Accor signs new Maldives resort

Hotel group Accor is bringing a new hotel resort to the Maldives.

It signed a hotel management agreement with S Hotels and Resorts Public Company Limited and Wai Eco World Developer to introduce SO/ Hotels & Resorts to the Indian Ocean archipelago.

SO/ Maldives will have 80 luxury villas, including beachfront and over-water units.

It is located on its own island overlooking the Emboodhoo Lagoon, just 15 minutes by speedboat from Male's Velana International Airport.

It is scheduled to open in 2023.

SO/ Maldives forms part of integrated leisure destination CROSSROADS Maldives.

It includes The Marina @ CROSSROADS, an 800-metre lifestyle area and beach walk with cafés, restaurants, a beach club, upmarket boutiques, a spa, the Marine Discovery Centre and a 30-berth yacht marina.

"The resort's location within CROSSROADS Maldives will allow guests to experience a truly vibrant luxury lifestyle offering with plenty of options for both relaxation and adventure," said Garth Simmons, Chief Executive Officer - Accor Southeast Asia, Japan & South Korea.

SO/ Maldives will join Accor's collection of five resorts in the Maldives which include the midscale Mercure brand, premium Pullman and Mövenpick brands, and the luxury Raffles and Fairmont brands.
