Tropical island living at its sublime best!
2022 is looking big on honeymoon travel. We have seen an increased influx of couples to exotic island getaways that are brimming with privacy and exclusivity. The need for personalization and exclusivity has led couples to choose differently. The Maldives rightfully crowns the list of the most wished-for romantic destination with its tropical appeal and picturesque bearings.
The Maldives’ unique island geography promises a private one-island one-resort concept, which means choosing the right resort is essential for your ultimate Maldives experience. It is where you eat, sleep and go for excursions. If you’re looking to quench your thirst for experiencing luxury amidst white sands and turquoise waters, we have Jan B. Tibaldi, General Manager of One&Only Reethi Rah as an expert to guide you on what to consider for your 2022 honeymoon.
The six-star One&Only Reethi Rah takes luxury in the Maldives to a new dimension. Offering ultimate privacy and stunning scenery, One&Only Reethi Rah is one of the largest luxury resorts in the Maldives. The resort is rightfully regarded as the pinnacle of far-flung luxury destinations with its next-level services, incredible food, amazing design, and attention to detail. 12 postcard-worthy beaches and six kilometers of coastline ensure privacy as well as an abundance of activities, space and freedom. An idyllic island getaway is truly unrivaled for stunning scenery, perfect weather and total luxury.
Increased Concern for Health & Safety

Each villa is positioned to face a different direction, offering the ultimate seclusion and uninterrupted vistas of the turquoise ocean.

Increased Revenge Luxury Travel
Every couple is unique, which is why every honeymoon should also be unique! There is no one-size-fits-all honeymoon destination. Some want to just sit back and not lift a finger after all the wedding stress, whereas others want to knock something exciting off their bucket list.
Following a 2+ year pandemic that we’re only easing out of, couples who have either been stuck at home or worse, apart from each other, can only benefit from the renewed privacy of a honeymoon at One&Only Reethi Rah to rekindle their relationship and rediscover each other.
In addition to a range of water and land sports activities available on the island, spend time with each other in an artist studio whereby you can take part in painting classes led by an artist in residence. They offer unique experiences that can’t be found in other properties in the Maldives, including their iconic destination dining experience at the Treehouse – a stunning and picturesque timber treetop above the canopy of palm trees where couples can enjoy a private romantic dinner.
