The Pristine island, One & Only Reethi Rah


One & Only Reethi Rah is one of the largest luxury resorts on the Maldives and, although the island has been augmented to create its distinctive, the results are spectacular, even in the context of the natural paradise it resides. 


To channel the current, One & Only Reethi Rah is split down the center with a small bridge connecting the two pieces of land. It’s one of the resort’s most Instagrammed locations. Beneath the bridge, the crystalline water is as calm as a millpond. 


Hire a pedal boat from the watersports center and foot it to the house reef. You can moor to a buoy then jump in and snorkel about, spotting baby sharks, rays and all manner of tropical reef fish. 


The impressive KidsOnly kids club at One & Only Reethi Rah makes little ones between 4 and 11 feel just as pampered as their parents. There’s a mini pool with scaled-down sun loungers, tiny sun umbrellas and even a mini restaurant. The jam-packed activity calendar includes sushi-making classes, manta snorkel trips and a pirate day. 


Similarly, One & Only Reethi Rah resort's ClubOne Beach Club, on the southernmost beach, serves up Latin American fare with a side of unbelievable lagoon views. Go there for a Club 1 Bellini with peach puree and prosecco while the DJ spins chilled-out tunes.


Several manta ray cleaning stations are within easy reach (the season is December-April) from the resort. Additionally, the 1988 Hembadu tugboat wreck, in the Rasfari Protected Marine Area, is also excellent for scuba divers to explore. 



One & Only Reethi Rah Resorts’s most extravagant villa, the Grand Sunset Residence, offers more than 26,000 square feet of beachfront brilliance. In fact, it has the largest private stretch of beach on the island. With a hidden driveway (sealed off by an electronic gate), two swimming pools, an outdoor private cinema and a private chef, many guests never leave it for the duration of their stay.


There are a few ways of getting to One & Only Reethi Rah. This exclusive resort’s private (or a charter) seaplane will deliver you to One & Only Reethi Rah in just 15 to 20 minutes, but the 45-minute journey aboard the resort’s 56-foot luxury yacht has to be experienced at least once.
