The ceremony was followed by an entertainment programme by international artist Nicole Scherzinger of The Pussycat Dolls fame.
Some of the features at this comfortable 5-star resort include, 11 bar and restaurant choices, outdoor tennis courts, a poolside snack bar and a 20 room spa & wellness centre. With the new launching, the Spa has enhanced its offering to include additional traditional Chinese medicine and Maldivian treatments.
