One&Only Reethi Rah , Maldives − a stunning resort in the Indian Ocean, edged by beaches and turquoise bays stretching over six kilometres of private coastline − has launched a new type of villa, the ‘Water Villa Pool’. Connected to the island by over-water walkways, these luxury villas sit on stilts perched right over the lagoon. Each has a 40m² covered veranda, a split-level 31m² deck and a private pool. Netting is suspended, like a hammock, from each pool so that guests can catch the ocean breeze while they bask in the sunshine. Inside there is an opulent living space with entertainment area, while the bathroom features a generously-sized terrazzo bath. The villa also comes with a host of benefits including Villa Valet Service, an unpacking/packing luggage service, complimentary pressing of one garment per person, fresh fruit daily and bottled mineral water and a selection of teas and espresso types.
In addition, One&Only Reethi Rah, Maldives, now has another three-bedroom Grand Sunset Residence. These spectacular residences, nestled in the island’s natural greenery and occupying over 2,000m² of private beachfront luxury, are made up of two separate villas − making them ideal for a family of six, plus a Nanny. A private road leads up to the residence, where elegant interiors are contemporary with separate living and dining areas. Highlights include a private ocean-facing, outdoor spa sala to enjoy in-villa treatments, a fully-equipped outdoor kitchen, a private 50m² pool, a dedicated 24-hour Concierge service, an on-call Chef, complimentary use of private buggies to explore the island, a personal iPhone and iPad, plus Dom Pérignon Champagne on arrival.
