"Has changed since 2001"
I feel a little strange about writing this review as Reethi was our first ever island and we fell in love with the Maldives because of it. Having been to 6 other islands and having had different experiences I felt let down by Reethi this time. I was disappointed that due to beach erosion our sun beds were in the foliage and in the shade unless you it was low tide and could drag them into the sun. We stayed in a deluxe villa which was lovely except for the incredibly hard bed that no amount of toppers could soften. We also had flying ants not just in the room every night but also found them sharing our bed a few times. Although the room attendant turned up every day he didn't do much cleaning apart from sweeping the floor and making the bed which is a maldives first for us. We went all inclusive as our memories of the buffet in the main restaurant were of lots of choices and good service and felt this would be fine and keep costs down, unfortunately we were really disappointed in both service and choice of food. Salad choice consisted of lettuce,tomato,grated carrot and two bowls of mixed salad. The fruit choice on the one evening we ate there was apples,orange segments and plums. No one greeted us when we first went and staff just generally seemed uninterested , again this is not what I have ever experienced in the maldives. We ended up eating in the moodhu every night which I cannot fault on any level. Staff fantastic as was the food. We had several visits to the spa which were okay but to me over priced. We had great weather for the 10 nights we were there although difficult to snorkel on the first few days due to the sea being choppy. Overall Reethi is still a nice island but it is tired in my view, hence my mixed feelings on writing this review as it is not what it once was.
"Great island in the Maldives to visit"
I will start off by telling you a little bit about the island and accommodations available. The water villas are situated at one end of the island close to the reef which runs around the island. There is a nice beach situated behind the villas with lots of lovely white sand. Each water villa has its own set of beach loungers one traditional wooden parasols situated here, although to be honest most of the people who were using the water villas used the loungers thar were on their own private decks. The water villas have great views of the reef which is about 50 ft away and all get lovely sunset views (although the best sunset views are by the sunset bar) The rest of the villas are situated down each side of the island. There is a small issue with this and I will try to explain why. The side of the island that has the sunset bar on has the least beach available until you reach the top of the island. The rooms around 170's have their loungers in amongst the palm trees which are set up on a ridge off the beach. You don't have the space to get your sun loungers in the sun when you want to sunbathe. However this side of the island is by far the best for snorkelling. The rooms set on the other side of the island where the jetties are have a larger beach for you to move your loungers into the sun but your rooms are further away from the water. The rooms themselves re always clean and tidy without being extravagant. You ave to with 30 channels , fridge, kettle with tea and coffee. The showers are set in a rear walled area which is actually outside and it was lovely as you can hear the birds singing. Their are various small bars around the island where you can get drinks from. Staff are all really friendly and are lovely. In fact the staff on the whole of the island were great. We stayed half board for our stay and there was a good selection of foods available at both breakfast and also the evening meals. The evening meals in the main restaurant are themed from one day to the next. One night it will be Italian the next it will be traditional Maldivian cuisine. Don't let this be a barrier, I'm a really fussy eater ( much to my wife's annoyance) yet I really enjoyed the meals here. Just going to finish with a few pros and cons for the island. Pros Fantastic staff and service Reef on back of island is great for snorkelling Dive school are great and will help you with and dive or snorkelling issues Sunsets can be stunning on the back of island Front of island water is very shallow and warm, ideal for kids so long as they are kept under supervision Google guy feeding rays at reethi, this happens every night at 6.00pm and it's amazing Cons Wifi is only available in main bar and reception areas. You have to pay if you want it anywhere else. Apart from 1 bottle of water you have to pay for any extra water u need through the day. (This was what we had to do on half board package) not sure if it's included n all inclusive or not but I think it should be free for all packages. The issue mentioned above with some of the Sun loungers Cost of spa treatments. We did enjoy our stay and will definitely be back. Ste and Ali
"A Taste of Paradise"
General We stayed at Reethi Beach in Deluxe villa No. 112 for 10 nights from 15 to 24 September 2016. It was a wonderful holiday. We booked through the travel agents Kuoni in the UK and found them to be extremely knowledgeable and helpful throughout the booking process and also during arrival and departure at Male airport. We thought long and hard about the cost of the different meal options and eventually decided on â€œReethi Selectâ€ which gave us the most extensive choice of meals and drinks without needing to pay additional costs at the end of the holiday. We flew with Emirates airlines via Dubai. A lot of the Maldivian resorts set their own time zones and Reethi Beach is one hour ahead of Male time. We were told this when we first arrived and there are a set of clocks in reception to remind you. Arrival We were warmly greeted by Pia from guest relations and she took a genuine interest in how our holiday