Movenpick Resort Kuredhivaru Maldives has opened

The new resort on a private island in the Noonu Atoll will soon be accessible by a thrilling speedboat ride.

The Movenpick Resort Kuredhivaru Maldives has opened, with 105 villas and suites.

These include 72 pool villas, 30 beach pool suites and three beach spa pool residences, each with their own private plunge pool. 

The resort is just 45 minutes by seaplane from the capital, Malé, and is accessible by a 15-minute speedboat ride from the new airport on Maafaru island in Noonu Atoll, which will open in early 2019.

Four dining venues include the market-style all-day diner, ONU Marché restaurant and bar, with buffet and à la carte dishes made from locally-sourced produce; Movenpick Coffee & Wine Lounge; and pool-side restaurant Latitude 5.5, with ocean views.

Seafood lovers can enjoy fresh catches at the overwater Bodumas Seafood Restaurant, which overlooks the Indian Ocean.

Movenpick Chocolate Hour will also be staged in the resort lobby daily, offering guests the chance to taste complimentary chocolate, presented in novel ways.
