Best Western opened its first spa hotel in Maldives as it expands its brand across Asia and the Middle East.

The Best Western Madoogali Resort and Spa is located on its own island, North Ari Atoll, 48 miles west of the Maldives’ capital of Male. The hotel features 56 palm-thatched chalets.

“The Maldives falls into the elite club of the world's top 10 most desirable destinations and it is a great thrill for Best Western to finally enter this highly attractive market,” said Glenn de Souza, Best Western International's Vice President Operations Asia.

The hotel also offers a restaurant, a dive center and numerous water sport activities, including windsurfing, canoeing, kayaking, water-skiing, catamarans and pedalòs.
