The arrival of Waldorf Astoria in the Maldives sets a new standard of luxury in the playground for the rich and famous.
The Hilton brand is celebrating its 100th anniversary in a big way with the opening of Waldorf Astoria Maldives Ithaafushi. Nestled among white sands and crystal blue waters, the new resort is only 30 minutes away from Malé International Airport. True Waldorf Service starts from the moment guests step aboard Waldorf Astoria’s private yacht, which transports them to the resort from the airport.

The resort is also home to the uber-exclusive Ithaafushi Private Island. Accessible only by yacht, the 32,000sqm paradise features a four-bedroom residence, three-bedroom beach villa and two-bedroom overwater villa. The private island comes complete with a dedicated chef and personal concierge team, five swimming pools and pristine beaches, giving a sense of privacy masked in opulence and making it ideal for private gatherings and celebrations.
