Today's Port of Call: Rangali Island, Maldives

005276-12-The-Over-Water-Spa 005276-11-DeluxeBeachVilla
Glass floored spa, anyone? I thought so. Imagine a retreat so tranquil and relaxing that you never even think to put shoes on your feet. Days lounging staring at the azure Indian Ocean. Nights spent enjoying fine dining by candlelight at the unique Athaa undersea restaurant - one of seven world-class restaurants on the property.

The Maldives are actually a chain of islands in the Indian Ocean, the highest point of which is a scant 8 feet. Imagine staring for hours at sea level, marveling at the wonder of this naturally gorgeous location. This vacation paradise, the Conrad Maldives Rangali Island Hotel, occupies two of those islands, and is connected by an illuminated bridge.

For those of us with little ones, this deluxe tropical retreat does allow children. (My aunt and uncle have visited islands in the topics before that don't allow children.. so be sure to check when making plans.) Not only are they allowed, they have a kids club to keep them engaged and make the trip as memorable for them as possible.

Sublime relaxation and fun for the whole family. If you're looking for heaven on earth disconnected from your many devices and daily responsibilities, this is surely the spot.

What the beautiful people are saying...

That is just glorious. The teak woods give off such a rich and soothing aura. My bag is packed! When do we leave?

These pictures make me want to take a vacation! Ahh, how glorious it would be to just relax and enjoy the serenity of the world.


Im in dire need of one too... can you tell? :)

My husband went to teh Maldives before we were married, and i keep wishing we can go back together sometime! I will have to show him your post. I love it! Nic

OH.MY.GOD. Somebody take me there! Breathtaking photos, Franki. Love 'em all!

This is a great place to spend with your loved-ones. I can't help but to feel amazed about the aesthetic beauty of this place. It's a breathtaking view.

Nicole thats a fabulous honeymoon! I cant wait to go!

Wow. This is what I call beauty! In fact this is a dream for me, to have such place only for myself. Amazing, really. Thank you

Crazy but I have been here! My husband and I spent 8 wonderful nights here for my honeymoon and it's paradise! I recommend the Maldives and The Conrad to anyone. Seeing the photos takes me back to the best vacation I've ever taken.

So great to hear, Meredith!

Dont you love those vacation flashbacks? They keep me going between trips!


Something to say, gorgeous?
