Summer Island Maldives celebrated international housekeeping week last week with a variety of activities for staff on the island.


The international housekeeping week is celebrated worldwide to recognise the hardwork of housekeeping and custodial staff in ensuring safe and clean facilities for tourists around the world. With the Covid-19 pandemic the work they do is more important than ever before.


At Summer Island Maldives, we take great pride in our housekeeping staff and rush at every opportunity to celebrate their work.


The week kicked off with a cake cutting ceremony in the morning, followed by a beach volleyball tournament between the housekeeping staff and the rest of the staff.


As stewards of not only the guest facilities, but also the environment, the next day saw the housekeeping staff and resort staff conduct a beach clean, after which the, staff participated in a fun afternoon of water sports.


The rest of the week saw a special football match and a fun, night fishing trip followed by a barbeque. The week also saw a special bed decoration competition between the housekeeping staff. The week concluded with a high tea for the staff.


“Our housekeeping staff are some of the most dedicated and caring people I have ever worked with. We are lucky in Summer to have such motivated staff that truly want to deliver the best experience for guests on the island,” said Summer Island Maldives’ HR Manager Ahmed Hamdhaan Hassan.
