The Ritz-Carlton Just Opened Its First Resort in the Maldives and We’re Packing Our Bags

Ritz Carlton

The Ritz-Carlton has long since been known for its extravagance. The hotel chain currently has 108 luxury hotels and resorts in 30 countries and territories—and has just added its first resort in the Maldives, a gorgeous independent island country in the north-central Indian Ocean.

May we just say: Holy cow.

While the Ritz-Carlton is a leading brand in luxury accommodations, we don’t know if we’ve ever seen luxury quite this…luxurious. Truly, it’s unreal.

Let’s start with its lodging options: When you stay at the resort, you get your choice of a private overwater room above a lagoon or a beachfront villa with direct access to the island’s white-sand beaches. Can you really go wrong with either of those choices? Both options will also include a large sun decks and infinity pool overlooking the water.

While you can spend all day relaxing in your amazing room, the resort also has its fair share of activities as well. Choose from local drumming classes to get your music on, bike safaris for adventure and tennis lessons for something sporty. Plus, a fitness center is on site as well in case you want to get a workout in as well.

Traveling with kids? The Ritz-Carlton is family friendly, with activities like treasure hunts, drone cinematography lessons for tikes, and more.

So what’s the catch? Why not pack your bags and go right now? Well, prices begin at $1,500 a night for a one-bedroom villa, which includes a butler at your beck and call 24 hours a day to bring you anything you’d like. So it may be a bit steep for a quick getaway.

Additionally, one of the most expensive options will cost you $22,500 a night, where you’ll stay in a 16,000-square-foot estate with three bedrooms, an outdoor kitchen, a private chef, and a second private pool, all on its very own a private beach cove.

While having your own chef sounds amazing, you can also learn to cool the Ritz-Carlton way by taking advantage of cooking classes. And of course, we can’t forget the amazing on-site restaurants for all the local fare.

You’ll truly live the lavish life when you vacation at the Ritz-Carlton in the Maldives. Learn more about what’s offered and book your stay here!
