Barefoot luxury. The resort encompasses two adjacent islands, connected by a 500-meter footbridge, and offers both beach villas and the coveted overwater variety. Teak and white stone evoke a feeling of peace and openness. Local artwork dots the walls, and seafoam-greens and blues are the palette of choice for the interiors. Everything is clean and pristine, much like the Maldives themselves.
Bed & Bath
The villas, whether on the beach or over the water, are spacious and private, with individual plunge or whirlpools. All are fashioned of white stone with traditional thatch roofs. The expansive 1,600-square-foot spa villas have turquoise and white sleeping areas with vaulted ceilings, ceiling fans and teak floors. Bathrooms have his-and-hers sinks, large Roman baths and separate spa areas for in-room massages. Of course, all rooms have amazing views of the ocean.
With numerous dining options, guests are spoiled for choice, especially those who love wine: The resort has the country’s first wine cellar. The Cheese and Wine Bar, with its cool black sand, is a refuge on a hot day. Sunset Bar and Grill is the best spot for savoring delicious local seafood while watching the sunset from your private dining deck. Ithaa Undersea Restaurant is the choice boite on the island, as diners feel like Jacques Cousteau admiring the array of sea creatures swimming overhead. And if guests want sea views without dining, one of the spas is overwater and offers massages in rooms with glass floors.
In the Area
Situated in the southernmost section of the Maldives, the resort is fairly isolated. But that doesn’t mean you’ll be left with nothing to do. The kids-only Ice Cream Spa allows youngsters to enjoy facials and massages. Nemo, the resort’s three-person mini-sub, takes guests on 30-minute undersea adventures. Personal trainers are on hand to give you boxing lessons at the gym. The island’s three boutiques offer guests bathing suits and other essentials they may have forgotten. Nearby Mandhoo Island boasts a small village and gardens in which you can eat the local fruit.
How to Get There
The property is maintained extremely well. The landscapes are breathtaking and peaceful. Over water villa that we stayed in was impeccably maintained. Food was amazing but pricey. The undersea restaurant is a unique experience. Had a great variety of water sport activities. Dive center staff were exceptional. We got lucky to snorkel with a Whale shark and Manta rays. Overall had the best relaxing luxurious vacation ever!
We had 7 glorious nights at Conrad Rangali. There are not adequate words to describe the breathtaking environment. The bluest of waters and fish in abundance. The staff at Rangali without exception were superb, friendly and welcoming and they went out of their way to ensure we had a brilliant holiday. In particular Hassan Waheed and his team assisted my husband following a fall. The staff in all of the restaurants and at the Rangali Bar always made us welcome.
An experience at Ithaa Underwater Restaurant should not be missed, thank you Adam.
Breakfast at Mandhoo was fantastic, thank you Leo, breakfast will never be the same.
We can’t wait to return.
From checkin to checkout this place is faultless. It truely is the most magical place on earth. The staff are amazing, the food exceptional, the location is beyond words. We did not want to leave. If you are going to the Maldives then you MUST stay here.
