Accor, an international hotel operator in the Maldives, has signed a hotel management agreement with S Hotels and Resorts Public Company Limited and Wai Eco World Developer Pte. Ltd. (WEWD) to introduce SO/Hotels and Resorts to the idyllic Indian Ocean archipelago.
SO/Maldives will showcase a selection of 80 spectacular luxury villas, including beachfront and over-water options, all with designer interiors and a bold twist. Nestled on its own exclusive island overlooking the azure Emboodhoo Lagoon, just 15 minutes by speedboat from Malé’s Velana International Airport, this eclectic resort will bring a fresh sense of avant-garde style and sophistication to the Maldives, while also reflecting the local spirit of this captivating country.
Scheduled to open in 2023, the new resort will take centerstage on the third island of Crossroads Maldives, an integrated leisure destination in the exotic South Malé Atoll, connecting it to a wealth of world-class attractions and facilities.
This makes SO/ the perfect fit for Crossroads Maldives, which was recognized as the Best Leisure Development Maldives (Five-Star) in the Asia Pacific Property Awards 2021-2022. The presence of such a player on the global hotel scene will play a key role in helping Crossroads Maldives to expand and reach new markets worldwide, thanks to Accor’s global distribution and loyalty network.
Guests can unwind on SO/ Maldives’ private island or take advantage of fantastic facilities at The Marina @ Crossroads, an 800-meter lifestyle area and beach walk where visitors can discover cool cafés, refined restaurants, a chic beach club, upmarket boutiques, a spa, the Marine Discovery Centre and a 30-berth yacht marina. Unforgettable events can be hosted at the oceanfront wedding venue and meeting space.
