One&Only Reethi Rah

Lying in the Indian Ocean is an exclusive destination awash in shades of teal and indigo with sunlit sky. Formerly known as ‘King’s Island’ where the ancient royal dynasties ruled, today this special place is called The Maldives. Inviting blue lagoons, coral ring-like atolls, and soft white sand are synonymous with this destination. However, over time, The Maldives has also become synonymous with luxury resorts, that excel in the exceptional. The One&Only Reethi Rah, is perhaps the most famous of them all, and with good reason. This superb all-villa resort offers an unrivalled level of style, truly unique experiences and endless activities for all.

Reethi Rah, which means “beautiful island” in Dhivehi is surrounded by the wonders of the sparkling Indian Ocean. Elegant, luxurious, and stylish the One&Only Reethi Rah epitomises five star luxury. This fantastic property is comprised of 130 private villas discreetly placed along the shore – with 98 Beach Villas secluded by lush tropical greenery, and 32 Water Villas floating above the crystal waters of the turquoise lagoon. Each and every villa at the One&Only Reethi Rah is detached and spacious providing the utmost privacy for guests. Designed with contemporary elegance in mind, each villa has been created to celebrate the natural beauty of the island. From the thatched roofing and tropical wooden exteriors, to the use of natural materials in each villa such as coconut shells, sea grass, and silk, you will undoubtedly be impressed by the quality of each element within the villas. The spacious layout accounts for a stylish bathroom suite, complete with a deep bathtub and cascading shower. Generous exterior spaces range from beach verandas to private swimming pools and large over-water decks.

With an enviable location on one of the biggest private islands in the Maldives’ North Malé Atoll. This sprawling five star resort has twelve white-sand beaches.

Sample Maldives Holiday Itinerary

Day 1

Enjoy the complimentary speedboat transfer, or upgrade to a luxury yacht transfer to arrive at the One&Only resort in style. The total duration of the journey is the 45-50 minutes whichever option you choose. Enjoy an effortless express check-in as you make your way to your floating sanctuary of pure contentment and privacy. Each water villa mirrors the tranquillity of the ocean, boasting elegant design, and a light soothing colour scheme. Relish the enchanting views from your gorgeous private deck, and sink into your wrap around hammock suspended over the water.

Recover from jet lag with a quick power nap before taking advantage of the in-villa dining option. All-Day Dining is available from 10.30am to 10.30pm whilst overnight dining is available from 10.30pm to 6.00am, meaning that the service is almost 24 hours. From fresh caprese salads and pizzas, to russian selyodka and veal ossobuco, the options are endless here. After a delicious meal, you’ll be raring to go and full of energy. So explore the facilities, and make yourself at home. When you return to your water villa grab your snorkelling set and dive into the crystal waters. Swim out with your travel companion and try to see how many different types of fish you can see.  

For your first night visit the Reethi restaurant for dinner. Delectable and innovative, Reethi serves its own fusion of French, Asian and Italian cuisine. The dining space is split into three areas: Earth, Fire and Aqua. Menus feature an enticing mélange of favourite dishes from around the world using the finest and freshest ingredients.

Every Monday chefs at the restaurant present a mouthwatering selection of Italian charcuterie, homemade pasta, gnocchi, risotto, and delicious Italian desserts.

Day 2

After a fantastic first day, start day two with a delicious breakfast at Reethi restaurant. After breakfast, make your way to the diving centre for a themed dive! Themed dives are a fantastic way to spend a few hours at the resort. There are shark dives, turtle dives, and wreck dives to choose from. Wreck dives are perfect for those keen to pursue adventure. The wreck is a former tugboat, sunk by the dive school in 1988 at the house reef of Hembadu, southeast of One&Only Reethi Rah. It is close to the reef so the navigation to and from the wreck is rather easy. The boat is a focal point for marine life and is a fish-watchers’ delight.

Your personal trainer will guide you through a personalised health and fitness questionnaire followed by tests to assess your body composition, muscular endurance, stamina and flexibility.
