The Residence Maldives at Dhigurah, Cenizaro Hotels & Resorts’ second property in the Maldives, is now welcoming its first guests. Set on Gaafu Alifu Atoll, the property is adjacent to Cenizaro’s first property, the Residence Maldives at Falhumaafushi.

The two resorts are connected by a bridge – enabling guests to travel between the two with ease – and forming one of the largest resort offerings in the Maldives. The properties in Gaafu Alifu Atoll are found in the south of the Maldives and can be accessed by both seaplane and domestic flights.

The new opening comes with a special offer, giving guests 40 per cent off its Best Available Rates. Additional perks of the offer include complimentary domestic flight and speedboat transfers and complimentary upgrade to the Standard All-Inclusive meal plan.

All of Dhigurah’s 173 spacious beach and water villas overlook the dappled turquoise waters of the ocean and each one has its own private pool. Rooms are designed with plenty of natural light and crafted using the finest local materials, blending the beauty of traditional Maldivian architecture with contemporary flair.

Aimed at families, Dhigurah introduces 12 new two-bedroom beach and water pool villas, with more on-land options, perfect for younger children. Dining options include all-day dining at the Dining Room, the resort’s beachfront restaurant and Li Bai, the resort’s signature Cantonese restaurant, sister to the celebrated Li Bai in Singapore, serving exquisite classic Chinese dishes.

Surrounded by a beautiful, untouched reef and set on one of the deepest and untouched atolls, with more than 250 species of coral and 1,200 species of marine life including manta rays, dolphins and green turtles, Dhigurah is a must visit for keen snorkelers and divers. The opening takes the Residence by Cenizaro’s hotel portfolio to six – Mauritius, Tunis, Zanzibar, Bintan and the Maldives. For more information, visit www.cenizaro.com/theresidence/maldives-dg.
