This Maldivian luxury haven’s ultimate goal is to deliver beyond all your expectations. The island itself is the second largest resort island in the Maldives so can cater to both families and couples with enough space for everyone. Explore the island on foot or bike and you’ll find there is so much to do. On our last visit over eight nights we still didn't get to certain parts of the island. The island's gardens are meticulously groomed and are absolutely beautiful.
On arrival you’re greeted by your private butler who will look after your every need. This stylish resort is wonderfully atmospheric in the evenings, with a resort dress code of smart casual and trousers for men. After dinner there’s always entertainment at the bar whether it be a fantastic five piece local band, an English acoustic guitar player or a jazz evening.
One&Only has three swimming pools, Serenity a 30-metre lap pool for Adults extending into the lagoon. A stunning infinity edge family pool on the beach that’s shaded by gorgeous frangipani trees with a beautifully grassed area next to the pool where families can kick a soccer ball and kids can run around. Finally the KidsOnly pool with their very own lifeguard and fun slide.
One&Only caters beautifully to families with a fantastic KidsOnly Club (ages 4 to 9) and OneTribe (ages 9 to 11) that have their own grounds and extensive programme of activities. They also have a Teens Club (ages 12 and up), unique to One&Only, designed for Kids that are in between a Kids Club and complete independence. Teenagers, have plenty to do with their own area on the island, ClubOne.
The villas are luxuriously elegant, private and always decorated with beautiful fresh orchids grown in One&Only’s own Orchid Green House, which guests are welcome to look around. When you arrive, let your Villa Host arrange the complimentary unpacking service so you can relax immediately.
The Beach Villas are one of the largest in the Maldives with high rafted ceilings and beautiful wooden doors that slide open out to your private beach. There’s so much privacy and lush tropical vegetation between each villa that you virtually have to ride your bike from one villa to the next. All Beach Villas have their own outdoor shower. The Beach Villas with Pool have large private pools that extend onto your beach with an outdoor dining area.
Exclusive to the Two-Villa Residence with Pool is your very own golf buggy/cart - very luxurious and convenient! This Villa is perfect for families with older children with two individual villas that can be separate or linked together. The Pool and outdoor shower are shared between the villas. If space and absolute privacy are on your list we would recommend The Grand Beach Villa with Pool, which are amongst the largest villas with two bedrooms, a beautifully private pool and luxurious daybed.
The Water Villas are extremely private, located all over the island in clusters of only four villas per jetty connected by over-water walkways. Arranged in a semi-circle shape, each facing out towards the lagoon on a different angle offering the ultimate privacy.
