FIRST LOOK: Kagi Maldives Spa Island
Located at the northern end of Male’ atoll, Kagi Maldives is the newest addition to Crown and Champa’s expansive resort portfolio, one of the leading local hotel chains in the country. Within close proximity to the capital city and Velana International Airport, guests can choose between a 60-minute scenic speedboat ride or a quick 15-minute seaplane transfer to reach the island.
Designed by the New York based architectural firm Yuji Yamazaki Architecture PLLC, well known for their refreshing and radical approach from conceptualization to execution, Kagi Maldives embraces the tropical, new-age contemporary designs which they have already infused to the existing architectural palette in the Maldives.
Featuring a total of just 50 villas with 03 different room categories, they all carry tones of luxurious contemporary design with a flare of Maldivian elements blended in seamlessly. Each villa comes with its very own infinity pool and a bathroom that spans across both indoor and outdoor spaces equipped with rainfall showers and deep tubs that wholeheartedly embrace absolute indulgence!
When it comes to dining, Kagi offers a wide range of thrilling culinary experiences that would take you on unexpected sensory journeys. From the familiar favorites to cuisines inspired from the geographical “ring of fire”, guests at Kagi can travel through flavors of South East Asia to South America and Oceania.
Putting a real focus on rejuvenation and well-being, Baani Spa takes spa experiences to the next level. Inspired by the “epicurean lifestyle philosophy” which embodies the fundamentals of nature, sound, nutrition, bodywork, beauty, mindfulness and movement, the spa is set within a 1,500 square meter purpose-built wellness hub located at the center of the island.
As originality and authenticity is becoming de rigueur, we are now seeing more and more properties that are not only stunning, but carry distinct personalities, character and offers unique experiences rather than just simple hotel stays. Kagi Maldives is a perfect example of a place that infuses comfort and luxury with a healthy injection of personality!
