Emerald Faarufushi Resort & Spa brings barefoot luxury to the remote northern Raa Atoll. There’s a real focus on simple indulgences here; the minimalist design is a delicate addition to the island’s natural beauty and there’s a fantastic house reef which is perfect for snorkelling. If all you want to do is as little as possible, head to the The Emerald Spa’s treehouse-style couple’s treatment rooms for an afternoon of indulgence and undisturbed relaxation.
Emerald Faarufushi Resort & Spa is so remote and secluded that you’ll rarely spot more than two, maybe three groups of people at morning breakfast. You will absolutely love the seclusion, privacy, and the feeling of having the entire island to yourselves. There is a genuine feeling of peace and tranquility on the entire resort. It’s really difficult to describe. You can walk around the island in about 15 minutes. At night, the entire ambience of the ocean and the restaurants literally steps away from the ocean, pool, and villas are truly magical and something only to be experienced and realized first-hand.
The team of Emerald Faarufushi Resort & Spa is the most important value of this new resort. Everyone is putting is heart to fulfill all guests wishes, every time with a big smile. Everyone working there genuinely wants you to enjoy yourself and they will go above and beyond for you.
