Paradise Found - A Perfect HoneymoonTom and Gaynor D, Manchester, United Kingdom
Dec 3, 2013
We spent 8 days at Reethi Beach for our honeymoon in November 2013. We spent a long time looking at the Maldives and chose Reethi as it was one of the smaller islands and we wanted ...
Read More somewhere quieter and more secluded and that's exactly what we got. We were impressed from the moment we stepped off the boat onto the jetty, the beautiful turquoise sea and the view of the whole island take your breath away. The island really is tiny, it takes no more than 15 minutes to walk around the whole island. We stayed in a beach villa for most our stay but upgraded to a water villa for our final night. The beach villas are lovely, especially the bathrooms which are part open air, which is great providing you don't mind been watched in the shower by a lizard or fruit bat! They are no more than 10m from the sea and are located the best side of the island for snorkelling on the house reef. Each villa has its own sun loungers on the beach so no need to rise early to put your towel out! For our final night we stayed in a water villa. The water villas are a little more luxurious but the biggest plus point is the view from the bed, looking out across the sea. Each water villa has its own balcony with sun loungers and direct access to the sea, the sea was a little choppy on the side of the island where the water villas were located whilst we were there, making access via the balcony difficult. The water villas are very private and ideal if you want to be alone. Personally we preferred the beach villas because you could just walk down onto the beach and they actually felt a little quieter as they are detached (the water villas are adjoined in 2's) you also don't get the noise from the sea as it's less choppy and further away than in the water villas. We also felt a little closer to things, not that the water villas are far away. The food is excellent, the main restaurant serves buffet food 3 times daily with a different theme each night. We never had a problem finding something to eat, normally the opposite we'd eat too much! We also ate at Moodhu bar which has a large selection of food from pizza to steaks. As we were honeymooners we got a free candle lit dinner at Samia Garden which was stunning, the perfect end to a perfect week. We spent most of our early evenings at the Sunset bar, a hut on the beach offering amazing views of the sunset. Most evenings after dinner we went the main bar (after 8 only 2 bars are open) for cocktails. The bar tended to empty bar a few souls around 10pm but the staff are happy to serve you if you want to stay longer. After deliberating and reading many reviews we decided to go AI. The food wasn't too expensive in Moodhu bar (the other restaurants were a little more expensive with the exception of the main restaurant) but drinks were quite a lot. If you tend to drink whilst away we would recommend AI but if not or just 1 or 2 a day this may not be the best option. Another plus point of staying AI is that you get 2 free excursions, 1 to two local islands and 1 sunset cruise to an uninhabited island. The staff on the island are very friendly and make your stay even more enjoyable. Anish on the sunset bar, and Hanifa and Verneeth on the main bar were brilliant. After a day or so they know your names and drinks order and even make their own cocktails especially for you! The house reef is amazing and full of colourful fish and if you are lucky enough and close to the edge you may even see dolphins, rays or turtles. There are also snorkelling and diving trips to various reefs in the atoll. Finally a couple of tips, you don't need shoes or flip flops whilst on the island (really you don't) and before bed head down to the beach to see if there is any glow in the dark algae, a truly amazing sight and even more fun when you step in it.

I decided on Reethi as my hotel after having spent months obsessng over my Lonely Planet guidebook to Maldives - it was favoured well in the book for its perfect balance of holiday activities and pure, ...
Read More serene isolation. I was to be a solo traveller and it wasn't my first time travelling alone. Being a sufferer of a particularly unkind medical condition, for me this trip was about relaxation and convalescence. Reethi Beach delivered on both these fronts. I loved how I never felt alone on this tiny islet despite being a solo traveller. The staff are remarkably friendly and if ever they are busy making your stay even better then there are always glowing newlyweds and other guests around to talk to. During your entire stay at Reethi Beach you will likely not see a single guest that is not smiling. The value is unrivalled in the Maldives - you are getting at Reethi Beach is like this... best house reef for snorkelling (check), affordable upgrades (check), beautiful rooms and general interior design - even the reception has floors lined with sand; you are technically checking in ON a beach. In fact the whole island is a beach - only there are mangrove trees all around you! :) You'll see plenty of little hermit crabs and starfish as you walk up and down the warm, sandy beaches. And this is something you'll do because for me it was the most amazing thing feeling the warm waters of the Maldives lapping over my bare feet. :) :) I could hardly recommend a better holiday destination and I certainly could not recommend a better resort than Reethi. This from someone who has stayed in some on the nicest 4 and 5 star hotels/resorts to offer in Florida, London and more... The cost of a Maldives holiday is substantial but this trip made me fully appreciate that old adage, "You get what you pay for". I had never known realy luxury and pure escapism until I visited Reethi and I am not a man of means so I will move heaven and Earth to get back there just as soon as I have the money - for boy!, is it worth it! :) :)

if you are looking for fancy and fussy with your own butler then dont bother as this wont be for you. I have been 4 times and booked for 5th time next january! its very small ...
Read More (10min round and 2 min across), nightlife is almost non existant and unchanged from year to year (mental note i should write down the quiz answers for the following year but always forget!) but the staff are all very friendly and the atmosphere is extremely relaxed. 50% of clients are repeaters so we cant all be wrong! i switch off as soon as the shoes come off on the pontoon. they always have your drink waiting once you get to know them and despite the number of guests it never feels crowded. have always done all inclusive as cant face budgeting and the food has always been good but there are a la carte places if you want something more fancy. the reef has suffered a lot of bleaching but the fish are amazing so do take an identification guidebook. i dont dive but see plenty from the beach. january weather can be mixed and sea gets a liitle stirred up but always warm. for me it offers my own little paaradise escape but wouldnt suit everyone.

Stayed here for 5 nights at the end of our honeymoon after 10 days in Sri Lanka.
The place was perfect. The island is beautiful and so quiet and relaxing, just what we wanted.
We stayed in ...
Read More water villa no. 204. Definitely one of the best, the sea access was great and the sunset views in the evening were amazing. Also, the whole pod of dolphins going right past our balcony doing their tricks in the mornings was a wake up call we will never forget. We did lots of snorkelling, and the diving school were great helping with my husband a confidence with diving. Food was great, and although not normally buffet fans, the AI was good. We also got a free candle lit dinner which was lovely! The staff were lovely, always service with a smile and couldn't help enough. This place is amazing and we would defiantly recommend staying here, it was the quiet peaceful haven we hoped for.
