Spend a holiday in the Maldives and let a Majordome or Guardian Angel customize your experience at The Cheval Blanc Randheli.
Having conquered the Alpes with its gitzy Courcheval hotel, LVMH has now set its sights on the Maldives with the opening of its lastest property Cheval Blanc Randheli, which opened on 15 November to much fan fare. Here guests can enjoy tailor-made experiences arranged by their very own Majordome or Guardian Angel.
It's the little details that make the place so special, well that and the seriously luxurious accommodation. Step off the sea plane and into a complimentary jet-lag treatment.
Before guests arrive they will receive a call from the Maison's team of Alchemists in order to understand the families preferences to make sure all guests have good memories to return home with.
The Majordome works with the Alchemists to organise individual activities and experiences throughout your stay. Enjoy adventurous desert island explorations and sail to a private beach with a secret hideaway, where a picnic complete will wait, along with a shady spot under which to get stuck into the book, specially selected for you and tucked into the picnic basket. Children can pretend to be pirates and hunt around the island for treasure and then return for a family BBQ.
Le Carrousel is a club for children between three and 12 years of age and offers activities including children's yoga, island treasure hunts, underwater photo safaris and creating plaster-of-paris footprints in the sand for parents to keep.
The Paddock Club for teenagers offers watersports and snorkelling, stargazing, yoga and Junior Lifesaver courses, where teens can learn first aid and lifesaving skills.
The villas have specially designed linen for children along with mini-furniture, and kid-friendly food and drink menus. There is also a Magic Bedtime Box provided in each villa to help parents put their children to sleep. The box includes pillow mist and massage cream, a bedtime story and glitter dust to bring about sweet dreams – we secretly wish this came for adults too. Children can also have a cuddle with a Cheval Blanc teddy.
