New General Manager appointed at one of Jumeirah's luxury Maldives hotels

Chris Ely has now been appointed the General Manager of the The Jumeirah Dhevanafushi- one of two luxury Jumeirah Maldives hotels.

New General Manager appointed at one of Jumeirah's luxury Maldives hotels

It has been recently announced that Chris Ely will take up the role of General Manager at one of Jumeirah’s two luxury Maldives hotels - the Jumeirah Dhevanafushi. Chris, a British national, first started working with the Jumeirah Group back in 2005 where he initially worked as part of the Sports & Leisure team for various hotels and resorts within the hotel chain, making good use of his degree in Leisure Management which he obtained from the University of Manchester. In 2007, Ely was promoted to a Director’s role and formed part of Jumeirah’s Development team.

It was in 2010 that Mr Ely first began his relationship with the Jumeirah Dhevanafushi hotel, having the distinction of being the first Jumeirah colleague to join Dhevanafushi’s pre-opening team where he served as Director of Operations and was tasked with overseeing Rooms, Food & Beverage, Spa, Engineering and Housekeeping. With such a longstanding career in the hospitality industry there is little wonder why Mr Ely was appointed to the General Manager position at the Jumeirah Dhevanafushi.

As part of his new role as General Manager, Mr Ely will surely hope to continue growing the Jumeirah brand as they seek to increase the popularity of the Jumeirah Dhevanafushi as one of the top luxury Maldives hotels.

Located in the beautiful Gaafu Alifu Atoll, approximately 400 km south of the main island of Male, the Jumeirah Dhevanafushi is possibly one of the most beautiful luxury resorts in Maldives, boasting an immaculate collection of 22 private villas and 16 exclusive water villas; each featuring direct access to the crystal-clear waters which that make Maldives beaches some of the most coveted by holidaymakers across the globe. Additionally, guests booking a stay in one of the Jumeirah Dhevanafushi’s water villas will have their own private deck where they can work on that all-important sun tan in privacy, adding a really exclusive feel to their holidays in Maldives.

The Jumierah Group, a member of Dubai Holding, has an impressive portfolio of luxury hotels under its umbrella in popular holiday destinations like Abu Dhabi, the Maldives, Germany, Rome, Mallorca, Istanbul and London. In addition to the Jumeirah Dhevanafushi, Jumeirah also operates the Jumeirah Vittaveli located in the South Male atoll.
