JW Marriott Maldives Resort unveils new sports arena
To mark the resort’s third anniversary, JW Marriott Maldives Resort & Spa is unveiling not one, but three new sporting facilities for guests and associates.
The luxurious multigenerational resort has added a new football pitch, volleyball and badminton court to amplify the meaningful moments and togetherness during holiday. Overlooking the crystal-clear lagoon, families can feel a rush of adrenaline and reveal their competitive streak, as they test their sporting abilities on the pitch.
Whatever their age or level, all the courts are fully equipped for serious and friendly matches, training sessions and for those looking to try their hand at a new sport. As an island filled with sporting enthusiasts, the JW team is excited to welcome guests to the courts, and perhaps even challenge then in a friendly game.
An opening ceremony was held on 5 November as JW associates who joined since the pre-opening of the resort cut the ribbon to launch the new sporting grounds. A special tea and gathering followed, with a tight match of futsal between management and associates.
The volleyball court and football pitch is available for guests between 10am to 7pm daily, with a special VIP area available for spectators to watch football matches. Badminton is currently only available for associates.
