Bulgari is targeting the Maldives with plans for a new high-end hotel and spa
Bulgari Hotels & Resorts has announced plans to open its first resort in the Maldives in 2025.
Featuring a signature Bulgari spa, Bulgari Resort Ranfushi will be the 13th property in Bulgari’s hotel portfolio – a group owned by Marriott International.
The resort will be located in Raa Atoll in the Maldives archipelago and will span 20 hectares of pristine natural beauty.
Surrounded by clear blue waters and lush gardens, it will feature 54 rooms, including an exclusive Bulgari villa located on its own island, as well as 33 beach villas with individual pools and 20 overwater villas.
Jean-Christophe Babin, Bulgari Group CEO, said: “We are particularly proud to have secured such an extraordinary location for the new Bulgari Resort Ranfushi, as the Maldives is an important destination for our guests from all over the world.
“We are confident that this new gem of a hospitality venue will once again ensure the highest levels of quality and innovation for our international customers. We look forward to sharing Bulgari’s hospitality values with them in this very exclusive new location.
Like all Bulgari properties, Italian architecture firm ACPV Architects Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel will lead the design of the resort, which Bulgari says will meet the highest sustainability standards across the board.
The complex will also house four culinary experiences by Bulgari, a Bulgari boutique, La Galleria and the Bulgari Bar.
Having grown from a collection of three locations in Milan, London and Bali, the Bulgari Hotels & Resorts collection now includes properties in Beijing, Shanghai, Dubai and Paris.
In addition to the planned opening in the Maldives, four new Bulgari hotels are scheduled to open between 2023 and 2026 in Los Angeles, Rome, Miami and Tokyo.
Bulgari has been part of the LVMH group since 2011.
