Outrigger Konotta Maldives Resort welcomes first guests

The Outrigger Konotta Maldives Resort officially opened its doors to its first guests last week, welcoming a family from Dubai with a traditional Maldivian ceremony.

The family arrived to the resort via a 30-minute speed boat transfer from Kaadedhdhoo Airport in the Gaafu Dhaalu Atoll in the Maldives, where they were greeted by the Outrigger Managing Director for Asia Pacific, Darren Edmonstone, and the hotel’s General Manager, Pascal Billon.

The father of the family cut the ribbon to officially open the newest luxury resort in Outrigger Resorts' collection while Mr Edmonstone declared:

"Outrigger hosts and supporting contractors in the Maldives have done a terrific job in the run up to our opening today,

I'm confident our large and wonderfully well appointed Beach and Ocean Pool Villas will become a major talking point in the Maldivian tourism scene."

The luxury beachfront resort has 53 villas made up of 24 Beach Pool Villas, seven Two-Bedroom Pool Villas, 21 Ocean Pool Villas, and the 600-square-metre Presidential Villa.

Located 31 miles north of the equator, and 211 miles from the capital of the Maldives Male, Outrigger Konotta Maldives Resort sits on a private island.

Upscale facilities at the resort include a 25-meter pool, a fitness centre, the Outrigger Navasana Spa, a scuba diving centre, the Reef Adventure Centre, a kids club, a relaxation zone, and a shop.

Guests can enjoy dining options such as the all-day Blue Salt restaurant, the Nala Rah grill restaurant and Raw Bar with views of the ocean, The Deck bar, and Poolside with a wide range of food and drinks.

Mr Billon added;

"We have very special dining, water sports and excursion options ready for all our guests, no matter where they come from,

The Outrigger on Konotta Island is shaping up to be a perfect holiday destination for a wide variety of international guests who are seeking an iconic Maldives holiday."

Outrigger Hotels and Resorts operate high end properties throughout the Asia-Pacific region, Thailand, China; and Vietnam. The hotel group recently made its debut in the Indian Ocean region with the opening of the Outrigger Mauritius Resort and Spa.
