Conrad Maldives Resort and Spa: A $50,000 experience ? Not quite. YouTube and Instagram Bloggers Paradise ? Yes – absolutely.

Sunset over the water bungalow stay at the Conrad Maldives December 2019 and January 2020. This is a beautiful resort, but showing its age. I recommend staying at the Waldorf Astoria as a better valued option (it’s brand new). I am still dealing with resort issues, which impacted our experience (not the best). Our all-time favorite pick is the Conrad Bora Bora in French Polynesia.

Included with business class and first class, is a limo pick up and transportation to the airport. Check-in online and transfer through security to the A5 lounge is seamless. You actually depart from the lounge right to the airplane so there is no gate per se.
