Conrad Maldives sets global standard for Over-Water Villa design at the World Travel Awards winning “World’s Leading Water Villas”

Maldives Promotion House – The recently renovated Water Villas at Conrad Maldives Rangali Island have been voted the “Leading Water Villas in the World” at the prestigious World Travel Awards, while the luxury resort also collected the award for the “Leading Resort in the Maldives”.

“These awards are the crowning achievement of the year,” said general manager Peter Nilsson.  “We’re very proud that our renovated Water Villas have been chosen as the best in the world and would like to thank everyone who voted for us”.

These awards join the resort’s collection of new accolades.  In November, the Over-Water Spa was voted Asia’s “Most Innovative Spa” at the annual Asia Spa awards, while in August the resort was voted the “Best Spa Hotel and Resort in Asia” by online travel magazine  Also in 2012 its suites were called the “Best in the world” by Elite Traveler magazine and the influential German Welt Am Sonntag Newspaper nominated it one of the “10 Best Hotels in the World”.

The award-winning Water Villas at Conrad Maldives are set on stilts over a private lagoon and were completely rebuilt in late 2011 in a modern interpretation of traditional thatched-roof architecture.  An ocean-view bath tub, a private terrace, an over-water plunge pool with water jets and art by Maldivian artist Eagan Badeeu are some of the features that make these villas such a stand out.  The highlight of the architecture is the glass desk which is set over glass floor panels giving the impression that it is floating over the water below.  The décor of the villas features elegant natural tones of wood and soft whites with gentle shades of lavender and green while understated, recessed lighting adds to the contemporary feel.

Each villa boasts a private sundeck with wooden sun loungers, umbrella and plunge pool making this an ideal spot for private sun bathing during the day, or star gazing at night.  Steps leading from the sundeck into the welcoming waters of the lagoon below allow endless swimming and snorkelling options right in front of the villa.

The natural setting is complemented by the latest in modern design and amenities including flatscreen satellite TV, CD stereo with iPod connectors, DVD player, Nespresso coffee machine, TWG tea, air conditioning and ceiling fan, refrigerated mini bar and IDD telephones.  In the spacious bathroom, toiletries are by Aromatherapy Associates.
