    Our opinion

    Conrad Maldives Rangali island is a really good choice of island resort in the Maldives. It is a large, vibrant resort of top quality with outstanding choices of dining and leisure facilities but with added extras that are unusual, for example, its undersea restaurant with a ceiling of glass. There are beach villas, overwater villas and an overwater spa retreat with in-room spa treatments.

    Hotel description

    The Conrad Maldives Rangali island enjoys a breathtaking location on the two tropical islands of Rangali and Rangalifinolhu, joined by a bridge across the shallow, turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean. The resort has been designed and executed in a style that is totally in keeping with the region, with attractive use of wood and thatch, the open air and the soft coral sand. The Beach Villas all face the sea on Rangalifinolhu and boast private, open-air gardens with rain showers as well as stunning bathing pavilions. Deluxe Beach Villas are bigger in size and have a delightful plunge pool in the garden. Across the water on Rangali, the Water Villas are all built over the lagoon on timber stilts. Decorated in the natural materials of wood, cane and palm leaf, the villas are spacious and elegant with redwood oak floors, cedar walls and teak decks, from which steps lead you down into the water. The resort has seven world-class restaurants, including Ithaa, the world’s only undersea restaurant, with walls and ceiling built entirely out of glass. Here, you can enjoy Maldivian cuisine with Western and Asian influences while uniquely looking out at the marine life around and above you. On the main island is the Atoll Market restaurant, which opens out onto the pool and faces the ocean. International cuisine is served here from live cooking stations. On this island you will also find the overwater Mandhoo spa restaurant and the Sunset Grill. On Rangali guests can dine al fresco at the Vilu restaurant overlooking the lagoon, at the underground Wine Cellar serving a selection of gourmet Euro-Asian cuisine, or the Koko Grill where guests can enjoy Japanese teppanyaki on the beach. The islands with their soft, white, pink-tinged sand, warm waters, and beaches fringed with coconut palms provide not just classic sunbathing in glorious natural scenery but also numerous sports and leisure activities, with an excellent range of water sports and two spas. The resort’s overwater spa retreat, built over the lagoon on Rangalifinolhu, consists of 21 Spa Water Villas with their own private treatment room and a spa retreat with nine treatment rooms, a retail area and a hair and beauty salon. Please ask us for further details of this superb destination spa; we also arrange holidays with prices including meals and treatments. The child policy for the hotel is such that families with young children will be accommodated in the Beach Villas and the Deluxe Beach Villas, leaving the Spa Retreat and the Water Villa Island for persons aged 12 or over. The resort offers excellent accommodation and facilities in a truly Maldivian ambience.
