Travelers looking for a new experience, romance, or just a break from the whole rat race of life will not be disappointed.

This superb island resort offers lavish living spaces with more than 150 sophisticated rooms, restaurants, and bars. Rooms here are simply furnished and finished off with iconic thatched roofs and the choice of accommodation varies from garden bungalows to beach and water bungalows. Nevertheless, each option is unique and memorable.

Reethi Faru Resort

What a beautiful project! 

Two Years ago, Mr, Vir Chopra, Managing Director of the Reethi Faru Resort, was the first to do the resort roofs with Fiber Palm Thatch.  Mr Chopra and his team made this decision after visiting and inspecting every synthetic thatch manufacturer in the world and only after his project manager Mr. Badeeu visited the fiber factory spending a week to study the process and application method.  

Jurmeirah Vittaveli Resort

Make a splash into the crystal clear lagoon from your own water slide and explore the magical marine world. Airy interiors with floor-to-ceiling glass doors and an extended deck with sunken seating and an overwater hammock.

This well-known and iconic water villa of Jumeirah Vittaveli Resort was a stunning project of ± 10000 m², the roof of these villas was done in another signature colour available in our Fiber Palm Synthetic Thatch Tile range.


COMO Cocoa Island is one of the more recent projects that we are proud to showcase here today! This small luxurious resort was reopened on the 9th of January 2020 following a short seven-month refurbishment. Fiber Thatch has never shied away from a short or constrained time frame. We understand time is money and so our product is not only quick to install but easy and hassle-free.

COMO Cocoa Island has 33-overwater villas inspired by local Dhoni boats that were refurbished in our Fiber Palm Ocean Synthetic Thatch Tiles. A beautiful finish that complements the design better than that of the natural palm used before.
