Reethi Faru

Having opened at the end of 2017, Reethi Faru is a sister resort to the popular Reethi Beach Resort. Occupying a tiny island in Raa Atoll with a vibrant house reef just off shore, the resort is committed to conservation and minimising its impact on the local environment. Villas have been built using locally sourced materials and are positioned to blend with nature either amid gardens, along the beachfront or on stilts over the lagoon. Four bars and five restaurants are spread across the island overlooking the lagoon or by the pool, offering a la carte and buffet dining throughout the day and night.

Leisure facilities include a Health & Sports Centre where guests can play badminton, squash, tennis and beach volleyball, while yoga, pilates and dance classes are also available.

One of the world’s most luxurious brands has just opened its first resort in the Maldives and is already receiving rave reviews! The name of the exclusive resort translates to Secret Water Island, with 120 villas occupying a 16 hectare island surrounded by one of the largest lagoons in the Maldives. Highlights at The Fairmont include a 100-metre long swimming pool, a vast spa and a spectacular underwater sculpture installation. As the only resort in the Shaviyani Atoll, the waters surrounding the island are home to an abundance of marine life including manta rays, turtles and dolphins, with a vast house reef accessible from the beach.

Each of the rustic yet elegant beach and water villas has its own private pool, while the vast Tented Jungle Villa offers a castaway experience. Four dining options offer a world of culinary experiences, with the all-bamboo poolside bar providing a beautiful spot for drinks with gorgeous sunset views. Guests can occupy themselves by diving or snorkelling, taking cooking or Thai boxing classes, playing tennis or football, going on excursions to local islands or setting sail on a sunset dolphin cruise.
