There is to be a Hilton Hotels and Resorts-branded hotel in Timor-Leste. Under a management agreement with The Lay Group, Hilton will manage Hilton Dili Palm Springs in the capital city of Dili, the country's main centre of economic activity.
The Hilton Palm Springs will offer convenience to corporate and government travellers with its location in the heart of Dili.
The hotel will offer 140 guest rooms of 40 square metres and 10 suites of 60 square metres. It will also feature event and meeting spaces, as well as an executive lounge and a signature restaurant, lobby bar, rooftop bar, fitness centre, spa and outdoor pool.
Construction of the 150-room hotel has commenced and is due for completion by late 2018.
Hilton says Timor-Leste is emerging as a popular leisure escape, known for its untouched beaches, pristine reefs, beautiful rugged landscapes and rich cultural history.
