With 176 modern rooms, Avani+ Fares Maldives Resort welcomes couples and honeymooners, as well as families and groups of friends, with a focus on multi-room accommodation. Guests can take advantage of enticing opening offers that reflect the resort’s commitment to providing competitively priced upscale escapes.

The brand-new resort, located just 35 minutes away from Velana International Airport, offers a wide range of accommodation options from romantic beach pool villas to spacious two, three, and four-bedroom beach pavilions, and even two and three-bedroom overwater villas, ideal for group getaways and multi-generational family stays. Designed with a multifaceted approach, the resort strikes a balance between privacy and connectivity, providing spaces for both relaxation and entertainment. With stylish rooms that lead onto private swimming pools and sun decks, guests can revel in an effortlessly chic indoor-outdoor lifestyle, with mere steps separating them from the shimmering shores.

The resort offers guests an opportunity to experience the fascinating marine life of the Baa Atoll’s UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. As one of only 61 islands situated in the marine protected waters of the reserve, guests have easy access to two of the area’s top attractions: Hanifaru Bay, providing an opportunity to get up close and personal with manta rays and whale sharks, and the awe-inspiring five islands landmark featuring a chain of ring-shaped islands. The resort has an impressive twelve dive sites right off the beach, a 220-metre house reef bursting with life, and an additional Fares reef that is just 600 metres away from the shore. Guests can expect to encounter playful turtles, dolphins, and a wide variety of marine life during their stay.

Avani+ Fares Maldives Resort offers guests a diverse selection of culinary experiences with its seven trendy restaurants and options for private beach and in-villa dining. Guests can sample local and international cuisine at Ocean Terrace and the poolside bar, Skipjack, while Charcoal offers a delectable selection of grilled dishes. The lobby’s Hammock is the go-to spot for grab-and-go snacks and kombuchas, while Tribe and Smuggler’s Shack provide a distinctive after-hours experience with their molecular cocktails and the largest collection of rum in the Maldives. The resort is also home to Petit Bistro, the first kids-only restaurant in the Maldives catering to young guests with healthy and universally loved dishes. No matter the dining option, guests can expect fresh ingredients from the resort’s mini farm which sources organic produce and locally caught catch of the day.

In contrast to conventional Maldivian retreats, Fares ignites the night with pulsating live music, electrifying DJ sets and mesmerizing fire shows. Under the spell of the moon, guests can sway to cool beats, savour their favourite cocktails, and immerse themselves in the serene beauty of the Maldives.

“The opening of Avani+ Fares marks an exciting new chapter as the brand’s first property in the Maldives,” said the resort’s General Manager, Riaan Drever. “Our team has meticulously crafted an experience that celebrates the natural splendour of this iconic destination, while delivering unparalleled value, service and comfort.
