Hilton has entered into a franchise agreement with Singha Estate to open a new boutique resort in the Maldives, to be managed by S Hotels & Resorts, a subsidiary of Singha Estate.
Scheduled to open by the end of 2018, the new resort will join the Curio Collection by Hilton portfolio of nearly 50 upper upscale independent hotels around the world.
The new Curio Collection property forms part of CROSSROADS project, the first-ever integrated leisure and entertainment resort destination currently under development in Emboodhoo Lagoon, Maldives.
The new resort will have 198 spacious guest rooms, beach villas and overwater villas as well as facilities such as a fitness center and swimming pool.
In addition to duty-free shops and multiple restaurants, guests will also enjoy convenient access to a beach club, watersports, a dive center, a cultural center and a kids club - all located within CROSSROADS.
CROSSROADS spans nine islands in the Emboodhoo Lagoon and will have a plethora of dining, retail, entertainment, recreational and leisure-lifestyle offerings including a 50-berth marina.
Set exclusively on one of the islands within the integrated destination, the resort is about 15 minutes away by speedboat to the Velana International Airport in the capital city of Male.
The Curio Collection Maldives resort joins close to 80 Hilton hotels open and under development across gateway cities and popular destinations across the South East Asia.
