Paradise awaits as travelers eye their next getaway to the Maldives, which has recently reopened its borders for international travel—sans COVID-19 tests, additional fees, or new visa requirements. One of the hospitality giants poised to receive guests is Marriott International, whose brands like W Hotels, JW Marriott, and The Westin have properties on the scenic atolls.
Guest can expect to stay at The St. Regis Maldives Vommuli Resort, W Maldives, Sheraton Maldives Full Moon Resort & Spa, and JW Marriott Maldives Resort & Spa from October 1 onwards, and The Westin Maldives Miriandhoo Resort starting November 1.
With more than 1,000 islands spread across 26 atolls, the island nation boasts a unique “one-island-one-resort” concept, which allows for social distancing to be maintained. To reassure guests, the five Marriott resorts will upkeep high standards of cleanliness as well as hygiene protocols.
Located amid lush rainforest and white-sand beaches on a private isle. The St. Regis Maldives Vommuli Resort is a romantic hideaway that’s perfect for couples and honeymooners. Perks now include welcome amenities, a complimentary bottle of champagne, a $100 food and beverage credit per room per day, as well as one-time access to the Blue Hole Hydrotherapy Pool Experience.
Meanwhile, adventure seekers and lovers of marine life can check in at JW Marriott Maldives Resort & Spa and explore the Indian Ocean alongside the resort’s PADI team. The highlight is a “Let’s Get Wet” package, inclusive of daily buffet breakfast, complimentary use of non-motorized water sports equipment, as well as a 15-minute Sea Bob experience, a 45-minute Snorkel lesson, and a Discover Scuba Diving experience.
Families will have the time of their lives at Sheraton Maldives Full Moon Resort & Spa with the “Exploring Paradise” package. The four-night stay comes with plenty of activities for both the young and old, including a sandbank picnic with barbecue lunch, a Family Spa Day with a 50-minute couple spa treatment, and coral planting.
Marriott Bonvoy members who book direct or via the Marriott Bonvoy app before 31 December 2020 can enjoy up to 20 percent off rooms and suites for stays through 30 June 2021.
