The island boasts the longest (1.8 km) sandbank of all the famous Maldivian resort islands - expect to spend a lot of time explorering it. A long beach should not disappoint you either; beach club with retro cinema and old-school arcade; spa with fitness centre and beach gym; tennis courts; watersports; four restaurants; old-school tuck shop.

In Seaside Finolhu, there is nothing ordinary, not least its swimming pool: a spectacular water playground with a small Palm Island in its heart where fire dancers, DJs, acrobats and other artists play at night.

9 One & Only Reethi Rah

Best Experience:   for Couples, for Family, Value, Beach, activities, spa

Before stay there, Reethi Rah for the island resort seems a bit conservative.

One of the Maldives most luxurious award-winning resort, Reethi Rah adheres to his own One & Only style. Purposefully not 'trendy', in the development stage to the top level of luxury, specializing in high quality service to its guests, such an experience you would have hard to find somewhere else in the Maldives.
