Baccarat Hotel & Residences Maldives in 2027

19 March, 2024

SH Hotels & Resorts, the hospitality management group established by the forward-thinking Barry Sternlicht, Chairman and CEO of Starwood Capital Group, has unveiled ambitious plans to redefine luxury and elegance in the Maldives. Their latest venture, Baccarat Hotel & Residences Maldives, slated to debut in 2027, aims to set a new benchmark for opulence in one of the world’s most sought-after travel destinations.

Situated across five interconnected islands spanning over 111 acres in the South Malé Atoll, this exceptional resort promises an unparalleled level of luxury. Conveniently located just a brief boat ride (30 minutes) from Malé’s Velana International Airport, the resort will boast its own shallow-water lagoon and reef system, enveloping guests in natural beauty upon arrival. With over 50 hotel villas and 53 private residences available for purchase, Baccarat Hotel & Residences Maldives offers a diverse range of accommodations designed to cater to every preference.

Crafted by the renowned HKS architecture firm and adorned with interiors by 1508 London, known for their bespoke and innovative designs, the resort seamlessly merges contemporary elegance with tropical charm. From one- to three-bedroom hotel villas with private pools to extravagant six- and seven-bedroom mansions on a secluded peninsula, every abode exudes luxury. For the utmost exclusivity, the resort presents eight- and nine-bedroom Private Islands, offering intimate escapes surrounded by the Maldives’ breathtaking scenery.

Dining at Baccarat Hotel & Residences Maldives promises to be a culinary journey, with specialty restaurants helmed by top chefs from around the world. In addition to exquisite dining experiences, guests can enjoy curated retail spaces, a Baccarat-themed crystal garden, an outdoor cinema, an art gallery showcasing renowned artists’ work, and more. Sporting enthusiasts will find plenty to indulge in, from a nine-hole golf course to traditional Maldivian fishing excursions and snorkeling adventures amidst vibrant marine life.

Those seeking relaxation can retreat to the meticulously designed wellness spa, offering an array of signature treatments and hydrotherapy circuits. Complemented by yoga pavilions and a state-of-the-art gym, guests can rejuvenate their mind, body, and soul amidst the serene island surroundings.

Embracing a commitment to sustainability, Baccarat Hotel & Residences Maldives will feature eco-friendly initiatives and a turtle rehabilitation center, allowing guests to connect with the natural environment responsibly.

Owned by Madevco Holdings Limited (ADGM), known for its dedication to creating extraordinary residences, Baccarat Hotel & Residences Maldives is poised to redefine luxury hospitality upon its opening in 2027, offering an unforgettable blend of elegance, sophistication, and unparalleled experiences.