was going whenever we met up with her throughout our stay. We found all the staff to be very friendly and helpful. On arrival in Reception, we got a fresh coconut to drink and some registration forms to fill in requiring passport details etc. Our accommodation wasn't ready when we first arrived (11am Reethi time), we were told it would be ready by 1:30pm. Our bags were stored for us and we were given a special room number so we could start to order drinks and meals without them getting mixed up with those being ordered by the people who still had our room up until 12 pm. Accommodation Deluxe Villa number 112 is on the south west of the island very near the Sunset Bar and not far from the water sports and reception. The Deluxe Villas are detached and are right on the beach. It was wonderful to walk out and just be straight there on the beach. At the end of each day we could take just a few steps to see the thousands of stars and the â€œMilky Wayâ€ galaxy in the night sky. The one item we wish we had brought with us was a couple of small torches, these werenâ€™t essential, but would have helped with walking on the beach at night. We tried to buy some from the small shop on the island, but they only sold an underwater torch which cost $135. There was a wonderful large room in the villa with plenty of space around a massive king sized bed. Including: wardrobe, a safe, cupboard space, a sofa to sit on, flat screen TV on the wall (which we never switched on). There was also a mini bar which we could fill with drinks we got from the nearby Sunset Bar and a corkscrew/bottle opener in the room. The air conditioning worked really well and there were two ceiling fans. The bathroom was a really good size with toilet, wash basin, rain shower and also a bath with a shower attachment (see photos). The unusual thing was that the top section of the bathroom wall is open to the elements. This is to prevent condensation building up, it seems a bit strange at first. It doesn't let the rain in, unless it rains really badly and then it only comes in over the shower section. No one can see into the bathroom, except for the odd fruit bat hanging high in a tree. There was plenty of hot water. Soap, shower gel, shampoo and body lotion were provided along with hand and bath towels. There were also separate beach towels. There was a clothes line hanging over the shower end of the bathroom to dry your clothes and also a short piece of string to hang clothes outside on the beach umbrella. Restaurants & Bars You can eat and drink at any of the restaurants and bars on the island, but the additional amount you will pay at the end of your stay is dependent on the meal plan you are on. There are three different meal packages available: - Bed and Breakfast includes just breakfast in the main restaurant and then you pay for any drinks or to eat meals in any of the other restaurants - All Inclusive includes breakfast, lunch and dinner in the main restaurant and certain drinks, but is quite complicated in terms of what is and isn't free of additional charge - Finally there is Reethi Select which includes meals at any of the Ã¡ la carte restaurants and all drinks, including premium drinks and very good bottles of wine (XO Cognacs, Johnny Walker Blue Label, Chivas Royal Salute and lobster meals are excluded). We choose Reethi Select because we wanted to have paid for the majority of the holiday up front and then have the freedom to eat and drink what we wanted and when. We are not big eaters and drinkers and we might have been better off on B&B and then paid at the end of the holiday for additional food and drink. However meals and drinks in the Maldives are expensive, because the vast majority is imported and there are service charges and government tourist tax to pay. Having paid upfront we were free to choose whatever we wanted without constantly looking at the prices to see how much extra it was going to cost. We ate mostly in the Moodhu Bar (open 24 hours a day) and the Reethi Grill. We had two meals in the Saima Garden during our stay which is a more exclusive area of five tables at the edge of the beach. We also ate breakfast in the main buffet restaurant on three occasions when we wanted either a quicker breakfast (without waiter service) or just wanted a lighter breakfast (including cereals). All the meals were excellent and prepared to a high standard and the service was very good. We loved the milkshakes they made and often ordered two at a time! We also had some lunches and snacks in the Veyo Bar by the swimming pool. We enjoyed the fact there are so many different places to eat, each with their own different menus and ambience. The Moodhu Bar is the most convenient because it is open 24/7, the others open and shut at various times and some, like the Saima Garden must be pre-booked. The Saima Garden must be booked at least the night before, because you have to choose your food (from â€œMeatâ€, â€œSeafoodâ€ or â€œLobsterâ€ menu) at the time of booking. It is also advisable, although not always necessary, to book for the evening meal at the Reethi Grill and the Moodhu Bar. The reason for reserving a table at the Reethi Grill is because this restaurant has limited seating under cover and therefore you may get turned away if they are full. If it is raining then the Moodhu Bar (which is all under cover) may be full. We were confused at first about the instructions that some restaurants were weather dependent and one of the nights we booked at the Saima Garden it rained very heavily. If you have pre-booked at any of the restaurants then don't worry about the weather. The night it rained heavily and we ate at the Saima Garden we were well protected by the covering canopy, they could also roll down two sides of the canopy for further protection. We were told they would have moved us to the Moodhu Bar if the weather had been really bad (i.e. raining and extreme winds). At the back of the main