Rhythm & Vibe collection designed to your energy
Breaking the mould of the Maldivian resort is Patina Maldives, Fari Islands, whose zero-waste, energy-positive practices and biophilic, Brazilian-Modernist design puts it at the forefront of eco-conscious luxury. Thatched roofs and gold taps are out; a James Turrell-designed art pavilion, earthy, soft palettes and cleverly concealed in-villa control panels are in. And while the ultra-contemporary marina and Studio MK27-conceived Beach Club resonate with urban cool, the resort never loses focus on why you’re here. Every detail, from the Bassam Fellows, Vitri and Paolo Lenti furnishings, the spa’s dreamy sensory deprivation tanks, and the window systems that open exquisite two-storey villas to the elements on three sides, has been pored over with your comfort and relaxation in mind.
Modernismo by the beach
Earthy palettes, matte surfaces and functional, geometric designs have been brilliantly adapted to the needs of honeymooners and flop ‘n’ droppers here, with cool in-villa gadgets such as integrated control panels and concealed device-charging compartments. Just bathing alone is a delight, with twin vanities carved from Nero Marquina marble, bespoke Italian porcelain tiles and alfresco free-standing double bath tubs. All villas have private pools and spacious outdoor terraces, with an indoor-outdoor concept achieved by a floor-to-ceiling window system that opens the space to the elements on three sides. The two-storey, three-bedroom beach houses really take the biscuit, with huge, split-level outdoor spaces including a sunset-facing terrace and lush gardens.
Every beach or water villa comes with its own private pool flanked by Dedon-furniture-dotted terrace spaces
With every whim taken care of, there’s no pressure here: expend zero energy or fill your hours with activities galore – it’s your call. If you do venture beyond the dream-bubble of your villa, a fine place to start is the Marina Village where yachts from neighbouring islands moor up to take advantage of Patina’s exceptional choice of restaurants and drinking holes, the epicentre of which is the Fari Beach Club. Browse the boardwalk boutiques such as modern men’s outlet the Rake or take in the ambitious art installations at James Turrell’s skyspace pavilion. You can get active, too, of course: bikes, snorkelling sets, stand-up paddle boards and kayaks are all available to borrow for free. Plus, as part of the resort’s extensive sustainability commitment, the first eco-minded kids’ scuba-diving lesson is free per child.
