  1. Hi Mirko,

    I believe his talking about the past experience before the closure of the resort. Now speaking of, I am also going to join next week, in the f&b. How about you!


  2. There are several irregularities in this resort. The Executive Chef act like the owner of the resort, and does whatever he wants; The doo doesn´t care about the Maldivians´rights, and spend most of the day drkinking alcohol at Meeru bar, or driving the buddy, which means, doing NOTHING.
    There are some bribes between departments, to get special benefits regarding food, or other issues.
    The COO is Michael Wieser, an Austrian.
    There is a high turnover rate, due to the management and the living conditions.
    That place is a joke: the less you do the better you are treated.

    1. This is quite worrying review for me as i was considering moving to work there… Could you please give me further information at the following email address:
      I would really appreciate that. Thanks a lot
