One&Only Reethi Rah Testimonials

Hi Melissa,

WOW what a trip!!!
The One & Only is truly an experience and I cannot say enough positive things about our experience, from the service to the food options, excursions all top notch. Really!

1) Loved all the food options, we never felt limited
2) The service was AMAZING, honestly they anticipate your every want and need, and really made a special effort for us being on our honeymoon. They did a private romantic dinner for us on our last night, butler a drew bubble baths, really just such nice touches.
3) Concierge service was a real plus and our concierge was able to manage all reservations, excursions, etc.
4) We went on the “Turtle Adventure” snorkeling excursion which I was little ‘iffy’ about but it was incredible. The guide was so wonderful and although it was cloudy (and a bit cold), it was magical. She was so knowledgeable and I’m so glad we did it.
5) LOVED that each villa came with a bicycle, it was SO fun for us to ride around the island each day discovering new areas and lagoons to swim in. Really awesome.

Also, I’m really glad we did the water villa it was a really cool experience and something that was definitely on a must-do list for us. However if we were to do it again, we’d probably opt for a beach villa.

Thanks again!

Opulence, exclusivity, indulgence, those are just some of the things you are bound to experience whilst restoring your body and mind at one of the most fashionable addresses in the Maldives; welcome to One&Only Reethi Rah. Lightfoot Travel’s Melissa’s eyes still twinkle whenever she reminisces on the time she spent there. What did she love? Read on to find out.

Describe the journey from Male to the resort aboard their luxury yacht

The transfer from Male airport to the hotel is truly a cut above the rest! The ride aboard their yacht is far smoother than any of the speedboats I’ve been on, fully air conditioned, very comfortable seats, impressively stable wifi connection, outdoor and indoor decks, upper and lower decks… I could go no. In a nutshell, it’s fantastic!

One&Only Reethi Rah is quite an extensive and spacious resort. Tell us about all its facilities. Any must-try activities?

The resort is indeed very spacious as it is built on a reclaimed island. Their main purpose is to provide guests with an array of activities, which they have achieved brilliantly. It’s impossible to have a dull moment at One&Only Reethi Rah, whether you are a kid looking to play or an adult looking for entertainment. The resort boasts 12 beaches with a great beach club and activities range from pottery making, art classes to rock climbing. Those looking to work out during their holiday will be in gym heaven with their state of the art gym with outdoor boxing bag. Follow that up with their daily complimentary high tea – yum!

I particularly love their 30 minute complimentary photo session – such a great way to let clients immortalize a fantastic holiday.


How about for kids?

Kids will have an absolute ball at the kids club, which boasts multiple sections, a water slide, great playground and of course oodles of activities to delight even the fussiest of kids. There are actually two Kids Club: KidsOnly which is for children between 4 and 9, and OneTribe for children between 9 and 11. They’ll have loads of fun learning to make sushi, going snorkelling with a marine biologist, taking dance and pastry classes, going on a treasure hunt and so much more. Their programme made me want to be a kid again!

Teenagers have not been forgotten and they also have a club, called ClubOne where 12 to 17s can socialise and enjoy a wide range of activities.

What’s the general atmosphere and design of the hotel? Tell us about the room you stayed in.

Very plush, luxurious and chic while retaining the warmth of Maldivian service and culture with lots of gorgeous wood throughout.

Two words come to mind when describing rooms: spacious and private. Although there are 128 villas on the resort, guests will never feel like they are lacking space and privacy, quite the contrary; their rooms are among the largest in the Maldives and each will fit a family easily. I particularly liked their bathrooms which are beautifully done up with generous His&Hers amenities. All their scents and bath soaps are created especially for the resort – very elegant.
