Maldives – One&Only Reethi Rah

Maldives - One&Only Reethi Rah

This glamorous, design-conscious resort is one of the biggest in the Maldives’ North Malé Atoll. The 124 villas, built from natural materials such as teak, mahogany, rattan, coconut shell and thatch, are dotted all over the island, some on the six kilometres of private beach, others on stilts over the ocean. All are decorated in a chic, contemporary-Asian style. There is a range of dining options, including Asian-fusion cuisine at the Reethi Restaurant and contemporary Japanese dishes at Tapasake. Other facilities include an ESPA spa and a PADI dive centre.

X-factor The Grand Water Villas with Pool, built on stilts over a lagoon, have covered outdoor terraces and split-level verandahs as well as 20-square-metre pools.
