Top Secret

The resort can organize a private romantic meal on an isolated sandbank in the middle of the Indian Ocean.

Origins

The owners of Reethi Faru set up the resort to cater to guests who wanted to experience Maldivian five star luxury at four star prices. The bio luxury resort is committed to the natural landscape through the development of artificial coral nurseries, alongside numerous conservation initiatives.

The Review

From the moment you step off the seaplane and on to the white sand beach overlooking the crystal-clear waters of the Indian Ocean, you know you have reached a private slice of paradise.

 

As one of the few, somewhat, affordable full-island resorts, Reethi Faru stands out as an exceptional getaway for honeymooners, young couples, and even families with kids. Although those can be rather contrasting holidays, the unique thing about the resort is that the island is big enough to comfortably provide each type of vacationer a seemingly tailor-made experience.

 

With five restaurants and four bars, guests are spoilt for choice and never more than five minutes away from a drink or the freshest seafood. If the perfect Maldivian Instagram shot with turquoise waters, white sands and swaying palm trees was on your checklist, nearly all the bars and restaurants on the island have such a spot less than a stones throw away.

 

The aspect that raised the hotel to a must-visit destination was the range and quality of experiences on offer. If you’re the kind of traveler looking for a secluded romantic hideaway, but also want a great Friday night party along with water-sports and some diving, then Reethi Faru should definitely find a place on your list. The resort boasts of one the best water sports centres in the Maldives with Jetskis, Flyboards, Paragliders, Drones and even Electric powered Seabobs.

 

Once you get caught up in the typical island day of sunbathing, jumping into the ocean directly from your villa, pure relaxation massages at the coconut spa and a cocktail at the sunset bar, it would be understandable, if like us, you’ve impulsively changed your tickets to extend your holiday and pre-booked next year’s vacation.
