One&Only Reethi Rah, Maldives

The iconic One&Only Reethi Rah is a favourite among our most discerning guests for very good reason and makes for a wonderful Maldives destination for couples and families alike. Highlights include: Rah Bar with its live music and cool cocktails; a range of activities such as a 26ft climbing wall (the first in the Maldives) and traditional Dhoni sunset sailing; Tapasake, a Japanese restaurant with outstanding views; spa treatments which include a therapy performed in a warm mineralised pool so you float while supported by your therapist (!); and Epicure - two temperature controlled wine cellars with over 4,000 bottles of wine, that doubles as a private dining venue ideal for special occasions. That’s just the tip of the luxury iceberg!

One&Only Le Saint Géran, Mauritius

One&Only Le Saint Geran is a tropical paradise perched on its own peninsula with two stunning coastlines. Not for no reason is this known as the ‘Grand Dame’ of Mauritian hotels; exquisite style permeates every detail, from the sublime One&Only Spa to the plentiful activity list with something to suit everyone.

In-room check-in ensures your holiday starts from the moment you arrive, while your butler will show you how to make a traditional Mauritian cocktail with the bottle of rum that’s waiting in your room…on the house. The KidsOnly club for three to 11 year olds is complimentary and open from 10am to 10pm on a daily basis (ideal for parents who want to have dinner ‘à deux’), with children’s interests indulged by splitting them into age appropriate groups for golf, tennis, windsurfing and swimming clinics.

One&Only Royal Mirage, Arabian Court, Dubai

A great mid-haul destination to simply ‘fly and flop’, Dubai offers year-round sunshine and plenty to see and do when you’re not soaking up those rays. Arabian Court is one of three properties in the exclusive One&Only Royal Mirage resort, a romantic choice nestled on a stretch of private beach.

You can enjoy dining at eight restaurants across the resort, including the chic Celebrities Restaurant with its elegant surrounds, world-class wines and sumptuous dishes. If you’re yearning for a romantic night out, head to The Jetty Lounge for dancing in the sand, a DJ playing every night and a relaxed, chilled-out vibe. A dedicated programme of Arabian-inspired activities – including sand sculpting and belly dancing - is available for little guests aged four to 11.

One&Only The Palm, Dubai

Enjoy the best of both worlds at the award-winning One&Only The Palm, which offers a setting of serenity and calm among the hustle and bustle of Dubai – yet is just a short, complimentary water taxi ride away from the bright lights of the city.

The boat transfer drops you off at One&Only Royal Mirage (from midday until midnight); ideal for a larger choice of restaurants. In the resort itself, there are three dining options under the expert culinary guidance of Michelin-starred chef Yannick Alléno; STAY, ZEST and 101 Dining Lounge and Bar.

One&Only Cape Town, South Africa

Sitting elegantly at the foot of Table Mountain and boasting the largest room sizes in the city - most of which offer a private balcony with stunning views - highlights of One&Only Cape Town include the indulgent One&Only Spa, fantastic location on the V&A Waterfront, and a private wine cellar which houses a spectacular 5,000 bottles!

Gastronomes need look no further, with two of the city’s most stylish eateries on site; ‘Reuben’s’ offers modern brasserie-style South African cuisine by celebrity chef Reuben Riffel, whilst Africa’s first Nobu restaurant by world-class master chef Nobuyuki Matsuhisa serves exquisite contemporary sushi and sashimi.

The multi award-winning One&Only Spa is the largest in the city and has its own ‘Spa Island’ with experience showers, vitality pools and couple’s treatment villas. Perfect for a chill before venturing further into the Rainbow Nation for wine tasting, safaris and boat trips.

One&Only Palmilla, Mexico

Located on the stunning west coast of Mexico, One&Only Palmilla is the only luxury resort in Los Cabos to boast its own swim-friendly beach, with complimentary non-motorised watersports available.

Los Cabos is a prime spot for whale watching in the winter months and the wonderful resort Concierge can also arrange swimming with dolphins nearby. The region also benefits from incredible night skies, with an expert on hand in the resort to talk you through the constellations and names of the stars.

For extra privacy and space, ask your Travel Specialist about Villa Cortez, an onsite villa which sleeps eight guests, boasting its own spectacular beachfront infinity-edge pool and cinema (popular, we’re told, with the Hollywood elite to screen their latest movies!).

As well as the incredible properties featured in our September sale, One&Only also offers stunning hotels in more off-the-beaten-track destinations…

Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley, Australia

The luxurious One&Only Wolgan Valley is located less than a three-hour drive from Sydney in the World Heritage-listed Greater Blue Mountains region. Set within a 7,000-acre wildlife conservancy between two national parks, the resort makes the very most of its gorgeous setting in every detail of its design, with activities including horse riding and wildlife safaris.

It is Australia’s first carbon neutral resort, and even the spa uses products that are 100% natural and chemical-free. With treatments and therapies inspired by the Blue Mountains – such as the mountain aroma massage - the timeless Spa will leave you feeling rested, revived and ready to explore your stunning surrounds.

One&Only Nyungwe House, Rwanda

A new addition to the ever-growing One&Only portfolio, Nyungwe House is set to open in October 2018. Nestled within a working tea plantation and surrounded by the ancient rainforests of Nyungwe National Park, the resort embraces its spectacular location, offering a range of unique, immersive and once-in-a-lifetime experiences that can be crafted to your exact preferences.

Explore the grounds with a local guide, as they share fascinating tales about Rwanda; learn more about the conservation initiative in place to protect this precious corner of the world; or soar over the forests and lakes by helicopter, embarking from the resort’s own private helipad. Of course, wildlife sightings are a true highlight of any stay here; track wild chimpanzees with experts, embark on a specialist bird-spotting tour, or look out for 13 different monkey species along the lush forest trails.

If the resort’s location is its star feature, the offerings inside come a (very!) close second. A sleek infinity pool surrounded by rainforest is joined by the sanctuary of the One&Only Spa, showcasing a menu of treatments inspired by nature. As for dining, expect nutritious, delicious and locally-inspired cuisine in a truly breathtaking setting.
