Mercure Maldives Kooddoo appoints Christophe Victor as Resort Manager

Mercure Maldives Kooddoo, an oasis of serenity nestled in the heart of the southern Gaafu Alifu Atoll in the Maldives, has announced a dynamic shift in leadership. Taking charge as the new Resort Manager, Christophe Victor brings a wealth of experience and an unparalleled passion for excellence to the all-inclusive, adults – only resort.

With an extensive background as the Cluster Executive Assistant Manager (EAM) for Sales & Marketing at both Mercure Maldives Kooddoo and Pullman Maldives Maamutaa for four years, Christophe’s journey within the Accor group is a testament to dedication, passion and growth. His journey continues in his new pivotal role as Resort Manager, where he envisions the resort as more than just a destination—it embodies his commitment to creating profoundly immersive and unforgettable experiences for all who pass through Mercure.

“Accor is an outstanding company that values the growth of their talents, and I am extremely grateful for the opportunities to do so, as well as for the support from our Cluster General Manager, John Bendtsen,” Christophe shares.

With over 24 years of experience in Sales and Marketing, Christophe’s transition to Resort Manager underscores his profound connection to the unique allure of the destination.

Rooted in the local essence, the boutique-style adults-only Mercure Maldives Kooddoo presents an all inclusive concept that invites guests to savor authentic Maldivian and international flavours and experiences. The resort’s generosity extends to complimentary excursions and discounted spa treatments, ensuring a comprehensive and immersive holiday.

Strategically situated on Kooddoo Island, Mercure offers convenient accessibility with a 50-minute domestic flight from Male International Airport, facilitating a seamless transition from the mainland to the island paradise. The absence of an additional speedboat journey provides direct access from the domestic terminal to the charming villa accommodations.

The resort’s privileged location near the tropics offers access to a vibrant marine ecosystem and warmer water temperatures, creating an idyllic setting for snorkeling and diving enthusiasts. Discover the captivating beauty of the reef, where encounters with turtles, dolphins, and a kaleidoscope of colourful fish species await. In the eloquent words of Christophe, “There is simply no other place like Mercure Maldives – the perfect combination of cozy luxury, ever-changing palettes of blues, the most amazing team, and a relaxed atmosphere.”

As Christophe embraces his new role, he offers valuable insights into managing multifaceted responsibilities: “Maintaining frequent communication and ensuring mutual updates are crucial for our team. The Operations Team at Mercure Maldives possesses seasoned expertise, provides unwavering support, and maintains an open-minded approach, contributing to a rewarding experience in guiding them.”

Beyond the captivating vistas and unparalleled luxury, Christophe finds solace in competitive stand-up paddling within the serene expanse of the lagoon. Despite his extensive global travels, his enduring attachment to Bordeaux underscores a sentiment that resonates throughout his work regardless of his current whereabouts.
