Hilton’s top luxury brand Waldorf Astoria returns to the Maldives with an exceptional new property opening in mid-2019.
Waldorf Astoria Maldives Ithaafushi Resort will be spread across three islands in the South Male Atoll, a 30-minute yacht journey from the international airport.
Each of the resort’s 122 villas will have spectacular views of the Indian Ocean and features like infinity pools, in-water lounges, dining gazebos and swinging daybeds.
There will be 10 dining options at the resort, including an exclusive treetop restaurant, a Middle Eastern restaurant styled like an Arabian village, and a spa restaurant serving fresh healthy cuisine. Guests can also make use of the private sandbank to host their own private party or romantic escape.
The property has just named its new general manager, Etienne Dalançon. A 20-year veteran of the hospitality industry, Etienne joined the Hilton team in 2018. “I am incredibly excited about the opportunity to be a part of such an iconic brand,” said Etienne. “Waldorf Astoria has redefined hospitality for the modern day traveller in landmark locations all around the world, and I am thrilled to be able to play a part in driving this through the forthcoming opening of Waldorf Astoria Maldives Ithaafushi.”
