If you’re looking to escape the outside world, Maldives is the place for you. This picture perfect destination with coconut trees kissing the sky, azure waters lapping on dazzling white sand beaches, turquoise lagoons and coral reefs teeming with aquatic flora and fauna; Maldives continues to mesmerize travelers from all over the world. The Conrad Maldives Rangali Island is one such place where you can lose yourself to this sanctuary of bliss. This ritzy resort occupies high-end beach and water villas spread across two private islands, joined by a footbridge and surrounded by the Indian Ocean.
We chose the stunning Retreat Water Villa as our Suite of the Week. The villa is set 100 metres off the tip of the main island and is the ideal escape from the outside world. Measuring 1615 Sq. Ft., each villa features two rooms, one with its own double spa treatment room as well as a whirlpool on the large sun deck with steps leading down into the ocean below. The suite is done tastefully in natural elements and effortlessly blends contemporary Maldivian style to sit in harmony with nature. The use of colors blue and white is an example of the room blending with the sky and ocean.
We absolutely love the bathroom which is accented with large windows that can be fully opened to create an indoor outdoor effect or simply closed allowing the room to be illuminated with natural light. Wherever you are in your water villa, the azure blue waters of the Indian ocean is always in your sight allowing you to feel at one with nature. The ocean is your own private pool any time of the day or night. What more could one ask for?
If feeling relaxed in the confines of your own water villa is not enough, you can find complete peace and serenity at one of their two award-winning spas set on stilts above the lagoon. Enjoy a blissful massage in a treatment room with glass flooring so you can watch the fish swim by. Trust us — nothing beats the blues away than an experience like this!
…and if you’re still yearning for more, a dinner at their underwater eatery is another must do. Watch the fish swim by as you enjoy a romantic dinner with your loved one. The resort has 8 restaurants and 4 bars, so you are spoilt for choice when it comes to dining options.
There is no dearth to the things you can do. From navigating aquatic gardens to swimming with whale sharks & snorkeling with fish and turtles; to taking in amazing Maldivian sunsets, or a cruise on the Indian ocean; the options are endless.

Why should you splurge on it?
Splurge on this one because of the privacy and comfort it offers. The villas are secluded to offer you all the privacy you need. The fact that it sits above the water so you can step out any time into an ocean to call your own is reason enough indeed. Luxury in the lap of nature is how we would sum up this one.
