The Ritz-Carlton Maldives, Fari Islands, proudly joins the distinguished ranks of the “50 Best Discovery.” Launched in 2019 by the experts of the 50 Best Academy, this travel and experience-focused platform highlights top-tier bars, restaurants and hotels worldwide. This prestigious recognition bestowed upon our resort serves as a testament to our unwavering dedication to providing exceptional experiences while upholding the highest standards of sustainability.

Sustainability at its Core

Composed of 99% ocean, the Maldives is a world of water with a colourful community of thriving marine life beneath its surface. Protecting the community—in the sea and on land—has been and continues to be a priority for the resort. From using solar energy to power, the property to restoring the surrounding reefs through our coral nurseries, our actions today help secure a better tomorrow.

Culinary Excellence with Seven Restaurants and Bars

Each venue offers a unique gastronomic experience, promising an unforgettable culinary adventure. Diners can enjoy a rich culinary landscape and travel the world on their palates, whilst feeling confident that every effort has been taken to ensure a focus on the highest quality, seasonal ingredients and with the environment front of mind. Experience the joy of a robust Italian espresso, share conversation over Cantonese tapas, toast to the sunset with a chilled glass of rose.

Architectural Marvel – Masterpiece Villas

Every aspect of the resort’s philosophy and design centres on the notion of totality and the true spirit of the Maldives. The resort’s minimalist circular architecture and the holistic philosophy of wholeness is one that the Maldivian culture and environment supports. The vision behind the resort’s iconic design, led by Kerry Hill Architects, is inspired by natural landscape of the turquoise lagoon and the swirling ocean breezes, embracing the circle of island life, with modern architecture meeting the Maldives. Interior and exterior design is humble, minimalist, and visually lightweight, leaving little impact on its environment and always maximizing views to the horizon and the connection with the elements.

The Ritz-Carlton Maldives, Fari Islands, transcends the ordinary with its innovative approach. The Masters of Crafts program, a distinctive initiative, welcomes chefs, musicians, artists, and various other talents to enrich the property and create bespoke experiences for valued guests.

The Ritz-Carlton Maldives, Fari Islands Welcomes New Executive Chef Leonardo Valls

Published

on

The Ritz-Carlton Maldives, Fari Islands is thrilled to welcome its new Executive Chef, Leonardo Valls. Bringing 20+ years of international experience and an eye for gastronomic innovation, Valls is set to elevate the resort’s culinary experiences with his creativity and craftsmanship.

Valls’ journey in the kitchen started in his native Chile, where he joined chef Tomás Olivera in 2003 at The Ritz-Carlton, Santiago, the brand’s first property in South America. During his five years there, Valls helped Olivera and the hotel’s Adra restaurant earn numerous accolades and awards, laying the groundwork for his next adventure. 

In 2008, Valls crossed the globe to join another Ritz-Carlton property, the Hotel Arts Barcelona, where he spent more than a decade as part of a highly celebrated team, led by acclaimed chef Paco Pérez. During his tenure, he helped the hotel’s Enoteca restaurant earn its first and second Michelin stars (2010 and 2013) and was named Executive Sous Chef of the hotel’s culinary division in 2016, overseeing operations for five restaurants, a central kitchen, and major international events including the Mobile World Congress. 

In early 2020, Valls was set to make another international move, this time as Executive Sous Chef of The Ritz-Carlton, Naples in Florida, but the pandemic led to a change in plans, prompting his return to Santiago. In 2021, opportunity knocked again with the entry of the legendary brand into the Maldives and Valls joined The Ritz-Carlton Maldives, Fari Islands as Executive Sous Chef.

After a year at The Ritz-Carlton Maldives, Fari Islands, Valls found his homeland calling once again. Armed with vast knowledge of the luxury culinary concept, he took his expertise to the AC Hotel by Marriott Santiago Costanera Center where, as Executive Chef, he infused his style with Spanish and other European influences. 

Renato De Oliveira, General Manager of The Ritz-Carlton Maldives, Fari Islands comments, “We’re thrilled to have Valls back in the Maldives, this time as our Executive Chef. His appointment is the start of a new chapter in an already illustrious career and an opportunity for guests to experience the world through Valls’ unique culinary perspective.”
