General Manager and DOS&M Bring Unique Expertise to Malé Hotel

Holiday Inn Malé, the first international-class hotel located in Malé, the capital of the Maldives, has brought together two industry high-fliers to jump-start operations at the stunning new city-centre property.

Brett Wilson, former General Manager of the award-winning Crowne Plaza Queenstown, New Zealand, has taken the top post at the 117-room property, with a mandate to set new benchmarks in hospitality on the capital island.

Brett’s success at the upscale Crowne Plaza in the trendy Queenstown location, and a track record of more than 20 years in the hotel industry, provides a strong platform for the highperformance Maldives environment.

Joining him at the 15-storey property – the highest building on Malé -- is Maldivian, Nabeel Abdulla, who has ten years experience in various roles at five-star resort properties throughout the country.

Before joining Holiday Inn Malé, Nabeel was Sales and Marketing Manager at the highly acclaimed Huvafen Fushi where he promoted the resort in international markets and was responsible for delivering record-breaking financial results over the past two years.

Just a short, five-minute speedboat ride from the international airport, Holiday Inn Malé offers world-class meetings and conference facilities, food and beverage outlets, extensive recreation and leading-edge communication facilities.

“We are both very excited at the opportunity to use the skills we have acquired in top-class hotels in high-performing environments to drive success for this wonderful new property,” said Brett.

“As the first international-class hotel in the capital, we are perfectly positioned as the premier business and leisure connection to the Maldives: an upscale stopover for those visiting the outlying islands and the place to stay if you are here on business.

“The service and facilities, including upscale restaurants and extensive banquet and meeting facilities, redefine the concept of hospitality on the main island,” he added.
