Hilton has signed a deal for a new property in the Maldives which is expected to open in 2021, which means that hopefully it will open next year.
The Hilton Maldives Amingiri will be just a 15 minute speedboat ride rom the Male airport, located on ‘Amingiri Island’ within the Male Atoll, and feature 109 villas each with a private pool.
The property’s name isn’t meant to sound like Amangiri, confuse customers, and violate Aman Resorts’ property rights. Instead it’s named eponymously for Amingiri Holdings, a subsidiary of Amin Construction, which owns the hotel that hilton will manage.
Hilton Maldives Amingiri will feature 6 restaurants and bars, including an all day dining facility featuring Mediterranean and Southeast Asian cuisine where breakfast will be served and where they will host theme nights, a champagne and gin bar with sunset views, and a speakeasy for teens,
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 traveller.
Hilton already has a Conrad, Waldorf, and Curio Collection property in the Maldives. This new property then will be the lowest-end by brand standards of the resorts, but also the newest, and likely more geared towards families considering the teen facility.
We don’t yet know what award
category pricing will look like, or what redemption availability will be – Hilton’s other properties in the Maldives can be tough gets and the Waldorf plays games with its award inventory (despite Hilton Honors protestations to the contrary).
