We have been to Rangali once as a Hilton and then as a Conrad in '08, '09, '10 and '12. Clearly, we love Ranglai. I always intend to post a review upon our return but it all really has been said before...the island is beautiful, the service fantastic. It is so nice to see many of the same Conrad staff members upon our returns - makes us feel at home.
As people have commented, the island and its surrounding are even more spectacular in person than in the photos. We have stayed in a number of different types of villas - it really comes down to personal preference. It is worth trying a villa on the smaller island to compare it with villas on the main island - the smaller island seems to be a bit more removed and serene. The spa/retreat villas also are wonderful and we do not find them to be too remote; we actually enjoy the walk to/from the villa.
The view at the end of the day from either the Vilu bar area or the Quiet Zone beach bar area certainly will afford you an opportunity to unwind. There are so many shades of blue water !!! Also, you frequently will see baby black tipped sharks or rays swimming near the shore line.
Needless to say, we are pondering a return vacation to Rangali in the not too distant future.
