“Wonderful resort”
Reviewed 22 February 2012

Flight with Sri Lankan airline was excellent, good service good food, good entertainment, on arrival Male and change over to local flight to Reethi went like clockwork, beautiful flight over islands...very exciting. Dhow from seaplane to Reethi with company of the Hayes & Jarvis rep was short but very pleasant and gave us an excellent view of Reethi. Our rooms were garden view villas with open air showers (fabulous) and they were massive, very private, no view of the sea from 132 or 133 but we were at the beach or the pool bar(2minutes walk away to both) all the time, it was like having our own private bar as only a few rooms over this side of the island, water bungalows were a bit further up and had another bar. Service throughout was excellent, food was excellent in fact we really couldn't find fault with anything. Would recommend going half board if you are not drinkers, the all inclusive package was extortionate and did not justify the extra money for lunch and drinks, we were half board our companions were AI (thats my only complaint). Highly recommend Reethi and will endeavour to return as do many of the satisfied people we met while we were there.

Room Tip: Garden view villas are fantastic, try for one of these if you value your privacy, beach villas are l...

Just returned from the most amazing two weeks. Perfect Island. Could not have asked for more. Stayed in a water villa which is so special but if we went back might look into other rooms to save money as all the rooms looked great to be honest. But walking down steps into the crystal clear sea.. just amazing. We moved water villas from 225 to 210 as wanted to be able to walk straight into sea (225 went onto rocks) they moved us with no problems at all. We loved watching the lemon sharks in the morning in the shallows.
AI was definately the way forward... I hate thinking about money on holiday... food was great never boring, ate in Reethi Grill one night but didn't feel need to do it again as were hapy with main restaurant.
Weather beautiful apart from one day of rain - played table tennis and still snorkelled!
The reef is super... loads to see. Did two snorkelling trips turtle reef and coral garden... both amazing.. different corals and fishies to the house reef and excellent guides. Can't fault this Island at all, we were so relaxed and sad to leave, it is such a chilled out island. You will love it!

Room Tip: 201 - 212 watervillas to walk down onto sand not rocks

Stayed last week of jan and first week of feb, and loved it
Second time to Maldives and first at Reethi and definitely not the last

Location is perfect, surrounded by 3 small deserted islands, 35 mins by seaplane

Beaches are as you would expect, crystal clear turquoise warm water full of colourfull fish

Staff are brilliant, friendly and very helpfull

Food is very good, we went b&b and made the right decision as we ate in the grill and Moudou bar every night and worked out cheaper then going all inclusive of half board
It's also nice to have the freedom to eat at different places and not just the main restaurant

The rooms were also spot on, as we at first were in a garden villa for a week which was huge, too big for two and although it wasn't directly on the beach it was only an extra 10 steps away
We then moved to a beach standard room which is the most basic accommodation that you have on Reethi, that was also fine, king size bed newly decorated, modern outdoor bathroom, Sony LCD screen with satellite tv, not that you would really care, because as as soon as you open the door you were on the sand and saw the sea through the trees just a few metres away

The island itself is really well kept, and all pathways are constantly swept for leaves, when walking though the island it feels like your in a jungle, with huge palm trees and mangroves everywhere you look.
For 2 weeks the only thing that went on my feet were flippers on a couple of occasions

The house reef is brilliant, while there saw thousands of different fish, Dolphins and turtles, sting rays, sharks, octopus

We went on a couple of snorkelling trips, which is worth it just for the boat rides
We also went to a deserted island near by with a catamaran, and also went to one of the two sandbanks that are only a few miles out which

All the trips were fantastic

Not much more to say really, top resort in paradise, going again next year (touch wood) met some great people aswell who are regular visitors and after visiting once I can see why
It has one of the highest amount of repeat visitors in the maldives and for a reason

As most people do, we did a lot of research before booking our week at Reethi Beach. We have previously visited two other Maldavian Islands which were both very good so we did consider it a bit of a gamble to try somewhere different and were worried about being dissapointed. We needn't of worried, Reethi Beach exceeded our expectations in every area.
We stayed in a water bungalow which had direct access to the sea and the house reef which was very good, huge variety of fish and coral. A must do is the dolpin trip, we saw lots, and the Robinson Picnic toThiladhoo with its amazing house reef. The technical tour is also very interesting and not to be missed. The staff are extremely helpful and nothing is considered to be too much trouble. Nothing could have made our holiday more perfect!

