You & Me by Cocoon Maldives appoints Lorenzo Benvenuti as General Manager
You & Me by Cocoon Maldives, a romantic five-star resort set to open in February 2019, has appointed Lorenzo Benvenuti as its General Manager.
Lorenzo will be overseeing the day to day operations of the brand new resort.
“I am delighted to join You & Me and the incredible team. With the hotel’s versatile and spectacular concept, I want to start immediately and develop all new ideas to provide our guests with the time of their lives,” Lorenzo was quoted in a statement, as saying.
“We are waiting for you to come and experience the new concept of hospitality.”
With over 27 years of experience in the hospitality industry, Lorenzo’s career has taken him to several prestigious resorts and hotels in Italy, Argentina, Colombia, UAE, US and UK. He has worked extensively in pre-opening of resorts and introducing new properties to markets across Europe, the Americas, Middle East and Asia.
The second resort owned and managed by Cocoon Investments, You & Me by Cocoon Maldives is located in the secluded northern atoll of Raa, and is accessible by a 45-minute scenic seaplane flight from the main Velana International Airport. Alternatively, guests can take a domestic flight to the Ifuru domestic airport in Raa atoll, followed by a 20-minute speedboat ride to the resort.
Positioned as an achingly elegant, rustic-chic resort that exclusively caters to guests aged 16 and above, You & Me Maldives by Cocoon has 111 villas — of which 97 are overwater — and six superb dining outlets scattered around the island, each highlighting the resort’s unique views, flavours and features. The resort will feature five restaurants, offering Japanese fine dining and authentic Italian dishes in an elegant and rustic environment.
Guests can take advantage of the ‘dine around’ concept, where guests on Half Board Plus, Full Board Plus, and All-Inclusive packages can have lunch and dinner at any à la carte restaurant. They can also enjoy free-flow French champagne at a dedicated ‘champagne island’.
The new resort oozes romance, with drop-dead gorgeous villas and free flow champagne, not to mention an intimate fine dining designer restaurant, H2O by LAGO, which is fully submerged at the bottom of the island’s lagoon.
Cocoon Investments opened its first resort, Cocoon Maldives in March 2017.
Cocoon Maldives, located in Ookolhufinolhu Island in the northern Lhaviyani atoll and accessible by a 40-minute scenic seaplane flight from the main Velana International Airport, blends the best of Italian design with the Maldives’ stunning natural beauty. The five-star resort houses 150 villas that are exclusively designed by Lago, one of Italy’s finest design firms.
