Opening of the JW Marriott Maldives Resort & Spa resort

The JW Marriott hotel chain, part of Marriott International, Inc., is pleased to announce the opening of the JW Marriott Maldives Resort & Spa on Vagaruh Island, located in the Shaviyani Atoll of the Maldives. This is the first hotel of the renowned JW Marriott brand in this paradise corner of the planet. It will be possible to reach the new resort from the capital, Male, in just 55 minutes by seaplane.

Guests can expect 60 spacious villas, with the smallest covering approximately 235 sq. m, each featuring its own pool and sunbathing terrace. Both two-story overwater villas with pools and single-story beachfront villas with pools are set on stilts in the crystal-clear waters of the Indian Ocean. They offer superb views of sunrises and sunsets. The beachfront villas, also equipped with pools, open onto the beach with pristine white sand. The two-story beachfront villa with a pool is designed for larger groups or families: each floor has its own living rooms, bedrooms, and bathrooms. The interiors are inspired by the surrounding nature and local culture, reflected in the chosen color palette and materials used. The sloping thatched roofs resemble overturned traditional fishing boats called dhonis with white herons sitting on them, dipping their heads into the water.

"We are incredibly excited about the opening of the first JW Marriott hotel in this truly amazing place," says Mitzi Gaskins, Vice President of Global Brand Development. "By embracing the philosophy of integrity, we aim to create the perfect conditions for our guests to fully enjoy top-notch service with their loved ones and unwind not only physically but also spiritually."

Guests can enjoy a fitness center located in the lagoon, a beach pavilion for outdoor sports activities, daily strength and cardio workouts with instructors, yoga, gymnastics, and breathing exercises. And, of course, the signature Spa by JW spa center, where everyone can find the perfect treatments for themselves.

JW Marriott Maldives Resort & Spa has not overlooked food enthusiasts: specifically for them, the hotel features five restaurants with diverse menus to suit every taste. Here, traditional Maldivian sea treasures and exotic Thai cuisine can be enjoyed at the tree-top café, wood-fired oven pizzas and Japanese teppanyaki are available, as well as daily fresh produce from the hotel's own garden. Guests can explore three bars with a wine list of over three hundred labels from the Old and New World and a bar menu offering Japanese sake as well as exclusive signature cocktails based on any of the 98 types of rum. For those who prefer the comfort of their own villa, round-the-clock delivery service is promptly provided.

Children will undoubtedly be delighted with the Little Griffins kids' club featuring a playground in the shape of a 13-meter pirate ship, a nap area, a dining room, playrooms, and classrooms where young guests can have fun and learn at the same time. The resort features a huge pool right on the edge of Vagaruh Island exclusively for adults, as well as a clubhouse with a cigar room, hookah lounge, and billiards table.

A few meters from the island lies a coral reef, where guests of JW Marriott Maldives Resort & Spa can admire the rich marine life. A local marine biologist oversees the reef ecology and organizes diving, snorkeling, and other water sports activities. Stunning white sandy beaches combined with thoughtful design and unique Maldivian culture guarantee an unforgettable vacation!
