Westin Hotels & Resorts has revealed the opening of the brand’s first hotel in the Republic of Maldives with the opening of The Westin Maldives Miriandhoo Resort.
Developed by Belluna Co. Ltd, Japan and Asia Capital PLC, Sri Lanka, The Westin Maldives Miriandhoo Resort heralds the Westin brand’s wellness positioning in the Maldivian oasis.
“We are thrilled to introduce the Westin brand to the Maldives, strengthening our presence in Asia Pacific,” said Mike Fulkerson, vice president, brand and marketing, Marriott International Asia Pacific.
The Westin Maldives Miriandhoo Resort will have three dining experiences. The Pearl is the resort’s specialty restaurant and will showcase Japanese cuisine with ocean views. The restaurant offers a refined Japanese menu with a focus on seafood and fresh local ingredients.
The all-day dining experience at Island Kitchen will focus on the Westin brand’s Eat Well brand pillar through a balanced menu combining Chinese, Indian and Maldivian fare.
At Hawker, guests can sample Asian street food with a live kitchen and Sunset Bar will have a lounge serving tapas and cocktails.

Each villa is shaped with an eco-friendly double roofing to create the perfect natural ventilation. Outdoor rainforest showers are a distinctive feature. Poised over the sea on stilts and with an area of almost 200 square meters each, the overwater suites are among the largest a resort has to offer in the Baa Atoll region.
