This luxuriously award-winning resort spread across two white sand islands, Rangali and Rangalifinolhu, is the epitome of castaway luxury.
No other Maldivian resort offers more choice for food lovers, with eight restaurants and four bars, including the Maldives’ first authentic Chinese restaurant Ufaa, heralded by celebrity chef Jereme Leung. Dine under the stars at Koko Grill Restaurant, sample rare wines underground in The Wine Cellar, or head 50 metres out to sea for organic fare at Mandhoo Spa Restaurant. Or for the ultimate experience, try eating 16 feet below sea level, at the amazing under water restaurant, Ithaa - the world's original under sea restaurant.
At the tip of the island is the Maldives’ first Spa Retreat; a paradise within paradise and a sanctuary for complete relaxation with in-villa treatment rooms and a private sun deck with a Jacuzzi. The Over Water Spa also includes treatments rooms with glass floors, providing entrancing views of the marine life below. There are also endless opportunities for watersports, diving and excursions.
South Ari Atoll, 30 minutes seaplane transfer from Malé International Airport, or 20 minutes domestic flight and 30 minutes speedboat ride.
150 villas. On Rangali Island a sumptuous range of Water Villas have ocean-view baths and direct access to the lagoon below, standard water villas have been equipped with private pools on the deck. Meanwhile on Rangalifinolhu Island, the Deluxe Beach Villas each enjoy a private plunge pool and bathing pavilion.
There’s so much to do at Rangali Island that you’ll want to keep coming back again and again. The resort is suitable as both a luxuriously romantic getaway and an exciting family holiday destination. Children are kept entertained with the array of indoor and outdoor activities, hosted by the excellent youth team. The unique Ice Cream Spa programme, aimed at four to 12 year olds, has been specially designed to help your children unwind, while the watersports centre delivers action-packed adventures for the whole family to enjoy – why not try catamaran sailing or water cycling? Children over the age of five can also take advantage of the dive centre – certified instructors will take them to see the manta rays at the popular dive site, Manta Point.
Conrad Maldives is also great for excursions – the resort is really keen for you to explore the Maldives and Indian Ocean, so has devised an extensive programme that suits every need. The Sunrise Dhoni Snorkelling trip is perfect for all snorkelling fans, and the Whale and Shark Excursions are enjoyable for both divers and non-divers. With so much on offer, you’ll never want to go home!
Conrad Maldives Rangali Island is the perfect resort for food-lovers – there is a grand total of eleven restaurants and bars, the majority of which being open-air with sea views. We’ll start with the Atoll Market, a unique buffet-style restaurant comprising eight kitchens from around the world. Dine barefoot under fragrant frangipani trees whilst sipping on some wine from the exciting selection on offer.
Another highlight is The Cheese & Wine Bar, which is home to 101 of the world’s best cheeses, all selected by the Maître de Fromage. Sumptuous and intimate with a floor made of black volcanic sand from New Zealand, this gorgeous bar plays host to regular fondue and tapas evenings, as well as informal wine and cheese tastings.
Regular live music and events can be found at the sand-floored Rangali Bar, the social hub of the resort. If this isn’t enough, then there are plenty of other special events going on to keep you entertained – think full moon dinners, themed beach barbecues, an open-air cinema, casino nights and traditional Maldivian musical performances. The guest chef and guest winemaker programmes simply make the whole experience all the more delicious. For something truly special, book a magnificent seafood supper – freshly grilled lobsters served with champagne on the beach.
Perhaps the best thing about Rangali Island is Ithaa, which means ‘mother of pearl’ in Maldivian. Not only are guests at Ithaa treated to a six-course set dinner menu complemented by a wine concept dedicated to champagne, they will enjoy their meal in an unforgettable environment – five metres below the surface of the sea. Featuring 180 degrees of panoramic views, this undersea restaurant offers an extra special perspective on the surrounding coral gardens.
