We spent a perfect week at Reethi Beach Resort. The start was not quite as we expected as our seaplane was cancelled and so we were told that we had been booked onto a domestic flight to one of the larger islands and then had quite a choppy boat ride in the dark to Reethi. However, once we arrived to a charming welcome and were give a cold towel and refreshing drink we never looked back. Reethi is an absolutely wonderful island which has everything you would expect from a Maldivian island – white sand, turquoise sea, sun, fabulous house reef, exceptionally friendly staff and great food. We were compensated during our stay for the cancelled flight which was a lovely surprise and luckily did get to experience the sea plane on the way home !
We stayed in a water villa which was first class and had the most amazing views – it was airy and spacious, had a really comfortable king size bed, large modern bathroom with bath and shower and was cleaned beautifully twice a day. The deck was peaceful and private, and we spent many happy hours relaxing in the sun during the day and having a sun-downer, watching the sunset in the evening. The deck was also a great place for breakfast when we treated ourselves to room service ! The steps lead straight down into the sea which was perfect. We chose Reethi for it’s house reef amongst other things and were certainly not disappointed – we saw huge numbers of different fish, rays, octopus, turtles, sharks – it was fantastic.
We had our own sun loungers on the beach next to the water villas and never once put on a pair of shoes or flip flops while we were on Reethi.
We opted for half board and the food was excellent. We usually ate in the main restaurant where there was an extensive choice every day, but also in the Moodhu restaurant and the Reethi Grill where again the food and the service was first class. The bar staff were all so friendly – we enjoyed the ‘water-villas’ bar, the sunset bar and the pool bar.
We would thoroughly recommend the “interiors” tour where you are taken behind the scenes to the ‘village’ in the middle of the island to see the kitchens, desalination plant, food stores, staff accommodation etc. It was a real eye-opener to see how much hard work goes into making this such a perfect resort – and that is exactly what Reethi is. It is great value, it’s beautiful, welcoming and very relaxed – we had the most wonderful time and cannot recommend it highly enough.
We had been dreaming of going to the Maldives for many years but were never quite sure if we could afford it and were confused by so many different resorts. We knew that if we did get there it would be a ‘once in a lifetime’ trip so wanted to make sure we made the right choices. During hours of research we came across a recommendation for Angelfish Travel so decided to give them a call. This was the best decision we could have made. They were so friendly and their knowledge of each resort was incredible. They spent a long time finding out exactly what it was we wanted from our trip to make sure we made the best choice. We said we wanted a relaxed island with a laid-back atmosphere, an outstanding house reef and we wanted to stay in a Water Villa (all within our budget) and they suggested Reethi Beach Resort. We could not have been more delighted not only with Reethi but with the service which we got from everyone at Angelfish, especially Jo and Caroline – they truly did enable us to live the dream.
