Bulgari Resort Ranfushi set to open in the Maldives in 2025

The Bulgari Resort Ranfushi, meaning Little Gold Island in Maldivian language, will be located in the Raa Atoll of the Maldives archipelago. Surrounded by pristine waters and framed by lush, landscaped gardens, the resort will spread over 20 hectares. The 54 key resort will include a Bulgari Villa on a separate exclusive island, 33 Beach Villas each with individual swimming pool, 20 Overwater Villas and a full range of luxury hotel facilities.

“We are particularly proud to have secured such an extraordinary location for the new Bulgari Resort Ranfushi, as the Maldives are a key dreamy destination for our clients from all over the world,” said Jean-Christophe Babin CEO, Bulgari. “We are convinced that this new gem of hospitality addition will ensure once again the highest levels of quality and innovation to our international customers and we look forward to sharing with them the Bulgari values in hospitality at this new, very exclusive location.”

Designed by Italian architectural ACPV Architects, Bulgari Resort Ranfushi will introduce to the Maldives the uncompromising contemporary style that characterises all the Bulgari Hotels. For all the hotels, the approach is the same: the design of the interiors is strongly rooted in the traditions of the place, and careful attention is paid to every detail in a tribute to absolute luxury.

The Bulgari Resort Ranfushi will feature four distinctive gastronomic experiences: the renowned Italian Il Ristorante – Niko Romito, curated by the three Michelin starred Chef Niko Romito, the Chinese fine-dining Bao Li Xuan, twin of the two Michelin stars restaurant at Bulgari Hotel Shanghai, Hōseki, the Japanese concept already present at Bulgari Resort Dubai and the Italian beach food of La Spiaggia.

The resort will also offer a Bulgari Bar, the Bulgari Spa with an adjacent fitness centre, yoga pavilion, and a private library. Additionally, the resort will also feature a highly curated Bulgari boutique and La Galleria, a concept store where guests can find a selection of top niche items from international designers.

Integrating its statement luxury with social responsibility is key to the brand as Bulgari believes in innovating the present for a sustainable future through its commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility and giving back – to nature and to the community. With this underpinning the development, the resort will be incorporating the highest standards of environmental sustainability, including a new island made to host nesting bird population.
