FAM Holding Group has recently unveiled exciting updates and breathtaking renderings of its highly anticipated Al Mahra Maldives resort, a $218 million project set to open its doors in 2025. With construction slated to begin in August 2023, the development is expected to take two years, with the handover scheduled for the second quarter of 2025.
Located on the captivating island of Fonagaadhoo in the Laamu Atoll, the resort shares its name with Faisal Ali Mousa’s 5-year-old daughter, Mahra, symbolizing elegance and strength. The name “Mahra” translates to “stallion” in English, reflecting the resort’s commitment to exuding grace and power. The Maldives property will be sister to the renowned Al Mahra Resort in Ras Al Khaimah, UAE.
Sustainability lies at the core of the Al Mahra Maldives project, even if it means a slight delay in its opening. Faisal Ali Mousa, Chairman of FAM Holding Group, explained, “Due to the unavailability of suitable materials in the Maldives, we will need to source them from external suppliers, resulting in a longer construction timeline. Consequently, the project is estimated to span a duration of two and a half years.”
Aligned with their sustainability focus, Al Mahra Maldives will operate on solar energy generated by FAM Ganz Green Energy, a subsidiary of FAM Holding. Furthermore, the resort will implement an innovative water desalination process that ensures the rejected salty water can be safely returned to the sea without adversely affecting the marine ecosystem.
Accompanying the exciting updates, the release of stunning renderings showcases the resort’s exquisite design and luxurious amenities, captivating the imagination of future guests.
It is important to note that the Al Mahra Maldives project is still in its early stages, with only 5% of units sold to investors thus far, according to Faisal Ali Mousa. However, with the recent reveal of the enchanting renderings, anticipation is growing for this extraordinary addition to the Maldivian hospitality scene.
