DAMAC Group has announced that the construction of its Mandarin Oriental Bolidhuffaru Reef Resort is advancing steadily under development in the Maldives.

The 120-key project has made significant strides in its development, with the completion of the one-bedroom beach villa category structure. Concurrently, construction activities for the structure of the two-bedroom beach units and the back of the house are currently in progress. Moreover, the project is advancing with the construction of over 60 over-the-water villas and the development of the north and south jetties.

The commencement of works for three and four-bedroom units, along with the initiation of ground preparation for front-of-house zones and award of fit-out works are expected to begin shortly. To support these efforts, multiple contracts have been successfully awarded to contractors, covering various aspects such as piling and landscaping requirements.

"We're thrilled to embark on this journey into 2024 with tremendous momentum. Coming off a record-breaking year, we're witnessing accelerated progress across our pivotal initiatives. Of particular significance is the development of our luxury resort in the Maldives, a project deeply rooted in our commitment to unparalleled hospitality. As one of our inaugural ventures into luxury resort accommodations, its evolution is a testament to our dedication to delivering unforgettable experiences. We eagerly anticipate sharing this exquisite destination with the world," said Mohammed Tahaineh, General Manager of Projects.

Overall, the project demonstrates a structured approach to development, with clear progress evident across different phases and aspects of construction and planning. The strategic allocation of contracts ensures steady advancement toward project objectives and opening in Q4 2025.
