About Ritz Carlton Maldives

From a Sangu conch shell blown on arrival, evoking a scene from the ancient Maldives to the legendary Ritz-Carlton service by an Aris Meeha, an island butler inspired by the olden royal courts. From the celebration of sunsets with an elegant performance of Bodu Beru drums that honors the oldest surviving tradition of the Maldives, to a flaming ceremony marking the transition from day to evening, The Ritz-Carlton Maldives, Fari Islands invites you to embrace island life.

The resort features 7 restaurants and bars between the dedicated Culinary Island, Grand Sunset Beach and Fari Marina Village, offering curated experiences for all tastes. Guests can wake up to the aromas of freshly brewed coffee in La Locanda, where the Southern Italian cuisine and customs unfold; savor indulgent mezze platters and succulent kebabs at Arabesque; embrace the Mediterranean at the family-friendly Beach Shack, or appreciate Oriental flavors at Summer Pavilion, a contemporary Cantonese fine dining restaurant.
