Hilton Maldives/Iru Fushi Resort & Spa opened by President of the Maldives

The Hilton Maldives/Iru Fushi Resort & Spa officially launched  this week  in a ceremony hosted by the President of the Maldives Mohamed Nasheed. And to celebrate the resort team created a human Hilton logo on the pristine white sands of the island’s beach. The stunning 52 acre private island resort joins the award-winning sister resort Conrad Maldives Rangali Island as part of Hilton’s ongoing expansion in the Maldives, which will also see The Beach House join the Waldorf Astoria Collection on 1 November and The Doubletree by Hilton Malé open in the capital in 2011. Joining senior Hilton representatives, owners Sun Travels and Tours Pvt. Ltd and island visitors, the President was the guest of honour at a day of celebrations in the resort. Situated in the idyllic Noonu Atoll, the re-branding will offer guests a wealth of new service enhancements as well as a new Spa programme, revamped dining experiences and additional leisure activities.

  1. Years ago one of the first big tenders I did for Africon Engineering International was a Joint Venture with Hilton Hotels in Durban and the International Convention Centre.

    I realised then that the Hilton brand delivered all the luxury and great service that they promised. I’ve been to the Hiltons here in South Africa and they’ve never disappointed me.

    Now to have a great Hotel in a paradise setting…. in the Maldives….with a spa… sounds like heaven to me…
