Mӧvenpick Hotels & Resorts, recently purchased by Accor as part of the French company’s ongoing acquisition binge, has announced the opening of its very first property in the Maldives.

Not to mention a tennis court, state-of-the-art gym and a water sports centre, as well as family friendly features like the Mӧvenpick Little Birds Club, offering a range of activities for all the family, as well as babysitting services.
Furthermore, with the regions reputation as one of world’s top dive sites, Mӧvenpick Resort Kuredhivaru also comes with a diving centre to organises snorkelling, house reef explorations and island cruises.
Patrick Basset, Accor’s chief operating officer in upper Northeast and Southeast Asia and The Maldives for AccorHotels, said: “Mӧvenpick Resort Kuredhivaru is one of the few properties located in the Noonu Atoll house reef, home to some of the most beautiful diving spots in the Maldives and offering guests a unique opportunity to immerse themselves in this vibrant and unspoiled marine life.”
