The Ritz-Carlton Maldives, Fari Islands, is a 100-villa 5-star resort on the beautiful beaches of the North Malé Atoll. It opened June 1st, 2021.
Every aspect of The Ritz-Carlton Maldives’ philosophy and design centers around the notion of the true spirit of the Maldives.
The resort’s minimalist circular architecture and the holistic philosophy of wholeness is one that the Maldivian environment supports.
The vision behind the resort’s iconic design, led by Kerry Hill Architects, is inspired by natural landscape of the turquoise lagoon and the swirling ocean breezes, embracing the circle of island life, with modern architecture meeting the Maldives. Interior and exterior design is humble, minimalist, and visually lightweight. Leaving little impact on its environment and always maximizing views to the horizon and the connection with the elements.
The villas at The Ritz-Carlton Maldives Fari Islands
Each luxury villa at The Ritz-Carlton Maldives design also allows for total privacy. Clean sweeping curves and lines of the architecture, with the water, landscape and breeze flowing around and between the spaces.
All bedrooms lookout to the horizon through panoramic sliding doors. That dissolve the barrier between inside and out, with a curved deck and private pool merging into the ocean beyond. Interior villa design also continues the simple approach to detailing with a limited palette of natural materials and colour hues.
Furniture, rugs and fabrics have been custom designed by Kerry Hill Architects. Drawing influence from local craft traditions in collaboration with Maldivian and international artists.
Minimizing the impact on the fragile reef ecosystem was paramount in the design of The Ritz-Carlton Maldives.
By using pioneering pre-fabricated design methods and materials, KHA has ensured that no cutting was necessary on the island, reducing heavy operations and, crucially, generating zero waste or pollution.
The Fari Islands is an integrated destination in the Maldives. This archipelago presents three world-class hospitality brands (Patina Maldives and Capella Maldives). Fari Marina, a vibrant Fari Beach Club, charming boutiques, and a selection of handpicked, upscale food and beverage options.
