Nestled on a private island in Noonu Atoll, situated in the northern part of the Maldives, M?venpick Resort Kuredhivaru Maldives promises serene seclusion and tropical tranquility after it opening in November 2018. Taking inspiration from the Maldives' spectacular natural scenery, MOTIV has designed a masterpiece that weaves seamlessly into the island environment, blurring the boundaries between innovative design, Maldivian heritage and Mother Nature. Organic shapes for the roofs in villas and restaurants make the structure blend better with environment. Interiors were dictated by ergonomy, to give to the guest comfort to stay close to nature, nature is the biggest luxury in Maldives and architecture should just make it more prominent. In terms of natural materials, coconut wood has been used for the furniture, structural elements of salas and the interior mosaics were finished with hand made square shape coconut tips creating a warm and enchanting environment indoors. The resort's main restaurant, ONU Marche, is built entirely from bamboo with a wide open roof, including intricate geometrical shapes.
