With luxurious villas and the chance to dine beneath the waves, this is a spectacular twin-island retreat.
Conrad Maldives boasts the Maldives’ most iconic restaurant. Venture 16 feet below the ocean to dine at one of the world’s most extraordinary venues, with 180° views of marine life through its glass walls and arched glass roof. Topped off with gourmet Maldivian-Western fusion set menus and Champagne cocktails, beautiful Ithaa is unique and a little surreal. Pre-book a table around two weeks in advance so that you don’t miss out!
The two islands that make up the resort are quite distinct. A 500-metre timber footbridge connects the main hub of Rangalifinolhu, which is ideal for families, with the smaller Rangali Island. On Rangalifinolhu, the atmosphere is cool and lively. Almost every type of cuisine is covered here, from the eight show kitchens at the sand-floored Atoll Market to a cheese and wine bar. This is also where you’ll find the Majaa kids’ club and children’s pool. On Rangali Island, tranquillity and privacy are the order of the day. There’s the Koko Grill – an exclusive, candlelit Japanese live cooking venue on the beach, a cinema under the stars and a chic adults-only ‘quiet zone’ with infinity pool and tented lounge bar.
Accommodation is split over the two islands: spacious Beach Villas and Deluxe Beach Villas with private plunge pool on Rangalifinolhu Island and a range of water villas off Rangali Island. If you’re planning a pampering escape, the Retreat Water Villas have a separate private treatment room. Sunset Water Villas have their own private area of the lagoon and a master bedroom with revolving round bed.
