Just spent five wonderful days at Rihiveli with my two daughters. The resort, which is one of the first to be established in the Maldives, is located on arguably one of the most stunning islands in the Maldives. Its surrounded by a very large and beautiful blue lagoon, with two smaller islands opposite, to which one can kayak or walk. The resort itself is unpretentious and laid back, and their "no news no shoes" approach makes perfect sense if you want to escape the hustle and bustle of city life. The food is fantastic and the staff are awesome. Everyone was friendly and helpful, from the waiters in the restaurant, the staff managing the water sports to the guest relations staff. The bungalows have no TVs, but we got to watch the World Cup semi-finals with the staff in their recreational area, which was fantastic. We love this place and will definitely go back.