bar there is a games room with table football, table tennis and a pool table â€“ all free to use. They also have a small library with the books sorted into different languages (English, German and Others). You can exchange any books you have finished reading, or just donate them to the library to save luggage space on the way home. Weather We booked to go in September because it's a time of year we prefer for a holiday and it was also cheaper. We recognised we might be taking a risk with the weather because September is in the Monsoon season. On the day we arrived (15 September) it was a beautiful sunny day. Over the next three days we had a mixture of light cloud and showers and one whole day of heavy rain. It was then beautiful and sunny for the remainder of the holiday. Being from the UK we have an obsession with the weather and know that poor weather can spoil a day out. On those days it did rain we found we could still find things to do. Our villa was spacious and therefore we could read or listen to music. The island has plenty of foliage so even during heavy rain you are protected from some of the worst of it. There are umbrellas stored in every room and in all the restaurants and these provide ample cover. The rain is warm, if you get wet, just change out of your clothes when you get back to your room. We spent the whole holiday barefoot and the whole island is covered in sand so there is no mud to get you dirty. The wet sand just brushes off your feet or you can use one of the many foot baths available at the entrances to your room or the restaurants to rinse your feet. In the UK if it rained as heavily as it did here, then everything would be covered in mud and it would be cold and damp. Here we were clean, apart from a bit of sand on our feet, and lovely and warm. The couple of days of rain didn't spoil our holiday and we actually found it quite fun to walk along in the heavy rain or to dodge the showers. The island just functions as normal because they are prepared for it. Wildlife There are no mosquitoes on the island because they take measures to eradicate them. There are some flies and ants, but these are harmless (although I did get bitten by some sand flies towards the end of the holiday). We had some ants at night in our bathroom and tolerated them for a few days, then asked for something to be done. The house boy used a spray to get rid of them. They did come back, after a few nights, in lower numbers, but we just tolerated them until the end of our stay. The biggest animals on the island are the fruit bats or flying foxes. A very apt name because they do look like foxes with batâ€™s wings. They are fascinating to watch and you may struggle to spot them at first, high up in the trees keeping well out of the way. The first time will probably be when you see one fly out from the trees on its way to visit one of the nearby islands. Later, you might get better at spotting them up in the trees. They are active during daylight and at night so they can be seen if you look carefully. There are a number of different species of birds from the heron, which you might see early in the morning fishing on the edge of the beach. There are also crows, just like the ones in the UK and a couple of small birds seen on the ground wandering along the paths and through the undergrowth. There are some wonderful small lizards which can camouflage themselves based on the colour of the background. It's amazing to see them first red, then sandy coloured, then the colour of tree bark, depending on where they are. We always love to see geckos clinging to the walls, wonderful friendly reptiles who get rid of any insects. Sea Life There are cute hermit crabs and ghost crabs to be seen while walking along the beach. Even if you're not into snorkelling or scuba diving you can still see lots of fish. You can watch the stingray feeding at the dive centre jetty every day at 6pm. If you walk along any of the jetties you can look down and see fish near the surface of the water. The Moodhu Bar jetty is particularly good for seeing the fish who congregate around the structure. It is well worth snorkelling. There are so many different varieties of fish to be seen, even in shallow water. You don't have to swim very far out to see loads of fish feeding on the coral. You can hire a mask, snorkel and flippers from the dive centre, but it's much cheaper to buy them before you arrive. Itâ€™s also worth bringing a camera that takes photos under the water. I bought a Fuji XP90 camera in the UK for Â£140 and it was well worth it, even if I only ever use it on this holiday. It also serves as a decent compact camera and takes videos (some of which Iâ€™ve posted on Youtube â€“ TimHowellX). Spa The Coconut Spa is in a lovely location and according to my wife, who is a former therapist, the staff there are marvellous. I certainly agreed. I had two massages while I was there and my wife had three. My wife highly recommends the therapist called Dewa because she was especially good at providing just the right type of pressure requested. One afternoon we had one of the Couples massages. We chose the â€œBliss Packageâ€ which lasted two and a half hours and cost $460 per couple (inclusive of service charge and tax). It was well worth it: a foot ritual, followed by a very relaxing Balinese traditional massage, a facial and finally a very romantic, shared aromatherapy bubble bath in a huge tub, with flower petals floating on the surface. Excursions We enjoyed ourselves so much on the island that we only went on one of the excursions. This was the â€œSunset Dhoni Cruiseâ€ which is one of the two free excursions for those staying all inclusive. It was a very pleasant trip from approx. 