“No where better”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012 via mobile

We stayed at the Reethi Rah in early October and was our 5th trip to the wonderful island. It is a home from home for us.

We have stayed in many top hotels around the world, including other O&O resorts, but there is no doubt that this is the best of them all. We've booked our 6th visit for next year and will continue to return each year.

The food is as good as, if not better than any top restaurant in London. The service is unbelievable - nothing is too much trouble. The kids club (first time we've used it) is second to none, including the babysitting service. The spa is great too.

The villas on the beaches are so private and rarely see other guests. It is worth noting that the resort isn't for those looking for a lively holiday, although there are several bars which remain open till late. Highly recommend the private beach dining experience under the stars. Very expensive but highly enjoyable and a nice romantic touch to your partner!

Well done to the GM Mark and his team. We cannot wait to return.

The experience at Reethi Rah is unforgettable. From the Spa, to beach activities to food quality to service quality. Especially worth a mention is the kids club. I have not stayed elsewhere in the Maldives, and probably will not, as I will go back to Reethi Rah

From location, to the people, to the perfection in details, to the quality of service. EVERYTHING in this place is spectacular. Although VERY expensive, this place however exceeded our expectations in EVERYTHING they provided. NOTHING was average or below average. The SPA was simply a continuous journey of pleasant surprises, the room (water-villa) was also very comfortable, serene & peaceful. The beach is very clean & has beautiful sea-life. We were very blessed to have privacy as well. There were also life-guards roaming by the beach, as well as on a speedboat checking the area frequently. The food was delicious. The idea of having a villa host just added to the quality of the place. Christina was our host, and she was GREAT. She definitely elevated the quality of our stay. We literally had to worry about NOTHING. She even took care of unpacking/packing our bags! Everyone working here had great courtesy. I got sick on my first two days, they managed to reschedule our plans, as well as bring us medicine (according to doctor's prescription) for free. We appreciated that.
Two notes, pictures & stories don't do this place justice, its better than that. Secondly, it's expensive, but worth it.

Room Tip: WATER VILLA, especially if you're aiming at privacy

We just returned from a week in paradise...........
The One and Only resort Reeti Rah exceeded of our expectations.
The island and resort itself are spectacular and the activities available are fantastic.The water sports facilities are excellent and very well organised by informative and highly trained staff.
All the staff are very helpful , very friendly , very proffesional and made our holiday very special.
This is a top class resort with with the staff to match , they obviously were all very proud to work in the resort and consequently their attention to detail really added to our wonderful experience.
The beach villas are luxurious and very private ideal for chilling.
The food is excellent in quality and menus are wonderful.
We can't wait to return.

Seems to be slipping, key staff leaving and some unhappy, not impressed by new GM, he managed to speak to us briefly on our last day, kids around when they should be in bed, more guests who know the cost of everything and value of nothing.Drinks now silly prices.

This review is written as a warning to the uninitiated. The island is relentless in extracting money for the smallest detail. It's like going on vacation with an ex-wife. Whatever they quote you for the room, at least double it.

The positives are that the hotel or island, whatever you call it, is spectacular. Service is great for the most part. Lots of fun, which is why we have been back despite not feeling completely clean in conscience when we leave.

Negatives are value for money - horrible - and waiting for buggies which never seem to come.

Room Tip: Get a two bedroom "villa" or bigger and get a private buggy. This helps ease the pain of b...
