Not the Bali Hilton

Were you one of the potentially millions of Internet users who received a PowerPoint presentation showing a series of slides of a luxurious thatched resort suspended over an azure sea?

The pictures were captivating - enticing readers to fantasize about a romantic, private holiday before the final slide admonishing the dreamer to "go back to work." Just in case you didn't receive the subject e-mail or, for those in desperate need of a holiday fantasy, we're including a link at the end of this article to permit you to view the now internationally famous slide show.

A subject line on the last slide of the PowerPoint attachment mentioned the Bali Hilton, causing a dramatic surge in visits to, the Bali Hilton's website and various other Bali travel websites.

Those visiting the [Bali Hilton] at in search of that idyllic hut suspended over the ocean saw wonderful pictures of that beautiful 5-star Bali resort, but were unable to find pictures of the dream accommodation pictured in the original e-mail that originally sent them on their search.

As a result of the e-mail "teaser" shared between bored office workers around the world, the Bali Hilton suddenly became the most viewed page on our website! What's more, because of's unique ability to allow readers to instantly request more information on each of the nearly 300 properties we feature, our reservation's department was flooded with messages from people pleading with us to help them find this mysterious dream getaway.

Mystery Solved

Our curiosity was aroused: the luxurious ocean hut didn't resemble any hotel we knew in Bali, and we pride ourselves on our knowledge of Bali resorts and hotels and being able to find the perfect accommodation to fulfill our client's expectations. Accordingly, our e-commerce department commenced its own search, determined to find out the source of the pictures that had seemingly captured the imagination of a world eager to start traveling again.

At last, our search bore fruit. Apparently the mystery ocean huts are part of the Hilton Maldives, located on Rangali Island in that country's South Ari Atoll.

Rates start at US$ 850 a night for one of their 8 Deluxe Water Villas. The 2 Sunset Water Villas from the presentation are even more expensive. More information at the [Hilton Maldives] website.
