Sheraton Maldives Full Moon Resort & Spa has won the 2016 Starwood Cares for the Community Awards in Asia Pacific division. Sheraton Maldives received the award for its remarkable efforts initiated last year to support and improve the conditions at the Home for People with Special Needs in Guraidhoo.
The Management and associates of Sheraton Maldives organised several fundraising events which included a charity run in which the national record holder Hassan Saaid himself participated to show his support, a jumble sale where all the profits went to the home and also the donation of furniture and bathroom fixtures amongst many others.
Established in 1976, Home for People with Special Needs is a rehabilitation home on the island of Guraidhoo that provides special care and services to over 150 residents between 15 to 95 years of age from homeless, old, young, mentally and physically disabled.
Starwood Cares for the Community Awards acknowledges and celebrates the efforts of Starwood properties and associates who ‘set the bar’ for community involvement. Over 3,150 associates globally voted for the winners out of the top three finalists from each division.
Joining millions around the world to mark the Earth Hour 2016, Sheraton Maldives Full Moon Resort & Spa has announced a number of special events to mark the day including the introduction of blindfold dining experience.
Guests will enjoy an exclusive 6 course dinner prepared by Executive Chef Roman Gernoth and his team while blindfolded at the signature restaurant Sea Salt while listening to live music by a solo performer. Dark dining or blindfold dining experience concept is based on removal of vision enhancing the other senses to increase gastronomic pleasure.
“We are very excited to introduce and host the blindfold dining experience in the Maldives on this occasion. This not only allows the team to show its creativity; but most importantly creates a memorable and unique experience for our guests who are joining us to mark this day” said Mr. Rashvan Ibrahim, F&B Manager.
Other activities that have been planned include a special Earth Hour Maldivian buffet with live Bodu Beru performances, cultural shows and several other activities to generate awareness about #ChangeClimateChange in thinking about our actions today which will decide what tomorrow will look like for generations to come.
