Conrad Maldives to provide internship opportunities to children at orphanage
Conrad Maldives Rangali Island has partnered with the government to provide internship opportunities to children at the country’s main orphanage.
At a ceremony held at Conrad Maldives’ Ithaa Undersea Restaurant last week, a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed by the resort’s General Manager Stefano A. Ruzza and gender ministry’s Programme Manager Jalaa Zuhuree.
As part of the partnership, children aged 16-18 at the Children’s House orphanage will have the opportunity to complete a year-long internship at Conrad Maldives. It will enable them to further pursue a career in hospitality and tourism — the mainstay of Maldivian economy.
“It’s our aim to provide knowledge and training to the children under our care, so that they’ll have the necessary skills to pursue employment opportunities in the future,” gender minister Zeneesha Shaheed Zaki said, at the ceremony.
Conrad Maldives Rangali Island is located in South Ari Atoll and is accessible by a 30-minute seaplane flight from the Maldives main airport.
As one of the Maldives’ leading resorts and one of Hilton Worldwide’s flagship properties, the award-winning Conrad Maldives Rangali Island resort offers 150 villas and suites, 12 restaurants and bars, two spas — all stretched over two remote islands. It features the Ithaa Undersea Restaurant, world’s first undersea restaurant made from only glass.
Conrad Maldives Rangali Island is home to two unique spa experiences; The Spa Retreat on Rangalifinolhu Island and the Over Water Spa on Rangali Island. Combining expertise from around the world with carefully selected products and therapies influenced by the environment, the two spas offer unique and effective experiences to suit the needs of every individual.
The luxury resort also offers the popular Conrad Concierge mobile app, which gives global luxury travellers the ability to customise details of their hotel stay before, during, and after each visit via a smartphone or tablet. Whether it is pre-selecting bath amenities or checking in while in-transit from the airport, guests can access a variety of features by using the app.
