Conrad Maldives Rangali Island 

A modern, luxe resort of two halves

With luxurious villas and the chance to dine under the sea, this is a twin-island retreat designed to dazzle.

A 500-metre footbridge connects the central hub of Rangali-Finolhu to the smaller Rangali Island. The atmosphere on Rangali-Finolhu is fun and lively — this is the heart of the resort and where you’ll find most of the activities and restaurants, including the Kids Club and Dive Centre.

Over on Rangali, it's all about that away-from-it-all vibe for which the Maldives is famous. There are places for yoga and meditation and a tranquil over-water spa. It’s also where you’ll discover an exclusive, candlelit Japanese live cooking venue on the beach, a cinema under the stars and a chic, adults-only ‘quiet zone’ with an infinity pool.

Why we love Conrad Maldives Rangali Island

  • A huge choice of room types makes this resort great for families or those travelling in slightly larger groups who want more space.

  • The dining options are wide-ranging and exceptional, including an under-the-sea restaurant.

  • The resort feels fresh following a multi-million-dollar refurbishment in 2022.

  • You get the best of both worlds here. There’s a buzz to the main island, but just across the bridge it’s an oasis of calm.

For families, an infinity pool overlooks a white sand beach and the Indian Ocean beyond on one side. and the Rangali Bar on the other. Comfy sunbeds on the shallow water platform mean you can dangle a toe while reading a novel.

The Quiet Zone pool on Rangali Island is adults-only and has a view over the lagoon. The poolside bar plays chilled-out music and serves a complete food and drinks menu.

There's a Parley Kit in each villa, encouraging guests to reduce the use of materials that heavily impact the environment and ocean. Each kit contains a reusable stainless steel water bottle and tote bag. The resort is reducing plastics by replacing plastic amenities such as toothbrushes with bamboo alternatives, replacing plastic key cards with wooden key cards, and providing a plastic-free breakfast such as yoghurt served in glass jars and paper-wrapped butter.

Conrad’s coral regeneration programme aims to protect the reefs surrounding the resort, including a coral nursery and a coral adoption programme.

Minimum age 16 in all overwater villas.

Minimum stay: 3 nights 26 Dec-06 Jan.
