Set to open in 2025, Mandarin Oriental in The Maldives will feature some of the largest villas in the archipelago

Mandarin Oriental is set to bring its fans an exciting new experience in 2025—a private island resort in The Maldives. 

The resort is currently being developed on a pristine Indian Ocean site, stretching across not one, but three private islands on Bolidhuffaru Reef in South Male Atoll, where guests can immerse themselves in the white sand beaches and the vibrant coral reefs that The Maldives is known for. 

Mandarin Oriental is focused on developing its resort portfolio and has been looking to enter The Maldives for some time. This project represents the right opportunity for the Group” said James Riley, Chief Executive of Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group.
