Amari Raaya Maldives, Amari’s second property in the Maldives, is set to open on August 1, 2023. Nestled in Raa Atoll, Amari Raaya Maldives is inspired by the archipelago’s lush nature and hopes to instill a castaway adventure in guests.

The resort experience is interwoven with the narrative of Seb, a shipwrecked artist who made the island his home. The resort showcases the remnants of Seb’s life, including his art studio, ship, and watchtowers that have been converted into private dining and star-gazing venues.

The 187-villa resort aims to position itself as a family-orientated destination. A handful of the beach villas can be connected to offer two bedrooms for families or friends traveling together.
