Viceroy Maldives Resort to open 2 April 2012

February 2012 - Viceroy Hotel Group is pleased to announce the resort will officially open on 2 April 2012.  The intimate 61-villa island resort, part of the company’s steadily expanding Viceroy Hotels and Resorts brand, is set on the archipelago’s pristine Vagaru Island. 


Each of the resort’s luxury beachfront or water villas are nestled on the white sand beachfront or set directly on the turquoise sea.  Private plunge pools, ensuite baths and generous outdoor areas in each villa allow for optimal privacy and superior comfort in an awe-inspiring setting.  Viceroy Maldives will feature some of the most spacious accommodations in the Maldives, ranging from 1,300 sq feet to 3,000 sq feet.  The resort’s five dining options will offer everything from casual beachside cuisine to fine dining Italian fare.  Restaurant concepts will incorporate Asian and European influences, and private venues including an underground wine cellar will also be available for celebratory dining and chef’s table dinners.      

 
Those looking to relax and rejuvenate can enjoy indulgent spa treatments at the resort’s over-water spa villas, which will include seven treatment suites for individuals as well as couples.  Natural elements such as the sun, sea and Maldivian culture will be infused into holistic treatments, allowing guests to achieve an ultimate sense of well-being and healing.  Ayurvedic treatment experiences and yoga classes will all be offered as part of the programming at The Spa at Viceroy Maldives.     


Guests will be awed by the transcending interiors created by Yabu Pushelberg.  The award-winning firm drew inspiration from the islands’ natural beauty and culture, utilizing only the necessary elements in order to avoid competition with the unsurpassed location.  From the moment guests arrive on property by seaplane and are transported to their villas by golf cart, they will feel an ultimate sense of calm.  Whether lounging in an oversized daybed overlooking the lagoon, socializing beachside at the resort’s Pool Bar & Grill restaurant, or relaxing with children in the sophisticatedly playful kid’s zone, Viceroy Maldives exceeds the expectations of even the most discerning guest. 

         
“Extending the Viceroy brand across the world to the Maldives is a very exciting development for us,” says Nicholas Clayton, President of Viceroy Hotel Group.  “We look forward to welcoming our clientele to this breathtaking resort in early 2012.”
