GHM continues global expansion with Maldivian coral island hotel

Our plans for The Chedi Kudavillingili will showcase the enduring beauty of the Maldives and its people
– Hans R Jenni

Hotel group General Hotel Management (GHM) has revealed details of The Chedi Kudavillingili, its first resort in the Maldives, later this year.

The development is part of GHM’s global expansion plan which kicked off in its third decade. As well as the new Maldives hotel, the group has an additional five properties under development in Taiwan, India and the UAE.

Located on a coral island called Kudavillingili, the mixed-use resort development will feature a spa with eight overwater treatment rooms.

Accommodation will be comprised of 63 island-based villas and 36 overwater villas, with all units offered as residences for sale.

“Our plans for The Chedi Kudavillingili will showcase the enduring beauty of the Maldives and its people, but we’ll also remain true to GHM’s tenets of intuitive luxury, timeless designs, bespoke experiences and quality service,” said Hans R Jenni, GHM’s co-founder and president.

Dr P Mohamed Ali, chair of the MFAR Group, the project’s owning company said: “I’ve seen the kind of impact a GHM resort can have on a destination, and I’m looking forward to how GHM will redefine the luxury resort experience in the Maldives.”

Established in 1992, GHM is a hotel group based in Southeast Asia which conceptualises, develops and operates hotels and resorts.

It has a portfolio including four destinations in the UAE, Montenegro, Oman and Switzerland.

“This new Chedi is to stand on the shoulders of GHM’s reputation, one that has been defining and redefining what’s chic for nearly three decades,” said Jenni. “The Chedi Kudavillingili is to be the best yet.”

Guests will be offered a range of island activities including sunset cruises, barbecues and fishing expeditions, as well as water sports and diving excursions.

The Chedi Kudavillingili will also feature a beach club, bar and all-day dining restaurant.
