EXTRAORDINARY ESCAPES CLIENTS SAY

We had the most WONDERFUL trip! The resort was absolutely impeccable; it can almost not be faulted! The Maldives is easily our family's most ideal holiday spot and One&Only was the perfect resort for our family. Every need was attended to almost instantly and nothing was ever a problem, from packing and unpacking our bags to helping us bury the treasure chest. It was all done with a smile.

The trip truly could not have been better. Absolutely every activity, every meal and every person on the island were fabulous!

With the deal you put together for us, we believe we had the best value holiday on offer. If finances permit, we intend to make this an annual family holiday!

Thanks again for your help and we hope to be in contact with you again next year to book another trip to the Maldives. I will be sure to pass on your details to anyone who wishes to book a trip to the most perfect destination in the world!

Vanessa, Sydney, Australia

My partner and I were planning a wedding in the Maldives and spoke to many of the "everyday" travel agents that were in our area. After becoming tired of hearing each of the travel agents read to us what was written in the travel brochures we did some searching around and found Extraordinary Escapes.

Extraordinary Escapes is not an everyday travel agent. Extraordinary Escapes was able to offer us a personalised consultancy service that was able to recommend from experience and at a time that was suitable to us. As a result of dealing with Extraordinary Escapes we were able to have our Maldivian wedding exactly how we wanted it which was combined with a honeymoon that we will never forget!

Garth Krumins, Brisbane, Australia

I booked my clients through Extraordinary Escapes to the One & Only Resort in The Maldives and they had the most perfect holiday.

Thank You Extraordinary Escapes for working with me to create this perfect holiday for my clients, I will definitely be calling you again!

One&Only Reethi Rah is a true Maldivian luxury haven. The resort's ultimate goal is to deliver on all of your expectations. The island itself is the second largest resort island in the Maldives and therefore can cater to families and couples with enough space for everyone.


One&Only Reethi Rah offers so much to do and you are given bikes to ride around the island. On our last visit to One&Only Reethi Rah we found that over an eight night stay, we still didn't get to certain parts of the island. The island's gardens are meticulously groomed and are absolutely beautiful.

The service at One&Only Reethi Rah is second to none. On arrival you are greeted by your private butler who will look after your every need during your stay. This stylish resort is wonderfully atmospheric in the evenings, with a resort dress code of smart casual and trousers for men. After dinner at the bar, there is always some form of entertainment whether it be a fantastic five piece local band, an English acoustic guitar player or a jazz evening.

One&Only Reethi Rah has two swimming pools, an infinity edge pool for couples only and a stunning pool on the beach that is shaded by gorgeous frangipani trees and is great for families. There is also a beautiful grassed area next to the pool where families can kick a soccer ball and kids can run around.

One&Only caters beautifully to families with a fantastic Kids Club that has its own grounds and swimming pool complete with water slide. They also have a Tweens Club, unique to One&Only Reethi Rah, designed for Kids that are in between a Kids Club and complete independence. For the teenagers, they have plenty to offer with their own area on the island.

Must Do:

We absolutely love the Beach Villas and Beach Villas with Pools at One&Only Reethi Rah. The beaches are so wide and inviting and the villas are designed to take full advantage of this. The villas have two large glass doors at the front that slide all the way open, taking indoor outdoor living to an entirely new level.

There are 130 Villas in total set on the beach and over water. The villas are elegant and private with a true Maldivian feel. They are always decorated with beautiful fresh orchids grown in One&Only Reethi Rah's own Orchid Green House, which guests are welcome to look around.


The Beach Villas are one of the largest beach villas in the Maldives. They have high rafted ceilings and beautiful wooden doors that slide all the way back opening the entire front of the villa out to the beach. There is so much privacy and lush vegetation between each villa that you virtually have to ride your bike from one villa to the next. Some of the Beach Villas have beautiful large private pools.

The Water Villas are extremely private, located all over the island in clusters of four villas only per jetty. They are arranged in a semi-circle shape with each facing out towards the lagoon on a different angle offering the ultimate privacy. These villas also have stunning high rafted ceilings and expansive decks with netted hammocks to relax in.

The Duplex Beach Villa with Pool comes with its own private buggy to drive around the island on! Very luxurious! One of the rooms has a King Bed and the other has 2 x Queen Beds, separated by a private garden. The rooms are not truly inter-connected and are fantastic for families with older children that are looking for some separate space.

Duplex Beach Villa Pool: 135 sqm
Designed with a contemporary elegance, these villas have a stylish feel combined with a diverse Asian influence, blending clean lines with the skillful use of natural materials such as coconut shell, sea grass, silk, rattan, teak, mahogany, terrazzo and thatch. Generous exterior spaces range from beach verandas to private swimming pools and large over-water decks.

