The Maldives are located southwest of India and Sri Lanka, and are made up of 26 atolls, dotting the deep blue Indian Ocean with their aquamarine beauty.
For years people have visited this tiny island nation to stay in bungalows perched above the water, a sort of tropical idealism that seems too good to be true.
The Ritz Carlton’s new property is on the Fari Islands archipelago in the North Malé Atoll, and has an impressive 100 over-the-water villas and cottages. Each villa comes with a private infinity pool, sundeck, and an Aris Meeha personal butler. The rooms are tastefully appointed, with views that truly can’t be topped.
We’re happy to read that this resort has also taken steps to creating a sustainable, ecologically sensitive property.
Available from $1500/night.
