Hilton Continues Expansion in the Maldives

A new paradise in one of the most sought-after destinations

As one of the world’s fastest-growing hospitality companies, Hilton recently announced the signing of a management agreement with Amingiri Holdings Pvt Ltd, a hospitality-focused subsidiary of Maldivian construction and real estate development company Amin Construction Pvt Ltd to launch the 109 all-villa Hilton Maldives Amingiri. Hilton’s portfolio includes 18 world-class brands comprised of more than 6,600 properties and more than 1 million rooms in 119 countries and territories. At a time when savvy travelers are seeking destinations with more room to move around freely, this property has so much to offer in terms of open spaces, personalized dining and warm hospitality.

This will be the fourth resort in the Maldives for the Hilton brand when it opens late 2021, and ready to welcome guests to this unique getaway. Hilton Maldives Amingiri will mark the entry of Hilton’s flagship Hilton Hotels & Resorts brand into the Maldives as it joins Waldorf Astoria Maldives Ithaafushi, Conrad Maldives Rangali Island and SAii Lagoon Maldives, Curio Collection by Hilton.

“The Maldives remains one of the world’s most highly sought-after destinations and the signing of Hilton Maldives Amingiri reflects the excellent growth potential we see in the market,” said Guy Phillips, senior vice president, development, Asia Australasia, Hilton. “We are delighted to be embarking on this partnership with Amingiri Holdings Pvt Ltd to launch our Hilton Hotels & Resorts brand in the country. We are confident their experience in developing world-class resorts in the Maldives, combined with Hilton’s strong commercial engine, will place us at the top of mind for leisure travelers when it is safe to travel again.”

Hilton Maldives Amingiri is ideally located on Amingiri Island in the Male Atoll with direct access from the Maldives’ Velana International Airport via a 15-minute speedboat ride. The resort will feature 109 well-spaced beach and water villas, each with a private pool, including an exclusive six-bedroom villa ideal for travelers looking to reunite and create new travel memories with loved ones in an iconic destination after more than a year of connecting remotely. A pool, spa, fitness center and salon will also be available for guests when they want to refresh and renew in style.

As with many of the resorts throughout the Maldives, dining while on-property is an event, and it looks to be very much the case for guests at Hilton Maldives Amingiri. Guests will have their pick of a wide range of dining options from the resort’s six restaurants and bars designed to fit anyone and everyone’s mood and palate. Though many of the details are still tightly held secrets, we were able to learn about three of these distinct options.

Habitat is the resort’s all-day dining restaurant that celebrates international cuisines inspired by cultures ranging from the Mediterranean to South East Asia. The day begins with a delectable breakfast spread in the morning before evolving into an à la carte dining venue for lunch and then dinner where guests can enjoy themed nights offering indulgent flavors from around the world.

Since many of the resorts in the Maldives are geared more toward adults, Hilton Maldives Amingiri also makes sure to cater to their younger guests. Re-Fuel is a teens-only zone where junior guests can gain access through a secret speakeasy style entrance in the kids’ club. The rooftop deck is a tranquil oasis where teens can relax and unwind. A dedicated bar will serve a curated menu specifically catering to the needs and wants of the teenage traveler.
