Alila Kothaifaru Maldives - REVIEW - MASTER THREAD

This one has flown under the radar a bit, but it just popped up on the Hyatt Development page. Alila Villas Maldives - on the island of Kothaifaru in the Maldives - is under construction with a projected October 2020 opening date.

Definitely should be a very exciting and luxurious project and nice to continue to see Hyatt's Luxury portfolio grow.

I saw this yesterday! Fun fact: the Park Hyatt Maldives was a takeover of an Alila property, so it’s nice to see Alila return to the Maldives under Hyatt.

Hopefully this won't introduce a new category for redemption.

There is a new category already, Category 8. It is only used by some SLH properties so far.

There are "tons" of projects on the development page. Many never materialize. I'd await any sort of official announcement before putting out hopes

I asked about this on a call a couple weeks ago and it's still in the pipeline with a 2022 to 2023 projected opening date.

That's quite the delay if, in January, they were projecting an October opening date (of that same year)!

Comparing any project vs. BER is setting the bar very, very low indeed

This one looks a lot more complete than I expected - attaching pictures from this site below. Might not be too far from opening, if this is the case.

Oh nice, I didn't know they were planning an Alila property in Maldives.
Hopefully this property will open soon in 2022.

They’re also hiring on Hyatt’s careers page! If people are being brought on board, then we’re on the tail end of development and approaching opening.
