Maldives’ Siyam World welcomes first guests

The 54-hectare property has officially opened on the Maldives’ Noonu Atoll

The resort welcomed its first guests with a traditional Maldivian dance and boduberu drumming sessions before hoisting the flags of Siyam World, Beach House Collection and the Maldives.

During the opening ceremony, Sun Siyam Resorts managing director and founder Ahmed Siyam said: “This island is one of the most unique products we have developed as a group, a game-changer and record-breaker in every way. There will be no resort that can measure up in terms of never-seen-before experiences, abundance of space and variety of accommodation. We’re excited to welcome our very first guests at Siyam World and look forward to delivering an unforgettable holiday experience for everyone.”

Siyam World GM, or ‘island chief’, Tom Mcloughlin said: “We are on one of the largest natural islands naturally formed and not reclaimed which ensures a pristine house reef that includes the famous snow-white dive site in the Maldives.”
