Scattered in a ring around the island, the 150 villas are each individual patches of paradise. Designed to take advantage of the ultimate amenity — views of the gardens or the sea — the villas have an ample amount of space dedicated to being outdoors on porches and deck spaces; some rooms even have open-air rain showers or hot tubs. Whether you choose a garden villa set amidst tropical plants or a standalone water villa perched over the ocean, you will enjoy the laid back comforts of home within an idyllic setting.
For an over-the-top island getaway, choose an opulent water villa suite. Built on wooden stilts hovering over the pristine waters of the lagoon, these villas feature two luxurious bedrooms, a spacious lounge, walk-in closets, and deep bathtubs for long, lavish soaks. If you can pry yourself away, ask the staff to organize a day out on a catamaran, book a hydrating facial, or a fun ride on the famous banana boat.
The bars and restaurants at Reethi Faru Resort are just as exceptional for their settings as they are for their menus. From a cabana on the beach to a bungalow on stilts — these dining venues are where to soak in the sights and the sounds of the ocean from different vantage points.
