Sun’s General Manager, Abdulla Fathhey – who also recently received the title of the 2020 Best General Manager of the Maldives by the World Luxury Awards in recognition of his commitment to excellence and outstanding achievement in luxury hospitality – is thrilled with the success of his resort.
“These awards, collectively, are an honour bestowed to us by our wonderful guests. I am forever grateful to all our guests for their loyalty to Sun Island and their appreciation of our staff for providing exceptional service at all times,” he says.
