FARI FESTIVAL BY PATINA & RITZ CARLTON MALDIVES
On November 20, 2022, Patina Maldives and Ritz-Carlton Maldives hosted their first Fari Festival. The Fari Marina Village, where the first Fari Festival was held, was a short speedboat ride away from the Ritz-Carlton. Warm lights adorned the space, which was buzzing with anticipation as the artists set up their pop-up stores and the cooks created excellent cuisine ahead of the arrival of the guests.
Island Bazaar, Ogaa Beauty, Toddy, Thakethi Educational Materials, See from the Sky, Lanala Swimwear, Vilunu Essential Oils, and Rock Prints were among the local merchants at the Festival. In a section designated for children, there was face painting, a small wooden drum set, and lots of entertaining games like ring throw and paper plane toss.
The first Fari Festival lasted until 11:30 p.m. with spectacular music playing, excellent food served, and unique cocktails in the hands of guests. Calling it a success, additional similar events with more regional artists, artisan outlets, a variety of foods, and of course, a fantastic time may be anticipated at the island resort in the following months!
