New hotels in the Maldives opening in 2021 – which one to choose?

New hotels in the Maldives, although limited in their appearance by the number of islands, still steadily appear on the map and in search engine databases. And this is an interesting topic: what else will surprise you? Or maybe they finally built hotels with a budget of up to a hundred thousand, but with all the bounty and service to boot? Or maybe you can get big discounts?

While I was collecting this fresh selection of new products, I really wanted to visit the Maldives … I hope you have the same aftertaste, and your dream hotel is on the list!

Why should you go to a new hotel?

New hotels in the Maldives open every year. I noticed that two or three years ago the resorts grew by leaps and bounds. In 2020-2021, this diversity is no longer there. But still, there are determined hoteliers, and therefore it is interesting to study their contribution to the happiness of tourists!

The advantages of new resorts are obvious:

5* The Ritz-Carlton Maldives

The third resort hotel on the Fari Islands – Capella Maldives – will open its doors only in 2023. Let's wait and be sure to add it to the future list🙂

5* Le Méridien Maldives Resort & Spa

He appeared to the world on September 1, 2021 and set a price tag THREE times cheaper than previous hotels. So, new 5-star hotels in the Maldives can be both impossibly expensive and quite adequate. Exploring what to expect inside.

At least the food Le Meridien is not worse. Yes, the variety is not impressive even without mangoes for breakfast, but many people note the quality and taste in 6 local restaurants. The cabins are nice and spacious, but note that the overwater villas are limited to 2 people (what about families?) and the standard villas, at the base rate, don't have a pool. This is a frequent minus from reviews, as is the colorful but distant house reef. The island itself is large, green and shady – there are 141 villas on it. There is a nice kids club with a Russian-speaking nanny.

Concept: breakfast, half and full board, all inclusive
Transfer: 45 minutes per by seaplane for $420 per person
Price per night: from 70,000 rubles in season, from 45,000 rubles in off-season

5* Kuda Villingili Maldives Resort

5* Siyam World

5* Cora Cora Maldives

4* Cocogiri Island Resort

A good 4-star hotel for a reasonable price – when you want to relax in the Maldives and not overpay for a butler, a brand and ten restaurants. Cocorigi is very basic and no frills, but the views are beautiful, the ocean is blue and the sand is white.

A small and quiet island with 40 villas of three types: a small beach villa of 49 sq.m, a water villa of 52 sq.m and a water villa with a jacuzzi. Accommodates up to 3 people. There are 2 restaurants on site – and there is an all-inclusive option. You can keep yourself busy at the diving center (the house reef is decent) or at the spa. On one side of the island the beach is sandy, on the other side there are corals. Currently only available for booking as part of a tour.

Concept: breakfast, half and full board, all inclusive
Transfer: 60 minutes by speedboat for $220 per person or 18 minutes by seaplane
