Project: Reethi Rah Five-star Resort| Architects: One&Only | Location: Maldives |
I am constantly coming back to fascinating Maldives, now I am daydreaming at Reethi Rah five-star resort developed by One&Only. According to the official resort description, “One&Only Reethi Rah is home to 130 private villas discreetly placed along the shore – with 98 Beach Villas secluded by lush tropical greenery, and 32 Water Villas set above the clear, protected waters of the lagoon. Amongst the largest resort villas in the world, each is detached, expansive and equally luxurious. Designed with a contemporary elegance, their stylish feel is 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“.
Niyama Hotel in the Maldives provokes travelers to indulge in a Maldivian paradise. Surrounded by unspoiled waters of the Indian Ocean, this luxurious retreat welcomes guests with a tailored atmosphere suited for the modern traveler. Accommodations include 86 over-water or on-land studios and pavilions, all defined by an elegant feeling of luxury accentuated by the wild surroundings. Open-air bedrooms extended outside towards the water gardens alongside rain showers, offering unique moments and reconstructing the idea of modern Maldivian luxury. Spaces range from 160 to 350 square meters – spacious rooms extend into the wild, fusing with nature. Even more features await to be discovered in a splendid location so close to the idea of heaven!
In a perfect world, I would like to spend the rest of my week (or life) at Anantara Kihavah Villas, sipping cocktails on soft white beaches and taking dips into the crystal clear waters of the Maldives. If only we had magical powers that allowed us to simply blink and be transported to any destination of our choosing, don’t you agree?
