The Westin Maldives Miriandhoo Resort to Debut in October 2018

Marriott International announced the forthcoming debut of Westin Hotels & Resorts in the Republic of Maldives, with the opening of The Westin Maldives Miriandhoo Resort in October 2018. Developed by Belluna Co. Ltd, Japan and Asia Capital PLC, Sri Lanka, The Westin Maldives Miriandhoo Resort is set to herald the Westin brand’s wellness positioning in the Maldivian oasis.

Nestled on a beautiful coral island in the Baa Atoll, a designated UNESCO Biosphere Reserve site, The Westin Maldives Miriandhoo Resort will feature 70 villas and suites, 41 on island and 29 overwater. Poised over the sea on stilts and with an area of almost 200sq.m. each, the overwater suites are amongst the largest a resort has to offer in the Baa Atoll region. Assembled by the award-winning Milan-based architects, PEIA Associati, the resort’s design takes inspiration from the ocean with a visionary approach towards environmental sustainability.

The dining options include three resort restaurants and a rooftop bar. The all-day dining experience at Island Kitchen stays true to the Westin brand’s Eat Well pillar through a thoughtful menu, combining Chinese, Indian and Maldivian fare. The Pearl is the resort’s specialty restaurant and is the ideal venue to indulge in exquisite Japanese cuisine in an elegant setting with exceptional ocean views. At Hawker, guests can sample authentic Asian food in a casual and buzzing restobar with a live kitchen. The Sunset Bar is a relaxed lounge serving tapas and imaginative cocktails created by talented mixologists.
The idyllic resort also features Westin’s signature branded spa concept, the Heavenly Spa by Westin™, the 24-hour WestinWORKOUT® fitness center and the Westin Kids Club®
