Maldives Promotion House – The 2011 Rugby World Cup taking place in New Zealand is just a day away from kick off and the fever is catching on nearly half a world away in the tropical island destination of the Maldives.
Sheraton Maldives Full Moon Resort & Spa, one of the two Starwood Resorts in the Maldives, has joined the enthralling fever surrounding the tournament and is set to broadcast live telecasts of the game every day.
“The Rugby World Cup is an event looked forward to by many and that with passion for their favorite teams running high we want to ensure that our guests feel closer to the action,” Director of Sales & Marketing at Sheraton Maldives, Peter Foreman said.
In the classic setting of an English Pub at the Drifters Bar in Sheraton Maldives, guests will be able to enjoy free flow of chilled beers, juices and soft drinks for US$30++ after a long hot day in the sun. For guests who want to feel even closer to the host destination New Zealand, can enjoy free flow of Sileni’s wine from New Zealand for just US$45++.
“At Sheraton we always look forward to sharing moments like these with our guests. This is very much part of our philosophy as our core values are about connecting with each other and our communities,” Peter Foreman added.
