The Emerald Collection, a luxury resort group behind Emerald Maldives Resort & Spa, has announced its expansion with the acquisition of Emerald Faarufushi Resort & Spa. Set on a seven-hectare private island in the Raa Atoll, and framed by an extensive lagoon of 100 hectares, Emerald Faarufushi Resort & Spa will open on May 1, 2022 and is currently in the process of affiliating with The Leading Hotels of the World.

The island has 80 villas, split into six different categories: Beach Villas (10), Family Villas with Pool (10), Beach Villas with Pool (17), Water Villa with Pool (39), Superior Water Villa with Pool (3) and one Presidential Villa located on the beach. 

The resort will have five restaurants and two bars to choose from, as part of its signature “Deluxe All-Inclusive” packaging. The signature Italian restaurant, Mediterraneo, and Eclipse Bar are both located on the resort’s jetty, with the former serving Italian dishes, and the latter serving cocktails and aperitifs.

The resort also houses Emerald Spa, hidden amongst the vegetation. It comprises eight air-conditioned spa suites elevated among the palm trees, where the design and oval roofs resemble eco-friendly spaceships. There is a steam room, a manicure and pedicure corner, a yoga pavilion, plunge pools, a spa boutique, and an immersive relaxation area. The spa menu draws from Balinese tradition and includes a host of relaxing body massages and detoxifying facials. Designed with sports- and fitness-lovers in mind, Emerald Faarufushi Resort & Spa has one large tennis court and one paddle court in the marina, along with an air conditioned Gym & Sports Centre with Technogym equipment.

Emerald Faarufushi Resort & Spa will offer extensive water sports facilities and diving at the five-star Diving Centre, where guests can achieve PADI licence. A dedicated Dolphin Kids’ Club is under construction and will comprise complimentary indoor and outdoor facilities for children aged three to 12.
