Hilton’s Flagship Brand Makes Highly Anticipated Debut in the Maldives


Leading global hospitality company Hilton (NYSE: HLT) today  announced the opening of Hilton Maldives Amingiri Resort & Spa, marking the expansion of  Hilton’s award-winning flagship brand into the Maldives. The all-villa resort features an array of  thoughtful amenities which are new to the archipelago, setting a new benchmark in hospitality that  will captivate the next generation of travelers. Hilton Maldives Amingiri is the fourth resort under  the company’s portfolio of brands in the country, complementing Waldorf Astoria Maldives  Ithaafushi, Conrad Maldives Rangali Island and SAii Lagoon Maldives, Curio Collection by Hilton,  bolstering Hilton’s ability to take care of different travelers and their unique needs in one of the 

world’s most sought-after destinations. The hotel is owned by Amingiri Holdings Pvt Ltd and  managed by Hilton. 

“The Maldives is one of the most desired vacation destinations for travelers around the world – seeing a continued pace of bookings even throughout the last two years when it was the first  country to open its borders to international travelers during the pandemic. The expansion of our  flagship brand here underscores our commitment to bringing our world-class brands to key  locations, and we are confident Hilton Maldives Amingiri Resort & Spa will build on our legacy of  delivering an exceptional stay to delight and inspire our guests,” said Alan Watts, president, Asia  Pacific, Hilton. 

“Today’s milestone launch is a celebration of our shared vision with Hilton to deliver the most  exceptional levels of service and hospitality in the Maldives. 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,”  said Daniel Welk, Amingiri Holdings Pvt Ltd. 

Nestled in Amingiri Island in the North Malé Atoll, Hilton Maldives Amingiri is directly accessible  from Velana International Airport via a scenic 20-minute premium speedboat ride. The resort  features 109 expansive beach and overwater villas, each offering a private pool and enticing views  of the surrounding turquoise lagoon. Embodying a harmony of Maldivian accents and  contemporary touches, the villas invite an abundance of natural light through its floor-to-ceiling  windows, enhancing a refreshing colour palette that mirrors the warm hues of the sea and sky.  Designed to immerse guests in nature’s wonders, the overwater pool villas are outfitted with stairs  to lead directly to the island’s lagoon, and a hammock by the pool to enjoy the melody of waves;  while beach villas feature direct access to sparkling white sand, a deck swing and a gazebo on the  shore. All villas boast generously proportioned bathrooms with ocean-facing bathtubs, as well as  indoor and outdoor rain showers that create a sense of relaxation.

A key highlight of Hilton Maldives Amingiri is the six-bedroom Amingiri Residence, the ideal escape  for larger groups of travelers looking for privacy in its truest sense. Set apart on a landscaped cove,  the residence will welcome guests with its own arrival pier and a dedicated sundeck with  uninterrupted 360-degree views of the Maldivian horizon when it debuts in November 2022.  

“Hilton Maldives Amingiri represents what we continually strive for in our brand portfolio – innovative offerings and exceptional stays complemented by our signature hospitality. Introducing  several new concepts to the Maldives, such as a rooftop lounge exclusive to teenage guests, a  cocktail lab and the six-bedroom residence, Hilton Maldives Amingiri is set to capture guests of all  ages looking to reconnect during their stay with their selves, nature or close ones,” said Alexandra  Jaritz, senior vice president, Brand Management, Asia Pacific, Hilton.  

Home to six distinctive dining concepts, Hilton Maldives Amingiri will take guests on a culinary  sojourn. From Origin, a dining experience that celebrates sustainable seafood sourcing, ageing  techniques and a food-upcycling approach, to all-day dining restaurant Habitat, to rustic beach  restaurant Beach Shack with its feet-in-the-sand dining experience, the resort’s dining offerings  are thoughtfully curated to satisfy every palate.  

Celebrating tea cultures from all over the world, modern-day tea house Sip Tea Lounge’s  extensive tea collection allows guests to refresh and relax over rare flavors and perennial favorites.  Champagne and gin are on showcase at the adults-only overwater bar Eden, while poolside bar  Aura features a cocktail lab dedicated to the art of mixology. 

A slew of inspiring experiences await seasoned holidaymakers and junior explorers: Krakengiri  Kids’ Club features an outdoor children’s play pool and mini splash park, while rooftop bar Re:Fuel  offers teenage guests a tranquil retreat and a hidden entrance designed exclusively for them.  Purposefully designed as a sanctuary, Amingiri Spa offers an extensive menu of rejuvenating  treatments and purifying hammam rituals that bring an enlightened sense of wellbeing.
