Emerald Faarufushi Resort & Spa, in the northern part of the Maldives archipelago, is truly an escape from it all. Located on a seven-hectare private island in the Raa Atoll, white sands lapped by crystal-clear waters are always only moments away.
This five-star, all-inclusive resort is home to 80 luxurious villas; 38 of which are found on the beach nestling in lush vegetation. The other 42 villas perch elegantly above the dazzling lagoon, which is home to one of the Maldives' most stunning coral reefs. The majority of the villas also have a private pool with ocean views.
Enjoy the choice that five restaurants and two bars offer at Emerald Faarufushi Resort & Spa. Like the villas, the restaurants are a mix of beachfront and over-water venues. There's a buffet with Italian, Chinese, and Japanese food, plus a steakhouse, an Italian restaurant, and a beach club grill serving Mediterranean and pan-Asian dishes.
Guests aren't short on leisure facilities here either, with a spa, outdoor swimming pool, kids' club, and fitness centre all at their disposal. Active types will love playing a few games on the tennis court.
