The Small Maldives Island Co. launches unparalleled benefits programme
The Small Maldives Island Co. (TSMIC), which runs three award-winning resorts in Maldives, has launched a special concierge service and benefits programme.
Maldives Aficionado is a benefits programme that was founded on the idea of giving travellers a true insider’s guide and a hassle-free vacation that supersedes all expectations.
“We attract travellers who like to connect emotionally through local specialists and have an experience far from generic,” Mark Hehir, CEO and Curator of TSMIC, was quoted in a statement, as saying.
“We want our loyal guests to feel special and valued, and what better way to do that than spoil them even more with the Maldives Aficionado benefits programme.”
The membership programme unlocks the ultimate VIP experience through an exclusive concierge service guided by experts who know the island by heart. Each visit is then rewarded with unmatched benefits, bringing to life holiday fantasies and ticking all travel bucket lists.
A tailor-made itinerary filled with activities that truly reflects the Maldivian culture and traditions is ensured by an experienced team dedicated to each visitor. From uniquely Maldivian activities such as island hopping to breathtaking private islands, bait fishing, luxury speed boat transfers and over the top 135-metre yacht rentals, to exclusive 1OAK events, rejuvenating spa time, there is no request too grand for Maldives Aficionado.
Being an “Aficionado” definitely has its perks. The TSMIC Ambassador title is awarded to members who participate in this referral programme with redeemable benefits accumulated through a three-tier point system classification:
- Coral (29 points)
- Plankton (30-50 points)
- Manta (51+ points)
The loyal members are rewarded with upgraded experiences, complimentary offers, special packages on a number of services, and value added home away from home benefits. From weekly sunset cruises, VIP invites to all TSMIC events, discounts on diving and excursions, to free treats like spa treatments, internet packages and seaplane transfers, the programme is second to none.
TSMIC runs Huvafen Fushi, Amilla Fushi and Finolhu.
Located just 30 minutes by seaplane from the main Velana International Airport, Amilla offers a choice of 59 Houses that sit gracefully over crystal clear waters, nestled amongst lush tree tops or huggin the shores of pristine white sand. Additionally, eight spectacular four to eight-bedroom Beach Residences ideally suited to large families, groups of friends and VVIPs seeking the ultimate in space and privacy are also available.
Amilla’s innovative restaurants range from the diverse, informal foodie hub Baazaar to the relaxed yet sophisticated overwater dining at the signature Feeling Koi. Guests can even drop in to gourmet café and deli The Emperor General Store or The Wine Shop and Cellar Door to treat themselves to lighter snacks, a favourite bottle or a gourmet selection of artisanal cheeses.
With an unrivalled range of purpose-designed multi-bedroom accommodation options, and an exciting, inspiring and active Kids’ Club, Amilla is putting the Maldives on the map as a destination not just for couples, but for families and friends.
Just 30 minutes by speedboat from sister resort Amilla, Finolhu is a stylish and eclectic retreat with a buzzy bon-vivant vibe and a refreshing, retro-inspired burst of fun for the region. Bringing toes-in-the-sand relaxation to fun-loving beach-erati alongside the best DJs, live acts and most fabulously chic parties in the Maldives. Finolhu’s 125 villas come on the ocean, the lagoon or by the beach, with or without pool in either one or two bedroom options being the ultimate island experience for chic couples, fun-loving families and gatherings of friends alike.
Located just 30 minutes by speedboat from the main airport, Huvafen Fushi ideally mixes Maldivian style with hip and chic features; thatched villas on the outside and on the inside, unique amenities, sophisticated design, contemporary furniture, high-tech equipment, and last but not least cool events which all contribute to make Huvafen Fushi a truly dreamy island.
