To prepare for post pandemic travel demand, 10 Hilton properties across Southeast Asia are welcoming travellers with expanded, updated amenities, with a focus on the great outdoors.

Located across Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Philippines, and the Maldives, brands included in extensive facelift projects cover the Conrad, Hilton and Millennium Hilton brands.

Conrad Maldives Rangali Island — also the first international resort to open at the resort paradise — will unveil the extensive revamps on its overwater villas in 1Q 2022.

Over in Indonesia, Conrad Bali has expanded to now offer 298 rooms and suites, with redesign touches extended to the spa and lobby as well.
