Jumeirah Opens Second of Two Maldives Resorts

Major news from the Maldives, where the Jumeirah Vittaveli Maldives debuted today as the second Jumeirah property to open in the Maldives this year.

Located 20 minutes by speedboat from Malé International Airport, Jumeirah Vittaveli has 91 villa-suites, all with their own private pool. (Cool touch: Some of the villas are over water.) Other feature highlights include three restaurants, a bar, a Talise Spa and facilities for young children and teenagers.

About that: The resort has Sinbad’s Kids Club for children from two to 12 years of age, and a teen club for those aged 12 and above. In addition, a dedicated family and children’s pool has been created, adjacent to the Kids and Teens clubs, and all three restaurants have children's menus. Even Talise spa has introduced special treatment programs for families. "Aila Time" ("Aaila" being the Maldivian word for "family") is a family therapy, while the ila ‘beyond’ journey teaches young adults aged between 12 and 16 about spa culture.

Jumeirah Group has opened a total of six new hotels in 2011: Jumeirah at Etihad Towers in Abu Dhabi, Jumeirah Zabeel Saray in Dubai, Jumeirah Dhevanafushi and Jumeirah Vittaveli in the Maldives, Jumeirah Himalayas Hotel Shanghai in China and Jumeirah Frankfurt in Germany. With new properties opening in Dubai, Kuwait, London, Rome, Azerbaijan, and Mallorca in the coming six months, Jumeirah Group expects to have doubled its portfolio of hotels, resorts and serviced residences under management since the start of 2011.
