Onyx Hospitality Group, Thailand's leading hotel management company has been appointed by the Maldives Tourism Development Corporation Plc (MTDC) to manage the Herathera Island Resort from December 1, 2010.
Set on Addu, the southern-most atoll in the Maldives, approximately 480km south of the capital Male, the 273-villa resort features three natural lagoons, a turtle hatchery and a unique 4 km beach, the longest of any resort within the archipelago.
Recreational facilities at Herathera Island Resort include three swimming pools, a range of restaurants and bars, a spa and dive centre. It is a 20-minute speedboat ride from Gan International Airport.
During the course of 2011, the resort will undergo significant upgrades including enhancements to the beach and villas as well as the addition of numerous sports and children's facilities.
The resort will then be re-launched as an Amari, the centrepiece brand of the ONYX portfolio and be positioned as a leading destination in the Maldives for activity and family holidays.
"We are thrilled that our first international management agreement is in such a renowned tourist destination as the Maldives," said Peter Henley, Chief Executive Officer of ONYX Hospitality Group.
