Waldorf Astoria to open Maldivian resort with overwater spa

Hilton’s luxury brand, Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts, will soon welcome guests to the heart of the South Malé Atoll with the opening of Waldorf Astoria Maldives Ithaafushi. Set to debut on 1 July, the all-villa resort spans across three islands, with 122 villas, each equipped with a pool, as well as a spa featuring overwater or garden treatment villas.

The Waldorf Astoria Spa will offer an extensive menu of treatments and Asian-inspired therapies focusing on relaxation and rebalance, as well as bespoke holistic treatments and exercise programmes.

A total of ten treatment villas will include eight couples' treatment villas and two single treatment villas, of which four are overwater and six are nestled in the gardens.

The lifestyle spa and wellness refuge is complemented a Wellness Concierge service that delivers customised wellness solutions with a personalised approach, with treatments are focused on three main goals: Relaxing, Rebalancing and Results.

Treatments are from Carol Joy London and Elemental Herbology, as well as high-tech beauty treatments such as LPG Endermologie and the LED Facial Mask.

The Ocean Starlight ritual is held in an exclusive Spa Pavilion under the Maldivian stars where guests can relax to the sound of the gently lapping waves. The spa also offers family treatments to allow guests to bond with their children and pamper them with a junior spa experience.

The spa also features an outdoor yoga pavilion for private sessions and group wellness programmes.

Philip Kingsley hair products, London Town nail polish and Coola Organic Sunscreen are also on offer at the spa.

Other facilities at the resort include the beachfront, 40-meter Mirror Pool; the Ocean Pavilion, which will host a range of wellness activities; a fully-equipped fitness centre; and a combined water sport and PADI dive centre.

The Ithaafushi Private Island – accessible by yacht – features a two-bedroom overwater villa as well as a three-bedroom beach villa, and comes complete with a dedicated chef and personal concierge team, as well as its own spa, gym, five swimming pools, entertainment centre and beaches.

“As the fifth Waldorf Astoria to open in the region, Waldorf Astoria Maldives Ithaafushi represents a significant milestone in the brand’s continued growth in Asia Pacific following the successful opening of Waldorf Astoria Bangkok last year,” said Daniel Welk, vice president, Luxury and Lifestyle Group, Asia Pacific, Hilton. “We are extremely proud to bring the brand to a destination as synonymous with luxury as the Maldives, and we look forward to delivering unforgettable experiences that reflect Waldorf Astoria’s unique sense of place and iconic service standards.”
