With an extensive wine cellar of over 20,000 bottles, Conrad Maldives Rangali Island further enhances its guests’ wine experience this year with the introduction of three new ways of enjoying champagne at this luxury resort: ‘Bubbles on the Beach’, ‘Sparkling Hour’ and ‘The Perfect Sundowner’.
Priced at US$800, ‘Bubbles On The Beach’ is the ultimate Robinson Crusoe experience for those who prefer their desert island experience to be as luxurious as possible. Guests are whisked off by speedboat to a deserted island where an indulgent picnic hamper, complete with a bottle of champagne, awaits them. ‘Abandoned’ on the island, the happy couple can spend the afternoon exploring, relaxing under the sun, snorkelling the coral reef and of course, enjoying perfectly chilled champagne in an idyllic tropical setting. Once ready to come home, the couple use the mobile phone they’ve been given to call the resort to bring them back.
‘Sparkling Hour’ takes place on Thursday and Saturday nights on the terrace of Rangali Bar at Sunset where, from 7pm guests can enjoy an hour’s unlimited flow of champagnes and sparkling wines for US$99 per person as the house DJ plays chillout music.
In keeping with the resort’s ethos of delivering a world of style, the ‘Perfect Sundowner’ was created to enable guests to enjoy their favourite champagne at the perfect time of the day in the luxury of their own villa. Guests simply choose their preferred champagne from the list of over 130 bottles and it will be delivered to their villa just before the sunset along with a complimentary selection of canapés.
Food and beverage director Wolfgang Brandl explains: “Of course there’s never a wrong way to enjoy champagne, but relaxing in the privacy of your own private villa while taking in the beauty of a breathtaking Maldivian sunset with a glass of your favourite champagne in your hand has to be one of the most spectacular ways to do it.”
