Reethi Beach Resort

Offering first class comfort in a tropical paradise location.

The Reethi Beach Resort is located on the tiny island of Fonimagoodhoo, which is in Baa Atoll. This typical Maldivian style resort is nestled within lush vegetation with towering palm trees, surrounded by a stunning white sandy beach and a beautiful crystal clear lagoon. The wonderful house reef which has been relatively untouched is only 30 metres from shore with an east and west side making it perfect to suit experienced and novice divers. On the shallower east side you can see beautiful soft and hard corals, lobsters, crabs, octopus and moray eels. In the evening turtles, rays and guitar sharks often come up to the shore. On the west side, a channel stretches the length of the island where you can see diverse marine life including batfish, mackerels, eagle rays and dolphins just to name a few. During the monsoon season between May and October, spotting manta rays and whale sharks is not uncommon! With 30 dive sites around Baa Atoll, your diving experience at the Reethi Beach Resort will certainly be an unforgettable one.

Each villa is air-conditioned and set amongst either tropical foliage fringing a soft beach or on stilts over the clear blue lagoon. Offering a range of meal plans to suit all pockets, guests can chose from bed and breakfast, half board, full board and all inclusive options. All rooms have private sun loungers with mattress located at the beach and their own private terrace or veranda.
