Such and extraordinarily special place. It was our second time at Reethi Rah and it just gets better! All the staff were incredible and compliments the beautiful surroundings. There is something magical about how everything comes together at this place. Can’t wait to return!

WOW is the only word to describe this place.. We stayed in a water villa with pool and also beach villa and has to be one of the best on the planet! Not cheap but you get what you pay for! Would recommend to anyone looking for that little bit extra!

We are just about to leave this stunning island after 9 days of pure relaxation. So many activities, the most amazing kids club (the best we have ever experienced by a long mile) and top notch food. It was our 2nd time at Reethi Rah and this time was even better than our first stay in 2009. I can recommend to anyone who wants to visit a true tropical island with their family. We travel intensively and and this holiday is up there with the very very best. Our Villa Host, Nasih, was excellent and sorted out whatever we asked of him. Just 2 slightly negative points from me. Having gone fishing in 2009 and caught 2 sail fish, a barracuda and a wahoo it was disappointing to spend USD 3K and only get a couple of tiny tunas. It was more wasting half a day on a boat than the money. Also the guests playing loud music in the villa next to us (Metallica and Techno :-) may annoy some but is just about bearable to us.

Words cannot describe this amazing experience! We were met at the airport by Hussein and led to a beautiful yacht that took us to the resort. The yacht crew was very professional and we enjoyed fresh juices and teas during the transit. Upon arrival we were warmly greeted by Waheed who graciously took care of us throughout our 8 day stay. The island and resort was fairly large yet extremely private. We often went the whole day without seeing anyone on Turtle Beach which was across from our fabulous water villa. Waking up every morning to the most crystal blue water I have ever seen was so relaxing. Wow, what a way to start the day! The villa was tastefully decorated and very comfortable. Each morning we had room service deliver coffee, fresh fruit, juice, and muffins. We did not have lunch so all food reviews are from dinners. Our days were spent relaxing on the villa deck and of course swimming in the insanely blue water. In the evening we relaxed on our villa deck and watched the gorgeous sunset while sipping champagne. After sunset we dined at one of the 4 amazing restaurants. We did not engage in all the activities they offered only paddled boarded one day but honestly were content to just relax, swim and soak up the sun and the scenery!! My friend did enjoy a scuba trip and I snorkeled separately. The reef and marine life are not to be missed! VILLA CONCIERGE I cannot say enough good words about Waheed! His world class service surpassed our expectations everyday. I was honestly so happy to see him everyday with his calm demeanor and infectious smile. He checked in on us several times a day, handled all requests immediately and came to see us each night at dinner no matter where we were dining. He is truly a jewel! VILLA ATTENDANT Shiham was so great! He took such good care of us! He was warm, discreet, professional, and had impeccable attention to details! We absolutely loved him! It was obvious that he takes such great pride in everything he does. He is definitely an asset to O & O! VILLA DINING SERVICE We ate in our villa one night and it was so delicious and relaxing that we decided to do it again! The staff came in and set everything up beautifully. We cannot thank you enough for your attention to detail. Thank you Nizam, Majid, Nadheef, Pato, Hussein, Mohammed, Hameed, Haseem, Ashfa, Shauya, Rifa, Sana, Irene, & Team for all the personalized In-Villa dining experiences! Thank you Nadheef for your exceptional hospitality and for coming to our departure with a beautiful gift – we were so touched by this! FOOD & BEVERAGE Although the food and service at all of the restaurants was world class my absolute favorite was Fanditha. The beach location, décor, staff, and food was incomparable. They have a Middle Eastern theme and cuisine and it was honestly hard not to eat every single bite of the delicious food prepared by Chef Dani. One night. while dining on the beach. it started raining and the team swept in and had us moved to another table protected from the elements in seconds. Thank you Chef Dani & Team for the special Indian & Mezze dinners! Thank you Dumi, Raj, Sharhan, Emmy, Inthi, Vishaam, Gandhi, Chef Dani, Niham & Team for all the special evenings on the beach at Fanditha! We ate at the main restaurant on our first and last night. The location, view and Thai food was excellent! Thank you Ayaz, Ismael, Reehan, Alto, Mohammed (Duri), Ziya, Hamzat, Prithvi, Raj, Farid, Hambe, Chef Pitam, Fittey, Lajos, Naseem, and all the Reethi Team for all the beautiful dinners at our special table!!! Fittey – thank you for all the details and personal service! Thank you Emmi, Huey, Darlene, & all the hostess team for your warm welcomes in the restaurants. You are all amazing! We only ate at Tapasake one night and the food was delicious. The ambience was great and we enjoyed seeing all the sharks! Thank you Shappy,Halu, Thiru, Ayami, Rubeen, & all the Tapasake Team! Botanica was a lovely restaurant and I love the farm to table concept. We loved our starters and amuse-bouches. Thank you Joseph, Aandhu, Sharif, Rafi, Reisa, & Fittey! Thank you Manik, Spidey, Gandhi, Nasrul, Widi, and all the Sommelier Team for another fantastic wine journey! We really appreciated all the time you took to ensure our wines were opened early to breathe, kept at the perfect temperature, and transferred between restaurants! ADMIN Special thank you to Eleonora, Dheena, & Maryna for making our stay so special with all the details and special requests you organized for us! SPA If you want to completely Zen out look no further than the spa. The staff and atmosphere was the best I have seen at any resort. I thoroughly enjoyed my massage and body scrub in a private open air room on the beach. The day I left I had the Reethi facial which left my face feeling hydrated throughout the 28 hour trip home. Make sure you arrive to your treatment ahead of time so you can enjoy the pool , steam room, sauna, and beautiful outdoor garden. Thank you Andike, Richie, Tri, Heppy, Natt, Swarni, Ariana, Hana and all the wonderful spa team for your most gracious hospitality! ARRIVAL / DEPARTURE We deeply appreciated the hospitality of Hussein, Soja, Thoha, and all the wonderful airport team! The yacht crew was amazing! Thank you Rayyaan, Madgi and Team! ROOM FOR IMPROVEMENT I heard there used to be dimmer switches in the villas, it would be great if you could bring them back. The natural light is fantastic and having a dimmer would allow guests to slowly turn up the lights as the sun goes down. The sound system in the villa could use improvement. The speaker sound is shoddy and if you turn it up to hear it while sunning outside the speaker vibrates and sounds terrible. A small table between the loungers on the villa sun deck would be very useful. It would be great to have live music you could dance to at the bar. There was one band, De Tune, that played great dance music, more music like that or a DJ would be appreciated. A dance night after dinner on the beach at Fanditha would be awesome! Overall our whole stay was amazing! Thank you to all for a great experience.

