We have chosen Reethi beach for our honeymoon destination because it has many good reviews, it's far from Male that is good and it's surrounded by many deserted islands and sandbanks. This hotel offers reasonable prices in New Year period as well in comparison with other hotels in Maldives that may seem unaffordable in this period. We stayed in Reethi beach for 13 days (29.12 - 10.01.) It wasn't our first trip to Maldives. The first trip was to Lux Maldives (ex. Diva Maldives) that is in Ari Atoll in September 2011. The hotels are in different categories, Reethi Beach is 4 stars and Lux Maldives is 5 superior. I would like to mention that these islands are different in nature. Reethi beach has small palms, there are some toll palms but not so many as in Lux Maldives. I don't say that it is a disadvantage, but the nature is really different. The minus of Reethi beach is that the beautiful lagoon is closed with water villas and in order to admire it you should swim there but you can't lie and look at it because water villas will not allow you to do it if you don't live in water villa of course. (it is for lagoon lovers) As for the sand, here in Reethi Beach it may seem better than at Lux, it's softer, like powder. The island itself is wilder than Lux resort, it has more local Maldivian atmosphere. Lux resort is luxurious. In Reethi Beach the territory is quite plain, but it is clean. In Lux the territory is full of flouwers, even when you step to the island you feel aroma of flouwers, all the paths are immaculately clean and you see that a designer worked on all the decoration of the island. I think it's a difference of 4 and 5 stras resorts. As for water in Reethi Beach it is so pure, you can see reefs at depth. The Service in Reethi Beach is perfect, it is the same as at Lux. The food is amazing as well. We didn't eat at buffet, we always went to Moodhu Bar and Grill. It's fantastic. We are remembering grilled tuna and pizza since that time) As we were in New Year, we were absolutely surprised by the decoration of the island. All the paths and bars were lit up with lights. It was soo fabulous and romantic!The buffet on New Year was undescribable beautiful and It was full of delicacies like foie gras and etc. As for the room, we lived in Deluxe villa that seemed so small after the beach villa at Lux. Nevertheless, it was good and clean. Only one thing disturbed me on this island is that in our room there were cockroaches. In Lux there were some of them but here we saw them more often. Maybe it's because they don't fog the island every day as it is at Lux. For me it was one negative moment. As for sand bags on one side, yes, they spoil the view. Some villas have entrances on these sand bags, as there is no beach. Our deluxe villa was № 124 and it's a good location, good beach. What I also would like to mention, as it was our honeymoon we awaited decoration on the bed "happy honeymoon" upon the arrival but it wasn't there. We asked girls at reception to have it made but nothing was done. Anyway, we had beautiful decorations with flouwers of the bed as well free dinner at Saima Garden with a free bottle of wine and cake for my birthday. Everything was on a very high level.
The holiday was fantastic anyway, there are very good people, service, especially in Moodhu bar and Grill. On this trip to Maldives we managed to see more deserted islands and a sand bank that we reached by catamaran. We saw many dolphins. We have won a Gala dinner, it was the second price in lottery that was being played among all the visitors. The Gala dinner was on the deserted island with our private cooker, waiter and a man who made a bonfire for us. We had enourmous plates of dishes: meat, schrimps. It was very romantic and unforgettable! As we understood the service and food don't differ much at 4 and 5 resorts.
I wish everyone a fabulous vacation!!!
