Nestled amidst lush vegetation and shaded by graceful palm trees, Reethi Beach opened its doors on 2. Nov. 1998. Its unique local architecture blends with the natural beauty of the island creating an eco-friendly environment.
Surrounded by a white sandy beach and crystal clear water you will feel to be in paradise. Only 15% of the total land area has been built up. This gives our guests a great privacy and a feeling of nature with comfort and style.

Surrounded by uninhabited islands, Reethi Beach offers its guests a unique opportunity to discover those islands, as they are exclusively held by Reethi Beach.

If you wish to simply relax and unwind, there are isolated stretches of inviting white sandy beaches and gentle waves of the lagoon to massage your stress away.

For the more energetic there is a wide variety of recreation facilities, or perhaps you would prefer to socialize with newly made friends in the charming ambience of the main bar, or tease your taste buds with flavours from round the world in one of our restaurants.

A 35 min. seaplane flight with Trans Maldivian Airways will bring our guests to the nearby platform from RBR Our Guest relation team will accompany you on the 15 min. boats ride, on a traditional Maldivian Dhoni, for your next holiday retreat, to the island Reethi Beach.

On arrival to the resort you will be accompanied by one of our guest relation officers who will speak your language and invite you for a tropical drink and helps you out with filling the guest registration and shows you to your villa. Later on the day the same guest relation officer shows you the whole island and explains to you about all our services and facilities on the resort.

ENVIRONMENTAL ASPECTS

White sandy beaches sparkling in the sun alongside crystal clear lagoons would be an idyllic place to spend a perfect holiday. While this is true in most aspects, the degree of fragility of our environment is gaining much attention within national and international levels.

The fragile marine and terrestrial environment including the reefs and bio-diversity would be greatly affected unless careful management of the environment is done. Our beauty and natural resources are strongly linked with economic development of the country. Such awareness has raised many concerns and the Government and private industry is taking extensive measures towards protecting the environment.

Reethi Beach from the day one of its planning has been very concerned about the environmental aspects from building and management of the resort. Reethi Beach is one the most eco-friendly resorts in the Maldives and it is very proud of its natural vegetation and eco-friendly management of its resources.

On the building of the resort utmost care was taken that the surrounding reefs were untouched and as little trees were cut. Most of the palms and trees that had to be removed were relocated rather than cutting them.

Due to the geographical uniqueness of the island of Maldives, each island manages its own waste and power. We have put some the latest available state of the art technology to manage our waste and power as our commitment to sustain the fragile environment of the Maldives.

Reethi Beach has committed to become a model for eco-friendly tourism is Maldives and it is perusing every possibility to achieve this goal.

Today the resorts entire water heating is by Solar, the Sewerage is treated using minimal energy by means of bacterial culture and the treated water is then used for gardening, all refrigeration on the island is CFC free, Bottles are crushed and stored as building material, cans are compressed and sent to Thilafushi ( a government managed waste disposal site ) and are properly disposed, most of the non bio degradable material are incinerated by using a state of the art Norwegian incinerator, half of the lights used on the island are energy saving, most of the bio waste are decomposed and used for gardening, only biodegradable detergents are used by the management, no boats are allowed to throw anchors to the house reef, etc…..

In addition the resort also carries out some very unique activities to protect and understand the environment. A program is carried out by the resort to observe the changes of the house reef and of the beach line of the resort and is handed over to the concerned government authorities. Safari Boats and Travelers are encouraged to hand over their garbage to the resort so that it can be properly disposed. To attract them the resort supplies these boats with their necessities and allows them to use its facilities. The resort also carries out many environmental awareness programs for the native Maldivians, for them to understand and preserve their environment.

SURROUNDING ATMOSPHERE: Baa Atoll is special due to its island formation. Mostly, all the island are quite close to each other.
Reethi Beach has the opportunity to be surounded of deserted islands. This gives the feeling to be alone in this atoll.

WILD LIFE: Our major wild life is in the ocean. As we have the chance to be in a mostly untouched area of Maldives the marine life is incredibale.
Mantas, Wale sharkes are like repeaters in the lagoon of Reethi Beach.
During a morning walk on the beach the clients can observe the delphines which are passing by.

FUTURE PLANS: Reethi Beach with its natural surounding will try to improve its existing services.

BAA ATOLL Until late '98 this atoll to the north of Male' Atoll was home to just a single resort. The administrative region of Baa Atoll is comprised of two geographical atolls. The small Goidhoo Atoll also known as Horsburgh Atoll to the south, is also part of the administrative region of Baa Atoll. The population of the atoll is about 11,000 spread out over ten of the islands out of a total of 50. Five are tourist resorts. The rest lie 'deserted', their vegetation untouched and beaches rarely trodden. Many of them are used for excursions by resorts in the atoll.

The reefs of this atoll are in pristine condition, and whether you are a diver or snorkeller the unspoilt natural beauty of the atoll is readily apparent. One of the secrets of Baa Atoll is the large numbers of mantas and whale sharks that visit the atoll, during the southwest monsoon especially from May to July.

Resorts in Baa Atoll offer transport from the airport by seaplane and speedboat, however due to the distance involved seaplane is the more convenient option.

The main occupation of the people of this atoll is tuna fishery, however some of the islands are well known for their skilled craftsmen. Most of the lacquer ware you see for sale in the souvenir shops and resort boutiques are the work of the people of Thulhaadhoo although the main occupation of the people of the island is fishing. Eydhafushi, the capital island was famous for it 'feyli' weaving - a wraparound skirt for women.

The French ship 'Corbin' was wrecked on Fulhadhoo in Goidhoo Atoll in 1602. It was here that Pyrard de Laval, the famous French explorer who was on board, had his first experience of the Maldives, which he wrote about later.
