Amid the tropical magic of the Maldives, there is a place of spectacular beauty, that seems to have been designed by nature for the ultimate romantic holiday. The One & Only Reethi Rah — Reethi Rah means “beautiful island” — is formed in a unique octopus shape that creates 6 kilometres of glorious coastline, with endless azure bays and white sand coves. Nowhere else in the Maldives is there a resort with so much space, privacy, glamour and style.
The incredibly long coastline means that all 130 villas — some of the largest resort villas in the world — enjoy direct access to the lagoon. Generous exterior spaces include beach verandas, private swimming pools and huge over-water decks, and indoors all rooms feature lofty ceilings, and bathrooms with large stone soaking tubs designed for two. All are built to ensure the utmost privacy.
The culinary variety at Reethi Rah is amazingly rich, with the main Reethi Restaurant, with its spectacular settings, offering the theatrical sensation of a cathedral or temple. Fanditha, hidden in the northern tip of the island, has a name that means “magic” in the local language, and provides a romantic Middle Eastern experience, with Arabian tents suspended from palms, carpets in the sand, and trees draped with white sheets, while the spectacular over-water Tapasake serves fresh fish and seafood, Japanese style. For the ultimate romantic meal, you can dine privately on a secluded sandbank.
