Club Med Finolhu Villas, Maldives
Having visited more than 25 different Maldivian islands over three visits to the region it was hard for Google Photographer, Dan Root to choose his favourite resort this was until he recently shot the first Street View Trusted virtual tour in the Maldives for Club Med.
Located a short boat ride from their sister resort Club Med Kani (scheduled for shooting in 2016) and just 40 minutes by speedboat from Male it’s an architectural masterpiece designed by Yuji Yamazaki, and French interior designer, Meriem Hall. 52 Eco Friendly villas line the beach and stretch into the Indian Ocean. With an overwater restaurant, Spa plus all the regular amenities you’d expect at a luxury 5* resort it really is paradise and we’re delighted to be able to bring you the next best experience to being there.
Club Med were so impressed with our work we helped them create an enhanced tour which the specifically built a mini-site for to accompany their drone footage
An Eco-Tourism Resort
As we all bid to reduce our carbon footprint and go green, Club Med were keen to depict it’s reputation as an Eco-Tourism resort, the solar panels on the walkway not only act as a photo opportunity at night, they also store energy collected from the sunlight during the day to power their villas during the night. A beautiful yet functional addition to the resort added to Google Maps.
With our extensive experience working within the hospitality sector we know that showcasing the pool area is key to attracting travellers and with a beautifully tranquil environment at Club Med Finolhu we spent just that little bit longer to capture those important areas, combined with our custom post processing we’ll showcase a property to show it’s full potential.
