Minor Hotels Announces Launch Date of First Ever Avani Branded Property in The Maldives
Poised to bring laid back luxury to the shores of the Baa Atoll, Minor Hotels’ Avani brand will make its Maldives debut with the opening of Avani+ Fares Maldives Resort on 1st April 2023.
Set on the natural tropical island of Fares at the western edge of this renowned heart-shaped atoll, the 176-key resort will be Minor’s sixth property in the country, strengthening the company’s position as a key player in the Indian Ocean destination.
Reachable within 35 minutes of Velana International Airport, the new-build resort will unlock paradise with multiple accommodation options, from beach pool villas and four-bedroom beach pavilions to expansive three-bedroom over water villas that fan out across the island’s turquoise bay. Avani+ Fares Maldives Resort has been designed to welcome group getaways and memorable multigenerational family stays with two, three and four-bedroom beach pavilions, and two and three-bedroom over water villas. Through their multifaceted design, they strike a balance between privacy and connectivity, offering spaces for both relaxing and entertaining. Indoor-outdoor living can be enjoyed with tribal themed rooms that lead onto private swimming pools and sun decks, with the island’s pristine white sands and glistening shores just steps away. Breezy palm lined pathways will lead guests to a selection of unique bars and restaurants, a water sports centre, an AvaniFit gym and a contemporary AvaniSpa. The AvaniKids and Teens Club will be a hive of activity with daily programming and adventures in the great outdoors.
“We are excited to confirm the opening date of the highly anticipated Avani+ Fares Maldives Resort and look forward to welcoming guests from 1st April 2023,” said William Costley, Minor Hotels’ Senior Vice President of Operations for Asia. “The first hotel opening in the area for more than three years, Avani+ Fares will continue to highlight Avani as a trailblazing hotel brand, filling a gap in the Maldivian hotel landscape”.
