Three resorts in the Maldives have officially opened their shared lounge at the seaplane terminal near Male International Airport.Shared between the Hilton, Conrad and Waldorf Astoria resorts, the private lounge offers a welcome respite after a long flight and includes a spa, a children’s play room, a balcony with sun loungers, freshly prepared hot and cold dishes and live cooking by the resident chef. Located on the second floor of the Trans Maldivian Airlines seaplane terminal, guests can watch seaplanes taking off and landing in the lagoon in front of the lounge. Guests travelling to Beach House Maldives, a Waldorf Astoria Resort and Conrad Maldives Rangali Island have access to a shared lounge while guests of Hilton Maldives Iru Fushi have their own, separate, area. All guests arriving in the Maldives will transfer to the three resorts by seaplane.
