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
Everything about the resort on trip advisor is correct, beautiful place with some of the best snorkeling i have seen.
The marine life is amazing! We stayed for 5 nights in an overwater spa room which was as described on the website.
The only drawback of the whole trip was the added charges for everything, but it was expected as so many other reviews have mentioned it.
If you are into snorkeling i would thoroughly recommend this place.
Big thank you to Akinori-san and his team for making our return stay at the property so memorable. First impression is always everlasting and when compared to this returned visit, I should admit that the Conrad delivered again. The service was top notch and always smiling staff compensated for occasional overcast days and made our stay truly enjoyable. I was glad to see that the resort is not standing still but strives to stay innovative and competitive. Accommodating villas combined with natural beauty of the island and house reef in my opinion still makes it one of the top destinations in the Maldives.
Beautiful picturesque resort in the Maldives! This place was amazing. We were only supposed to stay three nights but we were so in love we extended another three nights! Overwater Spa was incredible, happy hour drink prices in front of sunset were a plus, and the dive staff for diving was great! Food was delicious and the staff was very nice everywhere you went. Would definite recommend and we can’t wait to go back!
We spent five nights here for what proved to be a romantic, and luxurious, anniversary stay.
Our accommodations were in the overwater villas with a sunset view. This location, was very secluded and quiet, yet easily accessible, to the main island, via a short Dhoni boat ride.
Dining options, though expensive, were numerous in variety, and exceptional in their quality.
What truly made the trip both memorable and enjoyable was interactions with staff. All staff we encountered were uncompromising in ensuring guest needs were met while providing service with a smile. There was always a genuine sincerity and willingness to help.
The resort is especially fortunate to have their concierge, Svitlana, as a member of their team. Her smile and energy were infectious and she never failed to respond quickly in assisting us set up reservations for activities or dinners. We left feeling as though we’d made a new friend after engaging in numerous personable conversations.
We would also recommend partaking in the photo shoot that the resort makes available. The photographer, Ismail, was talented and had us laughing during our session; it made for memorable souvenir photos from the trip.
We look forward to our next visit and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the Conrad Maldives to anyone considering a visit to the Maldives!
Maledives...a holiday destination full of beautiful luxury Resorts. You almost get dizzy when you have to chose one of them. After visiting three other resorts in the past, we decided to book our stay at Conrad Maledives Rangali Resort. What a choice! I couldn‘t imagine that this resort would outclass the other resortsI by that margin. Despite the resorts stunning architectural design and amazing beaches, Conrad Maledives convinces with top quality food and beverages. From the first to the last minute the General Manager Stefano and his staff try to make your stay an unforgettable holiday you‘ll never forget!
Then there is this amazing underwaterworld around the resort! Best place we have dived yet and no wonder they invested in the breathtaking underwater restaurant and the fabulous underwater villa.
Next time we go back to the Maledives we won‘t get dizzy by choosing one of the resorts ...we know already now that we will go back to Conrad Maledives.
