GHMs first Maldivian property, The Chedi Kudavillingili to open in 2020

PUBLISHED February 04, 2020

Asian hospitality brand, GHM (General Hotel Management Ltd) has announced the opening of its first resort in the Maldives, The Chedi Kudavillingili in the second quarter of 2020.

Located on the pristine island of Kudavillingili, The Chedi Kudavillingili, designed by a global team of designers is a Maldivian architectural marvel giving an overarching aesthetic appeal with complementary interior design and landscaping. 

This mixed-use resort development features total 99 villas; 36 over-water villas, 63 island-based villas and a 150-metre-long central pool with a desirable proximity to the Malé International Airport, a 25-minute speedboat ride away.

Hans R. Jenni, Co-founder and President, GHM commented, "Our plans for The Chedi Kudavillingili will showcase the enduring beauty of the Maldives and its people, but we will also remain true to GHMs tenets of intuitive luxury, timeless designs, bespoke experiences and quality service,"

Additionally, The Chedi Kudavillingili is set to launch a spa with eight overwater treatment rooms, a beach club and bar, an all-day dining restaurant and Hawkers Stalls featuring four live cooking stations.

"Ive always been impressed with GHMs work particularly with The Chedi Muscat," said P. Mohamed Ali, Chairman, MFAR Group.

"Ive seen the kind of impact a GHM resort can have on a destination, and I am looking forward to how GHM will redefine the luxury resort experience in the Maldives, just as they have done in Muscat," he further added.   

Recreational opportunities on the island run the gamut from courts for several different sports to surfing and a plethora of on-the-water and underwater pursuits.

Since its founding in 1992, GHM has taken the road less travelled into destinations not so well known at the time, opening resorts such as The Nam Hai in Vietnam, The Chedi Muscat in Oman and The Chedi Andermatt in Switzerland. Each won renown for designs that embraced local archetypes and were then enhanced by an alchemy of Asian aesthetics and contemporary cool.

GHM expects the majority of the resorts guests to come for the quiet, the placid waters and the pristine sands, for sunset cruises, barbecue dinners and fishing expeditions.
