One&Only Reethi Rah

One&Only Reethi Rah

Lying in the Indian Ocean is an exclusive destination awash in shades of teal and indigo. 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, seagrass, 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. The bright blue bays provide unparalleled access to the warm, clear waters of the lagoon, along with its cornucopia of colourful marine life. Furthermore, the resort is also home to the only PADI National Geographic Dive Centre in the Maldives, where a team of experts will be on hand to deliver a wide range of PADI-certified dive programmes for adults and children as young as 8 years old. All of this makes the resort perfect for diving and snorkelling enthusiasts, or those looking to try something new.

Sink into pure sensation with a Thai massage over the sea, or breathe in richly fragrant spices of a warm oil treatment, all under the expert care of therapists trained in philosophies both ancient and modern. The impressive One&Only Reethi Rah ESPA spa is worth visiting the island for alone and features an extensive menu of therapies and treatments: all personalised experiences based on one-on-one consultations, from relaxing and restorative massages to more modern body rituals.
