In celebration of World Oceans Day, Holiday Inn Resort Kandooma Maldives, in collaboration with Parley for the Ocean (Maldives), organized a special reef cleaning scuba dive. Certified scuba diving guests joined Kandooma’s own qualified divers for this event. The enthusiastic team spent the afternoon cleaning the reef behind Kandooma Island, removing 3 kg of rubbish, including metals, plastic, and fishing lines. After their return to the Kandooma Dive Centre, the group enjoyed refreshing drinks while discussing the day’s activities. This collective effort not only helped sustain our precious underwater ecosystem but also raised awareness about the crucial importance of protecting our oceans and reefs.

General Manager of Holiday Inn Resort, Mark Eletr said, “Being a keen scuba diver myself, I am aware of the challenges our marine life is facing and it is important to create awareness through initiatives such as our World Oceans Day Reef Dive. It is fantastic to see the guest turnout and support, and I’m very proud of the team at Kandooma who get behind any opportunity to go the extra mile,” 

“IHG’s Journey for Tomorrow is our overarching guiding light of what we want to achieve as a group by 2030 with a series of ambitious commitments to drive change. Responsible tourism relies on individual properties like Kandooma also flying the flag and doing what they can for their local communities, people and the planet.” he added. 

One of the participating guest Ms. Selena Nguyen shared her experience: “It was a rewarding and an eye-opening experience . I feel fortunate to be a part of such a meaningful activity on World Oceans Day.”

Located in the South Male Atoll, just a 40-minute boat ride from the airport, Holiday Inn Resort Kandooma Maldives is a stunning island paradise. With white sandy beaches, swaying coconut palms, and turquoise waters, it provides the perfect backdrop for various leisure activities and some of the best diving in the Maldives. Guests can select from Garden and Beach Villas, two-story Beach Houses, and the popular Overwater Villas for their stay. Families are well catered for with 2- and 3-bedroom villas, the Kandoo Kids’ Club, and a full activities program. Six food and beverage outlets ensure guests can enjoy diverse culinary experiences and explore the flavors of the Maldives. For ultimate relaxation, sun loungers and hammocks are scattered around the island, and the Kandooma Spa by COMO Shambhala offers a serene escape for both body and mind.
