Luxury bepoke holidays to Conrad, Maldives

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.

About Maldives

An Expressions tailor-made holiday to the Maldives is ideal for visitors looking for a relaxing and luxurious holiday in serene surroundings. The small republic of the Maldives is a luxury holiday destination that possesses some of the most astonishing and beautiful underwater life in the world. Consisting of over a thousand tiny coral islands, the Maldives is traditionally a fishing and trading nation which converted to Islam in the 12th century. Aware of its magnificent natural resources, in recent years the country has striven to maintain its traditional way of life and preserve the natural beauty of the islands whilst offering visitors a secluded and exclusive holiday experience. With turquoise seas, coral sand beaches, swaying palm trees and thatched huts and cottages, the Maldives represents for many the perfect picture of a typical deserted tropical island, a dream holiday destination offering peace and quiet with hotels which epitomise barefoot luxury. The Maldives hotels and island resorts we feature really are the very best. Whilst they all look idyllic, and clearly with the deluxe resorts we offer, you will receive luxurious accommodation and outstanding service, there are important distinctions that our sales team can draw your attention to: distance from Male and how you travel to the resort (speedboat, seaplane or domestic flight plus boat), the size of the island (some are very small and intimate, others are found on larger islands or connecting islands, beach or overwater villas (the overwater villas are usually, but not always, more expensive than beach villas) and the range of facilities (dining options, water sports and diving).

Highlights of the Maldives

For many, the Maldives offer some of the most fascinating underwater exploration available, from both snorkelling and diving. There are over a hundred different species of fish, from angelfish to flying fish, snapper and triggerfish, stingray and shark, as well as turtles and numerous corals of a multitude of colours. If your resort is near Malé then the capital is worth a brief visit with its mosques, traditional houses with rounded corners and tea shops with a selection of ‘short eats’ including rice pudding, curried fish cakes and small bananas.

Cultural highlights of the Maldives

Bodu beru traditional music and dance, traditional seating - the undholi (like a hammock) and the joli (a net seat hung from a wooden frame), local crafts including mats, lacquer work and jewellery, traditional dhoni boats.

Facts in brief
