10 One & Only Reethi Rah: ESPA


Best Experience:   Honeymoon, Water Villas, family, beaches, spa, activities

Nature never copies art, rather the last has long been rated an effective form of meditation - even if you are not a creative type in the palette of natural colors there is always something therapeutic to impose on canvas. Artist Studio in One & Only Reethi Rah offers a wide range of activities, covering everything from painting to ceramics. Australian Christopher Hogan is the acting artist of the resort hotel, and his classes involve getting to know his vision of modern abstract style, and the opportunity to create his own masterpieces based on the wild nature of the Maldives.

Still crave classic spa techniques? ESPA has a more than sufficient list of treatments and wellness programs to choose from, including two full hours of relaxation with the 'Unwind Signature Experience' with the hot volcanic stones, and the rejuvenating 'Sun Ritual' that nourishes your skin and prepares it for a safe, sunny procedures at Sun Spa, the only one of its kind in the Maldives. It is also worth trying a variety of comprehensive programs aimed at full relaxation, increasing vitality, or improving overall well-being, for two. The cost of the treatments includes: a hydromassage pool, a steam room with amethyst crystals, a sauna, a branded cold or hot tea. 

Before stay there, Reethi Rah for the island resort seems a bit conservative. Smooth, majestic, but perhaps lacking some details of the bounty in Maldives rural style (call it what you like) that are in fashion today. Going ashore, you will realize that refusal to follow a fashion trend is the same point: you simply do not need it when you are the best. Reethi Rah adheres to his own One & Only style. Purposefully not 'trendy', in the development stage to the top level of luxury, specializing in high quality service to its guests, such an experience you would have hard to find somewhere else in the Maldives.   READ FULL REVIEW
