Fari Islands to Debut 3 World-Class Hotels; Capella Maldives, Patina Maldives, Ritz-Carlton Maldives

Singapore-based real estate developer, Pontiac Land announced the launch of Fari Islands in the Maldives, set to open in Q4 2020. The island chain will be home to 3 world-class properties; Capella Maldives, Patina Maldives and the Ritz-Carlton Maldives.

Located in the North Malé Atoll, 50-minutes by speedboat from Malé International Airport, the archipelago will also features a vibrant Marina and a purpose-built Village campus dedicated to providing the highest quality of life for its employees.


Capella Maldives which will be made up of 64 spacious villas and mansions with panoramic views of the Indian Ocean and private infinity pools, a Michelin-starred Omakase Bar, and a serene-looking Aurige Spa.

Patina Maldives, the second hotel, is designed by Brazilian architect Marcio Kogan and is set to open with 110 beach suites, beach villas, and water villas that each feel like they’re own private sanctuary. Restaurants at Patina Maldives will focus on healthy food and green practices, so expect lots of vegan options. In terms of relaxation, guests will be able to while away a day at one of the outdoor pools (they’ve got plans for a watsu pool), the spa, or watch a film under the stars at the open-air cinema.

The third international luxury hotel brand with plans to open on Fari Island will be the Ritz-Carlton Maldives. The hotel will be joining Marriott’s other stays including the St. Regis Maldives Vommuli Resort and W Maldives, both American Express Fine Hotels & Resorts properties which are already dotted across the Maldives. Details of the new opening are yet to come.

But the ‘communal beating heart’ of the archipelago according to a Fari Island’s statement will be the picturesque Fari Marina, an area built around a Beach Club and dotted with boutiques and upscale food and drink options like Japanese teppanyaki, a tandoor oven restaurant, and a bakery by the beach. Guests from all of the Fari Island resorts are welcome and can reach the marina by boat.

Pontiac Land is also committed to building an enriching living environment for all its employees. At Fari Islands, a spacious purpose-Fari Village is said to be built with a people-first approach dedicated to developing the next generation of Maldives’ top hoteliers. Employees can look forward to thoughtful town planning, a full range of recreational facilities and amenities, continuous development opportunities, and an active social calendar. Fari Islands seeks to grow a family that embodies and champions the unparalleled Fari experience.
