The Best Luxury Hideaway Resort in the Maldives as per Luxury Lifestyle Awards continues to impress, this time with a new health-related accolade.

The Best Luxury Hideaway Resort in the Maldives as per Luxury Lifestyle Awards in 2021 continues to impress, this time with a new health-related accolade.

Hideaway Beach Resort & Spa is now a COVID-Ready Gold certified property, administered by Hotel Resilient and verified by the Maldives’ own auditing company, NSURE. Gold Certification status verifies that Hideaway is following international and local guidelines, industry best practices, and the latest scientific research related to the pandemic.

To receive this top-ranking credential, Hideaway had to meet each and every global and local standard overseen by Hotel Resilient which included enhanced cleaning, risk controls, physical distancing, and response plans.

Since last year, the resort has focused a lot of time, energy, and resources on combatting the pandemic and reducing its negative effects. Several new strategies and policies were put in places, such as the creation of coronavirus-specific Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs), the formation of a COVID-19 Taskforce, and the hiring of new staff specifically dedicated to COVID-19.

This dedication to safety, coupled with the unique geographic disposition of the Maldives, is the perfect frontline defence. All resorts are situated on their own islands, accessible only by speedboat or seaplane and only accessible after getting a negative PCR test.

They are thus separated from each other, the capital city, and the main airport. This “one-island, one-resort” concept has kept the hospitality industry afloat in these challenging times and strengthened the public health response in the Maldives.

Balancing vacation and fun with health and safety is a unique challenge, but one that the Hideaway Team takes seriously. Hotel Resilient’s Gold Certification is a culmination of all these measures and highlights the fact that Hideaway Beach Resort & Spa is doing everything it can to be a safe tropical destination for tourists during the pandemic.

I would like to sincerely express my gratitude for the COVID-READY GOLD Certification and the amazing work accomplished by our team. More than ever, our priority is still unchanged and the health and safety of our guests and team members is our utmost priority.

Resident Manager of Hideaway Beach Resort & Spa, Christophe Adam.

While externally seeking this recognition, Hideaway Beach also turned internally and has been vaccinating staff against COVID-19. Through their #strongertogether campaign, and in close cooperation with the Ministry of Health, Ministry of Tourism, and Kulhudhuffushi Regional Hospital and Dhidhdhoo Atoll Hospital, Hideaway Beach established a vaccination centre and was able to offer the vaccine to all staff members that wanted to receive it.

At this time, the resort is excited to report 94% of their staff have received two doses and are thus fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

With the use of all tools we have in-hand such as masks, cleaning tools, resort app, and communication materials, we believe managing safety and cleanliness procedures and effective communication of those procedures to guests as well as associates is possible during this pandemic.

Safety & Security Manager of Hideaway Beach Resort & Spa, Akhil P. Chandran.

He is joined in the sentiment by the Resort Doctor, Dr. Anita Gurung who works tirelessly in the COVID-19 response and ensuring the well-being of all guests and associates on the island. “Proud to be a part of a team who is prepared to welcome you to where you can relax in a safe and tranquil environment while we ensure your safety and well-being is taken care of. With our vaccination efforts and common-sense approach to COVID safety at the resort, I am sure we will all get through this together”.

For travellers who are anxious about COVID-19 or vacationing during a pandemic, look no further: the Best Luxury Hideaway Resort in the Maldives has the health and safety of guests and staff as its main focus, both before and during your stay.

Tourists travelling during the pandemic can rest easy knowing their favourite hotel has made mitigating COVID-19 a top priority and now has the gold medal and vaccine card to prove it. Thus, guests can make it their top priority to rest, relax, and rejuvenate in the slice of paradise in Maldives.

Francesco Totti Lights up Siyam World Football Camp

Following Wayne’s lead was the legendary Francesco Totti, lighting up Siyam World for a second time as well. He visited from 28th March to 4th April. Totti is known for his flair and loyalty to AS Roma.

Throughout the action-packed week, participants savoured daily football sessions led by Owen, a team of UEFA-licensed coaches, and internet sensation Eman – popularly known as SV2 from his viral YouTube skills videos.

Dressed in their personalized Rascal training kits, young players aged from five to 15 seized the perfect opportunity to refine all aspects of their game, from tactics to technical skills. To add to the holiday experience, families enjoyed a memorable parents’ match, providing moms and dads with a chance to showcase their skills on the pitch.

Collaboration with Football Escapes – Rip Ferdinand

Later this year, and in collaboration with Football Escapes, Rio Ferdinand will also be hosting a football camp from 28 October to 1 November.

He will be bringing the skills he learned whilst playing for West Ham, Manchester United and Leeds United plus the England national team. 

At Siyam World, we are undoubtedly a paradise for sports enthusiasts, offering exceptional facilities for both water and land sports. My passion for football, which began in childhood collection jerseys of football legends, is embodied in our FIFTA- regulation football field. We host many football aficionados, including owners of prized jerseys and past champions who still share a deep love for the game. Siyam World is where sportsmanship thrives, providing an unparalleled destination for active trave;ers, says Ausy Waseem – Resort Manager at Siyam World.
