New resorts in 2016

There seem to be many resorts opening (or just opened) in 2016.

I have made list over some time, and might have misunderstood the opening time at some of the resorts.

We also know that many resorts are not opening on time..

But still.. The list is quite long:

Aaaveee -just opened I think

Furaveri- just opened

St. Regis Vommuli

Amari Havodda, opened not long ago

Mercure Koodoo

Hurawalhi

Lux Olhuhali

Soneva Jani

Robinson Olhuhali / Noonu

Kandima

Hondaafushi

Milaidhoo resort villas

The Residence Dhigurah

Chedi Dhapparu

The St. regis Vommuli and Soneva Jani will most likely be the most luxurious on the list.

Don't know too much about Millaidhoo, but think you can put it on the 5+ list as well.

The Residence Dhigurah is right next door to The Residence that is already open in Gaaf Alif. Apparently there's going to be a bridge built between the two islands. The water villas are probably 50% finished but not sure about the rest of the resort.

Mercure Koodoo is a weird one. Very weird. It's on the same island as Koodoo airport and Koodoo Fish Factory, although on the other side of a very large island. It has water villas, and going past on a boat, they seem pretty small. However, they are in a absolutely perfect position in some ways., the last one is at the edge of the reef (I hope they haven't caused any damage) and very often there's lots of dolphins swimming and jumping within a few hundred metres. The local ferries go past pretty close by though, but I wonder if they will change once opened. Locally, it's a referred to as a city hotel, rather than a resort, so I wonder what the alcohol/bikini status will be there. On my next trip, I'd be curious enough to stay there, but I'd be very local anyway. This link seems to suggest there won't be any restrictions, but who knows?

I wonder how many rooms will be on the little picnic island of Lux Olhuhali? Or will Olhuhali be by Robinson?
