Carlson Rezidor to enter Maldives with wellness resort in 2019
Hospitality giant Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group is set to enter the Maldives for the first time, after signing a management contract for a spa resort on the southern part of the Alifu Dhaalu Atoll.
Rezidor will operate the property on behalf of owner Chang Hua Holdings under the Radisson Blu brand.
The 128-villa Radisson Blu Resort Maldives will be designed as a family-friendly resort with a focus on wellness.
While exact details are yet to be confirmed, the resort will house a large spa and a yoga pavilion, as well as a sea sports and dive centre.
“We continue our growth trajectory in Asia Pacific,” said Thomas Hagemann, Carlson’s vice president of future openings in Asia Pacific. “We're pleased to expand our footprint into the Maldives, with an iconic Radisson Blu resort.”
Carlson Rezidor’s Asia Pacific portfolio consists of 117 hotels, including 51 Radisson Blu hotels.
