The stylish bunch and travel-trend-conscious have had the debut hotel of Capella’s new lifestyle brand on their radar for some time. There’s a fine balance between Maldivian peace and the Southern France party scene, a clear respect for nature is synchronised with all the mod cons and bare feet dance alongside high heels. This is somewhere they can connect with creativity and comfort, and it’s blatant that opposites attract here. But it’s Patina’s core ethos that unites the dichotomy – the aim to bring together the like-minded who venture to these parts to revel in isolation together.
Patina stands out in the trio it now makes with its neighbouring two resorts of the Fari Islands, not only for its Design Hotels member status – speaking to its ultra-luxurious palette, innovative amenities and intuitive service – but for its cutting-edge construction. With hints to his filmmaking background (think widescreen views and a particular attention to lighting), renowned Brazilian architect Maricio Kogan designed his latest feat with our natural conflicts in mind; celebrating the equilibrium we feel between alone time and bustling gatherings, the high-tech and the effortless, and self-indulgence and care for the community.
…a society of creation and culture. Every nation, no matter how different, portrays their identity through artwork. So the island aims to cultivate the creative potential of its guests and birth an identity of its own; especially through its collection of art and artist in residence. Forming a dynamic island culture that is a fusion of parallels and all together unique to Patina.
They say that children are the future, so it’s important to educate them on the future of our planet. In the Footprints kids’ centre, environmentalists-in-the-making are nurtured through interactive activities like recycling ocean plastic into 3D models; while budding chefs learn the benefits of locally sourced ingredients and plant-based cuisine.
With tactful technology coexisting with rustic simplicity, low-lying lines to avoid puncturing the horizon and biophilic architecture bringing the outside in, the villas and studios become sanctuaries of serenity. We enjoy the sunset facing lagoon villas, because there’s nothing more soothing than the illusion of the sun setting into your own infinity pool.
If your room is the place for solitude, then the Fari Marina Village and Beach Club are the places to be seen. The beating heart of the archipelago, guests from all three resorts flock here to dip in and out of the designer boutiques, sip an Aperol spritz while listening to renowned DJs on turn tables, indulge in Michelin-starred cuisine or move the party to the deck of a superyacht.
As Patina is all about human connection, we think there’s no better way to celebrate the company of one another than exclusively taking over part of the island. Up to 27 revellers can make the beach collection their home for a time with the beach house, six villas and a private stretch of sand all to themselves.
The Maldives has a hot, tropical climate with sunshine all year round. The most popular months to visit are between November and April during the north-east monsoon when it is dry with very little wind. Whilst there may be rain during some of the summer months, with ever-changing weather patterns and excellent offers, this is becoming an increasingly popular time to travel.
