JW Marriott set for Maldives debut

05 Sep 2019
The JW Marriott Maldives Resort & Spa is set to open this autumn on the island of Vagaru, Shaviyani Atoll, in the Maldives.

With architectural design concept, interior design and art consultancy from Miaja Design Group, the resort takes design inspiration from nature and fauna, with a distinct emphasis on organic elements and modern lines. The interiors focus on comfort and lightness combined with unique experiences in a genuine Maldivian getaway atmosphere.

The 60 villas on property have been created to look like inverted Dhoni boats, and each will include its own private pool. The resort will also feature a Spa by JW, which will house six double treatments rooms, one deluxe treatment suite with a private ‘wet room’, a unisex hair salon, manicure and pedicure stations, a wellness boutique, an overwater gym, and an open-air yoga pavilion.

There will be 29 secluded one- and two-bedroom beach villas nestled among the island’s lush greenery, each with its own private beach area, while 32 villas will stand on stilts over the Laccadive Sea. A four-bedroom Royal Water Villa will come complete with nanny’s quarters.
