Bulgari Hotels and Resorts has announced that it will debut in the Maldives with a new luxury resort set to open in 2025. The new Bulgari property in Maldives will be the 13th gem in the Bulgari Hotels and Resorts’ portfolio.
The Bulgari Resort Ranfushi, meaning Little Gold Island in Maldivian language, will be located in the Raa Atoll of the Maldives archipelago, 45 minutes by sea plane from Maldives’ Malé airport. Surrounded by pristine waters and framed by lush, landscaped gardens, the resort will be spread over 20 hectares.
The resort will feature 54 villas, including a Bulgari Villa on a separate exclusive island, 33 Beach Villas each with private swimming pool, 20 Overwater Villas and a full range of luxury hotel facilities.
With design paramount to all other Bulgari Hotels and Resorts by Italian architectural firm ACPV ARCHITECTS Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel, Bulgari Resort Ranfushi will introduce to the Maldives the uncompromising contemporary style that characterizes all the Bulgari Hotels. The Resort will also incorporate the “highest” standards of environmental sustainability, including a new island made to host nesting bird population.
