Following its groundbreaking London debut, Standard International, the parent company of The Standard, announces the opening of The Standard, Huruvalhi Maldives. The resort is a short sea plane ride away from Male, nestled between the Raa and Baa Atolls, on a naturally protected island.
The resort, featuring 115 private villas, marks the brand’s first property in Asia. The Standard, Maldives is the company’s next destination within its extensive global pipeline, which includes Milan, Paris, Lisbon, Bordeaux, Mexico City, Jakarta, Ko Samui, Phuket, Hua Hin and Chicago, to name a few.
“It is such a treat within the same year to show the world what The Standard can be in on one of the busiest places and one of the most tranquil places on the planet,” said Amar Lalvani, CEO of Standard International. “What makes me so proud is that despite the vast difference in setting, the culture of both are unmistakably Standard.”
While the Maldives has traditionally been a couple’s destination, as always, The Standard has approached the development with a fresh set of eyes. The resort offers an unmatched combination of tranquility, social life and vibrant cultural programming that welcomes groups of friends or singles looking to meet others or just reset and recharge in paradise.
The lobby is airy and intimate, and accessible 24-hours a day. Each of the 115 villas features its own private lounge deck and plunge pool, and the six unique culinary offerings range from a beach front BBQ shack serving freshly caught seafood, to our take on Maldivian cuisine that showcases ingredients sourced directly from our island farm.
The resort offers guided diving snorkeling through our naturally protected house reef to sunset boat excursions to uninhabited islands and undiscovered reefs, as well as night fishing and private destination dining. The Standard Spa offers a communal hammam, aroma steam room, daily yoga, personal training and nine private treatment rooms.
No Standard experience would be complete without nightlife, from tribal beats at a beach bonfire to a glass bottom nightclub. And a disco ball above your bath tub, for your own private party.
