The 150 villas of the Conrad Rangali Island Resort hotel in the heart of the Maldives archipelago, are spread over the sands of the islands of Rangalfinolhu and Rangali in the southwest of the Ari atoll. This luxury establishment is daringly minimalist, plunging guests into a refined universe. The sober, elegant and spacious villas mounted on stilts, contain Philippe Starck furniture and possess every possible modern comfort. Connected to the sea by a private staircase, the Water Villas possess an exclusive view of the Indian Ocean, casting a veil of romance over this gentle island. From the spa salons to the underwater restaurant, the Conrad Maldives Rangali Island celebrates the curative and culinary virtues of Maldivian culture, in a totally transparent décor.

Rangali Island

The Maldives archipelago is one of the most beautiful in the world. Located about 750 kilometers from Sri Lanka, and India to the south, this ensemble of small, idyllic islands attracts visitors from all over the world thanks to its all year round mild, never hostile, pleasant climate. According to the local inhabitants however, the best months are February, March and April since they’re the driest.

The hospitality is unequalled on this land where tourism plays an important role in the economy and growth of the country. The official language is Divheli although most of the inhabitants speak fluent English. Malé, the capital, on the island of the same name, is the largest and most populated city in the Maldives. To discover local Maldivian customs and traditions, there’s nothing better than immersing oneself in the heart of the city for a few hours. But for others who would rather immerse themselves in the Indian Ocean, the experience will be equally memorable. Very popular with deep-sea divers, the ocean depths of the Maldives are a gold mine of underwater life, and there are several diving centers on a number of islands. It’s an excellent opportunity for young and old alike to discover the myriad multi-colored fish with exotic names, as well as immense manta rays which can be as long as six meters, or to swim with the rather friendly dolphins.

Two islands for only one hotel


In the southwest of the Ari atoll, a half hour by seaplane from Malé, the recently renovated Conrad Rangali lives up to and surpasses its reputation as the Maldives’ most luxurious hotel. This five-star complex possesses 150 villas, one more beautiful than the other, on two magnificent islands connected by a 500-meter pontoon.

On Rangalifinolhu island, we find the Beach Villas, with coconut thatched roofs, unparalleled comfort and modern design. They’re equipped with a small bathroom pavilion in the garden with a large bathtub and a shower with a big showerhead. These villas all have a magnificent view of the sea, and the terrace, shaded by tropical trees, gives guests total privacy.

On Rangali Island, we find the Water Villas, all on stilts and located at the end of a pontoon, for greater intimacy. The villas are filled with extreme splendor and elegance. The décor is refined, with bathrooms facing the ocean, some of which are the work of the celebrated designer, Philippe Starck. The most spacious villas have a living room area and from their terraces, there’s a staircase leading directly to the Indian Ocean.

The jewels of the hotel however, are the two 250 square meter deluxe Sunset villas, built on a private jetty with boat transportation, a whirlpool bathtub, a living area with a transparent floor for admiring the fish a private butler, and many other features. Gastronomy is featured as well with no less than seven restaurants and bars, including the magical Ithaa underwater restaurant, built six meters deep and surrounded by immense windows, enabling guests to admire the multi-colored fish and the sharks which frequent the ocean.

The personnel of the spa are only too happy to offer you exceptional moments of gentle relaxation thanks to the treatments practiced here in a peaceful and serene atmosphere.

Rangali, the smallest of the complex’s two islands, offers a pure, natural décor and the luxury one is accustomed to in the Maldives. The total renovation of the Water Villas assures guests that the rooms will retain their reputation as the most remarkable villas in the country.” Carsten Schleck, General manager, Conrad Rangali
