Luxury Resort Spa, Maldives

Scope of Work: Market Research & Feasibility


Project Overview: A leading luxury resort in a well-established luxury resort market with a pre-determined space available for a spa and fitness facility in the Maldives. A decrease in average room rates and an average length of stay, along with continually increasing competition, make it essential to tailor wellness facilities accordingly, creating unique points of differentiation for the resort.


Horwath HTL Solution: Proposed a modern luxury spa facility that would include a versatile thermal area and an outdoor functional fitness park. To gain competitive advantage, we recommended developing an extensive heat and thermal circuit that includes an Aquatonic pool, anticipating more guests from China. The facility offering adds incremental value to the resort, increasing on-property spending, and extending visitors’ average length of stay.


Project Status: The project is currently in planning and is scheduled to open in 2019.
