This lush island has an unspoilt setting and follows the relaxed Maldivian way of life.
Reethi Beach might have a chilled-out atmosphere, but there’s plenty here if you’re looking for something more active. On the water, choose from catamaran sailing, canoeing, kitesurfing and waterskiing. Under water, there’s superb snorkelling on the house reef, with the chance to spot many species of fish, turtles and octopus – even dolphins have been known to come this close. Diving is another highlight, with house reef dives and multiple trips further afield each day. And as the Baa Atoll doesn’t have a high resort island population, many of the local dive sites are relatively unvisited. Back on land, there’s a sports complex with tennis, squash and badminton courts, and an air-conditioned fitness centre.
There’s also a good choice of dining. If you’ve booked Half Board, Half Board Plus, Full Board or All Inclusive, you’ll eat at The Rehendhi Restaurant, which offers an impressive range of nightly themed buffets from seafood to Chinese to Tex-Mex. The Reethi Grill and Saima Garden offer more intimate options under the stars, while the five bars include three lovely beach huts.
Maldivian-style villas are semi-detached, detached or overwater. Reethi Villas are simple and comfortable, with a partial open-air bathroom, and the more spacious Deluxe Villas include a Maldivian swing.
