Reachable via a 10-minute seaplane or 45-minute speedboat ride, the Maldives’ newest resort is spread across three islands and an overwater quay.

Villas have from one to three bedrooms, and are set over the Indian Ocean or nestled along private shorelines. 

Interiors feature spacious living areas that blur the line between indoors and outdoors. Each residence has full-length sliding doors, an infinity pool with sundeck and an outdoor rainforest shower. The waterfront villas also come with overwater hammocks and direct access to the ocean below.

All guests staying at The Ritz-Carlton Maldives, Fari Islands will have their own ‘aris meeha’ (personal butler) on call 24 hours a day.

The resort’s most exclusive accommodation is the sprawling Ritz-Carlton Estate, which takes up 1,500 square metres of oceanfront real estate and comes with a private beach, spa room and full kitchen complete with a private chef.

Dining with a view

When it comes to dining, guests can visit Culinary Island, where restaurants include the Summer Pavilion, inspired by Ritz-Carlton’s Michelin-starred Millenia restaurant in Singapore; Iwau, a Japanese eatery with teppanyaki grill; family-friendly La Locanda serving Italian cuisine, and Eau Bar for opulent afternoon teas.
