Hilton Worldwide has introduced Hilton Lifou Wadra Bay Resort, its second hotel in New Caledonia, with the signing of a franchise agreement with Société de Développement des îles Loyautés (SODIL).
The 50-room resort is due to open in 2019 and will be managed by GLP Hotels New Caledonia.
Lifou Island is one of the three Loyalty Islands located off the east coast of the mainland of New Caledonia. This will be the first hotel of this standard on the island which is largely undiscovered and features a combination of Melanesian culture, unique nature, and magnificent beaches. Lifou Island is accessible by air or by boat leaving from Noumea, the capital city of New Caledonia.
The resort will include 50 villas all located on or close to the beachfront and will boast an inland lagoon with local fish, rays and turtles following an agreement with the Noumea Aquarium. Two restaurants, a health club, spa, outdoor pool and event spaces complete the resort facilities.
