The Beach House, located at the northern tip of the Maldives, is to become the first Waldorf Astoria Collection property in Asia Pacific. The Beach House is scheduled to join the luxury collection on 1 November, 2009.

Owned by the Maldivian company, Sun Hotels & Resorts Pvt. Ltd, The Beach House has been in operation as a luxurious and private resort for the past year, during which time it has won several accolades, including being featured on the Condé Nast Traveler Hot List, as well as named one of the World’s Best New Hotels by the Daily Telegraph UK.

 The Beach House will join other world-renowned hotels and resorts in The Waldorf Astoria Collection, such as the Trianon Palace Versailles in France, the Rome Cavalieri in Italy, the Qasr Al Sharq in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia and the Arizona Biltmore Resort & Spa in the United States.

Martin Rinck, President – Asia Pacific, Hilton Hotels Corporation, said, “The Maldives is well-known as one of the most desirable archipelagoes in the world and the success of our Conrad Maldives Rangali Island is testament to both the allure of this location and the uniqueness of the resort. In addition to welcoming The Beach House to the Waldorf Astoria Collection, we are delighted to have also signed an agreement with Sun Hotels & Resorts to manage a Hilton property in the Maldives, which will already open in July this year.”

The Beach House, The Waldorf Astoria Collection, is located on the pristine, lagoon-ringed Haa Alifu Atoll which is fringed by powder-white beaches and complemented with an unspoilt jungle-filled interior. The 35-acre resort comprises 83 Maldivian-style villas, three restaurants, four bars and a luxurious spa. Each villa comes complete with a private pool and butler.

Guests can choose to indulge in a romantic over-water Asian fusion meal at Saffron, enjoy succulent seafood and steaks from the central open kitchen at Medium Rare or dine at Four Corners on cuisine from around the world. In addition, there are options aplenty to watch the famous Maldivian sunsets from the resort’s spectacular bars.

Shui, a spa nestled among virgin forest and streams, offers traditional health and wellness treatments.

Hilton is developing Waldorf Astoria Collection hotels in key cities around the world and over the next few years and expects to launch The Dakota Mountain Lodge, Park City, Utah, The Waldorf Astoria Collection (Spring 2009), Boca Raton Resort & Club, Boca Raton, Florida, The Waldorf Astoria Collection (Spring 2009), The Roosevelt, New Orleans, Louisiana, The Waldorf Astoria Collection (June 2009) and The Palace Jerusalem, Jerusalem, Israel, The Waldorf Astoria Collection (December 2010).
