SAii Lagoon Maldives will open as part of Curio Collection by Hilton come 2019, managed by S Hotels & Resorts under a franchise agreement between Hilton and Singha Estate.
The resort will be located in Emboodhoo Lagoon and a 15-minute boat ride from Velena International Airport. The first and largest integrated tourist destination in the Maldives, Crossroads, is a stroll across a footbridge away.
The 198-key modern resort will offer a mix of deluxe rooms, beach villas and overwater villas.
Facilities include the The Hub, where guests have several options for relaxation. They can pick out their own treats from the Snack Box, which offers a complimentary collection of healthy, family-friendly refreshments, while the Aroma Lab will allow guests to create their very own bathroom amenities – selecting a base product, such as shampoo, shower gel or body lotion, and pairing it with one of the Lab’s scents.
The spread of in-house dining options at SAii Lagoon Maldives extends from a daily breakfast at Café del Mar, to gourmet coffees, specialty teas and meals on-the-go at the casual resort café, bean/Co. Guests will have a choice of stylish and uniquely distinctive themed eateries serving a combination of healthy fare, Mediterranean classics, fresh seafood and Thai-inspired creations.
