Bulgari Hotels & Resorts has signed an agreement for a new luxury resort in the Maldives. Bulgari Resort Ranfushi is scheduled to open in 2025 and will be the hotel group’s 13th property.

Resort Ranfushi, meaning Little Gold Island in the Maldivian language, will embody its titular allure. Spread over nearly 50 acres, the resort will feature landscaped gardens enveloped by crystal blue waters and golden sands in addition to an array of luxurious hotel facilities.

The resort, located only 45 minutes from the Maldives’ Malé airport by plane in the Raa Atoll of the Maldives archipelago, will comprise 54 keys. Thirty-three Beach Villas each with their own swimming pool, 20 overwater villas and a Bulgari Villa located on a separate private island make up resort’s accommodation.

All of these properties will adhere to a high standard of sustainability in addition to a neighbouring island that will be made to host nesting bird populations.

As well as promoting green, luxury living, the resort will also encourage both mental and physical wellbeing. In addition to the Bulgari Bar, a Bulgari Spa with an adjacent fitness centre, yoga pavilion, and a private library will be available for guests to use at leisure.

A high-end retail experience will also be on offer, as the resort will include a carefully curated Bulgari boutique and La Galleria, a concept store where a selection of artfully niche design items will be available for purchase.
