Island retreat, with comfort and style.

Reethi Beach Island Resort is set in a stunning remote location in the Indian Ocean, with idyllic swaying palms and a sandy white beach. Maldivian-style detached and semi-detached villas are dotted throughout the property, each with private terraces and sun loungers so you can really unwind, and direct access to the gorgeous powdery beach or a position set on stilts over the crystal clear blue lagoon. Take advantage of the dive centre, exploring the surrounding reefs, or simply relax in the spa and wellness retreat. Dining comes in the form of a rich buffet restaurant or a choice of delicious à la carte restaurants set throughout the island, and there are plenty of bars too; by the freshwater pool or the beach, with views out to the amazing golden sunsets. 

  • Maldivian rustic island
  • Surrounded by uninhabited islands
  • Great choice of water and land activities
  • PADI Five Star Dive Centre

We love Reethi but it is not as good as it was.

Bexley, United Kingdom

We visited Reethi for 10 nights from November 2017. This was our second trip to the island and we were hoping to recapture the magic and beauty that we experienced in 2012. Whilst the island is still very beautiful and has the most wonderful house reef, my wife and I were left disappointed with some aspects. Some of the facilities, such as the pool area and the room allocated sun bed were quite run down when compared with 5 years ago. They really looked like they could do with a spruce up. Large, very ugly sand bags had been added to arrest the movement of the sand at both ends of the island: and whilst we appreciate that they may be necessary, they could surely have been designed in a more sympathetic way. The restaurants, reception, and other facilities were top rate as before and the staff as friendly always. Unfortunately due to a tropical cyclone the weather was poor for most of the time we were there and the wind caused quite a lot of damage, but of course that was not the resort's fault. All in all Reethi is a very relaxing barefoot island with great natural resources and simply needs a bit of love and attention to return it to how we remember it from our first visit. However we were advised by staff members that the island has been sold by the current owners as the lease expires in 2020. They have now built another resort on a different island. This may explain the lack of care.

A great tropical holiday for r and r.

Alresford, United Kingdom

To use the great F word of the 21st century - it was all Fine. The BA flight was extremely straight forward. The 2 hour queue to go through passport control at Male is a bit boring but the sea plane flight out to Reethi Beach is wonderful and exciting. The food was good, the sea warm and clear and the bed comfortable. What is not Fine though is the state of the coral. Either the coral is all bleached or dead. There are lots of lovely fish but it is like watching a Disney film with the backdrop faded to black and white. There is no lovely crackling of live coral (we found one tiny pocket). This should be a real worry for the Maldivians and their future tourism.