Ideal for families, Duplex Beach Villa Pool consist of two Beach Villas, five metres apart, joined by an external walkway. An expanse of private shoreline stretches directly onto the white sand and inviting waters of the beach. One villa features a King-size bed; the other offers two Queen-size beds.

The Duplex Beach Villa Pool is screened by abundant greenery, offering as much or as little privacy as required. Each has an outdoor shower and veranda, and the 23m/248ft pool is shared.
For Grand Beach, Grand Water and Duplex Beach villa guests, a personal buggy and Bose 'Lifestyle 18' surround system are also provided.

Must Do: Try dining at one of Tapasake's two very private Japanese style tables set in their own Sala over the water. Or for something very special, try a private gourmet picnic on One&Only Reethi Rah's sandbank. Watch while the boat crew dig you a table out of sand with an Arabian style tent to provide you with shade.

One&Only Reethi Rah offers an exquisite global culinary journey. With four amazing restaurants, all offering different international food menus set in perfectly themed restaurants; it is hard to decide where to eat. The Resort General Manager himself was once an Executive Chef and actually prepares a private dinner in the Wine Cellar once a week for guests.


The main restaurant, Reethi, is stylish and elegant. It is set over water and is decorated with beautiful hand crafted timbers. Fanditha is located at one end of the island and has a stunning sunset bar decorated with huge Moroccan style daybeds. Tapasake has to be our favourite. Set over-water on the sunset side of the island, the restaurant's menu is designed to offer the finest Japanese style tapas. In true One&Only Reethi Rah style, Tapasake is themed beautifully with magnums of Sake lining the Sushi counter.

Reethi Restaurant
A temple of exquisite dining, the dramatic design of Reethi Restaurant frames the natural beauty all around and the stunning cuisine, impeccable service and low-key ambience within. An eclectic menu fuses flavours from Asia Pacific and the Mediterranean into a light, contemporary cuisine. Floor-to-ceiling glass screens reveal the 'open-concept' show kitchen, and a walk-in wine room with an extensive collection doubles as a private dining room for special events.

Please note: Gentlemen are required to wear long pants and a polo shirt or long sleeved shirt when dining in Reethi Restaurant. Ladies are welcome to wear island chic.

Activities

Must Do: One of our favourite activities is to hire a boat and design our very own perfect excursion. On our last visit to One&Only Reethi Rah, this entailed us taking the boat to first snorkel with dozens of turtles, jumping back on the boat and going to the resort's private sand bank for some beautiful reef snorkelling. While we were busy watching hundreds of technicoloured reef fish and stunning corals, the unbelievable boat crew had set up the most perfect picnic you could imagine. They had dug a table into the sand with a huge Arabian style white tent to provide us with shade. Then out came the drinks and gourmet food. This was literally a dream come true!

One&Only Reethi Rah is a picturesque island with six kilometres of stunning coastline, 12 beautiful beaches and kilometres of gorgeous bike paths. If activity is what you are looking for, One&Only Reethi Rah offers so much to do. On our last visit to One&Only Reethi Rah we found that over an eight night stay, we still didn't get to certain parts of the island.


One&Only Reethi Rah caters beautifully to families with a fantastic Kids Club that has its own grounds and swimming pool complete with water slide. The Kids Club has a very detailed weekly program full of action packed activities for the kids such as pirate day where the kids make their own pirate shirts and are taken to a deserted island by boat to play pirate games. Or for the Kids that are budding junior chefs, try pizza making classes and sushi making classes sure to tempt them all.

There is also a Tweens Club, unique to One&Only Reethi Rah, designed for Kids that are in-between a Kids Club and complete independence. Here Tweens are provided with more age appropriate activities and are still supervised at all times.

For the teenagers, they have plenty to offer at the activity centre with tennis courts, a beach volleyball court, pool tables and more all located at the far end of the island, next to the Water Sports Centre. This area is called Club One and it is a fantastic new addition to One&Only Reethi Rah. They have set up an entire serviced beach area around the water sports centre, with a little lunch beach cafe and service right to your deck chair. You can spend the day there playing on the various water sports equipment, with the kids close by at any of the kids' zones.

While the resort does not have a true house reef, they do have an area in front of Club One where you can snorkel with beautiful reef fish and even the resident turtle. One&Only have a resident marine biologist who is working hard on a coral generation project, planting frames and developing the resorts very own house reef.

Fitness: The combination of a dedicated fitness team and exquisite training environment makes the fitness and wellbeing experience at One&Only Reethi Rah truly unique and complete.
