“Maldives is currently one of our biggest projects. We have a team of marine biologists working at the destination and making preparations for the marine discovery centre now as well” said by Dirk De Cuyper, Chief Hospitality officer of Singha Estate. He went on to add ““The students here are very enthusiastic and keen on learning about the marine life. We are anticipating that the project will be very successful in the Maldives as well”
