Zamani Islands: Atoll Estates announces eight-island "lifestyle destination"

24 January 2024 • Written by Dea Jusufi

Atoll Estates has announced the development of a new "lifestyle destination" named Zamani Islands. Located in the Maldives’ South Malé Atoll, it will comprise eight islands, three individual resorts and the country's first superyacht marina and yacht club. Planning is courtesy of Dubai architecture firm Killa Design.

Zamani Islands aims to be the first 100% clean, renewable energy resort in the Maldives

Zamani Islands is set to launch its "first phase" in spring 2026, which involves a collection of private estates and mansions available for residential purchase. Included within each residence are multiple private pools, a personal spa and wellness area as well as a private berth within the superyacht marina. The berth comes with full-service facilities including crew amenities, provisioning, maintenance and a yacht club.

Ownership also comes with "unrestricted access" to the resorts and facilities, including three spas (one of which is the "first medical spa in the Maldives") and 28 food and beverage venues. The resort's culinary "crown jewel", however, will be the Maldives' largest underwater restaurant.

Zamani Islands aims to be the first 100 per cent clean, renewable energy resort in the Maldives. Initiatives include a "coral relocation [and propagation] programme" (with a proposed 70 hectares dedicated for this purpose). The first resort also aims to produce 50 per cent of its food requirements and have 100 per cent of its energy needs met by renewable sources.

"This is a project more than two years in the making. It was our intention from the outset to conceive a resort with sustainability truly at its heart that will do good for both people and place," said Atoll Estates founders Amit Majumder and Dmitry Bourtov. "We are excited to share further details of Zamani Islands as the project develops."
