The Outrigger Konotta Maldives Resort hosts and guests celebrate the resort’s anniversary

BY SILVIA COLLEPARDI — The Outrigger Konotta Maldives Resort (MOK) celebrated its first anniversary July 30 – Aug. 1 by inviting travel industry professionals to the resort for the weekend.

As part of the celebration, travel agents spent time on a site inspection, dolphin spotting, relaxing in the Navasana Spa hydro pool, enjoying complimentary non-motorized water sports and dining.

Hotel guests then joined the travel industry guests for a management cocktail by the main pool followed by a Maldivian night with barbecue dinner on the beach and Bodu Beru dances and music.

Resort Manager Elza Artiaga shared a thank you message (https://www.facebook.com/outriggermaldives/) that was posted live on Facebook during the reception.

To celebrate its first anniversary, the resort also launched a special package, inclusive of breakfast and dinner, that guarantees up to a 40 percent discount as part of its limited-period celebrations.

We’ve come a long way in our first year. Our picture-perfect resort is today very popular in a diverse range of markets: China, Korea, Japan, Russia, UK, Germany, France and the Middle East. Our deluxe 53-key resort has the largest average villa sizes in the Maldives.

The Outrigger Konotta Maldives Resort won “Luxury Contemporary Resort of the Year,” in the Luxury Travel Guide Global Awards 2015.

It’s been a great year. Thank you to everyone in the extended Outrigger ‘ohana for making it a successful first 12 months. The best years are still to come!
