13 September, 2023

The Cocoon Collection continues to expand its presence in Maldives with the signing of a momentous collaboration with Pritzker Prize Winner Shigeru Ban to design and develop an ultra-luxury Resort-Residence in the Maldives.

Named Infinite Maldives, the island lies just a 40 min speedboat ride away from the Velana International Airport. The private island resort sits nestled within North Male Atoll, in the great company of exceptional brands such as Ritz Carlton and Patina Maldives. The Resort will be operated by The Cocoon Collection and will feature 49 exquisite Residences, in a combination of both 1 and 2 Bedroom Land and Water Villas. The island resort will harness the best in the world of cuisine, wellness, adventure, and nature to give investors and travelers a truly world class experience. Featuring restaurants, bars, spas and wellness centers; the island is poised to be the next bright star in the Maldives.

“When it came time to dream of what Infinite Maldives could be, we wanted to work with an architect who had an incredible sensitivity to nature, someone who understood that the design of the island and its spaces must merge form and function, that these are homes to enjoy togetherness with one another but also capture the imagination of the worldwide traveler… when all things were considered, Shigeru Ban was the perfect fit.” said Reza Magdon Ismail CEO of CPG, speaks on the decision to approach Shigeru Ban.

Operated by The Cocoon Collection of the Maldives, The Residences will be available for ownership and will generate returns to its buyers. It will be one of the first dedicated Resort Residences in the region. This has incredible upside to the savvy investor of today, merging an investment vehicle with a leisure product.

Shigeru Bans work with natural materials has won him acclaim the world over; bending and manipulating raw materials to create soft and intimate spaces while being considerate to nature and the impact of his designs within it. His humanitarian efforts take him across the globe, from Sri Lanka to Turkey and his sensitive design has set him apart as a true visionary in the world of Architecture.

“We are extremely excited for our collaboration with Shigeru Ban on our latest Island. With the changing times we felt that, as hoteliers and custodians of these islands; we had a responsibility to create something that would uplift and add value to the Maldives world beating hospitality status; and that is why we are thrilled to be working with Shigeru Ban and his team.” says Alessandro Azzola Managing Director of The Cocoon Collection.

Infinite Maldives will be unveiled in Q3 of 2023. For more information visit
