HILTON'S ICONIC luxury hotel brand, Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts today announces the highly anticipated opening of Waldorf Astoria Maldives Ithaafushi, setting a new standard of luxury in the Maldives. The resort features three interconnected islands, a short 30-minute yacht journey away from Malé International Airport. 

“The Asia Pacific is enjoying a golden age of travel, and the launch of Waldorf Astoria Maldives Ithaafushi is part of the growing momentum of Hilton’s Luxury and Lifestyle portfolio throughout the region,” said Alan Watts, President, Asia Pacific, Hilton. “This is especially significant as the Maldives becomes an increasingly popular destination for global travellers. As the first international hotel brand to have opened in the Maldives over 21 years ago, it is especially fitting that this opening takes place as we celebrate Hilton’s 100th-year milestone as a leader in global hospitality,” he further added.  

The resort features various luxurious villas, the exclusive Ithaafushi Private Island which is only accessible by boat. The private island comes complete with a dedicated chef and personal concierge team and many more facilities in which guests can indulge. 

“The Waldorf Astoria brand has a long-standing legacy of setting the standard for luxury and for providing personalized, graceful service. The debut with our flagship brand in the Maldives is no exception, and we will continue to redefine what it means to provide luxury escapes and deliver memorable experiences for the discerning traveller,” said Martin Rinck, Executive Vice President and Global Head, Luxury & Lifestyle Brands, Hilton.
