An intimate and contemporary haven.
Cheval Blanc Randheli opened in The Maldives in November 2013 as LVMH Hotel Management’s second Cheval Blanc Maison.
On the unspoiled Noonu Atoll, 40-minutes north of Malé, the 45-villa Maison complements the group’s alpine property, Cheval Blanc Courchevel, by offering the same stylish design and relaxed, friendly atmosphere, but in the serene setting of the Maldivian archipelago.
Architecture & Design
At Cheval Blanc Randheli
Elegant, refined and designed for stylish is land barefoot living, Cheval Blanc Randheli is born from a creative collaboration with celebrated architect Jean- Michel Gathy. The Maison was conceived in synergy with the island’s natural surroundings, and striking architecture naturally blends with the island’s landscape, vegetation and lagoon views. Great attention has been given to the privacy of guests and ensuring a feeling of space. This is particularly reflected in the elegant design of each villa; lofty cathedral-style ceilings are framed by seven-metre-high hand- crafted doors that create a strong sense of openness or can be closed to give a warm and cosy atmosphere. The flow of the resort is very residential, with an abundance of settings designed for guests to use as per their disposition–for relaxation, for contemplation, for invigoration, for conversation or simply to enjoy a stunning view. The villas are furnished with materials from the Indian Ocean–teak, rattan, bamboo, thatch and coconut shell. This is in turn enhanced by a stylish colour palette of white, taupe and oyster grey with splashes of pop yellow and green as well as bespoke design elements and a residential style medley of art work throughout. A collection of 46 sculptural colour “spots” by artist Vincent Beaurin also makes each villa truly individual.
There are 14 Garden Water Villas (8 one and 6 two-bedroom villas from 240 to 350 sqm), unique to the Maldives, that combine both over waters tilt architecture with a private tropical garden space. 15 Water Villas (240 sqm one-bedroom villas) are perched over the crystalline sea,whilst the 15 Island Villas (9 one and 5 two-bedroom villas from 240 to 300 sqm), ideal for families, are hidden amidst mature gardens and open onto their own private beach.
All have a large living room, adjoining powder room, spacious bedrooms-which draw the eye out to the stunning scenery-double dressing rooms and light-filled bathrooms within and outdoor showers. Outdoors, all feature a 12.5 m private infinity pool and dining pergola or pavilion, plus a private beach, spacious over water decks or dedicated gardens.
