One&Only Maldives at Reethi Rah is unusual in that it is spectacularly designed in an octopus shape with an extraordinary 6 km of coastline. As a result, villas are wonderfully spacious and all guests can enjoy beautiful ocean views and access. Set on one of the largest islands in North Male' Atoll, adorned with endless white sand coves and turquoise bays, all villas have direct access to the lagoon and an unprecedented degree of privacy. Villas, service and dining are geared to guests accustomed to the highest world-class standards. Opened 1 May 2005.
