The Ritz-Carlton has just opened a gorgeous new property in the Maldives, the eye-popping destination for those looking to unwind and escape amongst white sand beaches and postcard-worthy views. And considering the last year, we could all use a getaway right now.

Reachable via a 10-minute seaplane ride from the Velana International Airport, it was designed by Australian architect Kerry Hill and hosts over 100 private stays circled around an impressively sized, oval-shaped spa.

Each villa at the Ritz-Carlton Maldives, Fari Islands resort features a private pool, as well indoor/outdoor showers, plenty of lounge space, and either direct beach access or a sizeable hammock hanging directly above the water. A personal butler is also on standby with plenty of activities to engage with: relaxing yet engaging drum performances at sunset, Maldivian cooking courses, beach cricket games, and even dolphin swimming.
