International Housekeepers Week 2023: Celebrating the hard work of unsung heroes

International Housekeepers Week is celebrated every year from September 10-16 to recognize the hard work and dedication of housekeepers around the world. In the Maldives, where tourism is the main economic driver, housekeepers play a vital role in ensuring the cleanliness and comfort of guests at the country’s many resorts.

Housekeepers are responsible for cleaning and maintaining guest rooms, public areas, and other facilities. They also provide laundry services, room service, and other amenities. In addition to their physical labor, housekeepers also play an important role in creating a welcoming and relaxing atmosphere for guests.

The Maldives tourism industry is grateful for the hard work and dedication of its housekeepers. During International Housekeepers Week, resorts across the Maldives are organizing a variety of events to celebrate the contributions of their housekeeping teams. These events include:

  • Award ceremonies to recognize outstanding housekeepers
  • Team-building activities
  • Food and beverage promotions
  • Educational workshops on health and safety


International Housekeepers Week is a time to thank housekeepers for their hard work and dedication. It is also a time to reflect on the importance of cleanliness and hygiene in the hospitality industry. Maldives resorts are committed to providing guests with a clean and safe environment, and housekeepers play a vital role in achieving this goal.
