stations offering a variety of physical trails; or level up with a complete boot-camp Raaveriya Workout experience that kick starts with calisthenics followed by an invigorating run on the beach and a refreshing swim in the lagoon. The resort’s Spa by Phytomer features eight treatment rooms perched over a shallow, white sand lagoon.

“With our generous all-inclusive offering, we look forward to welcoming guests to the Pullman Maldives Maamutaa Resort where they can explore the island’s sandy beaches, nature trails and renowned diving sites while enjoying a full wellness and culinary journey,” said John Bendtsen, General Manager of Pullman Maldives Maamutaa Resort.

As a special opening offer, guests can enjoy complimentary return transfers valued at US$360 per person when booking a stay of five nights or more. This promotion is valid until 23 December 2019. Terms and conditions apply.
