La Vie Hotels & Resorts, a leading independent hotel management company in the Asia Pacific region, has officially announced the launch of its new lifestyle brand, NOOE, along with its first resort in the Maldives. NOOE aims to be a place where guests can experience great things, with lively lobbies, local-favorite restaurants, day-club style pools, and gyms that inspire both work and relaxation. The resort features studios, suites, bungalows, and villas, all designed with balance in mind to promote creativity, rest, and relaxation.
The NOOE Maldives Kunaavashi resort spans 3 hectares, with 72 guest bungalows and villas, 39 of which are located over water. The overwater villas offer a romantic and holistic escape with private plunge pools, two stories, large decks, and uninterrupted views of the Vaavu Atoll. The resort is located just one hour from Male city and international airport by speed boat or 25 minutes by seaplane.
The resort boasts six Food and Beverage outlets, a Dive & Watersports Centre, kǔlh•un’ (Play) Kids Club, Boutique Shop and Th•āri by Mandara Spa, offering three private treatment rooms with a range of curated treatment options.
At NOOE, F&B is at its heart; it’s where culture, history and the ritual of food preparation and service encourage connection with artisans of local culinary delights. NOOE Maldives Kunaavashi has been carefully designed to deliver. From all-day dining restaurant Ìrǔ (Sun) providing themed buffets and live action stations, to Japanese inspired dining at w•āsho’ku, featuring a custom built teppanyaki grill and showcasing combinations of traditional and modern interpretations of Japanese cuisine, NOOE Maldives Kunaavashi will offer the ultimate sensory experience.

The resort’s coffee shop, mõ•odhǔ (Sea), offers guests a choice between selections of decadent and holistic treats to go, which path will you choose?
