Outrigger to Open a Maldivian Resort in 2015

Outrigger Enterprises Group has snagged some sweet real estate in the Maldives. We hear the company has purchased the Konotta Island Resort in the Gaafu Dhaalu Atoll. Following a renovation, the hotel is expected to open as the Outrigger Konotta Maldives Resort in July 2015.

The private island of Konotta is located 211 miles to the south of Male and conveniently accessed by a 55-minute flight from Male to Kaadedhdhoo Airport, followed by a 20-minute private speedboat journey.

When it opens next year, the Outrigger Konotta Maldives Resort will have 27 beachfront one- and two-bedroom pool villas and 21 overwater pool villas. Four additional beachfront pool villas and an overwater presidential villa are also planned. The resort will also have innovative dining concepts, a marine education center, a Navasana Spa and retail outlets.
