The property is in desirable proximity to the Malé International Airport, a 25-minute speedboat ride away. Private transfers are available to and from Velena International airport. Room The 99-villa property will feature 36 overwater villas and 63 island-based villas. Amenities The Chedi Kudavillingili will launch a spa with eight overwater treatment rooms, a beach club and bar, an all-day dining restaurant and Hawkers Stalls featuring four live cooking stations. Recreational opportunities on the island run the gamut from courts for several different sports to surfing and a plethora of on-the-water and underwater pursuits.
