Imagine a party only surrounded by oceanic views and accompanied with world class service. This is what the new Standard Hotel in Maldives is all about. The Standard, an American hotel brand, opened its doors to the shores of The Maldives on November 1. With over a 100 overwater and beach villas and a private infinity plunge pool for each, this is the ultimate destination for the perfect summer vacay. The hotel is easily accessible by either a short 35 minute sea plane ride from Velana International Airport, or a combined 20-minute domestic flight to Dharavandhoo and a 35-minute speedboat ride to the resort.
Tucked away between the Raa and Baa Atolls, the hotel provides an exhaustive experience, so much so, that customers may never want to leave the hotel! Each villa has a disco ball perched above the soaking bathtub, so host a mini party or enjoy the lagoon, ocean or beach all to yourself with your private lounge deck. Sate the foodie in you and relish fresh Maldivian cuisine at their Guduguda restaurant which boasts of dishes made out of freshly picked sea food and vegetables from the local in-house farm. If you feel like swaying to some reggae beats then head over to the Bbq Shak, where grilled meats are served with a side of homemade sauces. If you are feeling boozy then hit up the Todis Bar which serves special cocktails made out of Toddy. Enjoy the Maldivian sunset with a side of cocktails and tropical juices at Beru Bar.
If you are feeling a little adventurous, The Standard has just the thing for you. Enjoy snorkelling and diving excursions in the pristine blue waters. If you would rather enjoy on dry land then the hotel has you covered, with specially curated cultural experiences you can revel in indigenous basket weaving, a moonlight cinema beneath the stars or join one of their legendary pool parties at the beachside infinity pool. Get ready for ultimate relaxation at The Standard Spa, an indoor hydrotherapy playground complete with a contemporary communal hammam, aroma cypress steam room and contrast shower experience.
The opening of The Standard in Maldives marks the American hotel chain’s first ever property in Asia. Bookings at the hotel are now available at special opening rates from $395 per night, which includes overnight accommodation in one of the private villas along with buffet breakfast in their all-day dining restaurant.
