Escape To A Luxurious Sanctuary In The Maldives

The second Maison of the LVMH Hotel Management Group only has 46 villas within the property, all ready to welcome you to an intimate stay.

This is an excerpt from Lifestyle Asia’s December 2023-January 2024 Issue.

Cheval Blanc Randheli is located right where they want to be. Just 40 minutes north of Malé on the unspoiled terrain of Noonu Atoll, the private resort also stands on a stunning part of the Indian Ocean.

Nature Takes Center Stage

A quick look around the property will inform you a lot about luxury hotel designer Jean-Michel Gathy’s work. Refined, detailed, and relaxing, the villas were designed with calmness and pleasure in mind.

The decorations on the wall practically sing the songs of a lush tropical jungle. The same way the windows enhance the sounds of the waves in villas located on both terrains.

Guests can look forward to having one or two bedrooms, a large living room, double dressing rooms, a bathroom with both indoor and outdoor showers. There’s also a 12.5-meter infinity pool with an adjacent pergola for dining.

Each piece of furniture is tailor-made to give you a unique residential experience by nature. Local textures like teak, rattan, and coconut are given a sleek appearance through contemporary details and a subtle color palette, accented with bright pops of neon.

The walls are framed with contemporary artwork from French artist Vincent Beaurin. Wooden pivoting doors offer to welcome you to paradise.
