When one’s inquisitiveness and ability to explore has been stifled, it smothers your imagination. No longer do you process the possibility of there being multiple new private islands in the Indian Ocean, with unprecedented standards of luxury to enjoy. Meet the Fari Islands, an eco-conscious archipelago of four islands, positioned on a stunning reef. Developed under the chimerical vision of Pontiac Land, three islands will each boast a world-renown hotel, whilst the fourth serves as the staff island.
Located in the North Malé Atoll of the Maldives, a 45-minute speedboat journey from Malé International Airport, the three islands will respectively target a different consumer. Affluent and traditional for the Ritz-Carlton, ultra-affluent and experiential for Capella and affluent, urban and modern for Patina.
To complement the circular, minimalist vernacular of its setting, The Ritz-Carlton, Fari Islands, has been specially designed by Kerry Hill Architects to include visually lightweight elements in both the indoor and outdoor spaces. Each of the resort’s 100 villas will be developed for privacy and cocooned by clean, sweeping curves and architectural lines.
At Capella Maldives, Fari Islands, architectural firm Kengo Kuma & Associates and interior design specialist André Fu Studio have shaped the scheme to achieve a synergy between the contemporary elements of the project and Maldivian island life. Each of the resort’s 57 land and overwater villas and mansions are designed to immerse visitors in the beauty of the lagoon, with private infinity pools and panoramic views of the Indian Ocean.
Patina Maldives, Fari Islands is centred around an appreciation for nature, where it encourages guests to nurture genuine connections with themselves and the world around them. Designed by renowned Brazilian architect Marcio Kogan, Patina Maldives offers 90 contemporary one-to three-bedroom Beach and Water Pool Villas, alongside 20 Fari Studios, all of which embody a harmony of sanctuary and stimulation.