We did lots of research before choosing Reethi. It was a wonderful experience and the best part is the politiness of staff. The sea plan transfer was immaculate as we could see tiny beatiful islands. The moment we reached at Reethi, the staff took care of everything from luggae to paper work to even clicking some initial pictures for us. We were taken to our villa in less than 15 minutes followed by a quick induction of the resport. We went in November and I snorkelled for the first time but there was no live coral as such, may be due to the time of month. There were numerious fishes and it was heavenly. Besides, the food is simply amazing. I mainly ate at Main bar and also tried Saima Garden which is a must for honeymooners. It was very romantic. We also tried Modhu Bar which offers great views of sea and tranquility as it is just above the sea. I am definitely going with 5 stars. Although there were some minor glitches with respect to the room quality but then again it was well worth the price we paid.

We spent fourteen days at Reethi Beach Resort and loved every single minute of it, even while we was sleeping we loved it, dreaming about the wonderful colourful fish we had seen, the powdery white sand and the unforgettable sunsets. Everything was perfect, the staff need a special mention, friendly and always smiling, the amazing water villa we stayed in, the amazing meals we had in the Reethi Grill and the very special meal we had in the Saima Garden, romantic boutique-style restaurant, with just five tables, located next to the beach a very memorable night.
We upgraded to all inclusive at resort form B&B, and this option was perfect for us, it included two trips, the sunset cruise and a visit to two islands which are inhabited by about 500 local people. We also booked a dolphin safari, on a speedboat with just another couple, what an amazing one hour; we must have seen at least 100 dolphins, well worth it. We also enjoyed the stingray feeding every night at 6pm. If like us you are pondering over which resort to stay at, and have narrowed it down to maybe 2 or 3, my advice is pick Reethi, you want be disappointed, from the moment you step of the ferry, you will realise instantly you have made the right decision in choosing Reethi. You can walk around the island in 20 minutes, the sheer beauty of the beaches is the first thing that strikes you, then you will go either for a beer or food, then the genuine friendliness of the staff will leave you feeling overwhelmed and the house reef will make you forget all your troubles and you will imagine you are in a different world when the fish and turtles drift pass you in the clear sparking turquoise waters. This was one of most amazing two weeks of our lives, relaxing and just chilling to the sound of the waves lapping up against our water villa, to the dolphins and sharks we seen, to the white powdery beaches and the staff. Amazing!!

Room Tip: Water villas to west (201 - 215) you will have a view of the sunset, and not as many rocks in front...

This was the 2nd part of our 2 centre holiday, 1st being Sri Lanka and then 7 days at the Reethi Beach Resort, and we loved everything the holiday offered. The staff at the hotel were brilliant, Asadh and Aimee in the restaurant, Mohamed, Benny etc in the main bar, these are to name just a few. All staff were very polite and attentive, always had a smile for you and you didn't want for anything. We arrived on a Thursday and that same evening there was a beach cocktail party where the management introduced themselves to the guests. The drink was flowing and there was canapes also. We was staying in a Water Villa room 202 and the sunsets were fantastic. The rooms are massive and it was lovely going to bed at nights and having the patio doors open listening to the waves. The food in the restaurant was brilliant, and one evening we went to the Moodhu restaurant for a special meal, and I must say it was well worth it. The restaurant we found was very romantic as the restaurant was at the end of a jetty over looking the sea. The island is absolutely lovely, it was paradise!. White sand and cystal clear sea. The snorkelling was amazing. The fish feeding at 6pm daily is something not to be missed. From the time the boat took us to the island to the time we left to go home shoes/flip flops didn't go anywhere now our feet at all, but then again the island is known as the barefoot island. We will definately go back and there is no doubt about that at all.
