Published on: Jul 23 2015 by Maldives by Capital Travel

3-Maldives-wONYX Hospitality has appointed Mr. Zafer Agacan as the General Manager for Amari Havodda Maldives.

Agacan has extensive experience of over 20 years in the hospitality industry  – a decade of which was spent in the Maldives. He has held various management positions at different international hotel brands in Australia, the United Arab Emirates, China and Maldives. Before joining ONYX, Agacan was with Ayada Maldives Resort and Spa, where he held the role of General Manager. Prior to that, he worked for four years with Hilton Resorts and Spa across two of their properties – the Conrad Sanya Haigang Bay & Double Tree by Hilton Sanya and the Hilton Maldives Iru Fushi Resort and Spa.

Commenting on his new role with ONYX, Agacan said, “I am looking forward to establishing Amari Havodda as a leading hotel in the Maldives. Tourism in the Maldives is strong and presents a great potential for a hospitality brand like Amari, which can provide access to the growing mid-market segment who aspire to visit the alluring destination. The hotel is ideally located on one of the pristine islands in the archipelago, enveloped by the exotic nature that the Maldives is renowned for. Guests may lounge away on the beachfront pool or enjoy the villas designed under the theme “Natural Simplicity”, whilst the guest rooms offer a contemporary and relaxing environment.”

Agacan will be responsible for the smooth operations of Amari Havodda during its pre-opening and once it begins operation in early 2016. The 120-villa property is located in the Southern Gaafu Dhaalu atoll, one of the most preserved atolls in the archipelago, offering a private hideaway. The resort will offer two principal villa types, “beach” and “overwater”, each providing uninterrupted views over the reef, the ocean and beyond.

Amari Havodda is owned by Crystal Plaza Resorts, a joint venture between Sri Lankan construction giant, Sanken Overseas and Singapore Hospitality Holdings, a Singapore based company specialising in resort investments. The resort will be managed by ONYX Hospitality Group.Havodda_1075-1024x768