We have just returned from spending an amazing week in paradise at the Reethi Rah for our honeymoon. It has to be one of the best places in the world to relax and enjoy a level of seclusion you would normally only expect on your own private desert island. The service was impeccable and beyond our expectations. We are definitely coming back. Thank you for making our week with you feel so special.

We went there for our honeymoon and we could not have chosen a more beautiful place to go. We were welcomed at the airport and taken by private yacht to the Reethi Rah island. Our check-in was done at our private villa on the beach and was very smooth. Our bags were unpacked and all our things put into the wardrobes. Our Beach Villa was very spacious and clean with a wonderful private beach. The layout of the Beach villas was such that you felt completely on your own and it was so private. We also had our own little section of beach. Our room was cleaned every day and every evening there was a turn-down surface. Little touches like different fruit each day just added to the whole experience. Throughout our stay the service and attention to our every need was taken care of by all the staff. We must make a special mention to Gizem who was our personal "butler" during our stay. We could call her at any time and she made the arrangements we wanted, like booking restaurants or any excursions. She always came over to say hello when we were having breakfast and always gave great suggestions for things and restaurants to visit. This personal touch by the One & Only really made us feel special. The food at all the restaurants was amazing, from the Lebanese at the Fanditha to the Italian at the Reethi. Breakfast also had so much choice that no matter what we tried it was delicious and fresh. The Spa was a truly unique and relaxing experience. Not only the massage treatments but also the surroundings, which we could enjoy all day were so relaxing and therapeutic. All-in-all the One & Only Reethi Rah was a once in a lifetime experience and some where we can't wait to visit again. Thank you to all the staff for making our honeymoon so special and memorable.

