The Ritz-Carlton Maldives is an idyllic paradise offering luxurious facilities across three islands and all the amenities one could ask for.
Kerry Hill designed 100 villas at this resort that combine island living with sustainable modern design. Each is enclosed by clean sweeping curves and boasting private infinity pools for luxury living.
Personal hosts (Aris Meehas) welcome their guests with an open hand gesture and can help arrange tailored experiences.
As one would expect from such a property, every effort is taken to ensure a truly bespoke experience for guests. This includes anticipatory service – when staff understand your desires before you do. For instance, if you arrive exhausted after traveling long distances to reach the hotel, they might arrange a soothing bath filled with sea salts and fragrant candles as part of anticipatory service.
The resort’s personalized approach can also be seen in its dining options. Boasting seven distinct culinary venues that strike an optimal balance between high-end dining, beachfront luxury, and wellness-centered menus; Summer Pavilion takes inspiration from The Ritz-Carlton Millenia Singapore by serving modern Cantonese cuisine while Iwau offers multisensory teppanyaki grills for multisensory gastronomy adventures. La Locanda serves luscious espressos and aperitifs every morning while family-friendly Beach Shack embraces carefree Mediterranean spirit by serving shared plates of shared plates of seafood dishes served alongside shared plates of shared plates of shared plates and grilling seafood!
Each of Kerry Hill Architects’ 100 elegantly designed villas at this resort, situated either over clear waters or among beautiful beach coves, blurs the boundaries between indoor and outdoor spaces with expansive living areas, private pools, customised amenities, and an ‘Aris Meeha’ butler refined by The Ritz-Carlton that welcomes their guests with a respectful nod and an endearing “right hand on the heart”.
Apart from providing unparalleled privacy, these rooms feature cutting-edge technologies to elevate your stay. This includes high definition IPTV system offering access to premium channels as well as Apple TV and Blu-Ray players.

Hotel Capella Hotel Group stands out by featuring a marina that’s shared among three luxury resorts – something rare in Maldives where most developers focus on optimizing beachfront space to build villas. Nicholas Clayton, CEO of Capella Hotel Group told Insider that when working on other Maldive projects staff facilities have often been hidden out of sight from view which sends the wrong message and creates feelings of second-class citizenship among employees.
Fari Islands puts staff facilities as the core focus of its property, according to Khemka. He said that Fari wanted its staff facility “not to feel like your regular staff mess”, yet something inviting and welcoming like the public areas of other resorts. There’s a jogging track, the largest soccer field in Maldives (larger than any of its counterparts), basketball and volleyball courts, an intimate staff cafeteria seating 450 while still creating intimate sections, plus other amenities meant to make Fari feel more like home than work!
Of course, the hotel offers many other amenities as well, including a full-service salon and spa, well-stocked library, boutique store and an impressive collection of art from their resident artist. In addition, guests can rent bicycles, boats and canoes to further explore Fari Island.
A beach that’s accessible right from the hotel
The Ritz-Carlton Maldives, Fari Islands is situated on an archipelago at the northern-eastern tip of North Male Atoll and boasts stunning beaches and clear azure waters brimming with marine life. The resort’s minimalist design is mindful of its environmental impact; inspired by Maldivian culture’s circle concept by incorporating elements like swirling water currents and island breezes into its design narrative. A personal butler is assigned for each guest who requests services; these guests receive services through an Aris Meeha or island butler in order to fulfill any requests made from them by them!
