One&Only Reethi Rah
A private paradise in the Maldives
One&Only Reethi Rah is situated on one of the largest islands in North Malé Atoll, surrounded by the azure waters of the Indian Ocean. The Maldives lie 700 km (430 mi) southwest of Sri Lanka, sitting among white beaches and coral atolls and neighboured by peaceful fishing villages.
Formerly known as 'King's Island,' explorers, traders and travellers have frequented the island for hundreds of years though many of the surrounding islands remain uninhabited. The resort is home to 12 pristine beaches that stretch over six kilometres of private coastline. There are also 37 private villa pools—each featuring a carved stone aqua bed—plus separate adult and family swimming pools and a 30m lap pool.
Relax in the acclaimed One&Only Spa with expert treatments in a beautiful setting, or explore the vibrant coral reefs through the PADI-certified Dive Centre where you can find over 2,000 species of fish using nitrox, rebreathers, underwater scooters and more.
An exclusive oasis on the Sea of Cortez
One&Only Palmilla lies on the edge of the Baja Peninsula alongside the Sea of Cortez, where turquoise waters wash over golden sands. With views of the Los Cabos, (Spanish for ‘The Capes’) One&Only Palmilla is surrounded by vibrant marine life.
Originally built as a luxury 15-room hideaway by the son of the President of Mexico, the resort has since played host to famous guests from John Wayne and Lucille Ball to former United States President Dwight D. Eisenhower. One&Only Palmilla officially opened in 2004 following a $90 million refurbishment.
Michelin-starred chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten and chef Larbi Dahrouch present a mouth-watering range of steak, seafood, Mexican farm-to-table cuisine, sushi and suviche plus lighter fare to satisfy every palette.
You can explore the wonders of the Baja Peninsula in a chauffeured all-terrain vehicle or on horseback, enjoy a day on the Sea of Cortez scuba diving and snorkelling or join the captain and crew for world-renowned sport fishing.
One&Only Spa is surrounded by tropical gardens and outdoor relaxation areas including a peaceful yoga garden or Barber&Blade for the gents.
