The resort will comprise 54 keys, including a Bulgari Villa on a separate exclusive island, 33 Beach Villas, each with an individual pool, 20 Overwater Villas and a full range of luxury hotel facilities. Raa Atoll is one of the most northerly and most visited atolls in the Maldives. It is separated from Baa Atoll by Hani Kandu, a 5km wide channel. Raa Atoll is nearly 70 km long and 30 km wide and has 88 islands, 15 of which are inhabited. It is 45 minutes from Malé airport (Maldives) by seaplane.
The Bulgari Resort Ranfushi will cover 20 hectares. The architecture will be in line with the refined and contemporary style of the brand's hotels, all of which are managed by the architectural firm ACPV ARCHITECTS Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel. It will feature Italian, Chinese and Japanese gastronomy thanks to the involvement of Michelin-starred chefs already working in other Bulgari hotels, such as three-star Italian chef Niko Romito and Chef Fu of the Michelin-starred Bao Li Xuan Chinese restaurant at the Bulgari Hotel in Shanghai, whose Cantonese cuisine is highly acclaimed.
The thirteenth hotel in the Bulgari Hotels & Resorts collection, it will open in 2025, following four other Bulgari hotels planned between 2023 and 2025 in Rome, Tokyo, Miami and Los Angeles.
