For travellers who seek the finest that the world has to offer

SO/ Maldives set to welcome guests from November

The avant-garde SO/ Maldives island resort features bespoke beachfront and over-water villas with panoramic views of Emboodhoo Lagoon, fine dining venues, a wellness centre, and an eclectic entertainment program. 

SO/ Maldives is the third hotel to pop up within the Crossroads Maldives integrated leisure development. With three resorts, a 30-berth quay, luxurious hotels, world-class dining, leisure, retail and entertainment – all seamlessly blended with tropical scenery – Crossroads Maldives is a lifestyle experience that captures the essence of the Maldives. The ultra-fashionable SO/ Hotels & Resorts brand is now being introduced to the Maldives for the very first time, and the resort will form part of the Ennismore Collection, a curated global collective of lifestyle brands.

Accommodation at SO/Maldives

SO/ Maldives is a five-star contemporary island resort with sartorial leanings. Located a 15-minute speedboat ride from Malé International Airport, this private island in the idyllic archipelago provides a home-away-from-home for a new generation of modern adventurers. The concept of the resort is rooted in fashion and art, and the 80 beachfront and over-water open-plan villas showcase interior design that takes style cues from the heavenly locale. Each abode has a private pool and deck, and the villas are fitted with solar panels that contribute to the sustainable operation of this swish new establishment. A selection of family beach pool villas also include private capsules for kids, and the stunning two-level, three-bedroom Ocean Water Pool Atelier will set the stage for life’s special occasions.
