Mookai Hotel celebrates 18th anniversary
The Mookai Hotel, a landmark in Maldives capital, celebrated its 18th anniversary Tuesday.
Among the first city hotels in Male, Mookai Hotel opened its doors on June 3, 2002.
Conveniently located just 100 metres from the airport ferry terminal, the hotel typically enjoys high occupancy with lots of repeater guests. It is especially popular among business travellers and tourists with short layovers before transfers to a resort.
The hotel has a gym and sauna, as well as a rooftop pool and conference hall — popular for business meetings as well as weddings and social gatherings.
Mookai Hotel also has large apartments available, in addition to standard rooms, which are particularly popular with those travelling with families.
The hotel has a mix of local and foreign staff, many of whom have worked there since the hotel opened.
“Today is another milestone for our hotel and our staff. Although we are closed because of the pandemic, we look forward to opening again before long and continuing our quality service to those visiting Male,” General Manager Ibrahim Ali was quoted in a statement, as saying.
Mookai Hotel is owned and operated by Kaimoo Resorts & Hotels, a leading hospitality business in the Maldives.
Wholly Maldivian owned, Kaimoo was founded in 1979 and today owns and operates five properties in the Maldives. This includes Mookai Hotel and Mookai Suites in Male.
They also operate three award winning resorts – Embudu Village Maldives, Summer Island Maldives and Equator Village in Addu.
