Amilla Maldives believes that Post Covid-19, hospitality will look very different, so they have devised a comprehensive strategy to embrace ‘the new normal’. Since they are a small company, their advantage is that they can adapt quicker than larger brands to meet the new priorities guests will have when selecting a resort, as well as their new expectations during their stay. The spacious size of their island and low room density is an advantage for social distancing goals – there is plenty of space for everyone! Amilla are building an experience that inspires confidence – from their marketing to their booking process, right through to daily operations. We realise that new priorities will include more consciousness about building/maintaining immunity through food and wellness practices that will help our guests to fully relax. They will also be meeting the anticipated increase in demand for anti-inflammatory foods, pure and natural ingredients and Homemade/Homegrown@Amilla produce. Amilla has committed to more investment in cleanliness, hygiene training and certification, reducing restaurant capacity and increasing spaces between tables and deeper and more regular cleaning of villas.
