Positioned as a family-oriented resort, OZO Maldives will bear all the signatures which define and OZO including enhanced sleep experience, exceptional cultural sites, and a curated destination for the travelers.
60 villas will be located over-water while 140 villas will be located on the beach, with 50 beach villas offering larger family-friendly layouts with pools, to offer flexibility for families and groups of friends traveling together.
The resort interior will feature design elements and experience touch points inspired by a fictitious castaway explorer named Sebastian King III, an artist and amateur sailor who was shipwrecked and lived alone on the island for eight years before allowing himself to be discovered.
Travelers will be able to immerse themselves in the re-interpretation of the legacy left by Sebastian through a series of structures, shelters, and landmarks such as an upturned Dhoni shipwreck hidden within a jungle which doubles as an activity center, educational sundial and weather station, and mangrove discovery walk-way.
Regarding the venture, Douglas Martell, president, Onyx Hospitality Group, noted: “With the opening of Ozo, we look forward to redefining the family-oriented resort experience in the Maldives with a property which combines the best of the three key Ozo brand signatures – sleep, connect and explore.”
