The St. Regis Maldives Participates in Global Journey Week




The luxury private island resort takes part in Marriott International’s initiative to engage and inspire top talent in Maldives.


Abu Dhabi, 16 April 2018: The St. Regis Maldives Vommuli Island Resort will participate in Journey Week from 16 April to 20 April, 2018.

The initiative, which is to take place in all Marriott International properties across Asia Pacific, is aimed to attract new talent while inspiring current associates to aim high.

The St. Regis Maldives Vommuli Island Resort will host a range of events for its current team as well as new talent on the islands, where senior leadership associates will share their career journeys to inspire others to reach their own career destinations.

Alexander Blair, general manager at The St. Regis Maldives Vommuli Island Resort, said: “Journey Week will encourage and inspire our associates and new talent in the Maldives of the world’s largest hospitality group to create their own future and shape the company, and also show potential employees why Marriott International is an employer of choice.

“Journey Week is a platform that reinforces our company’s global employer brand ‘To the Journey’. The week-long series of events will bring to life our value proposition: that Marriott International offers unmatched career opportunities coupled with a culture that empowers associates.”

There will be a focus on women leadership roles, where inspiring female staff members at the private island resort will showcase and emphasise their progression and journey throughout each stage of their career. The team will visit Hulhudheli School on April 16 to talk about opportunities in different departments in the hospitality industry, supported by a video on women leadership and followed by a panel discussion.

As part of Journey Week, talks on career guidance will be held at the resort on April 17 in addition to an open house at Maldives National University on April 19. Candidates are encouraged to interact with the volunteers and share their applications at the Marriott stall, after attending the presentations and panel discussions hosted by the resort’s team.

“Against the backdrop of increasing competition for talent and increasing growth of Marriott International in the region, it’s vital we focus on talent retention and attraction. Journey Week empowers associates with opportunities to have multi-faceted, meaningful careers,” Alexander said.

About The St. Regis Vommuli Maldives Resort

The St. Regis Maldives Vommuli Resort, which opened in November 2016, is nestled on a private island in a secluded Maldivian atoll, amidst thriving marine life. Just 40 minutes from Male by seaplane, guests are transported into a newfound paradise in the Dhaalu Atoll.

The resort draws inspiration from nature itself. Designed by WOW Architects | Warner Wong Design (Singapore), the unusual contemporary design of The St. Regis Maldives draws inspiration from the natural setting of the resort. This is represented by the manta ray shaped lagoon villas, a signature bar in the shape of a whale shark, a lobster-inspired spa and a spiral shell shaped library.

There are six distinct dining venues, including an Asian specialty restaurant, a modern Italian restaurant that features a grand staircase, an underground wine cellar restaurant, a shack style restaurant, a signature overwater bar that rolls out stunning views of dramatic sunset, and a pop-up restaurant in the middle of the resort. Additionally, guests can also enjoy the Iridium Spa, which presents six overwater treatment rooms, including two that are dedicated to healing Ayurvedic treatments. Spa guests can also enjoy a Blue Hole pool, which contains heated seawater with different water jets – a system with proven benefits to the body.
