OBLU By Atmosphere Appoints Bill Ignatiadis as their New General Manager
OBLU by Atmosphere at Helengeli has welcomed a new General Manager.
Previously having worked at the first property under the Atmosphere Hotels & Resorts Hospitality brand in the Maldives, Mr. Bill Ignatiadis was posted as the Resort Manager at Atmosphere Kanifushi Maldives in Lhaviyani Atoll up until the beginning of 2017. He has now taken up residency at Helengeli Island as their new General Manager.
Bill deems fit for the role, given his previous experiences working with several world‐renowned brands back in his native Australia. Some of these brands include LVMH, One & Only, and ACCOR properties, and other unique environments and locations. Together with the vast experience acquired from working in such high‐end brands, Bill also has a strong background in the Food & Beverage department. He is now seamlessly incorporating all his skills in OBLU Helengeli’s operations.
Bill commented on his first impression of OBLU at Helengeli, “I really fell in love with straightaway. It is fun, funky, fresh but still has that relaxed island feel. The House‐Reef is really just spectacular and being able to see dolphins almost daily 50 meters from breakfast is just inspiring! Helengeli Island encompasses the true essence of The Maldives!”
OBLU at Helengeli follows Atmosphere Hotels & Resorts core brand philosophy of ‘The Joy of Giving’ which is deeply incorporated into the resort’s customer experience. This is clearly demonstrated from the positive feedback and sheer number of guests that have returned to Helengeli more than a few times since the resort was launched in November 2015.
Aside from the marvelous contemporary and vibrant designs of the resort, Bill believes the core strength of OBLU at Helengeli is the staff. Their dedication and how they are so genuinely committed in providing guests with ‘best in class’ service, ensuring each guest have memorable experiences during their stay. The fact that OBLU’s significant number of repeater-guests are thanks to guests specifically returning because of individual staff members is truly inspiring to Bill.
OBLU at Helengeli continues to strive forward in the 4‐Star Superior segment, having recently been selected within the “TOP 100 Resorts of the World” by ITS Germany and awarded the prestigious ITS RedStar Award.
Helengeli Island is located in the North of Male’ Atoll and is accessible 50 minutes via a speedboat. It is home to an exotic house reef and also an impressive number of marine life such as giant sea turtles, lobsters and silver-tipped sharks. The resort comprises of 116 villas in four categories and a range of various activities to make for the best vacation!
