This is where barefoot luxury meets unpretentious style. Home to whale sharks, manta rays, dolphins, turtles and an excellent coral reef, Conrad Maldives was recently voted the "Best Luxury Resort in the Maldives".
Reached by a 30-minute seaplane flight, this luxury resort offers three resort experiences across two islands and is home to 11 restaurants and bars including Ithaa Undersea Restaurant, 101 of the world's best cheeses, the underground Wine Cellar and 20,000 bottles of fine wines.
For relaxation, there are two spas, an extensive range of excursions, diving and watersports - including a submarine - a vibrant coral reef and beautiful white sand beaches.
Built in November 2011 both of the two-bedroomed Beach Suites (up to 668m2) offer prime beachfront living on the main island, one facing the sunrise and one the sunset. The luxurious suites include two private plunge pools set in landscaped gardens to give the luxurious options of chilling out in the pool just steps from the comfort of the villa. Each suite has a glorious sun-filled living room with floor-to-ceiling windows and two outdoor garden-bathrooms with a courtyard, fountain, bathing pavilion, open-air shower. Guests staying in a Beach Suite enjoy the services of a personal Island Host. The setting is complemented by the latest in design and amenities including private terraces with sun loungers, umbrella, and coffee table, flatscreen satellite TV, CD stereo with iPod connectors, DVD player, espresso tea/coffee machine, air conditioning and/ ceiling fan, refrigerated mini-bar and IDD telephones. Toiletries are by Aromatherapy Associates. Maximum occupancy: six people.
