Our stay at the Rihiveli resort was an unforgetable paradise. The General Manager Bruce Bowan was always at our disposal, making our holiday a dream come true! All the staff and Bruce were friendly whilst proffesional at all times. The food was excelant! different every day and the "No news no shoes" is a fantastic way of life.

Rihiveli is a unique place. With its always friendly and helpful staff to the fun activities, you would never want to leave. There is also the fact that your surroundings feel quite natural as there are also two other islands surrounding it which you can go by walking, swimming, canoeing, etc. Then there is Juliet(Mascot bird) and Iguana.There is also...

Our family of five spent the festive season of Christmas and New Year in Rihiveli. Before coming to Rihiveli we didn’t take the motto of the island “No shoes, no news” literally, but after almost two weeks with no shoes or sandals, our feet felt like they have never felt. The only “shoes” we wore the whole time were the... More

We happened to visit the resort on our Maldives trip as part of resort hopping. Lovely property. Huge, spread across acres. Great, great staff. Food is strictly french / European, and mostly non vegetarian, so vegetarians..bit of caution there. We did a lot of water fun here in the ocean. The resort provides small canoes for the guests to row... More

As a child I dreamed of sailing to an uninhabited island with a coconut tree, white sand and blue water. In Rihiveli I found it all.
