Singapore-based The Residence by Cenizaro Hotels & Resorts has announced that its new 173 only-villa resort – The Residence Maldives at Dhigurah – is now open. The Residence Maldives at Dhigurah in the Gaafu Alifu Atoll is connected to its other property – The Residence Maldives at Falhumaafushi – via a bridge and is at a walking distance. Wendy Mok, Director, Marketing for Asia Pacific, The Residence Maldives & The Residence Bintan, says, “The new property has 173 villas with a private pool in every villa. It is a very exclusive property. We always tell our agent partners to suggest their clients to come for three or four or five nights. And we even see the market going beyond five nights sometimes from India. We are looking at attracting honeymooners, families, and corporates of small groups like 10-20 people. We aren’t equipped for big weddings but it will be a perfect destination for family events like anniversaries, birthdays, etc.”
The Residence is promoted by Outbound Konnections in India. The Residence Maldives at Dhigurah is an all-inclusive resort meaning guests have access to all six restaurants and six bars across both Dhigurah and Falhumaafushi, creating a two-island inclusive experience. Paddle boarding, Kayaking, windsurfing and other non-motorised sports are also included, as well as access to the spa, fitness centre and Turtle Kids Club.
