Marriott has expanded its enviable portfolio of luxurious (01 Jun 2021) Ritz-Carlton hotels, with the opening of The Ritz-Carlton Maldives, Fari Islands, the first Ritz-Carlton in the country.
Located on the Fari Islands, an archipelago on the
north-eastern tip of North Mal Atoll, the area is famous for its untouched white-sand beaches and brilliant azure waters teeming with marine life.
“Following much anticipation
surrounding its debut, we are thrilled to finally open The Ritz-Carlton Maldives, Fari Islands, and set a new standard for luxury hospitality in Maldives, an internationally desired destination,” said Rajeev Menon, President, Asia Pacific (excluding China), Marriott International. “This latest addition perfectly complements the Marriott International luxury portfolio, as we continually strive to meet the increasing demand for luxury offerings and experiences from affluent international travelers. This is an extremely monumental day for us, and is set to renew confidence in international travel.
accessible via a scenic ten-minute seaplane ride, or a 45-minute luxury boat ride from Velana International Airport, the resort is part of the picturesque Fari Marina with its vibrant Beach Club, charming boutiques and tempting eateries forming the archipelago’s communal heart.
Designed by Kerry Hill
Architects, The Ritz-Carlton Maldives, Fari Islands is inspired by its natural surroundings, including the elements of swirling water and ocean breezes, which are incorporated into a design narrative that is rooted in the shape of a circle that also represents the flow of island life.
The resort features 100 one to
three-bedroom villas, either set over crystal clear waters, or nestled along pristine beach coves, each offering spacious living spaces that blur the line between indoors and outdoors with panoramic sliding doors, a sun deck with a private infinity pool and breathtaking views.
The Ritz-Carlton Maldives, Fari Islands
offers guests seven distinct culinary venues, a spa with nine treatment rooms, a comprehensive tennis program with coaching, a dive centre, variety of adventures with Jean-Michel Cousteaus Ambassadors of the Environment Program, a full kid’s club and other wellness and fitness outlets. .
