New Maldives Resorts opening in 2022

In 2022, the Maldvies will welcome twelve new resorts to their ever-expanding portfolio. If you're looking to holiday in the Maldives, it is a sublime combination of sea, sand, sun and a sprinkle of luxury. Turquoise lagoons, powder-white sand and an abundance of sealife which may sometimes include the odd resident turtle or octopus (but do remember trigger fish do bite). You can do as much or as little as you want: spend all day in the sea snorkelling, go diving in some breathtaking reefs or simply have a lazy day on a sunbed to beat the jet lag and then watch the sun go down with a glass of something fizzy.


The Maldvies has moved with the times too offering the ultimate instagram (or TikTok) worthy experiences - from over-water spas to underwater restaurants.


Here is our round-up of all the new Maldives resorts - luxury and boutique that are set to open this year. But, if we've missed a resort opening, then please do get in touch with us.
