We have just left O&O Reethi Rah after 10 of the most wonderful nights on the first phase of our honeymoon. I will write a much more in depth review of the resort on my return home - but in a nutshell this place is almost faultless. Its setting and location is simply breathtaking. We stayed in an opulent beach... More

My husband and I first visted O&O Reethi Rah in 2006 for our honeymoon and had the most wonderful time. I have already reviewed that particular trip. We were in the Maldives again this year, 2008, and decided to go and stay there at the end of our holiday, for a short 2 night stay - to revisit and bring... More

We booked the hotel through Atoll paradise, which I have to recommend to everyone... amazing service at atoll paradise, very helpfull, unlike the hotel. The hotel is superb, beautifull, service by staff is good and they try hard to accomodate your requirements, however the hotel water activities, i would have to say is disappointing. Either too expensive (4000USD to see... More

I have unfortunately to agree with the last five negative reviews. After our stay in Four Seasons Chiang Mai, Tented Camp in Golden Triangle and Amansara in Cambodia we were really disappointed about the unprofessional service, which we received in Reethi Rah. And there was nobody from the management to talk to! The hotel is really beautiful. I would say... More

My partner and I have wanted to visit this resort since it opened. For the most part, it is a fantastic resort. When we arrived at the airport in Male, we were promptly greeted by a O&O representative who whisked us off to the huge YACHT waiting for us. Yes, we were the ONLY two on this huge ship with...

We have just spent 15 nights in the Reethi Rah for our Honey Moon. I had become slightly obsessed with reading reviews on trip adviser about the Reethi Rah (mostly to reassure myself that spending the most money we will probably ever spend on a holiday was going to be worth it!) and had decided to dismiss the bad reviews...

Myself and my wife went to the O&O Reethi Rah and stayed in the water bungalows on a half board basis. Pro’s: There is lots of room in the water bungalows including excellent internal facilities including two wash basins and a dedicated vanity area for my wife to perform the evening’s pre meal rituals which she loved. The food was... More

Our family stayed for 8 days at this fantastic (but artifically designed) island. Unfortunately the island's management seems to be inexistent and profitability figures seem to be the only thing they care about. In most of the resorts (we have been 18 times to the Maldives) you get to know the resort managers. They come to the restaurants, meet, greet... More

Its a great property. Excellent location. The place is very clean and well kept. Visit only if you don't expect "any service". Their service level is very bad. The staff is not trained. Any information you ask for is not available. The response time could be hours to may be a day. Not value for money......
