In his new role, Nahid will lead the Paradise Island Team to continue to create unrivalled guest experiences at the idyllic island, boasting 282 luxurious villas with a focus on indoor-outdoor living and relaxed sociability.

The DNA of Maldivian hospitality and our beautiful but very fragile environment are the most precious things we have inherited from our ancestors. I feel it’s our responsibility and duty to pass it on the future generations.

Therefore, the most important thing we shall do is to educate the younger generations about how to take care of and preserve the natural environment. Currently, we coordinate with local entities and schools to deliver educational programs to the youths and students of today. We are planning to introduce further programs and involve the younger generations in regular sustainability and conservation activities.

Nahid brings vast and diverse experience to the role with an impressive record of success in contributing to luxury resorts’ operational management while building exceptional guest relations and developing market performance in competitive and quality-focused environments.

He has previously held roles at global luxury hotel brands including Cheval Blanc Randheli Maldives and Six Senses Resorts in Oman and Koh Yao Noi, Thailand. Nahid also holds an MBA from Anglia Ruskin University in England.

Providing invaluable knowledge from his extensive experience, Nahid will lead the activation of the new concept on the property and instigate several sustainable initiatives in keeping with Villa Hotels & Resorts mission to preserve and protect the natural environment.
