In an ever-changing world that is becoming more digitized day by day, the tourism industry of the Maldives tirelessly strives to keep up. As the main driving force of the archipelago’s economy, it has become crucial for the hospitality sector to meet the demands of a clientele that prefers “online” more and more. Here to meet this increasing requirement is ROOMIE, the ultimate personalized hotel mobile application to aid the Maldivian hospitality scene to engage its guests on a digital platform.

Already having revolutionized the tourism sectors of hospitality giants such as Malaysia, Thailand, the United States and Canada, ROOMIE is now eyeing the Maldives and Europe with major plans to upgrade hospitality providers’ engagement of guests.

ROOMIE works from the moment guests enter your hotel, guest house, resort and this versatile app provides everything from hotel services, information, entertainment as well as guest feedback.


Shedding light on the innovative single platform app, ROOMIE’s Assistant Vice President of Business and Partnership, Fytra Aziz explained that the app is compatible with both iOS and Android, synchronizing with televisions, smartphones, computers, laptops and tablets.

In an interview to Mihaaru from Paradise Island Resort, Fytra stated that ROOMIE’s services include ordering room service through the mobile app, while its video streaming platform also allows hotels to entertain guests with a variety of shows including the latest movies and blockbusters.

ROOMIE’s Assistant Vice President of Services, Alvin Lee, further declared that the app is also directly beneficial to hospitality providers themselves, such as significantly cutting down technical, maintenance and operational costs. As an example, he explained that ROOMIE can provide online information about promotions and whatnot with a single click to guests, instead of the old-school method of manually delivering printouts to each suite.


The backer we have to thank for bringing ROOMIE to the Maldives is Win Solutions, the local bringer of such “smart solutions” to the tourism industry.

“We’re charging USD4 per room on a monthly basis. Those who sign up for ROOMIE will be able to engage and entertain their guests staying at their hotel, resort or guesthouse,” said the company’s Managing Director Mohamed Naseer.
