Immersed in lush greenery and surrounded by a 100-hectare private lagoon with natural coral reef, the new Emerald Faarufushi Resort & Spa is located on an intimate 7-hectare island in the Maldives. This glistening gem is reachable by a 45-minute seaplane journey from Velana International Airport or, alternatively, a 40-minute domestic flight to Ifuru Domestic Airport and a 5-minute speedboat ride.
The island 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 in the Maldives, experiencing two luxury properties under the same brand.
Emerald Faarufushi encompasses 80 contemporary and independent villas. Championing a minimalistic, sophisticated design which incorporates natural elements of stone and wood, all villas were built with the intention of integrating with the surrounding environment. They are indulgently understated — sleek, modern, and utterly relaxing. Perched either on the white sandy beach or directly on the water, the villas are all carefully curated havens with a breathtaking Indian Ocean view.
From the Aqua Restaurant to the Beach Club Grill, the Carnivorous and Asian restaurants and, a unique overwater Mediterranean gastronomic experience, the property is the ideal place for both couples and families looking for a wide range of international cuisines. Faarufushi is also home to The Emerald Spa with 8 treatment rooms in evocative treehouses, and a Sports Centre equipped with professional Technogym machines and equipment. The resort features tennis and padel courts and ensures a programme of fun yet educational activities for children and teens at the Dolphin Kids Club.
The signature experience is The Emerald Collection’s Deluxe All-Inclusive formula, which allows guests to make the most of countless activities, both on water and land, à la carte gourmet dining, and an extensive selection of premium international wines, beers and spirits.
The group has also renewed its focus on promoting sustainable tourism by implementing green practices both operationally and for the guest experience at 100% plastic-free properties. The Emerald Collection aims to leave a limited impact on the destination as possible, with projects including a coral farming initiative, and the consumption of Emerald Water bottled directly at the resort.
