We were fortunate to return to the Conrad Hilton on Rangali Island in the Ari Atoll in the Maldives in November of 2013 again after having visited this same island and resort 5 years ago. The last visit was amazing but with the new Quiet Zone pool and bar added to the second island this trip was even better. The Conrad Resort is really two islands connect by a 500m (1,500′) bridge. This cross lagoon bridge also serves as the drop off point for your arrival by sea plane. The resort is barefoot, unpretentious luxury in a six-star setting and has been voted “The Best Water Villas in the World”, “The Best Suites in the World” and “Best Spa Resort in the Maldives”.
The available rooms vary from beach villas amongst tropical foliage on the main island to different over water villas with some that include a separate spa treatment room in your villa. Views, floor plans and layouts vary but all are in great locations with easy access to all facitilies and have amazing interior layouts and furnishings. There is no “single” beach but the beach is around both islands, your on the beach at all times and the sand is great! On last feature is a Dhoni boat that runs continually from island to island, in case you do not want to enjoy the beautiful walk. To me this is island and resort is one of the most special places in the world. See the Rangali Island Destinations page for more information and pictures.
