Rosewood Hotels and Resorts, a luxury hospitality brand, has announced that it will debut in the island paradise of Maldives.
Rosewood Ranfaru, set to open in 2027, is the latest development in the discerning brand’s “thoughtful” growth pipeline. The resort “will reflect Rosewood’s guiding A Sense of Place philosophy through a highly curated experience that emphasizes privacy, luxury, and a connection to the natural habitat”.
Stretched across a striking chain of private islands around a pristine lagoon in the South Male Atoll, Rosewood Ranfaru will be situated less than an hour away from Velana International Airport in Male. From touchdown to toes in the sand, guests will be able to make the journey to the resort via either a 35-minute yacht ride or a ten-minute seaplane hop. Rosewood says that both experiences will exude the same level of luxury that awaits on the property’s shores.
The Maldives has its own mystique and allure. Given its well-earned reputation as a haven for discerning travelers, we are very excited to bring our unique brand of Rosewood lifestyle and hospitality to this chain of islands.said Radha Arora, President of Rosewood Hotels & Resorts.

At the heart of the property will lie several specialty restaurants, a beach club, and an Asaya well-being facility and fitness center, together offering a holistic wellness escape. A true leisure oasis, Rosewood Ranfaru will also feature numerous swimming pools, both for adults and families, paddle courts, and an array of water sports that will allow guests to fully explore the peaceful and crystal-clear waters of the encircling lagoon.
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.added Radha.
Rosewood says that the resort’s 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. Their guiding mission will be to showcase the undiscovered sides of this island paradise.
One of the most coveted island destinations on the planet, the Maldives are considered by many to be the ultimate luxury wanderlust experience. This picturesque archipelago boasts bright white sands, warm calm waters and a standard of hospitality that is second to none. Now, having achieved worldwide recognition as a preeminent tropical paradise, the Maldives is looking toward the future with an eye on longevity and sustainability. Rosewood says that this strategy aligns with the brand’s strategy of their “unique approach to luxury lifestyle”.
