Hilton’s dream resort

Located in the South Ari Atoll 90 kilometres southwest of the Maldives’ capital city, Male, the Maldives Hilton Resort is situated in one of the best dive spots in the world. It is further enhanced by two uninhabited islands which give visitors a unique opportunity to discover the unspoiled beauty of the Maldives. With a deep blue lagoon surrounded by a wildly colourful reef, the resort is a tropical paradise.

A total of 100 air conditioned sea-front beach villas, stretching along a pristine white coral beach, encircle the main Rangali Finolhu island. Their rustic interior and architectural design blends beautifully with the natural environment.

Water villas dotting Ramgali islandThe adjoining Rangali Island is linked by a wood and steel bridge to the main island and it is here that guests, who arrive by sea plane, are met. Rangali Island features 30 water villas which are built on stilts over the clear blue waters of the Indian Ocean.

Completely self contained and air-conditioned, the fully timbered interiors evoke the best of the tropics.

Fifty metres out in the ocean, and built over a reef where fish and coral can clearly be seen, is The Sunset Grill and Bar which offers fish and meat specialities. Its unique location offers stunning views of the sunset as well as the moonlit waters of the lagoon. The sand floored Rangali Bar completes the array of restaurants and bars. Regular dinners such as the ‘Bode Beru’, Maldivian Night on the Beach and the pool-side BBB ensure that guests can enjoy a variety of cuisine during their stay. Alternatively, guests may choose to dine in the privacy of their villa.

A fully-equipped Health and Beauty Spa,designed to let the mind and body unwind offers a range of beauty treatments and open-air massages. Other recreational activities include excursions to other islands, snorkelling around the reefs on a safari dhonie (the local boat), or cruising aboard the Goma luxury yacht.
