Waldorf Astoria to open its first Maldives resort (and it’s oh-so luxe!)

In Travel News by The H4C Team

Glamorous Maldives getaways? They’re certainly not new. But this soon-to-be-opened property is about to take the fantasy to the next level. Synonymous with luxury, Waldorf Astoria is opening its first resort in the tropical destination this July. And it’s just as lavish as you’d expect…

Set to open July 1, the new Waldorf Astoria Maldives Ithaafushi will have all the indulgent trimmings. Stretching over three private islands, the resort will feature 122 villas with a reef, overwater or beach location. Unsurprisingly, the overwater options are sure to grab couples’ attentions, with opulent touches like infinity pools, dining gazebos and outdoor decks with swinging daybeds. Not too shabby.

Even before setting down their bags, guests will be treated to a luxury private yacht transfer from the airport – how’s that for getting things off to the right start? On land, there’ll be everything from an overwater spa, a cinema and a slew of fabulous dining options (11 in total!) to enjoy. Clink Champagne glasses in a treetop bamboo pod or feast on gourmet cuisine in a majestic cave – the choice is yours!

Consider yourselves adventure-seekers? Check out the Waldorf Astoria Maldives Ithaafushi’s PADI dive centre or take a refreshing dip in the 40-metre mirror pool. Or, unwind with a 24-carat gold facial at the onsite spa.
