My husband and I stayed at the Conrad Maldives for our honeymoon & it was absolutely magical. We stayed in their normal rooms--which were spectacular. I particularly loved the outdoor rain shower! So neat! The food was fabulous and the scuba diving was the best of my life.
I liked the layout of the regular pool better as it was closer to the bar, but there were too many kids running around. The adults "quiet zone" was a little slice of heaven. Particularly the 2 loungers in the water.
No trip or hotel will EVER be able to beat this place. If you can swing it, take this trip before it's too late!!!Recommended for:

I will say that I did love the resort, but I cannot give it 5 stars simply because of the cost. I found the very average food to be extremely overpriced. I will say that the rooms were fabulous. I stayed in an overwater villa that had its own hot tub and I also stayed in a beach villa. I wanted to try out both rooms and I was happy with both of them, but if I ever return, I will definitely spend my time in the overwater villa. That is, after all, why you are going there.

Do your best to imagine the most beautiful island paradise you can possible create in your mind...then come to Rangali and you'll realize you have no imagination.
Oh...and book a reservation for Ithaa well in advance. It's completely worth it.

I stayed here when it was the Hilton, before the underwater restaurant, before they built out the jetty on the north side, before the shopping complex -a bit disappointed that they built out shopping. I somehow found an awesome deal (back in 2003) for $210 for a beach front room. Now it's over $500 per room and goes up to close to $1000 for the over water bungalows.
The resort is 2 separate islands linked by a walkway. Each is a spit of sand that you can walk around in 20 mins. It's an experience in itself to get here. Fly to Male and then take a 30 min Air Maldivian pontoon plane flight - take off and land on water. The pilot was flying in shorts and bare feet. The resort feels like a Robinson Crusoe experience. You can look out across the horizon and see water forever w/o another blip on the horizon.
The water is warm and crystal clear. Snorkeling was awesome. Saw giant clams with fluorescent lips, tons of different coral, even a small shark in the water that freaked me out. They offer windsurfing, sailing, other water sports.
I was pleasantly surprised with the quality and variety of food. A unique experience was a teppanyaki dinner on the beach. The served sashimi in a ice ball sculpture - to keep it chilled. There was a movie night on the beach, with lounge chairs, drink service and popcorn. Awesome.
Some people might go stir crazy being isolated on an island and having to eat at the same places. So balance the nights for relaxation vs. boredom.
