A hideaway dedicated to adventure, freedom, and peace. Sound like your kind of holiday destination? You’re a lucky lad as the new Patina Maldives, Fari Island combines sustainability with plenty of creature comforts.
With reverence for pleasure, nourishment and activity, the new Indian Ocean resort, part of Capella Hotel Group’s new Patina Hotels & Resorts collection, is a luxurious enclave located in the North Malé Atoll, south of Helengeli, and promises to be a microcosm of Maldivian life.
Designed by Studio MK27 and Brazilian architect Marcio Kogan, with verdant gardens shaped by landscape designer Vladimir Djurovic, the resort’s 20 Fari Studios and 90 beach and over-water villas range from One Bedroom Beach Pool Villas to the stunning three-bedroom Beach House, complete with its own rooftop terrace and expansive gardens.
All of this is supported by a complex system of solar panels, part of the resort’s efforts to be self-sustainable, an ethos that extends to the development of a cold dome, where fruit and vegetables not native to the island are grown, reducing the dependency on imported produce.
Beyond your luxury accommodation, Patina Maldives is home to 12 restaurants ranging from a plant-based concept to the Maldives’ first and only Greek outlet – you can even graze through the day at a series of food trucks dotted around the island and come evening, the Fari Beach Club will welcome guests with a cool and laidback vibe.
You’ll also be in good company with the resort welcoming an ever-changing roster of talents and workshops ranging from art exhibitions and resident artists to visiting DJs and chefs. Leave time to visit the light pavilion created by American artist James Turrell and sound therapy sessions in the spa.