6pm to 8pm on a boat from the main jetty sailing towards the inhabited island of Kamadhoo then around the â€œFour Seasonsâ€ resort at Landaa Giraavaru before returning to Reethi Beach. It was lovely to see the sunset while at sea and to get a closer view of some of the other islands, you got a free drink halfway through the voyage. Flights Iâ€™ve added details about the flights from the UK. It was a twenty hour journey door to door, with three time zone changes: Dubai 4 hours ahead of GMT (3 hours ahead of British Summer Time), Male 5 hours ahead of GMT (4 hours ahead of British Summer Time) and Reethi Beach 6 hours ahead of GMT (5 hours ahead of British Summer Time). We flew Emirates A380 for just over 7 hours from Manchester to Dubai then had a two hour layover in Dubai. Then a Boeing 777 for just over 4 hours to Male. We filled out immigration forms in advance of landing. At Male airport we collected our suitcases and were met at Arrivals by someone holding up a card saying "Reethi Beach". They took us to the Kuoni representative who then showed us the way to the seaplane check in desk, right next to Arrivals. At the seaplane check in both our hand and hold luggage were weighed (you can only take 5kgs of hand luggage and 20kgs of hold luggage, without it costing you extra). After showing our passports and telling them our destination we received our boarding cards. The boarding cards tell you which seaplane terminal you are flying from: A, B or C. There is a dedicated bus right next to the seaplane check in. At first we wondered which bus to get on, but they all go the same route and the driver tells you which terminal is which. There are buses running continuously so it's relatively quick to transfer from terminal to terminal. We were originally scheduled to leave from Terminal C, but then were told we had to depart from A. It turned out we were the only two people going to Reethi Beach and they always try to get you on the earliest flight they can, so I guess they squeezed us onto another flight. The bus was already waiting and we transferred quickly. There was a shop at Terminal C and chance to buy food or a drink. The people in front of us had a longer wait for their seaplane so they were given vouchers for a meal and a drink. We bought a drink at Terminal C but got transferred to A before we had chance to drink it, then found free bottles of water available in the departure section at Terminal A. The one thing that confused us was that our seaplane boarding cards made no mention of "Reethi Beach". This is because (as we later found out) Reethi Beach is just the name of the resort. The official name of the island is â€œFonimagoodhooâ€ so the boarding cards and luggage labels were marked "FON". Another confusing thing is that there are strict weight limits for suitcases and hand luggage. Although the hand luggage stays with you while you board the bus and wait in the terminal it just gets put in the back of the plane on top of the already stacked suitcases, you don't take it to your seat with you because there isn't room on a full flight. It was a fantastic 35 minute flight on the seaplane, we got to see all the islands below so make sure you've taken your camera out of your hand luggage before you get on the plane. When we landed at the pontoon at Reethi Beach we just pointed out which was our hand luggage at the back of the aircraft and the crew also asked us to confirm which was our hold luggage. They had stacked the suitcases in the order of arrival at the various islands so ours was on top and was brought off the flight for us by the very helpful crew. My wife has mobility problems (she walks with a stick). Even for an able bodied person it's a bit tricky at first stepping from the seaplane onto the pontoon and then from the pontoon onto the boat. The boat takes you the short trip from the pontoon to the Reethi Beach jetty. Both the crew of the seaplane and the staff from Reethi Beach were extremely helpful and we felt completely safe during the whole of this transfer process. It's funny to think how gingerly we transferred from seaplane to pontoon to boat to jetty. Then to later watch the crew and staff, who do it multiple times a day, just seamlessly step from one to another. At the end of the holiday we were curious to know what time we needed to catch the seaplane. We knew that our flight from Male to Dubai was scheduled at 9:10am (Male time) and therefore we were likely to catch the first flight out from Reethi Beach. Reception only get confirmation of the flight times at 8:30pm the evening before you leave, but we knew we would be on the first flight out so would need to pack our bags the night before we left. Reception gave us a printed sheet with all the details on it. There is a time for when they will ring your villa to give you a wake-up call etc. Our schedule looked something like this: 6:00am Wake-up call; 6:30am Put luggage outside room; 6:45am Breakfast in the main restaurant; 7:15am Go to Reception to catch flight. Usually they will provide a continental breakfast in the Moodhu Bar for those people leaving early (this is open 24 hours a day). On this particular morning there were 14 of us catching the seaplane so they opened the main buffet restaurant a little early for us to have continental breakfast. After breakfast, we waited in reception for a while, then went out to the jetty to watch the seaplane arrive. It was a bit later than scheduled, but we didnâ€™t worry because the seaplane pilot is in contact with the airport at Male so any delays can be radioed ahead. You can see a video of our departure from Reethi and arrival at Male on YouTube. At Male you walk off the seaplane with your hand luggage and catch a bus back to the seaplane terminal at the main airport. Your hold luggage then follows a few minutes later in a small van and you wait at the seaplane terminal at Male to pick it up when it arrives. We reversed the journey with another two hour layover in Dubai. With the time difference at Reethi Beach of 5 hours ahead of British Summer Time we left Reethi Beach at 7:30am (their time) and finally got to our house at 10:30pm British Summer Time.
