Maldvies Health and Wellness Project

Luxury Wellness Retreat, Maldives

Key Service: Health & Wellness
Location: Maldives
Product: Market Research and Feasibility, Concept Development
Office: Health & Wellness


The owner is from a manufacturing and prefabricated construction background, and wishes to develop a hospitality business line focused on health and wellness, starting with a development in the Maldives on a 20-hectare private island. The owner engaged Horwath HTL Health & Wellness to conduct thorough market research and competitive benchmarking to evaluate the feasibility of developing a dedicated wellness retreat with a distinctive concept strategy, that would become the first fully programming wellness resort in the Maldives.


Given the seclusion and peacefulness of the island site, Horwath HTL Health & Wellness recommended developing a luxury wellness retreat focused on enhancing mindfulness by offering a holistic, alternative and result-driven approach to wellness rooted in principles of inner balance and harmony with oneself and the environment. The proposed concept strategy consisted of a range of on-land and over-water accommodation units to target different types of guests, a selection of healthy food and beverage outlets supplied by the on-site organic garden, a wellness center offering mind, energy and sound therapies along with oriental healing, spa treatments and heat and water experiences, fitness, mind & body facilities, as well as a range of educational, cultural and conservation activities. The aim of this development strategy was to achieve a unique point of differentiation and attraction with a concept that is distinct from the local competition and entirely true to the location.


The project is currently in the planning stage of the development, and is anticipated to be open and operational by 2023.
