Recent guest reviews

4 nights so relaxing that it feels like 4 weeks. Everything is done with a love for excellence by all the staff, from food to diving, thru health club and all management team. 1 hour swimming with Mantha Rays as you won’t even dream of. Just do it!

I would like to thank everyone at The One and Only Reethi Rah for what has been the best holiday I have ever been on. Our concierge Soo Young looked after us brilliantly and we found everyone in the resort to be extremely gracious and helpful. The island and the resort itself are stunning. It feels so secluded and private. The water bungalow I stayed in was gorgeous and immaculate, it really couldn't have been nicer. The food in all the restaurants was great, although I would recommend the Japanese restaurant most of all. The villa dining food was great and I would also recommend the Pilates sessions I had with Mariana. The spa treatments were the best and the hairdresser was excellent. We really enjoyed the boat trip to look for dolphins and visit the sandbank, with the marine biologist. We were really blown away by the private birthday party on the beach which they organised for my best friend, Disa, it really was the best! I have stayed in some very nice hotels around the world, but this one stands out a mile. I would say that if you are on a budget, this wouldn't be the hotel for you, but it is known to be one of the most luxury hotels in the world, so the prices are in keeping with this. If your holiday budget is enough to stay in the best hotels, I would completely recommend this resort. We will definitely be coming back to this hotel, at the same time next year or at the end of this year. Thank you for a brilliant stay!

We were there with our small daughter and it became the best traveling experience we ever had. First of all villas: they are very morden and beautiful. The atmosphere is relaxing, the view is unbelievable. You are getting our own huge private beach. Services: it is difficult to understand how they found so many nice people, but I had a feeling that everyone was extremely friendly and open to communicate. Everyone wants to make your stay better. Honestly. The food: I put 3 kg. It is easy, you just can’t stop eating Activities: they have watersports center. I learned to wakeboard, that was much fun Dear friends, don’t miss the opportunity to visit that place if you have one.

An outstanding holiday location. It is the only place we go on holiday where we fill no need to do anything other than relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings and wonderful facilities. Service levels are of the highest quality.

Absolutely the most beautiful Resort we had ever stayed in. Food excellent, staff service exceptional, accommodation relaxing and beautiful attention to detail throughout the resort. Arrived ready to relax and celebrate our 39th wedding anniversary and left with a smile on our face and ready to book for our 40th anniversary next February 2019. Thankyou One & Only

Property, Service, Activities, Food, People were ALL Flawless. The resort were full of services, to all ages and to all liking (Not only water sports). Kids zone, daily football matches, hand crafts, shopping are just a small amount of things to do daily in the resort.

Been to a resort in Mexico with this group. We went in November for our honeymoon. Worth every penny!!! Pure luxury and relaxation. The service was incredible and so professional. We were worried that there wouldn’t be much to do but we were wrong. Tons of activity and excitement.

It is simply the nicest hotel I’ve been to! (I’ve been to many great ones). The staff is super friendly the island and hotel are paradise! It is incredible the amount of detail the pay to not having a single leaf out of place, a guy literally takes the beach every morning! The villas are incredible, friendly baby sharks and mantas swim in shallow waters next to your feet!The one flaw, the food is ok...

Management of this hotel only cares about taking your money. Listen to this story as it is REAL, painfully real. We booked our HONEYMOON with them in November and my husband had a pending visa situation so he did not have his passport to travel for the dates we booked. We kindly asked them to simply change the dates. After tens of emails and calls back and forth and literally begging them to understand our situation and saying I can't go alone in my honeymoon without my husband and that we saved a lot to go on this expensive trip, they finally agreed due to to penalise us 50% and give us a 50% credit to use within 3 months. So my husband got back his passport from Home office in January 2018. We booked 5 nights for the remaining credit with them. We went there end of January. The day we arrived, they told us only when we got there that the villa we booked was not available anymore and that they had a villa with 2 beds. 2 beds?? In our honeymoon? these people are a joke. Of course they got us into paying more money, namely an additional $ 500 a day. So we had to pay for a more expensive villa ( 2000 a night) just to have a matrimonial bed. My husband asked to speak with the reservation manager, Mr Rahul I believe - he never showed up to talk to us during our all stay... I have been to other One & Only resorts ( Dubai both of them several times - they have two resorts in Dubai, Los Cabos, Mauritius, Bahamas) and I was always happy with the customer service and the food. One & Only Reethi Rah has a fake service, mediocre food and they do not care it is your honeymoon. All they care is about charging you more and more. This is how they lose valuable customers: we spent more than 250000 for these 5 days plus buying expensive jewellery from their main resort boutique. The reason I gave them a second star is that because of this whole situation, we booked 5 more nights with another hotel - Cheval Blanc - which was outstanding! So: thank you One & Only for leading us to Coeval Blanc where we were treated as proper customers!

This place is like no other in Maldives! The quality of customer services, food, accommodation, facilities,etc. is million years ahead of the 5* resorts in Europe. We stayed on the island for a month and changed in to 3 different villas as we wanted to experience the different beaches. I must say each one of them had its charms and beauty and no matter how further away you are from the restaurants the walk/ bike through the “jungle” it is so lovely. We were with our 2 kids (6yo and 7mo) and they both had the best time in the kids club. We hired Annie from time to time as a nanny and she is so good hearted, gentle and entertaining. Thank you Annie and we hope to see you again one day!!! The Spa is one of the best in the world! Once you have been picked up by your therapist they discuss with you the style of massage you prefer, choice of oil, music (my fav was the Magic Carpet) and treatment. For me the best treatment was from Kinglee from Butang (I’m sorry if misspelled your name). She combined stretching, deep tissue and hot stones in the 90min, finished by amazing head massage with the ESPA scalp mud, which smells beautifully. Food - during our stay we tried the French, Italian, Asian, Arabs night, the BBQ on the beach and the food was amazing every time! The waiters are absolutely fantastic and nothing was too much trouble for them and the chef. Breakfast again was of very high quality with a healthy section that you do not see in other resorts. There is so much more I can say and praise this place for and I can truly hope we return there again (maybe for New Years night which I’ve heard is spectacular);) Thank you to everyone at the One & Only, you are special!
