Raffles Maldives Meradhoo has announced the appointment of Matai Gilroy as its new Director of Sales and Marketing. From Tahiti and resident in Bangkok, Matai commenced his two-decade-long career in hospitality in his home nation, with roles in reservations and night management before specializing in sales.

Matai most recently held Director of Sales and Marketing roles at Thailand’s W Retreat Koh Samui and Niyama Private Islands in the Maldives. From an island himself and having always worked in luxury beach resorts rather than urban properties, he arrives at Raffles Maldives Meradhoo with an innate understanding of what makes the Maldives such a uniquely idyllic and indulgent holiday destination.

Raffles is an iconic brand with a rich history and bright future. I am excited to be part of the Raffles Maldives Meradhoo team, promoting a resort that is perfect for those who want exclusivity, intimacy, and peace in a setting that is as close as can be to the wonders of nature. I look forward to working with our partners to spread the word about what makes Raffles Maldives Meradhoo so special.

Raffles Maldives New Director of Sales and Marketing Matai Gilroy said.

In his new role, Matai will help to define the strategies, initiatives, and campaigns that will ensure the recently opened and intimate 38-villa resort is recognized as one of the Indian Ocean’s most desirable retreats. An accomplished free diver and surfer, Matai is looking forward to showcasing Raffles Maldives Meradhoo spectacular setting in the remote and unblemished Gaafu Alifu atoll as well as the exemplary service and attention to detail its accomplished team will offer.
