Rosewood Hotels & Resorts Set to Launch Rosewood Ranfaru in the Maldives

The Maldives is a highly sought-after destination known for its stunning white sand beaches, calm waters, and unmatched hospitality. As a preeminent tropical paradise, the Maldives has achieved worldwide recognition as the ultimate luxury wanderlust experience. With an eye towards sustainability and longevity, the destination is the perfect fit for Rosewood Hotels & Resorts®'s unique approach to luxury lifestyle. The highly curated experience at Rosewood Ranfaru, opening in 2027, will reflect Rosewood's guiding A Sense of Place® philosophy, emphasizing privacy, luxury, and a connection to the natural habitat.

Located in the South Male Atoll, Rosewood Ranfaru will span across a striking chain of private islands around a pristine lagoon, less than an hour away from Velana International Airport in Male. Guests can reach the resort via a 35-minute yacht ride or a ten-minute seaplane hop, both of which will exude luxury. The resort will offer guests endless opportunities to embark on restorative getaways surrounded by stunning views of the world's most beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Developed by Estithmar Holding, the project represents the next generation of Maldives tourism, elevating the overall luxury offerings in this sublime corner of the globe.

According to Radha Arora, President of Rosewood Hotels & Resorts, "The Maldives has its own mystique and allure. Given its well-earned reputation as a haven for discerning travellers, we are excited to bring our unique brand of lifestyle and hospitality to this chain of islands. We are confident that through our commitment to immersive amenities, world-class design, and high-touch service, Rosewood will be able to offer the next iteration of Maldivian paradise."

Rosewood Ranfaru will offer approximately 120 beachfront and overwater villas, ranging in size from one- to five-bedrooms, all with private pools, and a select number located on private islands. Unsurpassed service and amenities will be central to the guest experience, including a Rosewood Explorer's Club to spark discovery and inspire imagination among the youngest visitors. At the heart of the property will be several specialty restaurants, a beach club, and an Asaya® well-being facility and fitness centre, together offering a holistic wellness escape. The resort will also feature numerous swimming pools, both for adults and families, paddle courts, and an array of water sports, allowing guests to fully explore the peaceful and crystal-clear waters of the encircling lagoon.

Moutaz AlKhayyat, Chairman of Estithmar Holding, said, "I am delighted to announce our latest investment in the Maldives, a destination that offers unparalleled beauty and a vibrant culture, making it one of the most attractive tourist spots in the world. We believe that the Maldives is an ideal location for investment and tourism, and it continues to attract visitors and investors from around the world with its friendly atmosphere and supportive government policies. Our new resort development aligns perfectly with our company's vision and growth plans, and we are excited about the prospect of expanding our portfolio of luxury travel destinations."

Rosewood Ranfaru's world-class team of associates will leverage their rich understanding of the destination to create a highly curated menu of on- and off-property experiences designed to truly immerse guests into their surroundings. The guiding mission will be to showcase the undiscovered sides of this island paradise, providing guests with the ultimate Maldivian paradise experience.
