Patina is a new offshoot of the Capella hotel group, and its first site will be in the Fari Islands archipelago in the North Male Atoll, a 50-minute speedboat ride from the main airport of the Maldives. The 90-room resort aims to offer two experiences in one: If you want to be social, hang out at the marina village with a beach club and boutiques, or hole up in romantic seclusion in one of the villas.


Rooms from $1,950 per night.
