Hilton Worldwide expands Australasian portfolio

Hilton Worldwide signed a franchise agreement with GLP Hotels for a 154-key conversion project to be known as Hilton Noumea La Promenade Residence. The property, currently the La Promenade, opened in 2008 and will undergo a refurbishment before officially opening under the Hilton Hotels & Resorts banner in mid-2013. This will be the first Hilton Hotels & Resorts branded-property in Noumea, New Caledonia and is located on the Anse Vata Beach.

Hilton Noumea La Promenade Residence joins three existing properties in the South Pacific - Fiji Beach Resort & Spa managed by Hilton, Hilton Bora Bora Nui Resort & Spa and Hilton Moorea Lagoon Resort & Spa in French Polynesia.

The three-tower Hilton Noumea La Promenade Residence is located on Anse Vata Beach in the center of the main tourism and accommodation district in Noumea and has uninterrupted water views from every room. The hotel will feature 154-keys, including 21 junior suites, 68 deluxe suites, 20 executive suites and 45 royal suites as well as a restaurant, bar, health club and outdoor swimming pool.

Noumea, the capital of New Caledonia, is located in the world's largest lagoon, which is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage location. The lagoon contains an abundance of marine creatures and coral reefs, and offers a variety of activities such as diving, snorkeling, sailing, wind surfing, kite surfing and fishing. New Caledonia is a two-hour flight from Sydney and Brisbane and three hours from New Zealand.

Hilton Worldwide currently has a portfolio of 15 hotels in Australasia, including eight properties in Australia, four in New Zealand and three in the South Pacific.
