HPL Hotels & Resorts has signed a contract to manage a new 160-villa property that is currently under construction in the Maldives.

Expected to open in early 2008, Kandooma Beach Resort will be the companys second property in the Maldives, after Rihiveli Beach Resort, which it has been managing since 2004. Both resorts are located about 15 minutes by speedboat from each other in South Male Atoll.

HPL Hotels & Resorts Marketing Communications Manager, Ms Karen Chan, said, Kandooma Beach Resort is conceptualized to provide its guests with an experience that seeks to make the guest holiday uniquely Maldivian, focusing on the delivery and enhancement of the natural beauty of the environment.

We see our market as wanting to come away richer, not only in relaxation and rest, but also in knowledge and experience Ms Chan said.

The resort will feature villas of various categories, ranging from garden and beach villas to sea front duplex and water villas, including one Royal Water Villa. Accommodation at the resort will be contemporary in appearance with clean lines and minimal clutter, while retaining the warmth of natural wood finishes.

Recreational facilities at Kandooma Beach Resort will include several restaurants and bars, a spa and gym, a swimming pool with Jacuzzi, a books-music-movies library, a football field, a retail shop, Internet stations, a diving school & seaports centre, and a picnic island located just five minutes away by speedboat.
