Head for the Maldives!

By Monique Delanoue-Paynot

The Emerald Collection has opened its second luxury property in Raa Atoll on the Indian Ocean.
An opportunity in the heart of winter to soak up the sun.

Immersed in a lush garden, private lagoon with natural corals, located on an intimate 7-hectare island… The dream! Only 20 minutes by boat from the group’s first property in the Maldives: Emerald Maldives Resort & Spa, the brand new Emerald Faarufushi Resort & Spa does not deviate from the brand’s usual characteristics. The benchmark? Both resorts are already members of The Leading Hotels of the World, which offers the top-of-the-range signature formula: Deluxe All-Inclusive. A very VIP comfort.

Accommodation: 80 contemporary luxury villas on the Indian Ocean. In addition, there is a complex of 5 restaurants, various gastronomic offers, 2 bars and a spa with 8 treatment rooms located in cabins on stilts. As a bonus, there is a fitness centre equipped with the latest professional Technogym machines. Good news, you can bring your children of all ages! The resort has a kids and teens club, the Dolphin Kids Club, where a fun and educational programme is offered.

We like:
the signature experience of The Emerald Collection All-Inclusive. What could be more pleasurable than allowing guests the freedom to enjoy (and not have to count) both the many water and land-based activities and the gourmet à la carte dinners accompanied by a wide selection of international wines and spirits.

On the environmental side: a renewed focus on promoting sustainable tourism by implementing responsible practices at the operational level. But also during guests’ stays in this 100% plastic-free property. The goal? To leave as little impact as possible on the destination through projects such as a coral farming initiative and the consumption of Emerald Water, bottled directly at the resort.

To know: The Emerald Collection is an Italian luxury hotel group run by the Scarapicchia family, who have over 40 years of experience (dating back to before the creation of The Emerald Group) in managing luxury all-inclusive properties in the Indian Ocean, Caribbean and East Africa. The criteria? Natural elegance in harmony with the surrounding environment, special attention and an unmistakable Italian touch, structures that offer unforgettable experiences in discreetly luxurious surroundings and an authentic approach to hospitality thanks to a team of professionals from Europe, Asia and Africa.
