“Fresh Picks” features the latest luxury properties admitted into the Kiwi Collection. This week, we take a peek inside Viceroy Maldives, a brand new luxury property opening April 2012.
What: The 61 villas, 32 over the water and 29 on the beach, resemble an inverted Maldivian “dhoni” (a traditional fishing boat) hull, with crisp, calm interiors by Toronto designer Yabu Pushelberg. All have utmost privacy in mind. The crème de la crème? A three-bedroom Royal Villa, the largest of its kind in the Maldives, with a living room of floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the lagoon, 60 square meter plunge pool just steps from the water, dining room, fully stocked bar, and a game room with a champion-sized pool table. It’s also set to have a world-class spa and five dining experiences to choose from.
