Hospitality company Hilton has opened its fourth location in Maldives, further strengthening its footprint in the archipelagic country.
The new location, Hilton Maldives Amingiri Resort & Spa, also marks the debut of the Hilton’s flagship brand in the Maldives.
The all-villa resort is located in Amingiri Island in the North Malé Atoll. It is owned by Amingiri Holdings and managed by Hilton. It can be accessed via a 20-minute speedboat ride from Velana International Airport.
Hilton Maldives Amingiri has 109 beach and overwater villas, each offering a private pool and a view of the lagoon.
The villas also feature floor-to-ceiling windows, ocean-facing bathtubs, indoor and outdoor rain showers among other facilities.
The overwater pool villas lead directly to the island’s lagoon, while the beach villas give direct access to a deck swing and a gazebo on the shore.
Hilton Asia Pacific president Alan Watts said: “The expansion of our flagship brand here underscores our commitment to bringing our world-class brands to key locations.
“We are confident Hilton Maldives Amingiri Resort & Spa will build on our legacy of delivering an exceptional stay to delight and inspire our guests.”
Amingiri Holdings’ Daniel Welk said, “At Amingiri Holdings, we are committed to continuously contribute to the Maldivian economy and further strengthen its tourism industry, and Hilton Maldives Amingiri Resort & Spa will enable us to continue with this mission.”
To cater to larger groups of travellers, the Hilton Maldives Amingiri is set to offer a six-bedroom Amingiri Residence. The residence, set apart on a landscaped cove, is scheduled to open in November this year.
In addition, the hotel includes a spa and serves a wide range of dining options at all-day dining restaurant and beach restaurant.
Other features of Hilton Maldives Amingiri include Sip Tea Lounge with extensive tea collection, an overwater bar and a poolside bar.
Its Krakengiri Kids’ Club offers a dedicated outdoor play pool and mini splash park for children.
Hilton’s other locations in Maldives are Waldorf Astoria Maldives Ithaafushi; Conrad Maldives Rangali Island and SAii Lagoon Maldives, Curio Collection by Hilton.
In May, Hilton opened its ninth hotel in Peru- Hilton Garden Inn Lima Miraflores.
