One&Only Reethi Rah, Maldives
This stunning resort is the original grand-dame of the Maldives and oozes luxury, sophistication and elegance. This is where you head for subtle beach glamour rather than a barefoot vibe – a favourite amongst the celebrity crowd; you can expect the ultimate in luxury and service. Arrival is aboard a luxury yacht that takes 75 minutes from Malé.
One&Only Reethi Rah
It’s impossible to go wrong with the accommodation here, the resort boasts 129 villas sprawled lazily along a swathe of glorious white sand or suspended above the aquamarine waters of the lagoon. The magnificent Beach Villas occupy their own stretch of sand (all positioned well apart for lots of privacy) with mesmerising views, private terraces and outdoor showers perfect for cooling down after a day spent in the sun. Expect sleek clean lines from the décor and a picture-perfect exterior of thatched roofs and tropical wood.
Some of the Beach Villas come with their own private pool as well. The equally opulent Water Villas are perched over the lagoon and accessed via walkways from secluded points around the island. Breezy split level verandas have netted ocean hammocks suspended from the deck – perfect for ‘overwater’ sun-worshipping!
Not surprisingly, the culinary creativity at One&Only Reethi Rah is unsurpassed. Choices include the eclectic Reethi Restaurant, offering a clever fusion of east-meets-west, contemporary Japanese cuisine at Tapasake or the ‘chill-out’ ambience of Fanditha with its divan-bolsters and Arabian carpets in the sand – as you can imagine, magical evenings linger well into the night. Graceful island chic is the unofficial dress code so don’t forget your cool, floaty numbers for romantic nights under the stars.
One&Only Spa is a luxuriously heavenly island space and an altogether memorable experience. Skilled therapists, trained in the refined arts of ancient healing and modern science, will massage and pummel away your worries in luxurious treatment villas. Whilst the spa is a tranquil spot, there is plenty of activity elsewhere should you desire. And of course, this is an Indian Ocean paradise for water lovers with sensational snorkelling, diving and a plethora of water based fun.
