One&Only Reethi Rah

Maldives, Indian Ocean

The hotel

Sail into your holiday in style onboard a luxury yacht or speedboat. One&Only Reethi Rah, literally translating to ‘beautiful island’, has over six kilometres of spectacular coastline, bursting with white sandy beaches, blue lagoons and private coves. The resort is awe-inspiring too, sleek and sophisticated with private villas, some with pools, some discreetly spaced along the shore and others on stilts above the ocean. The service here is exceptional — even the sand is raked each morning so yours can be the first foot steps as you step out! Water sports are all the rage or grab your towel and head to one of two swimming pools. For absolute indulgence, a visit to the award-winning One&Only Spa is essential. And if you’re travelling with children, they can be kept busy at the complimentary kids and teen clubs. Dining is a joy at the One&Only Reethi Rah. You can eat in the privacy of your own villa, ordering delicious dishes from several of the restaurants, but it’s always nice to head out. Feast on Asian, Italian and French cuisine at Reethi Restaurant, Japanese delicacies at Tapasake or stunningly fresh ingredients at Botanica, an al-fresco dining venue. In the mood for a party? Rah Bar is lively until the early hours as is Fanditha with its boho-chic seaside setting including divan bolsters and colourful Arabian carpets in the sand.

One & Only Reethi Rah is definitely my favorite hotel so far! It’s a short boat ride away from Male airport, and the staff that was there to receive us is extremely nice! Getting to the hotel you already see how spectacular it is and how nice and helpful everyone is. The beaches are amazing, with a lot of activities for the kids. The adults area is very quiet and peaceful. The villas are wonderful, private and modern. There are many restaurant options on the Island, for every type of person - we found the Japanese restaurant superb. The best hotel experience you can have! We only had a bit of bad luck with our butler (every villa has one), because she couldn’t really understand what we wanted and when we asked about extra activities and excursions we could do - we learned a little too late that there are many different and special things to do! Don’t forget to ask about them! Overall an amazing experience and great start to our honeymoon trip. Read less

We arrived at the airport and there was a cute little boat that came to pick us up. When i got in i knew the holiday would be great. When we got there, there were smiles everywhere and we got to meet the GM and they immediately showed us our room which was a water villa. The room was so clean and i loved it. They had 6 restaurants. Reethi restaurant(three sections ),tapasake(Japanese ),fanditha(Middle Eastern ),botanica,beach club and pool side(only lunch).they were all amazing but I recommend Tapasake. After 5 days they moved us to a beach villa(we booked half water villa and half beach villa)and when we got to out room they had moved all our stuff and it looked exactly like the last villa. Overall this has been the best holiday of my life and i am coming here again. Read less
