Just arrived back from 2 weeks at reethi beach. We found it to be a lovely low key relaxing holiday. The resort put on a bit of entertainment most evenings but no noisy discos or anything like that. They played a bit of disco music one night but very low, one night had karaoke with few takers but good to watch, a spa demo and underwater film. Not everyone can dive or snorkel and the films show people the amazing underwater life in the Maldives.
The buffet food was varied and perfectly acceptable. We decided to upgrade to reethi select and didn't regret it. We could choose good wines and have waiter served meals in the 3 a la carte restaurants. We are not keen on up and down for buffets and this is our personal choice. We thought the upgrade from AI was good value and we had great food in each restaurant. The chefs tried hard to present their food well and perfectly cooked. The wait between courses were perfectly acceptable. We were in no rush.
The staff in all the bars and restaurants were first class. They remembered your room number and drinks and were always cheerful. They are a great asset to the island. Our room boy also did a fantastic job. We had no problems with the guest relations staff and found them all very helpful and friendly. I don't think it's a nationality problem but people always treat you with respect if you do the same. We had a slight delay on the return sea plane by 45 minutes but it wasn't their fault and they explained why and handed out bottles of water if we wanted any.
We had de lux villa no 150 which served us well. Big comfortable bed and plenty of storage along with fridge if required. The loo in the bathroom was undercover as was the sink and bath. Only the rain shower was in the outside part and even when it rained, our bathroom did not get wet.
The beach outside our villa was beautiful. We had 2 beds on our little terrace, a swing and 2 beds on the beach.
The dive school was professional and I must admit we didn't see any kids playing in the lagoon nor any water sports gong on but we did stay on the other side of the island.
We have been to lily beach before the refurb, vilhamendhoo before and after refurb and Thulhaagiri. Lily beach has upped it's prices quite a lot so won't go there again but like vilhamendhoo we would return without hesitation to Reethi Beach
We would recommend the technical tour behind the scenes. The work that goes on to cater for the tourists is amazing and we were very impressed by their work to produce energy and bottled water.
We had a lovely time an want to thank all the staff at reethi for all they do to make your trip there worth the long journey.
