The announcement of Masdhooq Saeed’s appointment as General Manager by Sun Siyam Iru Veli, Maldives, marks a significant turning point in the resort’s pursuit of providing visitors with an unforgettable, yet genuine, tropical island escape.
Masdhooq has a stellar 22-year history in the hospitality sector with a plethora of experience from well-known companies including One&Only Resorts, Jumeirah Hotels and Resorts, and Six Senses Hotels, Resorts, and Spas. His broad experience includes managing all aspects of the Rooms Division, spearheading pre-opening initiatives in China and the Maldives, and being instrumental in the rebranding of Diva Maldives as LUX* South Ari Atoll in 2011.
As stated by Masdhooq himself, “Luxury is a feeling, not a product.” We establish an emotional bond with our visitors and the variety of experiences we provide. Over monetary value, our customers prioritize individualized and unique experiences that are in line with their ethical principles. This is the reason our visitors come. And you win—hearts, minds, and so much more—when you get that right, when you can establish that connection.
Masdhooq continually distinguishes himself as a transformative character who actively fosters the growth of others and offers opportunities to those in need. Setting the standard year after year, he has not only developed teams but also steered careers and launched new services under his unshakable leadership and rallying cry of “Anything Is Possible.”
