Hilton today announced the opening of DoubleTree by Hilton Noumea Ilot Maitre Resort, a fully renovated 64-bungalow resort that offers a true island experience just a short boat ride from New Caledonia's capital, Noumea. The latest addition to the DoubleTree by Hilton portfolio, one of Hilton's 18 market-leading brands, DoubleTree by Hilton Noumea Ilot Maitre Resort is owned by GLP Hotels New Caledonia and operated by Hilton under a franchised agreement.

DoubleTree by Hilton Noumea Ilot Maitre Resort is located on an islet five kilometers from Noumea. Ilot Maitre forms part of the lagoon encircling New Caledonia, listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. The resort is surrounded by a 200-hectare natural reserve that is home to an abundance of marine life and flora and fauna, and enjoys a sub-tropical climate year round, caressed by the trade winds.

DoubleTree by Hilton Noumea Ilot Maitre Resort is an easy 30-minute boat ride away from the capital city Noumea, in the resort's private boat. It offers regular transfers between the islet and Noumea, offering guests the best of both worlds: a relaxing island getaway and the chance to visit the vibrant capital to enjoy its many restaurants and cafés, French designer shopping, and cultural excursions. Noumea is 46 kilometers from La Tontouta International Airport, which can be reached in approximately 3 hours from Sydney, 2.5 hours from Auckland, and 8 hours from Tokyo.

DoubleTree by Hilton Noumea Ilot Maitre Resort features 37 garden or beach bungalows nestled throughout the island, each 36 square meters with an additional 13 square metre private deck. All are tastefully furnished to provide a tranquil, contemporary ambiance, and are moments from both shores of the island.

The resort enjoys two beach villas that can accommodate up to 10 guests when combined, ideal for larger groups of friends or families, as well as 25 exclusive overwater bungalows - the only in New Caledonia. These bungalows are built over the lagoon and face west, to make the most of every sunset. Each bungalow is a spacious 53 square meters and enjoys a separate bedroom and lounge room, leading out onto a 14 square metre deck. Decks feature a daybed and private steps down into the lagoon below.

DoubleTree by Hilton Noumea Ilot Maitre Resort offers an exceptional dining experience in the L'Escapade Restaurant, which is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and features market fresh buffets of local seafood and produce, as well as an array of French delicacies. Guests are able to relax day and night at the Sunset Bar and order tapas plates, drinks and tropical cocktails. During an active day enjoying the beach, guests can recharge at La Boussole Beach Café, which serves light breakfast and lunch options.

All guests will receive the signature, warm DoubleTree Cookie at check-in, a hallmark of the DoubleTree brand's warm and hospitable service. Guests seeking exercise or relaxation have a variety of options including a 24-hour fitness center equipped with the latest fitness equipment, a water activity center offering a range of water sports, a massage center with optional beach massages, and an outdoor pool with swim-up bar.

Featuring a total of 56sqm meeting space, Le Colonnaire meeting room is located in the tropical gardens and offers delegates an inspirational view over the lagoon and an outdoor area for coffee breaks. A marquee is located alongside the meeting room, which can accommodate up to 150 people for cocktails or other social or professional gatherings.
