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
As a repeated guest, I really appreciate every stay in this little piece of paradise. What I love most is the people, all team members, managers and even the other guests. It's obvious to me that the beautiful nature and surroundings with the green islands with white beaches in the deep blue sea makes people happy!
I have stayed in different types of villas on the beach and over water, but this time I was lucky to experience the brand new Two bedroom De luxe Beach Villa. It was stunning with a lot of space, and the second bedroom with twin beds heavy air-conditioned. The villa has both in-door and out-door shower. The vanity area and bathroom is pure luxury with marble tiles and frosted glass.
As always lot of gourmet food and fine wine experiences. We stayed during Halloween and had a lot of fun watching the show and competition between different departements of staff and even guests with costume and make-up!! Great evening!
I really look forward to seeing everyone again when I return to Rangali in January.
Just spent a week in paradise. One can’t compare this place with anywhere else. The beauty, the colours, the climate, the luxurious villas, the restaurants , the service and last but not least the people. They are kind , friendly and are there for you.If you want to feel like royalty this is the Island to visit. You won’t regret it.
One of the best hotels we’ve been in. Excellent services, great view, location pretty close to the well known locations for tourists. Staff is really friendly and considering details. The Summit bar & Terrace on the 14th floor is excellent!