This is my second time in this resort. From the airport to the resort the organization was flowless. The grand beach villa with pool is very well equipped and you have all you need. The japanese restaurant is a must. From room service to spa/gym from all different beaches to beach in front of our villa was perfect. There is no such a thing as better side of the island as it all depends to the wind but in general all the beaches are excellent.

The most wonderful place on earth. Paradise. Everything and everyone equals amazing. Faultless in every respect. Roberto our villa host was truly exceptional and he made every day unique. This was our fourth visit to our island heaven and we will hopefully return next year.

Our first time visiting Maldives was unforgettable. We enjoyed every single second of our stay at ONE&ONLY Reethi Rah. On our arrival at the beautiful island, there was a big surprise. We truly appreciated it. The Grand Water Villa was simply amazing !!! We enjoyed most beautiful sunset from the Villa every day. It was extraordinary experience swimming in a private infinity pool and relaxing in a warn jacuzzi at the Villa with a breathtaking view. All the staff was very nice and kind with friendly smiles. Especially we are grateful to a wonderful butler, Tek. He was attentive and helped us during our whole stay. The food was delicious from the Room Service to Restaurants. The quality and taste of each food were excellent. We enjoyed romantic dinner on the terrace of restaurants. The massage at the SPA was great too. Peaceful private beaches and an incredible infinity pool on this island were spectacular. Our very first experience of snorkeling was well supported and unforgettable. We got on a speedboat and snorkeled in a beautiful sea, swimming with turtles and manta ray, then visited the sand bank - a tiny sand island in the sea. It was an incredible adventure ! We will definitely come back to this Paradise again. Thank you very much for an extraordinary stay.

My very first time going to the Maldives even though I must have heard of it for over 3 decades, the photographic view of the water villa with pristine pure white sandy beach on advertisements are simply unforgettable. When we got was past midnight local time - the 3 of us including our 15 year young daughter went thru hassle free customs and we all looked at each other thinking: what a breeze from touchdown to luggage was like maybe 10 mins. And then we got greeted by the Reethi Rah hotel airport greetings team with a wide friendly smile!!! Yes! Our vacation started....then we walked like 3 steps and saw this beautiful white massive yacht right in front of us...again we glimpsed at each other thinking: this is going to be Great! Onboard...immediately the pampering starts...welcome drinks and snacks on the luxurious yacht. The staff on board was informative, very friendly but not too chatty yet so accommodating and relaxing. The hostess went up with us to the top deck despite it being so dark and windy. Our daughter wanted to feel the fresh Maldivian air. After the short and...we don’t want to leave the 40 min boat ride...we approach Reethi Rah. With again friendly team members waiting to welcome us. After the welcome the personal butler assigned to the villa drove us to our villa with the buggy. The team are all very friendly and professional at the same time. When he opened the villa door we were in AWE - supercalifragilisticexpialidocious awesome! We just felt this is going to be a special journey. After trying to zen down our excited veins and senses with the table full of local delights, fruits and handmade beach shoes chocolate...we went to bed intentionally (per our daughters Jade request not to open any curtains so we can get that instant jolt of heavenly feel tomorrow - more like in 4/5 hours. At 7ish in the morning we woke up and Jade said we need to get ready and put on our favorite swimwear to meet our private beach in front of the villa. It’s the most Beautiful View we ever set our eyes on. Our heartbeat probably stopped for 3 seconds.... #Pureluxury #BlissBlessmoments #Familylove#Bonding #Bestholiday #Heavenly We love every moment, my favorite spot was the sunset at Fandhitha, our daughter Love Love the snorkeling and jet ski experience -beach time afternoon snacks sooo Yummyyyyy - it’s different from any other resort we have been. In fact the whole family absolutely loved Reethi Rah - which means Beautiful Island in Dhivehi as we were told. So Appropriate all the photographic advertisements of Maldives are all true and in fact Reethi Rah’s photos don’t do all its true beauty justice ...we were delightfully surprised that we feasted ourselves totally in every sense and experience at this place!
