The 141-villa resort honors the Maldives' culture, people, nature, and art, channeling its energy to reveal the destination's allure via Le Méridien's signature European-chic perspective. It is the Paris-born brand's debut in one of the world's most enchanting locales, Thilamaafushi, the southern pocket of Lhaviyani Atoll. Along with Singaporean developer Chiu Teng Enterprises, it is part of Marriott Bonvoy's network of 30 outstanding brands.
The Le Méridien Maldives Resort & Spa is the second Marriott International resort to open in the Maldives this summer, and the destination's seventh Marriott International facility overall. Thilamaafushi is a nine-hectare eco-friendly refuge rich in indigenous flora and fauna, surrounded by a dazzling lagoon and coral reefs teeming with colourful marine life, including Manta Ray pods and turtles.
At Le Méridien Maldives Resort & Spa, "Au Soleil" encourages a summer mindset. Guests will be able to dine in six restaurants and bars, which will include worldwide flavors and locally sourced ingredients. Tabemasu, the resort's signature restaurant, is inspired by Japanese fishing villages and water lanterns and offers a teppanyaki counter and a private open-air pavilion. Thilamaafushi Marine Master's, a carefully devised program that inspires young adventurers to engage with the world around them, is unique to the resort. The Le Méridien Family and Kids' Hub offers activities ranging from day and night nature treks to micro-green projects for families.
The Le Méridien Maldives Resort & Spa is one of the archipelago's first state-of-the-art luxury hotels. Through cutting-edge techniques that focus on renewable energy, waste minimization, and the use of renewable resources, the hotel maintains a minimal carbon footprint. The broad use of solar panels and lights, as well as a large hydroponic farm, are notable initiatives. "We are looking forward to welcome guests and allowing them to experience the sights, sounds, and aromas of the area," said Nilesh Singh, General Manager.
