Maldives: Beach House Maldives to join Waldorf Astoria Collection

The re-branding ceremony will be over-seen by a VIP guest who will officially open the resort with the unveiling of a specially commissioned Maldivian sculpture in the new ART Gallery, which showcases local art and culture to guests. As the sun sets the festivities will continue with a lavish beach party and DJ set followed by a Gala dinner on the beach, incorporating the best of Maldivian flavours with The Waldorf Astoria Collection touch to the backdrop of a live local band.
Hilton’s management team have been in situ at the resort since 1 July 2009 and have overseen a number of key developments, which sees the resort re-brand from The Beach House at Manafaru to become the first Waldorf Astoria Collection property in Asia Pacific.
New upgraded F&B concepts across all four restaurants and three bars have been designed to reflect the local heritage complemented by global influences and using local organic ingredients wherever possible. From Maldivian dishes with The Waldorf Astoria Collection flair at over-water restaurant Saffron, to Tapas and Sangria with a Maldivian edge at the Mediterranean themed Salt Water and martinis and cocktails inspired by The Waldorf Astoria Collection properties around the world at Infiniti; each dining experience offers a local twist.
A new Art Gallery showcasing local art together with a café serving traditional Maldivian High Tea has also just been introduced. And from 1 March, 30 Degrees will be the smallest and most exclusive restaurant in the Maldives offering private dining in a glass-floored over-water pavilion.
New wine experiences created by renowned Master of Wine Ron Georgiou will include the introduction of a new wine tasting journey at the under-ground Cellar restaurant. And for those looking to truly experience a desert island getaway, neighbouring private island Medafushi will offer a wealth of experiences including a four-poster bed on the beach complete with lanterns, chill out tunes and food.
Upgraded Villa and restaurant interiors and new Spa programmes from UK based Aromatherapy Associates, Ayurvedic philosophies and traditional Maldivian treatments are also in place, with developments to the Kids Club, new designer boutiques and a new Chill beach service under-way.
The opportunity to sample an insight into the history of the Maldives will be on offer with excursions to the nearby island of Utheem home to a Sultan’s Palace. 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.
The resort is offering opening savings of 56% for travel before 23 March 2010 and between 15 April and 30 September 2010. One-night in a Water Villa costs from $560 per night including breakfast and based on two sharing. For reservations
