Whether you’re swimming in the company of sea creatures or just watching them from your villa suspended over the sea, water is a way of life at One&Only Reethi Rah. Few islands in the Maldives are more idyllic or spacious than the one that houses this decadent compound, where a dozen beaches – that’s right, 12 of them – beckon from villas with cathedral ceilings and shaded verandahs, some with a private plunge pool. A chic boutique sells Stella McCartney swimwear you’ll love to flaunt, and sommelier Jean Sebastien Azaïs oversees one of the largest wine cellars in the world – some 30,000 bottles, ranging from rare Bordeaux to boutique South African labels.
