Saeed - a bright, warm smile for everyone. Such a sweet, gentle soul.
Anyone who has been to the Maldives know that you rarely meet such warm, kind and helpful people as on these paradise islands. Many of them I am grateful and proud to call my friends. This clip shows Saeed, a stellar room attendant and Bodu Beru artist on Komandoo island resort in Lhaviyani atoll. He is an artist when it comes to decorating too, sooo creative, with an eye that never fails. A wonderful person indeed. He is one of the countless people we have met during our numerous visits that are such amazing ambassadors for their heavenly island counry - the Maldives. We will be on Komandoo on 11th of February, exactly one month from now (6th visit!), and see Saeed again. Can't wait to be back.
Below, more of the Komandoo champions!!!
Dammika, a real legend by now. All the way from Sri Lanka. The interaction with the staff is what makes the Maldives stand out so much and make people come back again, and again. The intimacy of a small island makes visitors and staff - even if it is for a week or two - for a time become family. Very few places in the world offer such seclusion as the Maldives. It is a true haven of peace, oceans away from the crazy pace of modern life. Once bitten, you have the maldives bug and there is no return. :-)
...and of course, the GM, Mr Mohamed Solah!!!!
Recently appointed GM Solah is rumoured to have made loads of upgrades lately. I look forward to seeing our beloved Komandoo slightly spruced up. I think Solah has got an energy and joy of life that will bring some spark and fire to tiny gem Komandoo. See you on the jetty Solah!
