It goes without saying that our resorts are wonderful places to spend holidays, but they are also fine places to live and work. I have been at Hurawalhi and Kudadoo for 5 ½ of my 9 years in the Maldives and it is now time that I return home to New Zealand. I am very proud of my team and all that they have accomplished with both resorts renowned as sought-after destinations in the Maldives.

I am sure you will all agree, our team’s dedication to guest experience is unmatched and is the reason why many of you return to our islands year after year. Whilst I will miss diving with our guests on the beautiful surrounding reefs and of course the amazing cuisine of Hurawalhi and Kudadoo, I will miss most of all the people – both my team members and our wonderful guests, many of whom have become like family.

I leave in confidence that our well-trained team, who have a genuine love of their job, will continue their fine work. It’s been an absolute privilege to be part of the Hurawalhi Maldives and Kudadoo Maldives Private Island team.
