You & Me by Cocoon Maldives appoints Rashvan Ibrahim as Resident Manager
You & Me by Cocoon Maldives has appointed Rashvan Ibrahim as its Resident Manager.
Prior to joining the newly opened You & Me resort, Ibrahim held the position of Director of Food and Beverage at Sheraton Maldives Full Moon Resort & Spa for over four years.
Ibrahim brings more than 15 years of international luxury hospitality expertise, having worked in high-profile tourist destinations around the world, including the Maldives, Oman and the United Arab Emirates. He has a proven track-record as part of food and beverage teams of world-renowned hospitality brands such as Six Senses, Constance Hotels & Resorts, Taj Hotels, and Millennium & Copthorne Hotels, as well as leading local resort operators like Sun Siyam Resorts and Universal Resorts.
The second resort owned and managed by Cocoon Investments, You & Me is located in the secluded northern atoll of Raa, and is accessible by a 45-minute scenic seaplane flight from the main Velana International Airport. Alternatively, guests can take a domestic flight to the Ifuru domestic airport in Raa atoll, followed by a 20-minute speedboat ride to the resort.
Positioned as an achingly elegant, rustic-chic resort that exclusively caters to guests aged 16 and above, You & Me has 111 villas — of which 97 are overwater — and six superb dining outlets scattered around the island, each highlighting the resort’s unique views, flavours and features. The resort features five restaurants, offering Japanese fine dining and authentic Italian dishes in an elegant and rustic environment.
Guests can take advantage of the ‘dine around’ concept, where guests on Half Board Plus, Full Board Plus, and All-Inclusive packages can have lunch and dinner at any à la carte restaurant. They can also enjoy free-flow French champagne at a dedicated ‘champagne island’.
The new resort oozes romance, with drop-dead gorgeous villas and free flow champagne, not to mention an intimate fine dining designer restaurant, H2O by LAGO, which is fully submerged at the bottom of the island’s lagoon.
Cocoon Investments opened its first resort, Cocoon Maldives in March 2017.
Cocoon Maldives, located in Ookolhufinolhu Island in the northern Lhaviyani atoll and accessible by a 40-minute scenic seaplane flight from the main Velana International Airport, blends the best of Italian design with the Maldives’ stunning natural beauty. The five-star resort houses 150 villas that are exclusively designed by Lago, one of Italy’s finest design firms.
