The Ritz-Carlton Maldives, Fari Islands and Patina, Fari Islands are ushering in celebrations with the properties’ two-year anniversary. On May 25th, 2023 guests can join in the anniversary festivities at Fari Marina, where the resort will showcase its remarkable achievements and unwavering commitment to exceptional service, and reaffirm its dedication to providing guests with extraordinary moments that will last a lifetime.
The anniversary festivities will also include a momentous coral regeneration project, symbolizing The Ritz-Carlton Maldives’ ethos of preserving and protecting the marine ecosystem. The coral regeneration effort will take place in front of the marina, where a number ‘2’ shape frame will be planted as part of the commemorations. In addition to this, the resort will exhibit its various sustainability initiatives through a myriad of on-property programmes, offering guests a glimpse into the work of different departments.
The culinary team will whip up their own zero-waste cocktail, Dhonkeyo. The exotic cocktail is named after the banana in the local tongue and true to its name calls for an entire banana in the recipe. Likewise, the team will also bring another unique experience where guests will have the chance to make their own coffee scrub – a memorable souvenir to take back home. Showcasing conservation efforts further, the engineering team will host a solar panel demonstration on the property alongside a coral/ceramic display.
At Jean-Michel Cousteau Ambassadors of the Environment program, more sustainable endeavours will take centre stage which includes exhibiting their green bike, drone workshops and conservation initiatives that combat ghost nets. Adding an educational component to the anniversary celebrations, the resort will also be inviting local students to visit and learn about The Ritz-Carlton Maldives, Fari Islands and Patina, Fari Islands’ sustainability initiatives which will help to further inspire and educate the next generation of young leaders on the importance of preserving the environment.
To end the commemorations in style, guests will be delighted to an enthralling cocktail hour where an upbeat DJ and traditional Maldivian Boduberu music will rise the tempo after dark. This festive atmosphere will provide the perfect backdrop for guests to mingle, celebrate, and reflect on the resort's wonderful journey over the past two years.
