Hilton dives into the Maldives with its first Curio Collection hotel.

The SAii Lagoon Maldives is the latest addition to the carefully curated selection of hotels belonging to Hilton’s Curio Collection.

We take a look inside this stunning property which focuses on sustainable practices in one of the most enviable locations on earth.

Curio Collection hits the Maldives

The Maldives is one of the most exotic and desirable destinations on the planet, and guests planning on visiting just got another reason to go; the opening of a new property under the banner of Hilton’s Curio Collection.

The Curio Collection boasts a roster of impeccably appointed luxury properties, each with their own unique identity and character, and the SAii Lagoon Maldives fits this bill.

The resort enjoys a secluded location within the Emboodhoo Lagoon and is described as a “pocket of heaven”.

It will be the Curio Collection’s first property in the Maldives, but its fifth in the Asia Pacific market and Hilton’s third property in this tropical archipelago.

Alan Watts, president, Asia Pacific, Hilton, said, “For over 20 years, through the many firsts that Hilton has introduced in the Maldives, we have been sparking travellers’ imagination of waking up right above the Indian Ocean, or dining and even sleeping beneath the crystal-blue sea.”

“In addition to putting the Maldives on the global map, we have brought meaningful opportunities for employment and we continue to make positive contributions to the livelihood and well-being of local communities,” Mr Watts explained.

Luxury, convenience and sustainability

The SAii Lagoon Maldives resort is conveniently located just a 15-minute boat ride away from Malé International Airport, and upon arrival, guests will dock at the resort’s very own marina from where they make their way to one of the 198 rooms or villas.

The property is a veritable oasis, with the private overwater villas boasting panoramic views over the ocean.

All guest rooms and villas have been decorated in an eclectic style which uses natural materials such as wood and wicker and employs a colour palette which complements this incredible location’s maritime essence.
