Holiday Inn Resort Kandooma Maldives kicks off annual Mini Olympics
Holiday Inn Resort Kandooma Maldives kicked off its annual Mini Olympics on Saturday, as employees gathered for two weeks of fun-filled sports and games.
The Kandooma Mini Olympics consists of 11 team sports, six individual sports and another six fun games. Participants include 415 employees from all divisions of the resort.
Kandooma’s General Manager Joseph Della Gatta told local daily Mihaaru that employees prepare in advance for this event every year. It allows staff from different sections and departments to come together and bond while having fun, he added.
“Such an event keeps the staff motivated,” Joseph said.
Accessible by a 40-minute speedboat ride from the main Velana International Airport, Holiday Inn Resort Kandooma Maldives offers 160 villas in four different styles of beach and garden villas, beach houses, family villas and overwater villas. Each villa type at the resort has been designed with cool clean lines with white washed timber providing warm texture to the unshod foot. Large picture windows mean that you are only a glance away from the great blue outdoors.
Amongst the six dining options on the island, fresh local seafood is served at The Kitchen Restaurant, which offers breathtaking sunset views. The newly refurbished Kandooma Cafe features Western and Asian meals and provides indoor and outdoor seating, while the Bokkuraa Coffee Club located next to the sparkling infinity pool offers a selection of coffees along with wood-fired pizza.
Guests can enjoy a work-out at the fitness centre or run on the jogging track around the island. Thai massages and body treatments are available at Kandooma Spa.
Holiday Inn Resort Kandooma Maldives is also surrounded by world-class diving and surfing sites, treating guests to the breath-taking underwater beauty of the Maldives. Alternatively, they can go on a catamaran trip around the region’s sand banks and take it easy with cocktails on a sunset cruise.
