Corinthia Hotels has secured a hotel management agreement to oversee a luxurious resort in the Maldives, set to open its doors in the fourth quarter of 2025. 

The initial stages of the project, involving land reclamation and the first phase of development, have already commenced on the Kaafu Atoll. The resort will consist of two islands, with the larger one accommodating a 73-key resort and the smaller one designated for exclusive use. Drawing inspiration from the graceful curves of manta rays in the ocean, Corinthia Maldives will showcase aquatic-themed architecture designed by HKS. In addition to the stunning design, the resort will feature a variety of amenities, including wellness facilities, multiple fitness spaces, and five unique restaurants.

René Beil, the managing director of Maarah Holdings and Maarah Pvt Ltd (the developer of the luxury resort to be operated by Corinthia), expressed enthusiasm for this significant milestone in the development of a premium Maldivian resort. Situated a mere 15 minutes away from Male International Airport, the resort is poised to create long-term employment opportunities for the local population while contributing to the flourishing tourism industry of the Maldives.

Various renowned firms have been engaged for the project, with HKS serving as the lead architects. RLB Hoolooman has been appointed as the project managers, leveraging their experience of successfully completing 14 resorts in the Maldives. They will collaborate with the Maldives Transport and Contracting Company (MTCC), the primary contractor responsible for land reclamation and shore protection works. China State Construction has been selected as the general contractor for the resort, while Beaufort Global, based in Dubai, U.A.E., will assume the role of asset manager.
