Meet the Meeru Team: Parvisha
For this ‘Meet the Meeru Team’ blog series, we ventured down into the kitchen and waited for a moment so that we could catch up with Parvisha.
Originally from India, Parvisha works as a Commis Chef at Meeru Island Resort & Spa and has been with the property for three years.
She holds a Diploma in Hotel Management and enjoys working in the kitchen and learning new and exciting things about her profession.
In her current role, she assists in the food preparation process, helps with deliveries and restocking, and contributes to maintaining kitchen and food safety standards.
Like all of the team members at Meeru Island, Parvisha’s contributions to guest satisfaction do not go unnoticed.

Why did you decide to become a chef?
I found my calling to cuisine at a young age. It was a childhood hobby that has turned into a fulfilling career, and I am truly passionate about it.
What was the journey that led you to work at Meeru?
After completing my college course, I applied for the internship programme here at Meeru Island. I trained for six months in 2017, and I was selected as a permanent staff and given the opportunity to work as a Commis III Chef.
What do you love most about your work?
It is a privilege to work in the Maldives for several reasons, including the culture, beaches, and tropical beauty – it’s like heaven on Earth!
At Meeru, I enjoy doing various tasks, especially when catering to guests’ needs and requirements, working with people with a positive mindset, and working for a company that cares for its employees.
What hobbies do you enjoy when you are not at work?
I love listening to music, dancing, and painting. I also enjoy gardening. In fact, I have a mini garden just right in front of my room!
What is your favourite among the wide selection of food in the buffet?
I do have a lot of favourites. I love omelettes, pasta, and hot dishes that are prepared and cooked fresh.
When I am at the live cooking station, I love interacting with guests and serving them these food items according to their tastes and liking. It gives me joy, especially when they come back and share their feedback on how they enjoy the food.
What food on the menu do you recommend guests to try?
That’s easy – fresh seafood that we have in the buffets daily. At Meeru, we serve freshly caught, locally sourced fish from fishers from the nearby islands.
Additionally, the meat selections at the live cooking station which are grilled as per guests’ requests and preferences.
We hope you get a chance to see Parvisha in action soon and taste her dishes. Furthermore, we look forward to introducing you to even more members of our team here at Meeru Island Resort & Spa over the coming months.
