MALDIVES - Capella Hotel Group has launched a new lifestyle brand, Patina Hotels & Resorts, to cater to a new generation of travellers. Patina Maldives, Fari Islands, will be the first to open in the fourth quarter of 2020. Other properties in Ubud, Bali and Sanya (China) are in development.
Located in the North Atoll of the Maldives and a 50-minute speedboat journey from Male International Airport, the five-star Patina Maldives will be located on the new archipelago, Fari Islands. Guests will benefit from four islands worth of facilities, including a Fari Marina, Beach Club, boutique shops, and a selection of upscale F&B options. A departure from the typical Maldivian offering, Fari Islands offers freedom of movement across several islands, ensuring excitement and variety.
Mr Nicholas Clayton, CEO of Capella Hotel Group said, "Patina Hotels & Resorts will become a new leader in progressive hospitality. Focusing on creating a seamless experience, the brand is refreshing, dynamic and modern, appealing to the blended lifestyle of today's curious and conscious consumer. We look forward to bringing the Patina vision to life when we open Patina Maldives later this year."
The resort's 90 beach and water villas, range from one to three bedrooms, all of which embody a harmony of sanctuary and stimulation. The resort will offer 20 Fari Studios. Spaces have been designed by renowned architects from Studio Mk27 (by Marcio Kogan), Kengo Kuma & Associates, and Kerry Hill Architects.
