The Beach House joins legendary luxury collection for upscale Maldives holidays
The luxury Beach House resort in Maldives has just become more luxurious as it officially joined the prestigious Hilton collection of Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts, an exclusive brand including some of the most lavish, upscale hotels in the world
Presenting the world with award-winning luxury Maldives holidays, The Beach House has recently joined the prestigious list of exclusive Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts. With effect from 1st March 2010, the resort has been renamed, ‘The Beach House Maldives, The Waldorf Astoria Collection’. To celebrate this event, guests at the resort were invited to join the inauguration ceremony, and became a part of a new chapter in this exclusive resort’s long history of providing exceptional luxury holidays.
To mark the occasion a specially commissioned Maldivian sculpture was unveiled in the resort’s newly created Art Gallery, which showcases local art and culture to guests as well as serving traditional Maldivian High Afternoon Tea, giving guests a better insight into the island’s costumes and values during their Maldives holidays. As the sun set, the festivities continued with a party and DJ set, followed by a Gala dinner on the beach and live band.
“An independently branded hotel since 2007, The Beach House Maldives has built a solid reputation for world-class luxury and quality that epitomises the Waldorf Astoria name,” said Martin Rinck, President of Hilton Worldwide – Asia Pacific. “The Maldives remains one of the most sought-after luxury leisure destinations in the world, and we are delighted to be able to offer our guests the unique experience of Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts on the beautifully private and breathtaking island of Manafaru”.
Hilton Worldwide’s management team has been on-site at the resort since 1st July 2009 to oversee a number of key developments as part of the US$58 million renovation project, which has led to the resort becoming the first Waldorf Astoria property in the Asia Pacific, and of course the only on to be enjoyed during holidays in Maldives.
“Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts features a collection of landmark properties around the world, each ranging in elements of modern grandeur to timeless classics, and all renowned for their individuality, refinement and unparalleled service. The Beach House is no exception and we are delighted to extend our portfolio to Asia Pacific.”- added John Vanderslice, Global Head of Luxury & Lifestyle of Hilton Worldwide.
Some of the tuning enhancements to make the resort even more luxurious to discerning diners looking for premium gourmet options during their Maldives holidays included the redesigning of the resort’s 4 restaurants and 3 bars to incorporate local heritage and ingredients with global influences. With the over-water fine-dining restaurant Saffron, a Tapas and Sangria bar with a Maldivian edge at the Mediterranean-themed Salt Water and martinis and cocktails inspired by Waldorf Astoria properties around the world at Infiniti; each dining experience offers a local twist.
From 1st March, 30 Degrees is the smallest and most exclusive restaurant in the Maldives, offering private dining in a glass-floored over-water pavilion.
Wine lovers will simply adore the new wine experiences created by renowned Master of Wine, Ron Georgiou, which include the introduction of a wine-tasting journey at the underground Cellar restaurant. And for those looking to truly experience a desert island getaway, neighbouring private island Medafushi offers a wealth of experiences including a four-poster bed on the beach complete with lanterns, chill-out tunes and food.
And those who take Maldives holidays to get a taste of country’s history will enjoy the opportunity to explore with new excursions to the nearby island of Utheem, home to a Sultan’s Palace. On a last note transfers to the resort have also been improved with a direct 75-minute seaplane transfer offered as an alternative to a domestic flight and boat transfer.
