A blissful tropical climate softened by Atlantic trade winds, pinkish-white, sugar-soft beaches, fabulous scuba diving, and laid-back catamaran cruises… These are just some of the fabulous experiences to be savoured in one of the Caribbean’s most popular and welcoming destinations - Barbados.
Stay at this A-list-approved resort in the Maldives
With an award-winning destination spa and truly exceptional service from personal butlers, the One&Only Reethi Rah set the bar for luxury properties in the Maldives when it opened in 2005. If you want to holiday like a superstar for a week or two at this iconic A-listers’ favourite, here’s what you need to know about this exceptional resort.
The all-villa accommodation
Villas at One&Only Reethi Rah come in a choice of stilted overwater and beach options, the former with split-level verandas with steps down into the Indian Ocean, while the latter open out onto their own stretch of sand. Many of them have private infinity pools for that added touch of seclusion.
Paired with the resort’s charming, rustic wood-and-thatch buildings, you’ll find clean-lined, contemporary interiors. The Residences are the largest, sleeping up to ten people in three bedrooms and are available with private chefs by request. One even has its own outdoor cinema.
The delicious dining
There’s dining at One&Only Reethi Rah to suit all ages, tastes, and moods; from private dining on the beach to field-to-fork fare at Botanica, based on 100% natural food and wine served in the chef’s garden. Split into three ‘settings’ of earth, fire, and grill, head to the theatrical, overwater Reethi restaurant with its French, Asian, and Italian dishes. Or try the spectacular pop-up restaurant Hoshi with its omakase menus and other Japanese favourites.
Elsewhere on the island, beachside Fanditha has authentic Middle Eastern cuisine and sunset views, the Beach Club serves salads mere steps from your lounger as well as being home to an ice cream hut, and the Rah Bar is for light, healthy daytime meals and evening cocktails.
The little extras
When you’re not relaxing beneath one of the Missoni-designed parasols (part of a limited time partnership with the iconic Italian fashion house) on one of the resort’s 12 powder-soft beaches, you can get active at the beach club, the dive centre, the climbing wall, or the FIFA-approved football pitch. Alternatively, improve your art skills in a class at the artist’s corner.
Don’t miss the award-winning holistic spa, which includes the Maldives’ first watsu pool (for aquatic massages), as well as relaxation gardens, 14 treatment villas, a yoga and meditation pavilion, a steam room, a sauna, a vitality pool, and a mani-pedi studio.
The resort also has three pools – one for adults, one for families, and one lap pool stretching out into the lagoon. Water sports are available at the resort, plus there are some amazing excursions run by the expert concierge team, including dolphin cruises and whale shark expeditions, private boat and yacht charters, and tailored fishing trips.
