Post The Westin Maldives Miriandhoo Resort - Opening Moved up to Oct 2018

Can't find the new properties thread again so started a separate thread for this new Maldvies Resort.

I'm guessing it will be a Cat 6 or 7.

Is this the thread you're looking for? SPG - Master List of New Hotels and Disposals

If you're using it frequently, might I suggest subscribing to the thread.

According to the links below, this 45-million-dollar resort will have 70 villas. Construction has allegedly started and the opening is mentioned as 2018 instead of the February 2019 date listed on Starwood's website... but with the Maldivian penchant for delays, we shall see what happens out there.

If it involves villa's, I'm guessing that it will be double the usual reward rate for rooms like in Bora Bora; keeping in mind that the SPG program will probably be radically different if it exists at all by the time this property opens.

Yep - I thought that too.
Surprised to have the opening date brought forward with so little info.
There have been small changes over the last few weeks so things are moving, but these have mainly been to room information.

Still can't book a stay, or find any clear info... for someplace that is 60 days away from opening I'm really surprised...

Cash rates now available to book from 1-Dec onwards. No points rates loaded though. This happened a few days ago.

Room details are more apparent but photos still missing. Puts 1st October opening date sceptical in my mind.

Does anyone know if it's likely that there will be discounted points redemptions in the first few months after opening, until reputation and occupancy increases?

Here's an article that provides a little bit of information. "Resort will feature 70 villas and suites, 41 on island and 29 overwaters."

It looks like award rates are now available. I searched for 7 nights in May 2019 and saw availability for an Island Villa for 60,000 points per night. Thinking of switching a reservation from W Maldives to here if they allow overwater villas at 85,000 per night.
