Hilton Maldives Iru Fushi Resort Takes MICE to a New Level

Hilton Maldives Iru Fushi Resort & Spa is a resort that boasts of its powdery white beach and lush, tropical vegetation. The unspoilt island is secluded and accessible via a stunning scenic flight of 45 minutes.

Known for its creative ideas Hilton Maldives Iru Fushi Resort & Spa has taken on a new challenge by launching its new “barefoot” Meetings, Incentives, Conferences and Event program (MICE) away from the conventional and boring meeting room.

While Maldives, with its unlimited possibilities, has never been seen as typical MICE destination, General Manager of Hilton Maldives Iru Fushi Resort & Spa, Sebastien Kling said that the resort is not going to hold the events in a conventional meeting room.

“Traditionally, the Maldives is not seen as a typical MICE destination,” Kling said, “At Hilton Maldives Iru Fushi we intend to change that with our barefoot MICE programme.  We pride ourselves on being the specialists in creative and innovative meetings and we promise organisers that no event will take place in a dull, stuffy room.  Instead, all meeting activities can be done barefoot in various locations around the resort.”

According to the resort one such event has already successfully taken place in February. Moreover during May of this year the resort will be welcoming 238 guests for a four-night incentive event for a European financial company.

“We are seeing increased interest in bringing MICE business to the Maldives because it’s a truly spectacular location that can’t be found elsewhere.  Event organisers love the flexibility we offer in terms of individualisation and customisation of their event,” Kling said.  “Hilton Maldives Iru Fushi Resort & Spa is an extraordinary tropical resort with the space and flexibility to hold memorable meetings and events in an incredible environment.  We offer meeting rooms in the sand with ocean views in the heart of paradise”.

The possibilities offered by the resort include the exclusive use of a private island where their guests can enjoy their own Robinson Crusoe experience that includes beach barbecues, watersports, spa treatments on the beach, drinks reception in the ocean and of course outstanding creative menus, wonderful accommodation and dining options at the resort.

Hilton Maldives Iru Fushi also offers a private hire of various open-air restaurants as well as meetings on the beach held in marquees or open sided tents.  The resort has also said that it is even possible to set up cocktails and receptions with delegates’ “feet in the ocean”.  The resorts’ spa, considered one of the largest in the country, offers a treasure trove of relaxing possibilities, while the resort’s six restaurants ensure an abundance of dining options.

Those who feel that these options are not enticing enough can benefit from the Hilton HHonors® Event Bonus whereby they can earn Points & Miles® with meetings and conferences held at the resort.
