Kaimoo Resorts and Hotels, who own and operate Embudu Village, Summer Island Maldives and Equator Village resorts, have announced opening dates and reassure guests with stringent hygiene measures.

First to open is Equator Village Maldives in Addu Atoll – the resort is set to welcome guests on 1 August. Meanwhile Embudu Village and Summer Island Maldives are to reopen a month later on 01 September 2020. Mookai Hotel and Mookai Suites, both in Male, will also open 01 September 2020. 

The Maldivian government has announced that the international borders will be reopened in time for the summer holiday season, on 15 July.

A press release from Kaimoo says new hygiene measures include more frequent cleaning, and regular sanitization of guest rooms, restaurants, bars and other high-contact areas. 

Also, guests will check-in at their villas, reducing time in communal areas, and practice social distancing at the resorts. Transfer boats will also be subject to stricter cleaning measures. Kaimoo says the new procedures are science-driven and will use technology solutions to reduce the impact on the environment. 

Commenting on the new measures, Manih Ahmed, Managing Director of Kaimoo said: “We have implemented these new measures to reassure our guests that they can have both a relaxing and safe holiday at our properties. Our staff will undergo training on how to implement these new measures. We will also put in place new protocols so that these measures and important updates are communicated promptly and transparently to guests.”
