An unassuming, fresh and modern Maldivian island retreat, rooted in its beautiful surroundings.
Cast adrift in the relatively undeveloped Raa Atoll, Reethi Faru is a wonderfully unassuming private island retreat where it’s all about letting the natural beauty do the talking. A stunning lagoon catches the sun like a glittering topaz; rays, reef sharks and sea turtles glide through the vibrant house reef. Restaurants and bars all have one thing in common: incredible locations – feast on fresh seafood at the overwater Dhiyavaru Restaurant or sample Maldivian fine dining in a torch-lit thatched beach cabana at Huvandhu Garden. Don’t miss the Sunset Bar to see a jaw-dropping purple-streaked sky.
Villas are spread across the island, concealed in the jungle, dotting the powdery sand or perched on stilts above the lagoon. Garden Villas are set back from the beach so we recommend the Deluxe Beach Villas or Deluxe Jacuzzi Beach Villas for a bed-to-beach location and a private hot tub – perfect for honeymooners. Or opt for a Water Villa for laid-back lagoon living at its best; you can dive straight into the crystalline waters from your deck. Interiors are rooted in their surroundings, many with private terraces and outdoor rain showers, and island-inspired decor – think coastal wall prints, cushions the colour of the sea and jungle, and natural wood furnishings.
It’s all about setting your own pace here. Wake to al fresco breakfasts then sink your toes into sand as soft as flour, before diving into the warm lagoon and unwinding in the Balinese-style spa. Or ramp it up with a huge choice of watersports – there’s everything from windsurfing to kitesurfing and paddleboarding (adrenaline junkies shouldn’t miss the jetpacks). Discover submerged islands and dramatic overhangs with Reethi Faru’s five-star dive centre, or stick to dry land with tennis, badminton, volleyball, basketball or yoga sessions.
