Welcome to the Maison Cheval Blanc Randheli by LVMH
After much hard work 365Playground is excited to announce the newly opened Maldivian resort Maison Cheval Blanc Randheli, operated by Louis Vuitton Möet Hennessy Hotel Management. We were thrilled to have been a part of this stunning project, and would like to thank LVMH Hotel Management and our partners Berthold & Kotthoff Associates for this wonderful opportunity.
The Maison Cheval Blanc Randheli is second to open under the Cheval Blanc hospitality brand, after Courcheval in France.
Each villa is designed by renowned Belgian designer Jean-Michel Gathy (a talent with such high profile names as Shangri-La, St. Regis, Armani, Mandarin Oriental and One&Only behind him), embodying his contemporary vision of the Maldives. Gathy has combined uniquely designed spaces by melding local traditions with the finest materials in order to create this stunning modern structure that remains in tune with its natural surroundings. With vast private swimming pools in each villa as well as private white sand beaches, guests enjoy seclusion and intimacy within their own space, while enjoying the stunning scenery of paradise. With dining outlets conceptualized by much-lauded 3-Michelin star chef Yannick Alleno, guests can expect their culinary expectations to be far exceeded.
The Maison’s specialized “Alchemist” team will design genuinely memorable experiences to fulfill every guest’s desire — from the spur-of-the-moment dinner on a dhoni to an unforgettable expedition for your children.
Enjoy absolute indulgence at the spa by Guerlain, the first of its kind. Look to your surroundings to experience the works of artist, Vincent Beurin. As described by the Telegraph,
“What raises the hotel above the ordinarily glorious is a substantial body of work it has commissioned from the French artist Vincent Beaurin. Asked to produce a work – a soaring copper arch – to mark the entrance to the property, as well as a series of pieces to hang one apiece in each of the 45 villas, his thoughts turned to the landscape…”
Inspired from the stunning island landscape he created a series of raised rounds, 11 inches in diameter, raised away from the wall, following the rise of the island from the ocean.
The Maison Cheval Blanc is, as the Telegraph simply states, “…so irresistibly lovely.”
