Atmosphere Hotels appoints Simmi Pai as Vice President of Sales
Indian Ocean hospitality brand Atmosphere Hotels & Resorts has appointed Simmi Pai as its Vice President of Sales, as well as the Director of Sales and Marketing for its flagship resort, OZEN by Atmosphere at Maadhoo.
Simmi joins Atmosphere Hotels from AccorHotels, where she had served as the Director of Sales and Marketing for its Fairmont Maldives Sirru Fen Fushi resort.
Hailing from the Maldives’ closest neighbour India, Simmi has been living in the Maldives for over a decade. An Indian Ocean expert and destination specialist, she brings over 14 years of extensive experience in sales, marketing and revenue management. She has led the commercial teams of some of the leading luxury resorts in the Maldives, including Taj Exotica Resort & Spa Maldives, Taj Coral Reef Resort & Spa Maldives, and Jumeirah Vittaveli.
Simmi holds a dual degree in Hotel and Hospitality Management from the Institute of Hotel Management Hyderabad and IGNOU University in India.
Since the inception of Atmosphere Hotels & Resorts in 2013, the award-winning Indian Ocean hospitality brand has been rapidly expanding within different market segments: the four-star OBLU by Atmosphere at Helengeli, entry-level five-star Atmosphere Kanifushi, the luxury all-inclusive OZEN by Atmosphere at Maadhoo, and the four-star deluxe OBLU Select at Sangeli.
Opening in 2020, OBLU X in the Male Atoll will be the largest of all Atmosphere properties, with 350 villas and suites. This three-star property will have a contemporary approach and positioning, bringing Atmosphere’s high levels of service and experiences to the three-star segment like never before.
A second four-star OBLU property with 220 villas and suites will open in 2020 in the hugely popular Baa atoll, incorporating contrasting elements of nature and a cast-away theme.
Meanwhile, Atmosphere will take its OZEN brand to Sri Lanka with the opening of OZEN by Atmosphere at Tangalle in 2021. Also coming in 2021 is OBLU Select at Tangalle – with 118 rooms and suites – offering its premium all-inclusive holiday plan, The Serenity Plan.
