One&Only Reethi Rah lives up to its name: it sprawls across its own island, and has the Maldives first PADI National Geographic dive centre, climbing wall and sun spa.

Surrounded by the Indian Ocean, One&Only Reethi Rah is set on one of the largest islands in the North Male Atoll with beautifully secluded beaches and a wonderful feel of exclusivity and privacy.

The recipient of several prestigious awards, with the most recent including in ‘The 100 List in Asia’ in World Travel Magazine and the ‘Top 100 Hotels in the World 2018’ in Elite Traveller, the resort is high luxury while also offering some of the most facilities and dining options in the Maldives. 

Rooms: One Hundred & Thirty

Location: North Male Atoll



Divine dining

Reethi Restaurant has plenty to admire besides its menu: carved wooden doors, flourishing frangipani reflected in the overwater pools and, when the sun sets, lanterns flickering romantically. 

Breakfast is a creative à la carte affair – highlights include huevos rancheros and crêpes with wild berries and ricotta – and for lunch and dinner, the menu leapfrogs between Asia and Europe. Tapasake (dinner only) serves modern Japanese dishes featuring fish from the Indian Ocean: expect succulent sushi and sashimi, lobster gyoza, black cod and the ilk; at fanciful Fanditha, Mediterranean classics get a Maldivian spin. Puff on shisha pipes, post-meal. 

The hotel’s roster of dining options (eight in total) includes the Beach Club at ClubOne and the Chef’s Garden, a candelit patch of the vegetable garden, designed with intimate dinners in mind. The food at the latter is fresh and healthy: grilled and steamed dishes such as yellowfin tuna tartare and fish or vegetables with an infusion (lemongrass and curry leaves, or coconut oil, garlic and lime). No meat is served at the Chef’s Garden.

Room service
The 24-hour room service spans the full restaurant menu; there’s a special selection just for little Smiths, too.

Sip & Savour

Refresh your inner pirate with vintage rum at Rah Bar, by the swimming pool. The breezy open-air pavilion feels relaxed by day; boozy, fruit-filled concoctions, chilled champagne and live music take things up a notch by night. 

ClubOne is one of the liveliest spots on the island, with all-day DJs, kids playing and adults enjoying cocktails and conversation. Stake out two of the white egg-shaped chairs dangling from the palms, or hunker down on the huge bean bags. 

Toast the sunset from Tapasake, lit with traditional Japanese lanterns.

pool serenity

Three to choose from: a dazzling infinity pool that cuts into the lagoon and overlooks neighbouring islands; a family-friendly pool shaded by trees and punctuated with mini hammock-toting islets, and a pool attached to the kids club, with a slide, shallow areas and even little sun loungers. 

There’s also a vitality pool attached to the impressive Espa spa (which also has steam rooms and saunas and a saltwater Watsu pool), plus 12 immaculate beaches at your disposal (we love pretty Turtle Beach best, which is positioned in the middle of the island, with easy access to all the facilities).
