Reethi Faru Resort joins Preferred Hotels alliance
Reethi Faru Resort, a new resort in the Maldives, has joined the Preferred Hotels and Resorts alliance.
Reethi Faru is amongst the 35 new hotels that joined the independent hotel brand in the first quarter of the year.
“Whether looking to experience South America, China or a multitude of destinations in between, travellers can now enjoy #ThePreferredLife while staying at distinctive independent properties in even more exciting locales around the world,” the company said in a statement announcing the new members.
The world’s largest independent hotel brand, Preferred Hotels and Resorts represents more than 700 hotels, resorts, residences, and unique hotel groups across 85 countries.
To help ensure the highest levels of customer satisfaction, Preferred Hotels and Resorts holds its members to The Preferred Standards of Excellence, measured regularly by anonymous on-site inspections conducted by professional experts. Additionally, Preferred Hotels and Resorts monitors members’ guest feedback and online reputation with a powerful, custom-built reporting dashboard.
Reethi Faru opened in December.
The four-star plus resort, developed on the remote island of Filaidhoo in the northern Raa atoll, can be reached by a scenic 45-minute seaplane flight from the main Velana International Airport or a 20-minute domestic flight to Dharavandhoo domestic airport followed by a 30-minute speedboat ride.
The island, which measures 600 by 350 metres, offers 150 well-furnished, homely and spacious detached and semi-detached villas built in traditional style and that blend perfectly with the natural beauty of the environment. The unique setting – amid tropical foliage, fringing a long expanse of powder soft beach or on stilts over the clear blue lagoon – will make every guest wish to stay on and on.
Reethi Faru, which means Beautiful Reef in local Dhivehi language, has numerous restaurants to cater for everybody’s tastes, while its poolside bar and beachfront bar invite guests to linger.
Along with a stunning white sand beach, a house reef just 30 to 80 meters from shore, coconut palm groves and lush vegetation, the resort offers a wide range of recreational facilities, including diving, water sports, tennis, squash, badminton, a gym, an aerobic room as well as a spa to pamper your body and soul.
Reethi Faru is owned and operated by Mahogany Pvt Ltd, the company that runs the four-star Reethi Beach Resort in the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve of Baa atoll.
