The ultimate beach break
Objectively one of the most luxurious retreats in the world, this Maldivian paradise offers the ultimate beach break.
All-villa, all-luxury, this special resort enjoys 6km of pristine coastline and no fewer than a dozen picture-perfect white sand beaches. Instantly Instagrammable and completely unforgettable.
This is a natural playground, so whether you’re after a day of simply relaxing or are keen to get active, you’ll be spoilt for choice.
Charter one of the resort’s signature private yachts to get a real taster for the Maldives. Design your own itinerary and let the captain and crew handle the rest, as you enjoy snorkelling, swimming, dolphin-spotting, island-hopping and sublime dining.
Visit ClubOne for sporting pursuits including tennis, beach volleyball and an outdoor climbing wall.
For something a little more relaxed, there are 44 hectares of tropical island paradise here to explore, either on foot or by bike. Ask your butler to prepare a gourmet picnic for you, and spend a day discovering this beautiful hideaway.
At One&Only Reethi Rah, a vast world of flavours means there’s not only something for every taste, but you could eat a meal from a different part of the world every night of your stay. Local ingredients are often the stars of the meal, so whether it’s a Middle Eastern feast or an Italian favourite, you get a taste of the Maldives every time.
A choice of over seven culinary offerings means choosing what you don’t want for dinner is the most difficult part of your day. You can’t go wrong with the exceptional cuisine on offer here, but we particularly recommend the live teppanyaki stations at Tapasake for those who want a little theatre with their meal, and catching the glorious sunset at the open-air Fanditha.
Private dining is also highly recommended here – there’s simply no better way to celebrate a special occasion, or simply being on holiday! Indulge in a menu completely tailored to you on a secluded and private sandbank for the ultimate in desert island luxury. Or, take to the treetops and dine amongst the rustling leaves and a thousand fairy lights as you enjoy a delectable seven-course menu at the treehouse.
This really is the ultimate family holiday. Spend time together snorkelling, cruising alongside dolphins or getting creative at the superb Art & Pottery Studio (talk about a unique souvenir!). Alternatively, head out to explore via catamaran, on a shark safari, aboard a private yacht charter or on a big-game fishing expedition.
One Tribe provides a dedicated service for teens with competitions and organised activities, while KidsOnly offers a daily changing schedule of fun for kids aged 4 to 11. There’s no such thing as boredom at One&Only Reethi Rah, so little ones will truly have a whale of a time, whether they’re building beanbag forts on the beach, discovering a new world at dress-up time, learning to make their own sushi or creating a masterpiece at the art and crafts station.
Take to the water
This is an island after all, so it’d be a shame to stay on land the whole time. The SPLASH Water Sports Centre offers a seemingly endless list of watersports for you to try – including windsurfing, flyboarding, kitesurfing, jet-skiing and paddle boarding. The waters here are as clear as anywhere in the world, so dive right in… and speaking of diving, this is a PADI Gold Palm Resort, so divers will be in paradise.
It’s impossible not to relax in this jaw-droppingly beautiful Indian Ocean setting, but One&Only Reethi Rah leaves nothing to chance, offering a curated menu of holistic treatments, therapies and wellness facilities designed to renew and refresh.
Just some of the unique facilities here include the gorgeous Spa Courtyard with its hydrotherapy beds, and the innovative Water Shiatsu pool. The Wellness Visiting Practitioner Programme means the world’s leading experts are on hand to guide you on your journey of wellbeing, whatever that means for you.
Find the motivation you need with a morning workout at the ocean-facing fitness studio – there’s nothing like a Maldivian sunrise to get the blood pumping! Or, take advantage of the serenity in the air here with a yoga session at the overwater pavilion for the most inspiring views.
Inspiring Insight: For a bit of extra romance, we recommend the one-of-a-kind couples’ suite at the One&Only Spa, complete with a private ocean-front bath and a fully customisable Couples Collection spa menu.
