However, if there is something that you must really not miss at Patina Maldives, it is the Ceramics & Coral Conservation Workshop. Led by Oshin, the in-resort’s house marine biologist, the workshop guides participants in creating ceramic houses designed to stimulate coral reef growth in the surrounding waters. It’s a meaningful contribution to the resort’s conservation efforts, and the prospect of returning to witness the growth of these coral-encrusted ceramic houses adds an extra layer of excitement in thinking about seeing these ceramic houses in the future when we come by Patina again!

8. Be a part of a wonderful community 

Patina Maldives - wonderful community

The warmth of Patina extends beyond individual experiences; it permeates through their entire staff. From friendly management personnel who struck the perfect balance between friendliness and respecting our introverted moments, to the genuine and personable staff encountered throughout the resort, everyone contributed to making our stay enjoyable. The genuine nature of the interactions made us feel like we were among friends rather than staff! Working in the hospitality industry is undoubtedly demanding, but the team at Patina not only met but exceeded our expectations. 

Our stay at Patina was elevated further by our personal butler (known as Essentialists in Patina), Apiko. Always ready to answer our questions, he seemed to anticipate our needs with uncanny precision, offering buggy rides around the island just when we were thinking about it. We even jokingly speculated whether he had a watchtower somewhere, spying on us through binoculars! What truly impressed us was the modern touch of communication – no dialing for the front desk here. Instead, we connected with Apiko seamlessly through WhatsApp, a brilliant and convenient feature that aligned perfectly with our tech-savvy lifestyles.

If we were to encapsulate our Patina Maldives experience in a single word, it would be freedom. The resort offered us the liberty to explore an array of soul-enriching experiences, encounter exceptionally warm and kind individuals, and savour delectable cuisine that lingers in our memories. Our time here was nothing short of unforgettable, and we would love to experience it all over again.
