Hello from the Conrad Maldives!!

If you’re not caught up on the full trip itinerary check out this link first!


I’m going to keep this pretty short since I am trying to vacation and all, but I wanted to pop in and say hello. I arrived at the Conrad Maldives yesterday after a not so glamorous night at the Colombo airside transit hotel, and WOW, it really is all that it is hyped up to be!

The seaplane ride was just long enough to gawk at the beautiful views:

The welcome was warm and inviting right off the bat:

We immediately grabbed lunch at Mandhoo and saw the feeding for some great shark viewing:

Our room (the standard beach villa) is gorgeous. Although I’m not much of a fan of the outdoor shower to be honest:

And for just a couple more pictures:

Obviously full reviews of everything to come, including the over-water villa we’ll be moving to in a few days.

Frankly, when thinking of the Maldives I wasn’t sure I would “get it”. I’ve been to beautiful beaches before but as I type this listening to small waves lap at the beach, with a direct view of the water from the patio, it truly does feel incredibly special.

Follow along on social media

I’m not sure if I’ll be popping in again but I have been posting on social media quite a decent amount so be sure to check out our pages. We don’t use our social media here as much as we should but it’s certainly a lot of fun on a trip like this to do so!

  1. Instagram: including IG stories for tons of casual shots
  2. Twitter: random musings, kudos, and a picture here or there
  3. Facebook: non-character controlled updates and pictures

Thanks to Ben as well for keeping up with some regular posting!

  1. Wow Liz, I really enjoyed your photos! They are very different than those I usually see, good eye! I appreciate your candor and enjoy your perspective. I’ve never really considered the Maldives myself, but now I intend to read your full review and give it some thought.

    Thanks and Enjoy!
