Embark on a Journey of Transformation This Easter at the Ritz-Carlton Maldives, Fari Islands

Throughout the week, guests from across the globe will indulge in Easter traditions with a taste of adventure, creativity, and holistic wellbeing.

Hosted by the resort’s Ladies and Gentlemen plus masters of the craft, a festive programme will see guests of all ages inspired and satiated. From Easter egg hunts to festive feasting, workshops for sweet connoisseurs will explore the culinary mastery of the Italian Colomba cake and the discovery of chocolate at the bean-to-bar class, with a chocolate breakfast table at La Locanda starting the celebration of chocolate at sunrise. For innovative Asian flavours, the IWAU saké pairing is the Japanese dining experience of a lifetime, and at a Maldivian village night, the resort’s Beach Shack presents the local delicacies of paradise. 

Unleashing creativity with seasonal spirit, guests can enjoy the mindful benefits of crafting, from painting, pyrography to egg decorating for family fun. Combining life’s finest pleasures, a sunset sip and canvas painting experience celebrates one of the world’s most coveted vistas with the finest libations.

The holidays will embrace a plethora of active adventures, including the Ambassadors of the Environment festive program. Guests can dive into awe-inspiring night snorkelling, an Easter ocean safari to discover the atoll’s diverse wildlife above and below water, coral planting and mind-expanding shark encounters. For keeping active, a tennis retreat will ace fitness and aerial hoop classes take movement sky-high. 

The highlight of transformation will welcome New York-based meditation practitioner and contemplative guide Kirat Randhawa. In daily practice, Kirat will guide guests to approach life through a contemplative lens. Guests will explore the nuances of integrating contemplative practices into modern life while Randhawa shares practical tools for self-care. On a journey of self-discovery, transformative sessions and empowering wellness practices will be themed to include – cultivating stillness, igniting and welcoming reflection, inviting expansion, practising reinforcement and deepening integration.
