26 August 2015 â€“ After only being open a short time the stunning Finolhu Villas by Club Med in the Maldives have scooped an international design award winning best Beach Hotel design in the International Hotel and Property Awards 2015.
Located on the private, protected Indian Ocean Island of Gasfinolhu, Finolhu Villlas by Club Med offer an exclusive eco-chic paradise for couples. Surrounded by crystal clear waters and white sand beaches, the 52 Villas have been built to the highest ecological standards, including the resort being entirely powered by solar energy with its 4,000 solar panels.
Sitting on stilts or on the beach, each Villa has its own terrace and private pool in an exquisite combination of elegance, nature and modern design. The island setting includes a welcome lounge, gourmet restaurant and magnificent pool-side bar.
Club Med South Asia Pacific CEO, Heidi Kunkel says,â€œNo effort has been spared in ensuring the Villas represent the ultimate destination in the Maldives. To achieve that, our designers created a unique blend of refinement, exclusivity and eco-friendly design."
The Villas boast a modern and chic design combining ocean blue, green and orange colours that blend in with the natural surroundings, highlighting the harmonisation of nature and luxury.
Finolhu Villas were designed together by architect Yuji Yamazaki and interior designer Meriem Hall. A French architect and interior designer, Meriem has more than 20 years of international industry experience designing luxury hotels, resorts, residences and lifestyle collections from concept to completion.
