First-rate Accommodations and Impressive Staff
Beyond the incredible scenery... Comments on Rooms: The rooms were top-notch. We stayed in three different room types during our weeklong stay: Beach Villa, Deluxe Villa, and Superior Water Villa. The difference between the water villas was not very noticeable except for increased privacy as you go up in price/size, and the bathroom is larger with a fuller view. Both were very spacious, though. Bonus: the quiet island was definitely more secluded and less busy + almost no families/children. We used the Beach Villa for one afternoon between check-out and plane departure. It was gorgeous. Outdoor tub and shower, direct beach access with designated chairs. The reef-side beach is a bit more rocky, FYI. All beach villas are on the big island which is busier and holds most of the families with children. Comments on Food: The breakfast buffets were so wonderful. The primary buffet had a fantastic fruit spread and wide range of options from traditional Japanese to Chinese to American to a full fresh juice bar. Ufaa, Mandhoo, and Vilu were our favorite dinner locations. The staff at Villu can't beat! Expect astronomical prices ($100+ per couple per meal). Comments on Staff: Everyone was so friendly. The scale of the operation is quite amazing, and it's impressive for the staff to be 'on' and both working hard and being friendly all the time. Kudos to the team. 100% recommend. Also recommend using Hilton points to save so much $$$
First Maldives Stay in this Amazing Resort
The family stayed for 6 nights at the Conrad Maldives after arriving on Chinese New Year Day and it turned out to be absolutely amazing. We stayed in the newly renovated 2-bedroom Deluxe Beach Villa (220), Superior Water Villa (334) and Premier Water Villa (314), which were all terrific, the PWV was by far the most gorgeous, private and modern (including a PS4 for my daughter). As Hilton Diamond member, we enjoyed breakfast and drinks at Vilu and Atoll on both sides of the two island resort (actually 3 in total). We also dined primarily at the Rangali Bar, Mandhoo, and also the world's first underwater restaurant - ithaa. We were lucky that most other dining guests left the Ithaa early and so we had the whole restaurant to ourselves to take beautiful memorable photos. Having in-room dining on your private overwater balcony with delicious Maldivian lobsters was also an excellent option! We also got to see and tour the absolutely stunning Muruka which is the world's first underwater residence. There were also a great variety of activities available to guests, paid and complimentary, and snorkeling in the morning was fantastic at the House Reef on the very east side of the Island. I would like to express my gratitude to our reservation supervisor Nadia for arranging the variety of beautiful Villas for our stay. In addition, a huge thank you for Asif and Maad for quickly sorting out any issues for us during our stay and accommodating any special requests we had, especially during the busy end of January season. You both have made our stay very memorable and have set an excellent example of the flawless service offered by the friendly staff at the Conrad Maldives. Finally, we would like to also thank Jessica (our host) for welcoming us, showing us around the island and providing any assistance we required during our stay. Everyone says you have to visit the Maldives at least once in your lifetime. But after our stay at the Conrad Maldives, we firmly believe that you really have to visit the Maldives 'not just once' in your lifetime!
Loved our time in the Maldives, stayed in a water villa with direct access to the lagoon. Couldn't fault the staff, food, ambience. Weather was great for the duration of our stay. Have been to other islands in the Maldives, and they're all great, but this one is definitely one of the best.
Amazing experience, staff were incredibly friendly and became good friends with some of them (still keep in touch). Very well maintained and everyones quite attentive to your needs. The resort even has a clinic with an on call physician (Dr Shahinda) who is incredibly caring and great at what she does dealing with all sorts of emergencies and medical complaints. And finally, the food and snorkling experience is unparalled. Highly recommend this resort!
An exotic, secluded, and unspoiled resort!!!
The whole experience at Conrad, Rangali island was fantastic! From the moment we met up with the Conrad staff at the airport to the last minute we left the island, we had experienced excellent services from the staff at the front desk, restaurants, housekeeping, store sales staff, and the cleaning crew. No matter when and where we ran into the staff, they always said hello. Especially the front desk manager Alex and our personal relationship person Niyaz, we cannot say enough about how they went above & beyond to satisfy our needs and our curiosity. The two atolls that Conrad is sitting on are beautiful!!! The villas are spread out and private, we hardly see more than 20 people during the day (other than breakfast time at the Atoll Market restaurant and dinner at Sunset restaurant). The adult pool had no more than 6 people at a time. Walking around the resort gave me a feel of being on a fantasy and secluded island. I LOVED to walk to the tip of the Ragalili atoll early morning where you can see the spectacular sunrise over the ocean, and the sunlight reflects on the water and sand. One can find many eggs in the sand laid by the local birds. The walk was so peaceful, tranquil, and beautiful!! Be sure to make a reservation for dinner at Ithaa undersea restaurant if you decide to splurge. I was debating if I should go for lunch & dinner, and dinner was the way to go because we had daylight for about 1 ½ hrs before it got dark. The 7-course meal served that night was excellent as well. It was truly once in a life kind of dining experience. To me, it was worthy every penny!! The food at the Sunset restaurant was fantastic as well, especially the risotto and the lamb chops – do not miss those! What an amazing time we had and what an exceptional staff that we have encountered!! Can’t wait to go back!!!!!
