Raa Atoll is well on its way to become a tourism hub with a slew of openings in recent years including Faarufushi, Carpe Diem, Furaveri and now Emerald Resort & Spa. 

The 120-villa resort has 60 villas on the beach and 60 perched over water. It espouses a minimalist design wedded to contemporary decor.  

In a similar vein to most resorts embracing the all-inclusive concept, Emerald Resort does the same, with its ‘Deluxe All-Inclusive.’ The property bills itself as a ‘real laboratory and a point of reference for flavours and taste.’ It features Mediterranean, Latin American, Asian and an international cuisine through its four dining outlets.  

The resort features dive and water sports centres, a spa, a kids’ club, and a gym & sports centre.  

The property is accessible via a 40-minute seaplane transfer or a 30-minute domestic flight to Ifuru and a 15-minute speedboat journey from Ifuru to the resort.
