Located in Gaafu Alifu Atoll, AccorHotels’ Mercure Maldives Kooddoo is all set to welcome savvy travellers to the island renowned for its lush greenery and pristine beaches. Conveniently situated adjacent to Kooddoo domestic airport, the hotel is the first beachfront property directly accessible via a 55-minute flight from Male without the need for a speedboat journey.

Patrick Basset, Chief Operating Officer for AccorHotels, Upper Southeast and Northeast Asia said, “We are delighted to offer one of the best value full-service hotels in the south of Maldives at a time when airlift and inbound markets are diversifying for properties outside of the luxury segment.”

The property boasts 68 stylish and well-appointed villas comprising 43 Over Water Villas and 25 Beach Villas. 20 of those villas feature a private 3x6 meter swimming pool. The accommodation highlight is the best-in-class Sunset Over Water Pool Villas. Attesting to the Mercure brand promise of an authentic experience, vivid colours and decorative motifs are depicted throughout the hotel with added touches of warm textures and design to create a haven of peace with a local character.

The hotel offers guests several attractive dining options: the all-day-dining Alita Restaurant serves Pan-Asian à la carte cuisine and themed buffets with both indoor and outdoor seating; Vistas, an over-the-water restaurant and lounge, serves tapas, snacks and handcrafted cocktails; and Alita Pool Bar offers cocktails and light bites over-looking the sunset sky.

In addition, guests can take full advantage of the location with a five-star PADI Dive & Water Sports Centre offering courses and adventures to the best dive sites of the atoll for sharks and pelagic encounters, easily reachable by a 10 minute-boat ride from the hotel; water sports include snorkelling, sailing, kayaking, windsurfing, catamarans, jet skis, and fun tubes; a 50-metre lagoon-side swimming pool, tennis court and Kids’ Club; local island daytrips and sunset fishing excursions; tennis and badminton courts; and fully equipped fitness facilities.

Scott Bowen, General Manager, Mercure Maldives Kooddoo says, “We are excited to introduce the Mercure brand to the Maldives. Mercure Kooddoo offers our guests an authentic and friendly experience that allows them to discover the diversity of the island’s sights, sounds, and scenes with Maldivian hospitality. We look forward to welcoming travellers who seek high level of comfort, service and quality synonymous to the Mercure brand combined with the Maldivian culture and the spirit of travel.”

Guests can enjoy a weekend escape at Mercure Maldives Kooddoo from USD 220+++ per night (normally USD 300+++) with breakfast for 2 at a Beach Villa from now till October 30, 2017.
