NH Collection Debuts in the Maldives
The Brand’s First Expansion Out of Urban Locations.
Minor Hotels, an owner, operator, and investor with a portfolio of over 530 hotels and resorts in 56 countries, announces the NH Collection brand’s Maldivian debut with NH Collection Maldives Havodda Resort. The resort, slated to join the portfolio in August this year, will be the NH Collection brand’s first property outside of an urban location.
The resort will offer 120 luxury villas, 60 beach and 60 over-water, each with breathtaking views of the Indian Ocean. Delicious culinary options range from an all-day dining experience with international cuisine, a beachside grill, poolside pizzas and a cocktail bar with light bites. The stunning island also features a dedicated Asian concept spa, a fully equipped gym, an inviting swimming pool and pool bar, and a kids club to occupy the little ones. A water sports and dive centre will house a dedicated expert team to provide guests with countless activities out on the water, along with the unspoilt reef just off the beach, home to a plethora of colourful marine life.
The addition of NH Collection in the Maldives will strengthen the brand’s position by expanding into new regions and broadening its focus from central city locations.
Dillip Rajakarier, Group CEO of Minor International and CEO of Minor Hotels, commented, “We are pleased to grow our NH Collection brand and bring it to the Maldives for the first time. The continued expansion of Minor Hotels and particularly NH Collection into strategic tourism hotspots across Asia and the Middle East is positioning the brand as a key global player. We expect NH Collection Maldives Havodda Resort to become a sought after destination in this idyllic part of the world.”
The new resort will be the seventh property operated by Minor Hotels in the Maldives. It is also part of the NH Collection brand’s strategic expansion into new regions, with a particular focus on Asia Pacific and the Middle East. Further launches on the horizon include NH Collection Chiang Mai and NH Collection Luang Prabang, as well as many new properties set to launch in China over the coming months. The brand also debuted in the UAE earlier this year with the launch of NH Collection Dubai The Palm, with two further properties currently under development – one in Qatar and a second property in the UAE.
