The Westin has just announced that they have opened the anticipated The Westin Maldives Miriandhoo Resort, the brand’s first hotel in the Maldives. I did a quick search and bookings are available now starting at $499 per night for an Island Villa and go up much higher from there for an over the water bungalow. Of course you can also use points!
You will need a seaplane transfer to get there:
Seaplane Transfer Information
The quickest transportation to the resort from Velana International Airport (MLE) is via seaplane. Seaplane operates during daylight hours from 6 am to 3:30 pm only. The resort requires flight details at least three days in advance for the arrangement of any seaplane or domestic transfer. Please contact the resort for more information.
Westin Opens In Maldives
As reported by Marriott News:
Westin Hotels & Resorts today announced the anticipated opening of the brand’s first hotel in the Republic of Maldives with the opening of The Westin Maldives Miriandhoo Resort. Developed by Belluna Co. Ltd, Japan and Asia Capital PLC, Sri Lanka, The Westin Maldives Miriandhoo Resort heralds the Westin brand’s wellness positioning in the Maldivian oasis.
“We are thrilled to introduce the Westin brand to the Maldives, strengthening our presence in Asia Pacific,” said Mike Fulkerson, Vice President, Brand and Marketing, Marriott International Asia Pacific. “The opening of The Westin Maldives Miriandhoo Resort is a significant addition to our portfolio underscoring a transformative and meaningful wellness proposition for travelers, who are increasingly prioritizing well-being even while on the road.”
The Westin Maldives Miriandhoo Resort features 70 villas and suites, 41 on island and 29 overwater. Each villa is shaped with an eco-friendly double roofing to create the perfect natural ventilation. Outdoor rainforest showers are a distinctive feature. Poised over the sea on stilts and with an area of almost 200 square meters each, the overwater suites are among the largest a resort has to offer in the Baa Atoll region.
