In the quarter of a century since it first opened, Conrad Maldives Rangali Island has continued to innovate, introducing several world-firsts to the Indian Ocean archipelago. The twin-island resort was the first in the Maldives to launch an underwater restaurant, Ithaa, allowing diners to peek into the underwater world of the Alifu Dhaalu Atoll while they dined; and is home to the first (and to this date, only) underwater residence in the Maldives, The MURAKA. It was also the first to offer a two-island concept, with one dedicated to families and the other reserved for an adults-only experience.
To mark the start of its next quarter century, the resort embarked on a multi-million-dollar makeover in 2019, remodelling its 50 overwater villas, creating a new teens club and breathing new life into three restaurants and bars, as well as other property-wide enhancements.
Popular among honeymooners and couples, the one- and two-bedroom overwater villas will emerge from their renovation this month, showcasing stylish new interiors rendered in a palette of natural wood and rattan colours, with integrated indoor-outdoor living spaces and private decks positioned for perfect sunrise and sunset views.
Furaavaru Club will keep teens occupied with engaging activities and experiences, while junior jetsetters will find their own private hideaway in the Majaa Explorer’s Hub, both located on the family-centric Rangali-Finolhu island. Grown-ups will find a new dedicated gym on the adults-only island, while the new-look overwater spa promises indulgent treats for all visitors.
