Hire your own Private Island at Conrad Maldives

By Paul Joseph

Luxury travellers seeking the ultimate secluded escape can now hire their own private island in the heart of the Maldives.

Located in the South Ari Atoll and reached by a 30-minute seaplane flight, the adult-only Conrad Maldives Rangali Island boasts 50 luxurious water villas, accommodating up to 100 guests.

Each villa has a private Jacuzzi or plunge pool and stairs leading directly into the water. For the ultimate treat, there are two Sunset Water Villas situated in their own lagoon only accessible by speedboat and private walkway, both featuring a glass floored living room, circular rotating bed and private infinity pool.

The island has three restaurants, an over-water spa, an infinity-edge pool and is fringed with sugary soft, white sandy beaches and crystal-clear aquamarine seas.

A team of island experts are on hand to arrange activities including beach bonfires, cinema under the stars, desert island picnics, beach volleyball tournaments, diving with manta rays, snorkelling with whale sharks, wakeboarding and sunset fishing.

Prices start from $470,000 (approximately £300,000) for a four night stay and includes the use of all 50 water villas, all meals and taxes.

Founded in 1985, Conrad Hotels & Resorts is an international brand of luxury hotels and resorts owned and operated by Hilton Worldwide.
