Local hospitality brand Kaimoo Resorts and Hotels will reopen its properties across Maldives in August and September this year.
Kaimoo owned and operated properties include Equator Village Maldives, Embudu Village and Summer Island Maldives resorts as well as the city hotels Mookai Hotel and Mookai Suites.
As Maldives prepares to reopen borders in July 15 to kickstart tourism again, Kaimoo announced that Equator Village was set to welcome guests from August 1 onwards, while the other four properties will open their doors on September 1.
Kaimoo assured that stringent health protocols are in place to guarantee the safety of guests, such as increasing the frequency of cleaning and regular sanitisation of guest rooms, restaurants, bars and other high-contact areas.
The company noted that strict cleaning protocols, based on science-driven technological solutions to reduce impact on the environment, will also be implemented on transfer boats.
Furthermore, Kaimoo noted that visitors will check-in at their suites in order to minimise time spent at communal areas, and practise social distancing on the properties.
"We have implemented these new measures to reassure our guests that they can have both a relaxing and safe holiday at our properties", said Manih Ahmed, the Managing Director of Kaimoo.
"Our staff will undergo training on how to implement these new measures. We will also put in place new protocols so that these measures and important updates are communicated promptly and transparently to guests".
Founded in 1979, Kaimoo is wholly Maldivian owned and presently operates five properties. Equator Village Maldives is located in Addu Atoll's Gan, Embudu Village and Summer Island Maldives are situated in Kaafu Atoll, and Mookai Hotel and Mookai Suites in capital Male'.
