Pullman recently unveiled the Pullman Maldives Maamutaa Resort, set amidst 18 hectares of tropical flora and fauna on Gaafu Alif Atoll.

The resort features 122 villas, including two exclusive Aqua Villas showcasing bedrooms submerged beneath the water.

The Royal Suite provides a 'resort within a resort', offering privacy and indulgence with a high degree of personalized services. "We are delighted to be shining the spotlight on the Maldives once again with the launch of our fifth Accor property", said chief operating officer of Accor, Upper Southeast & Northeast Asia and the Maldives, Patrick Basset.

"Pullman Maldives Maamutaa Resort is a stunning addition to the premium segment and we look forward to welcoming global nomads to explore the spectacular marine life of Gaafu Alif Atoll and its surrounding diving sites."

Dining options include the all-day restaurant Mélange, sunken pool bar The Hub, sophisticated evening dining option Saffron Affair, and Souq Oven for Middle Eastern dishes. In addition, Sol Rising offers health café options, whilst Phat Chameleon is one of the regions' first organic vegetarian and vegan restaurants and includes a vegetable and herb garden.

Maamutaa's water temperatures are slightly cooler than those of many other islands, meaning the atoll offers a variety of marine life and underwater flora. According to Pullman, the resort is the only place allowing divers to spot up to 13 species of shark in the water.

The resort also features a 'Fit Trail' island jogging track, as well as nature walks, treasure hunts, and outdoor sports. The Raaveriya Workout experience offers a rigorous callisthenics workout, followed by a run on the beach and a swim in the lagoon.

“With our generous all-inclusive offering, we look forward to welcoming guests to the Pullman Maldives Maamutaa Resort where they can explore the island’s sandy beaches, nature trails and renowned diving sites while enjoying full wellness and culinary journey,” said John Bendsten, general manager of Pullman Maldives Maamutaa Resort John Bendtsen.
