The Ritz-Carlton Spa Maldives has nine rooms and offers a host of relaxing and rejuvenating treatments. The Ritz Kids Club is designed for ages 4 to 12, with the island’s four pillars – land, water, environmental responsibility, and culture prominent in the activities that younger guests are offered. There are three resorts in the Fari Islands of which the Ritz-Carlton is one. Built around a Beach Club, the shared Fari Marina will offer guests numerous alternative dining experiences. The resort itself has seven restaurants and bars – the highlight being the Maldivian offshoot of Singapore’s Michelin-starred Summer Pavilion.
