The Luxury of Being Yourself at Conrad
Maldives Promotion House – One of Maldives’ luxurious resorts Conrad Maldives Rangali Island will be serving up the perfect Christmas present with its new ‘Luxury of Being Yourself’ Christmas package. Priced at USD 10,000, the package is entirely tailor-made to the guests’ desires and includes a private sunset cruise on the resort’s luxury yacht to a deserted island where fine wines, dinner and musicians await to serenade the couple throughout the evening. To ensure perfection, the guests will choose their favourite wines from the 25,000 bottles in the wine cellar while the chef will cook their desired dishes for them.
“Who hasn’t fantasised about just jumping on a yacht and sailing away into a tropical sunset with your own chef, wine and musicians?” General Manager at Conrad Maldives Rangali Island, Carsten Schieck said. “We’re in the business of making dreams come true and that’s exactly what the ‘Luxury of Being Yourself’ package is about, a fantasy made real”.
Launched in time for Christmas 2011, the ‘Luxury of Being Yourself’ package will also be available throughout 2012. Guests booking the package get the resort’s beautiful yacht all to themselves for the evening where they can sail away under the stars to wherever they please, stopping to admire a coral reef or to watch dolphins play. On board the yacht will be the Sommelier with a selection of the guest’s hand-picked wines which could include the 1947 Chateau Mouton Rothschild or maybe even the 1982 Chateau Petrus. Guests note that wines over USD 1000 per bottle may be charged in addition to the package.
Also on board is Executive Chef Mark Rowsell-Turner who will create a memorable feast of the guests’ favourite dishes using only their favourite ingredients, be it foie gras and finest steak to much more exotic ingredients. As the yacht sails out under a starry sky, the musicians will set the mood by playing the couple’s favourite songs.
Back on dry land, Conrad Maldives pulls out all the stops for Christmas and New Year celebrations. Events include a New Year’s Eve show on the beach with live bands, fire eating, acrobatics and the first-ever trapeze show in the country. Midnight is marked by a spectacular fireworks show followed by a DJ and barefoot dancing in the sand until the small hours of the morning.
The ‘Luxury of Being Yourself’ package can be booked directly through the resort and requires a 14 days’ notice.