We stayed at the resort for 10 days as part of our honeymoon. I honestly could not fault the resort at all and couldn't have asked for a better stay. We transferred by seaplane which was an experience (!) and on arrival at the island, we were given fresh coconut juice and a cold flannel while we checked-in which was much appreciated. Check-in was very quick and we were quickly taken to our room, whilst the facilities of the island were explained to us. We stayed in a deluxe villa which was more than adequate for our needs. This differed from a standard villa as it had a living area, Maldivian swing and (I think) a better position on the beach. The room was cleaned twice a day. We stayed on an AI basis and this worked out really well for us. This allowed us to eat at the buffet restaurant 3 times a day, most alcoholic and soft drinks were included, and we had the option to have afternoon tea daily (though we never got round to this). The food was really good. I'm a vegetarian and never struggled to eat though there was more choice some days than others but I have experienced this at every place I've stayed. We had a meal at the Saima Garden restaurant as part of the honeymoon package. This is a really intimate restaurant and the food was lovely. We spent most evenings in the sunset bar where service from Hanifa and his team was brilliant. We would then move onto the main bar after dinner where again service was good. There was nightly entertainment there too but it was quite low key (apart from Maldivian drumming night!) which suited us fine. We had a 30 minute massage in the Coconut Spa which was lovely. As AI guests we had 2 trips included - the sunset dhoni trip and a boat trip to 2 neighbouring islands. I would recommend both. We also did the technical tour which was interesting. The staff all over the resort were so friendly and helpful. In conclusion - I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the resort and would love to visit again.
This was our 13th visit to the Maldives but our first to Reethi Beach. I'll start with the positives: beach villa location, lovely bit of beach right in front of the room (room 106) Man made lagoon was great for swimming, dipping when it got a bit warm No mosquitos Allocated sun beds Open air bathroom The service was very good, reception, room boy and waiting staff Standard of English was excellent Proximity to Hanifaru Bay, nature reserve Mainly Europeans (meant there were more divers) Spa Negatives The bed, this was a huge negative for me. it was the hardest bed I've ever slept on, it was a bit like a large paving slab. We did mention this to reception and they arranged for a mattress topper to be added but to be honest this didn't make much of a difference Vegetarian food, I struggled at first as there were few to no vegetarian main courses on offer for lunch or dinner. There might be a soup, veggie curry and side dishes of vegetables and of course salad. But even a lot of the salad dishes had meat or fish added. I spoke to the restaurant manager about it and he said he would make me whatever I wanted. Can't say fairer than that but I didn't already know what I wanted for dinner at lunchtime and I didn't like being a pest. House reef, people had raved about the house reef but to be honest we've seen a lot better. We were there in September and it was very windy and the currents were really strong which was a little off putting. There was a reasonable stretch to snorkel, between the water villas and the beach bar. I guess we were expecting more after the rave reviews. Mini bar was empty and despite being all inclusive, not even soft drinks were present. You could take drinks from the beach bars back to the room though. Asked for a carton of milk to take back to the room, got told we would have to pay for it. Only wanted it for tea/coffee. When we signed for it, they wanted $10.... Nearly Â£5! Spoke to the restaurant manager again and he said that if we found a plastic bottle they would fill it up for free, but we'd have to pay for it. So, overall we had a good break, the lack of sleep was a struggle (due to uncomfortable bed). We went on the manta snorkel and it was AMAZING, worth going to the island just for that. We saw 25 the first time and 50 the next. They were close enough to touch. The weather was great, a couple of wet days right at the start then 12 glorious days (despite it being the rainy season) Tried the dive school, had a couple of lagoon dives and a boat dive. Service was nice and friendly. We thought that the spa/dive school were on the expensive side and only giving 15% discount to eat in the a la carte restaurants when you've already paid for AI was a bit rich. Would we go back, probably not, is it worth a visit, yes, but only if you like hard beds.
