SINGAPORE—Capella Hotel Group has introduced a new brand to its portfolio—Patina Hotels & Resorts. The lifestyle brand was created for progressive travelers of a new generation. Patina Maldives, Fari Islands will be the first launch, while properties in Ubud, Bali, in Indonesia, and Sanya, China, are also in development. Patina is one of two unique brands under Capella Hotel Group.
Born out of guests’ desire to honor individuality, Patina Hotels & Resorts is a response to the continual flow of life, morphing to accommodate guests as they go about their routine without intermission. Inspired by independent minds with an appreciation of culture and community and a devotion to the well-being of the planet, Patina Hotels & Resorts encourages guests to nurture a deeper connection with themselves and the world around them. The social spaces flow with the natural modes people are in, gently and intuitively providing for each guest’s individual needs, ensuring that no two stays are the same, according to the company.
Set to open in Q4 2020, Patina Maldives was designed by Brazilian architect Marcio Kogan. The resort will have 90 beach and water villas, ranging from one to three bedrooms. Accompanying the villas, the resort will also have 20 Fari Studios.
Located in the North Atoll of the Maldives, Fari Islands is home to island artistry—an elevated Maldivian destination that celebrates nature, craft and connection. Patina Maldives will be situated on the island that forms the heart of the social destination: the Fari Marina is built around a Beach Club, with boutiques and a variety of handpicked, upscale food and drink options. Guests of Patina Maldives will enjoy freedom of movement across the islands, which gives every guest the choice of privacy and seclusion or a vibrant social center.
Nicholas Clayton, CEO of Capella Hotel Group, said, “Patina Hotels & Resorts will become a new leader in progressive hospitality. Focusing on creating a seamless experience, the brand is refreshing, dynamic and modern, appealing to the blended lifestyle of today’s curious and conscious consumer. We look forward to bringing the Patina vision to life when we open Patina Maldives later this year.”
