The Emerald Collection Opens Second Luxury Property: Emerald Faarufushi Resort & Spa

The Emerald Collection announces the opening of its second Maldivian 5-star luxury property in Raa Atoll: Emerald Faarufushi Resort & Spa.

Aldo Scarapicchia, Partner and Managing Director of The Emerald Collection, expressed that they are “thrilled to consolidate our presence in the Maldives with the opening of Emerald Faarufushi Resort & Spa.”

“The new property will allow us to offer an integrated experience for international guests, with 80 additional accommodations between Beach and Water Villas, 70 of which have private pools. All our villas have been designed to comfortably host both couples and families with children. In fact, our new resort is also home to the Dolphin Kids Club, a space where younger guests can really play, learn, have fun yet feel independent under the watchful eye of our multilingual professional educators.”


The new Emerald Faarufushi Resort & Spa is located on an intimate 7-hectare island, just 20 minutes by boat from the group’s first property, Emerald Maldives Resort & Spa. Both resorts are members of The Leading Hotels of the World, and offer The Emerald Collection’s high-quality, signature Deluxe All-Inclusive service formula, as well as the opportunity for guests to island-hop in the Maldives and experience two luxury properties under the same brand.

The Emerald Collection was launched in 2013 and it is an Italian 5-star luxury owned group led by the Scarapicchia family, which boasts over 40 years of experience managing luxury all-inclusive properties in the Indian Ocean, the Caribbean and East Africa.


Their group renewed its focus on promoting sustainable tourism by implementing green practices both operationally and for the guest experience at the 100% plastic free property, and they have been notably tackling environmental issues with different projects such as the coral farming initiative at their resorts.
