Baglioni Resort Maldives to Debut in October 2017

(Baglioni Hotels)

The Maldives continues to entice globetrotting sybarites for luxurious r&r in a paradise-on-earth setting. In a destination known as a playground for honeymooners and jetsetters, luxury hospitality brands continue to up the ante with new resorts like Soneva Jani and LUX* South Ari Atoll.

One to keep on your radar for 2017: Baglioni Hotels is set to make a splash with its very first beach resort. And the official website says it all: “Paradise with Italian grace.” The brand is known for its luxury hotels in major urban destinations in Italy like Milan, Venice, Florence and Rome- plus a handful of properties elsewhere in Europe, like the lovely Villa Gallici in Aix-en-Provence. When it comes to what to expect in the Maldives, here’s a quote from the resort’s Facebook page: “Discover a new way to experience paradise.”

Come October, Baglioni Resort Maldives will open with 96 villas overlooking the gardens or the Indian Ocean. A focus will be on both Italian design and gourmet cuisine, so expect four different venues for fine food-- from Japanese to Italian delicacies.
