– Hans R Jenni

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

The mixed-use resort development, which is part of a global expansion plan by GHM, will be located on a coral island and will have a Maldivian aesthetic to its architecture by Group X and interiors by URBNarc.

It will feature 63 island-based villas and 36 overwater villas, with all units offered as residences for sale, and a spa with eight overwater treatment rooms.

There will also be a beach club, a bar, a restaurant, a 150m (492ft)-long central pool, sports courts and water sports facilities.

Hans R Jenni, GHM’s co-founder and president, said: "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."
