The Emerald Faarufushi Resort & Spa opened its doors on 1 October. The 5-star luxury resort in Raa atoll is Emerald Collection’s second property in the Maldives. Located on a 7-hectare island, the resort is just 20 minutes by boat from the group’s first property, Emerald Maldives Resort & Spa.
Both resorts are members of ‘The Leading Hotels of the World,’ and offer The Emerald Collection’s high-quality, signature Deluxe All-Inclusive service formula, as well as the opportunity for guests to island-hop and experience two luxury properties under the same brand.
Emerald Faarufushi boasts 80 contemporary villas, 5 restaurants, 2 bars, and a Sports Centre with professional Technogym machines and equipment. The treatment rooms of the resort’s spa are designed as treehouses. The resort is also home to tennis and padel courts. Its Dolphin Kids Club offers a programme of fun educational activities for children and teens.
“We are thrilled to consolidate our presence in the Maldives with the opening of Emerald Faarufushi Resort & Spa”, said Aldo Scarapicchia, Partner and Managing Director of The Emerald Collection.
“The new property will allow us to offer an integrated experience for international guests, with 80 additional accommodations between Beach and Water Villas, 70 of which have private pools. All our villas have been designed to comfortably host both couples and families with children. In fact our new resort is also home to the Dolphin Kids Club, a space where younger guests can really play, learn, have fun yet feel independent under the watchful eye of our multilingual professional educators. The ‘barefoot elegance’ style of the resort is woven through every element of a stay, and promises excellent standards delivered hand-in-hand with a genuine sense of ease in the refined yet informal surroundings”.
