There has been an increase of adventurers from the Middle East and GenZ travellers are keen to experience the lives and lifestyle of the local community. We organise special visits so that the guests can have a first-hand experience and participate in their special activities, such as tree planting, saving the coral reefs, and protecting the environment, to show how Maldives is managing sustainability. We can see that there are lots of travellers interested in sustainability. We don’t just sell rooms at Sun Siyam Resorts, instead, we provide our clients with unique experiences coupled with our 24/7 all-inclusive packages. From a simple horse-riding experience on the pristine beaches to plenty of water sports, we ensure that we provide our guests with bespoke experiences right throughout their stay.”
