As one of the most expensive and highly coveted properties in Hilton’s portfolio, it’s obvious why finding award space at the Waldorf Astoria Maldives Ithaafushi is almost impossible. However, we’ve spotted a last-minute dump of award rooms, so if you have the points and time — book now!

Book the Waldorf Astoria Maldives Ithaafushi With Points

We found stays of up to 13 nights at the Waldorf Astoria Maldives Ithaafushi, which is absolutely unheard of. Most of May and June are available.

Act fast because these types of awards tend to book up quickly.

Hilton has a nifty award calendar search that shows the nightly price throughout the month. Standard pricing for the Waldorf Astoria Maldives is 150,000 Hilton Honors points per night.

As one of Hilton’s most expensive properties, this is a great way to use the Hilton free night certificates you can earn from select Hilton co-branded credit cards.

Hot Tip:

Complete your points and miles vacation by flying to the Maldives with your rewards, too!

Hilton Honors elite members are also granted the ability to score the fifth night free on award bookings. This means a 5-night stay at the Waldorf Astoria Maldives would cost just 600,000 points.

While this is costly, it’s definitely a great use of your points since room rates regularly run upward of $2,000 per night. For example, a 5-night stay in a King Reef Villa (the base room) in April will cost you $14,197.32, including taxes:

Redeeming 600,000 points for this stay nets you a value of 2.37 cents per point. That’s incredible, especially considering that we value Hilton points at 0.5 cents each.

Final Thoughts

The Waldorf Astoria Maldives Ithaafushi is one of the absolute best properties at which you can redeem points. Sure, it’s expensive, but the base room includes an overwater villa and your own private pool. We’ve found award space in huge chunks, so if you can make this work, book it!
