Oft-regarded as one of the best resorts in the world Conrad Maldives Rangali Island is simply heavenly.
Set across two stunning islands in the South Ari Atoll that are connected by a 3,200m (3.200’) bridge, the resort is home to a staggering 50 water villas, 79 beach villas and 21 spa villas that come with their own delightful pampering rooms.
Add to that 12 highly reverred restaurants and bars, two world-beating spas and 42 dive sites nearby, all complete with sweeping views of turquoise surrounds and shimmering purple sunsets, it's no wonder it's list of awards is so lengthy.
The Conrad Hilton couples the striking natural beauty the Maldives is adored for with levels of luxury you couldn't possibly imagine.
Located off of the main stretch of the island is one of the most breathtaking spots.
The Muraka is a two-storey, three-bedroom residence unlike any other - the master bedroom is submerged 5m (16’) below sea level. With floor-to-ceiling windows and a 180-degree curved acrylic dome, staying here is a rare opportunity to immerse yourself in a subaquatic dreamlike reality.
Take the connecting elevator down and as soon as the doors open you are hit by the brilliant azure of the Indian Ocean and a dazzling kaleidoscope of marine life.
Located off of the main stretch of the island is one of the most breathtaking places in the world to fall into a heavenly slumber.
Sequestered from the rest of the resort, this truly is your own little slice of paradise. Of course, you have your own 24-hour private butler service and private chef and on-call fitness trainer on hand here, but the real pièce de résistance is the complete serenity this unique residence provides.
Amazing panoramas of the coral gardens and endless views of the shimmering blue Maldivian waters watching fish, sharks and turtles swim past whilst you dine is the stuff of dreams.
If providing the world’s first underwater residence wasn’t enough, the Conrad Maldives is also responsible for the world’s first underwater restaurant, Ithaa. Located five meters below the surface, Ithaa offers a distinctive menu showcasing local spices and produce, blended with Western influences. This is combined with amazing panoramas of colorful coral gardens and endless views of the shimmering Maldivian waters. Admiring fish, sharks and turtles swim past whilst you dine is a veritable delight.
One thing to keep in mind, is that Ithaa is relatively small and can only accommodate up to 14 guests at any one time. Requesting your yacht charter broker to book in advance comes strongly recommended.
If dining underwater isn’t for you, there are 11 other dining venues onsite that will satiate the needs of even the most demanding taste buds. From feasting on gourmet cuisine 100 meters out at sea in the Mandhoo Spa Restaurant to the chilled Wine Cellar six feet below sea level offering five-course meals and over 15,000 bottles of wine, every cuisine is catered for in the most beautiful surroundings.
For an overnight stay there are choices aplenty. Beautiful beach villas are scattered in the tropical gardens, courtyards are central to the stunning living areas and huge outdoor garden-bathrooms offer a taste of the tropics with ingenious landscaping ensuring total seclusion.
Water villas are set on stilts over the ocean and feature private sun decks, whilst ocean view bathtubs offer sweeping views of the turquoise waters and the inevitable iridescent sunsets.
Glass floors, private plunge pools, marble bathrooms and steps directly into the ocean are all on offer depending upon the type of villa you select.
And of course a stay on a luxury resort in the Maldives wouldn’t be complete without the chance to enjoy an exciting excursion with the Conrad Hilton offering everything from big game fishing to sunset cruises.
Thanks to its location in the South Ari Atoll, there are also 42 dive sites to explore allowing you to swim with whale sharks, snorkel with manta ray or watch the playful spinner dolphin in their natural habitat.
