AccorHotels will take over Dhevanafushi Maldives Luxury Resort, its first management contract for a resort in the Maldives from September 1.

It will be re-branded as the Raffles Maldives Meradhoo Resort in late 2018 following a refurbishment. The resort currently has 21 island villas and 16 ocean villas with private pools, three restaurants and a cocktail bar.

“We are thrilled to announce our very first luxury resort in the Maldives at a time when the region is enjoying excellent growth, especially with travellers from Asia Pacific,” said Patrick Basset, chief operating officer of AccorHotels, Upper Southeast and Northeast Asia. “AccorHotels is bringing to the resort our expertise in delivering unparalleled luxury experiences renowned in our Raffles, Fairmont and Sofitel brands, along with the benefits of our award-wining global loyalty programme, Le Club AccorHotels.”
