Idyllic homes with a tropical charm

Maldives Residences brings all the archipelago’s tropical beauty to a modern, freehold residential development.

PARADISE exists on Earth and you need not venture far to find it. For in a little corner of Penang, there would soon be an exquisite enclave bespokely designed to exhilarate the senses and envelope one in perpetual bliss.

With a stunning backdrop of cerulean hues and touches of luxury at every corner, you would get to bask in a lavish, resort-like lifestyle all day, every day. At Maldives Residences, this will be your reality.

Magnificence magnified

Maldives Residences is seated in the heart of Ideal City, a highly accessible neighbourhood in Bayan Lepas, on the southwestern quarter of Penang island.

It is the latest conceptual offering by Ideal Property Group, the multi-award-winning homegrown developer, that was also behind the Greece-inspired I-Santorini in Tanjung Tokong, Cuban-inspired Havana Beach Residences at Ideal City Bayan Lepas and Ideal Venice Residency, in romantic Italian theme, at Island Glades.

Here, Ideal recreates the most alluring charms of the Maldives — which World Travel Awards ranked as The World’s Leading Destination in 2020 — in a freehold, modern residential development.

Maldives Residences will incorporate Maldivian elements as part of its architectural design. These are inspired by the islands’ best tourist attractions.

Here, you will find overwater cabanas topped with thatched roofs, designed to be breezy yet private. Kick back with stunning views of the glistening cerulean lagoon pool that emulates the islands’ famed, crystal clear waters.

The central structure would also house a gymnasium on the upper floor, overlooking the entire facilities deck. Meanwhile, the lower floor will be a family-oriented, sun deck lounge.

Future residents of Maldives Residences will also get to experience their own version of the famous Water Swings in the Maldives. There would also be a seashell-shaped raised platform which functions as a rest area.

An ideal neighbourhood

Bayan Lepas is one of Penang’s most thriving districts. It is also well-connected to the rest of Penang via several major thoroughfares like the Tun Dr Lim Chong Eu Expressway, both Penang Bridges and up to five proposed LRT stations under the Penang Transport Master Plan.

You would never need to rush to the airport hours in advance either as the Penang International Airport is mere minutes away!

Maldives Residences is also directly opposite SJKC Heng Ee and SMJK Heng Ee Cawangan Bayan Baru. Several government schools, the Straits International School, kindergartens and daycare centres are also nearby — making it a veritable ‘City of Academia’.

Other daily conveniences such as hypermarkets, shopping malls, food courts, wet markets, night markets, banks, clinics, hospitals and colleges are all a short drive away.

Maldives Residences is indeed a tropical paradise and urban retreat rolled into one where you can enjoy the best of both worlds. Why settle for a momentary vacation when you can live it every day?

To find out more, you can check out the Ideal Property Group showroom to experience it for yourselves. It will be open from Monday to Saturday, from 10am to 5:30pm.
