What inspired the Westin Maldives Miriandhoo Resort's design

The Westin Maldives Miriandhoo Resort is scheduled to open this October. Developed by Belluna Co. Ltd, Japan and Asia Capital PLC, Sri Lanka, the property will be located on a coral island in the Baa Atoll, a designated UNESCO Biosphere Reserve site.

When it opens, the resort will have 70 villas and suites, 41 on island and 29 over the water. The overwater suites will be built on stilts, and will have an area of almost 200 square meters (2,153 square feet) each.

The design of the property involved Milan-based Peia Associati, which drew design inspiration from the ocean, ensuring environmental sustainability.
