Best Western is to open its first property in the Maldives this September.Best Western Madoogali Resort and Spa is located on its own island, North Ari Atoll, 48 miles west of the Maldives’ capital of Male.
The hotel features 56 palm-thatched chalets, designed to blend in naturally with the surrounding environment. Each chalet has a veranda facing the sea and is furnished and decorated in a modern tropical style that captures the essence of the island country.
Besides the view, key attractions include a refined restaurant, a spa, a dive center and numerous water sport activities, including windsurfing, canoeing, kayaking, water-skiing, catamarans and pedalòs.
Restaurant specialties include grilled local fish, a variety of pasta and pizza dishes and traditional Maldivian recipes.
The resort will also feature Best Western’s own Bhuvana Spa brand featuring therapies that use selectively blended ingredients to help revive the mind, body and soul.
“The Maldives falls into the elite club of the world’s top ten most desirable destinations and it is a great thrill for Best Western to finally enter this highly attractive market,” said Glenn de Souza, Best Western International’s Vice President Operations – Asia. “As a key development in our on-going Asia and Middle East expansion, Best Western Madoogali Resort and Spa bears all the characteristics that make our brand so attractive to travelers.”
