The Cheval Blanc in Courchevel, LVMH group’s ultra-luxury hotel in the French Alpes is now recognised as one of the most renowned palaces in France. Since its opening in 2006, the group’s wish is clearly to expand and develop its hospitality business. After having acquired a 5 star hotel in Saint Barth, its new hotel called the Cheval Blanc Randheli opened its doors for the first time end 2013 in the Maldives.
Le Cheval Blanc Randheli
Le Cheval Blanc Randheli welcomed its first guests in November 2013 on the island of Randheli in Noonu Atoll. This hotel aims to provide its guests with a comfortable and calm environment whilst benefitting from a wide range of exclusive services.
Le Cheval Blanc Randheli is only accessible via seaplane. Guests will be welcome in 46 luxury villas, each equipped with a terrace and a private swimming pool. The design of the villas was done by Jean-Michel Gathy. The architect used noble materials to combine Maldivian traditions and a touch of modernity.
The different spaces designed by the architect are adjustable thanks to 7 metre high doorways. This allows guests to enjoy a life style adapted to the time of day and the guest’s wishes.
The team of the Cheval Blanc Randheli makes it a point to help guests throughout their stay with a wide range of services. A personal butler is available in each villa, ensuring the well-being and comfort of each guest with varying attentions.
Guests have the opportunity to enjoy the three bars and five restaurants of the hotel. Just like in the Cheval Blanc in Courchevel, the menu was prepared by the Michelin star chef Yannick Alléno. An exclusive service spa is also available on another island. Furthermore, the hotel provides a form of day care where children will enjoy different activities dedicated to them.
LVMH continues to expand its business and has many projects including the renovation of the Samaritaine building in Paris which should include a new hotel for LVMH.
