Radisson Blu Resort Maldives Celebrates One Year Anniversary

The stylish and elegant hotel brand, Radisson Blu’s first resort in the Maldives rejoices one year since its opening in South Ari Atoll on 1 August. This special milestone was marked with a week-long celebration for guests and staff.

Over the past twelve months, Radisson Blu Resort Maldives has welcomed over 6,000 guests with 500 children, numerous repeat stays and long staying guests, including a three months extended stay. Over 50,000 meals and drinks were served in the seven distinguished restaurants and bars at the resort.

Along with several accolades such as the 2020 International Property Awards and 2021 Luxury Lifestyle Awards, Radisson Blu Maldives also took many initiatives for the community and environment. The resort features a Water Bottling Plant to reduce the plastic bottle usage and has concluded its first internship program for young and aspiring local and international talents. The resort has been actively participating in familiarization trips and sales trips conducted in India, Russia and the Middle East, which returned positive results.

Since its opening, the island retreat actively worked to enhance its offerings and benefits for guests.  Extensive water sports activities and excursions are offered on and around the island. Guests are able to enjoy the rich marine life of South Ari Atoll by SCUBA diving, swimming with manta rays, deep sea fishing, and the signature Whale Shark watching.

The anniversary celebrations included a sunset party with special delicacies, cultural Boduberu performance, lucky draw prizes, gifts and a cheerful cake cutting ceremony. A team party was held a couple of days later in the newly built island village garden where the management presented special appreciation gifts to staff members who have given exemplary services.

The General Manager, Gavin Sanders, said “During the unprecedented time, the team remained strong and steadfastly serve the guests who have traveled far from their homes to Maldives. And as just like the famous quote ‘Fortune favors the bold’, the resort looks forward to its promising second year and is prepared to welcome guests in from all parts of the world when travel tales off again.”
