In 2019, luxury hotel chain Seaside Collection, successfully acquired Finolhu, a luxury island resort in the Baa Atoll of the Maldives. Finolhu is the hotel chain’s eleventh boutique property and it’s first in the Maldives.
Opened in 2016, Finolhu is one of the best beach resorts in Baa Atoll and consists of four islands with long beaches. The resort has 125 villas - 91 over-water and 34 beachfront with more than half featuring a private pool.
The resort offers four unique restaurants, a poolside bar, swimming pool, tennis, the Wellness Spa, gym, Kids’ Club and a wide range of motorized and non-motorised water sports options with an on-site facility of a PADI dive centre.
“Environmental protection is an important theme at the Seaside Collection and is something we have won awards for. Finolhu is largely self-sufficient and works closely with marine biologists and environmental experts, so it was a good fit for us," says Gregor Gerlach, CEO and Managing Partner.
