How to Reach Conrad Maldives Rangali Island from Maldives Airport?

The airport to resort is completely hassle-free, for the resort arranges the transfers. There is a 30-minute flight to the resort by seaplane which is not to be missed. You can also request chartered yachts from the resort to cruise from the mainland to Rangali island where the resort sits beautifully.

The only criteria are to share the international flight details with the resort five days before the stay. The staycationers will be met by a uniformed staff member outside the arrivals terminal at the airport and will be taken directly to the seaplane terminal lounge. Relax and enjoy a complimentary head and shoulder massage while you wait for the transfer. During the day there is complimentary breakfast and lunch buffets with an assortment of soft drinks and juices. At night, there is an exclusive dinner buffet. The lounge has a scenic view of the lagoon and enables you to watch seaplanes take off and land as you wait for your transfer. Sounds pretty dope right?
