Baros Maldives is delighted to announce Ahmed Jihad-Jay as new General Manager as of January 2018.
Having worked at Baros Maldives in 2010 as Operations Manager, Ahmed is coming ‘home’ to Baros, this time as General Manager, after gaining a wealth of experience in the Maldives. He began his hotel career at Full Moon Maldives, after completing a degree in Hospitality Management at TAFE, QLD, Australia.
He started as Front Office Manager, working his way up to Resident Manager. This was followed by a stint at Sheraton Maldives before he joined the team at Braos for the first time in 2008. His career took him to NIYAMA Maldives in 2011, followed by Huvafenfushi, where he remained Resort Manager for the past five years.
Being one of the very first luxury resorts to open in the Maldives, Baros always remained close to Ahmed’s heart. He states: “I am delighted to return to my Baros Maldives family as General Manager and am thrilled to be a part of a resort and team with such strong Maldivian connections. The hotel is Maldivian-owned and is extremely proud of its roots and culture, just as I am, so I am so excited to take on this new challenge.”
Only the third resort to open in the Maldives (1973) and the first Dive Centre to open in the archipelago (1979), Baros Maldives is situated in the central southern part of North Malé Atoll, just 25 minutes by speedboat from the international airport. It is surrounded by a beautiful house reef, only 15 to 30 metres from the shore, alive with colours, fish, turtles, rays and coral. The resort continues to set the benchmark for a romantic, luxury holiday with genuine, heartfelt Maldivian hospitality. It has received countless prestigious awards from guests and the travel industry and remains a pioneer in conservation in the Maldives. 75 premium private villas, three restaurants, two bars and an outstanding spa feature on this small coral island.
