  • Rozaina Adam, Member of Parliament for Meedhoo Constituency
  • Mohamed Nihad, Member of Parliament for Feydhoo Constituency
  • Aims Health Care Pvt Ltd and their General Manager brahim Didi


“Finally a round of applause for our wonderful team and owners, for none of this would have been possible without the support and perseverance that they have shown. They went above and beyond to ensure that work was completed on time,” the statement read.

“Going forward, despite the challenges ahead, we remain positive and will continue to enhance our product and increase our offerings here at Canareef Resort Maldives. To that end, we have immense pleasure in announcing that we would be reopening more rooms in the coming days.”
