Hotel overview

The new five-star resort of the Waldorf Astoria hotel chain located on the three islands of the South Malé Atoll was opened in the summer of 2019. It’s a real reserve of the Maldivian nature – turquoise waters and white sands framing the green tropics. The hotel has 122 modern beach and water villas of various categories, including individual luxury villas on a private island. You will be pleasantly surprised by the highly developed infrastructure of the tropical resort – 11 gourmet restaurants, a modern Spa, a fully equipped gym and all the conditions for water sports. The resort also has a dive centre, a water park, a tennis court, a wedding pavilion and a boutique. With Waldorf Astoria Maldives Ithaafushi, you will enjoy a luxurious vacation at the highest level.
