History: The Maldives has barely changed since ancient mariners first moored off its coral-fringed shores. Guests can island-hop to a nearby atoll where fishing villages continue as they have for hundreds of years.
Location: Reethi Rah is part of the North Male atoll, around 1 hour by speedboat from the airport.
Service: Enjoy superlative hospitality at the Reethi Rah, with personalized pick-up from the airport and round the clock service from a Villa Host.
In your villa at the One & Only Reethi Rah, it’s easy to feel like you’re in a far corner of the earth. The resort, which first opened in 2005, makes the most of the Maldives’ reputation as a perfect palm-trees-and-beaches tropical escape. Each villa is situated for maximum privacy and comes with an overwater perch or private beach access. There are four restaurants and bars with world-class menus and drink lists, as well as 24-hour in-villa dining. The excellent ESPA offers a wide range of holistic healing and beauty treatments, and includes underwater treatment rooms, couples’ rooms, a relaxation lounge, saunas, steam rooms and a Japanese-style onsen. There is a full service fitness center, every imaginable type of water sport, including big-game fishing and private sailing cruises on a fleet of beautifully maintained wooden Maldivian dhonis, and an open-air, overwater yoga pavilion. If in the midst of all this, you still must stay connected to the outside world, all villas are equipped with high-speed broadband Internet access.
