Built in traditional Maldivian thatched-roof style, the 150-square metre villas are clustered around the Spa Retreat, one of two spas at the resort. Their spacious design blends contemporary Maldivian style in a natural harmony of wooden interiors and a breezy indoor-outdoor feel where the Indian Ocean is always in view. Luxury touches include a split-level sundeck with Jacuzzi, sun beds and dining area, as well as an indoor dining-and-lounge area next to the master bedroom and plenty of daybeds dotted around the villa. The bathroom’s clever design ensures that the windows can be fully opened to create an ‘outdoor bathing experience’. Steps from the private sundeck make it easy to snorkel to the nearby coral reef.

Younger travellers are welcomed at Conrad Maldives, with an active kids’ club and a host of activities and excursions to do every day.
