Meet the Meeru Team: Abdulla Nasheed

Meeru Island has created the ‘Meet the Meeru Team’ blog series to recognise the outstanding work of our team members and for our guests to have a chance to take a peek behind the scenes and get to know some of the faces who make us your favourite palm-fringed paradise in the Maldives. 

Originally from Kurinbi, one of the inhabited islands of Haa Dhaalu in Thiladhunmathi Atoll, Abdulla works as a Housekeeping Supervisor and has been with the resort since 2017.

Abdulla, Meeru's Housekeeping Supervisor

How do you describe yourself? 

I describe myself as a hardworking individual who always gives his best to accomplish all tasks. I can work under pressure well and handle multiple tasks simultaneously in a calm and organised manner.

Can you share with us your journey with Meeru Island?  

I started my hospitality career at Meeru as a Gift Shop Assistant in 2017, and then I got promoted to the Housekeeping Coordinator role in 2019.  Now, I am working as the resort’s Housekeeping Supervisor. 

I have decided to take these moves because I believe that when life opens up opportunities for you, you either take them or stay afraid of not taking them. 

What do you like most about your job? 

What I love most about my job is that I get to meet many people with different personalities. I also enjoy the interaction with both our resort team and guests.

What do you do in your free time? 

I like to play football and watch movies in my spare time – these activities help me relax my mind after a long day at work. 

Of all the room categories at Meeru, what is your most favourite? 

Water Front Villa is my favourite category at Meeru Island. These villas are located on the beach, at the water’s edge, featuring a private sundeck and a spectacular view of the aquamarine lagoon.

Please share with us some of your career advice. 

When you are happy at work and love what you do, you can become excellent at your role. People who enjoy their jobs are more likely to be motivated, optimistic, and perform stellar work.

Additionally, every experience is significant and worth having and should be dealt with passion and enthusiasm.

World Tourism Day 2021 at Meeru Island Resort & Spa

World Tourism Day 2021 - Meeru Island Resort & Spa Maldives

Kicking off the Festivities for World Tourism Day 2021

Happy World Tourism Day! Falling in line with this year’s theme for the day, ‘Tourism for Inclusive Growth’, Meeru Island Resort & Spa held a cultural event that displayed the diversity of the Maldives’ rich history and culture.

For the cultural display, the team presented the ‘Dhafi negun’. The dance goes back decades to when the Maldives was still a sultanate when the labourers would celebrate a hard day’s work by doing a celebratory dance. The men would walk in pairs of two, with wooden spatula-like instruments. First, the dancers would sing a traditional ‘Gaa Odi Lava’ which was sung in Arabic. The dancers would then form a circle around a special ‘present’ usually gifted by the Sultan, singing and dancing around it until the beats became stronger, the chanting, and dancing more trance-like. Eventually, one of the dancers would pick up the ‘dhafi’ or present, and the dancers would slowly disperse.

The team at Meeru Island hosted the culture-filled evening with a lot of support from our guests. The sunny beach overlooking our Dhoni Bar was packed with guests cheering on, and looking in awe as the drums beat faster and the dancing more energetic. The evening was further enriched by our guests joining in on the dancing.
