Gili Lankanfushi, Maldives has announced the appointment of Mr. Nicolas Khairallah as their new General Manager effect from 1st June 2021.

Mr. Khairallah has been working as Resort Manager of Gili Lankanfushi since October 2017 and brings 15 years of experience in luxury hospitality spanning 5 countries and 3 different continents to his new role.

After completing a post-graduate diploma in Hotel Management at the Swiss Hotel Management School in 2007, Mr. Khairallah joined the team at Sheraton Center, Montreal, Canada as Guest Services Manager where he was recognised as Employee of the Year in 2008. He has also worked as Director of Front Office for the W Hotel in San Francisco from 2011 and was appointed Cluster Director of Operational Innovation by Sheraton & Four Points by Sheraton in 2016, overseeing 3 hotels in Dubai, UAE.

For the past 4 years Mr. Khairallah has served Gili Lankanfushi in his position as Resort Manager, leading day to day operations of the resort and taking full operational control as an interim General Manager for the past 4 months and so is perfectly positioned to take up his new title and role with gusto.

On his new appointment, Mr. Khairallah says: “I am honored to be appointed to take the helm of one of the top luxury resorts in the Maldives. It is a true privilege to work alongside an amazing team of dedicated hosts who constantly rise above expectations to create timeless memories for our guests. As my Gili Story continues, I look forward to advancing the plan we have in place, to expand our brand’s reach, build stronger connections with the local community, maintain fruitful relationships with our partners and deliver genuine experiences for our guests”.

Taking his 15-year career in the hospitality industry and extensive knowledge and experience of luxury brands together with his position as an already established and well-respected member of the Gili Lankanfushi team, General Manager Khairallah is a tremendous asset to the resort team. As the pioneer of ethical, sustainable, barefoot luxury in the Maldives, Gili Lankanfushi will continue to provide guests with truly memorable experiences and uphold their commitment to fusing rustic design with unparalleled service with awe-inspiring natural surroundings, while striving to further enhance service quality and brand value into the future.

Best Experience:   OverWater Bungalows, Honeymoon, Beaches

Gili Lankanfushi is rated by many among the best resort in the Maldives, and with good reason. This stunning, 46-villa, eco-resort is just 20 minutes by speedboat from Male airport thriving in providing truly unpretentious, relaxed luxury. Barefoot are recommended (shoes are removed as soon as you leave the airport on the boat), and each guest is surrounded by the care of a personal butler with the title "Mr. Friday". The spacious, charmingly simple water villas are built of some types of wood and are equipped with open (and on the roof!) decks with seaviews that can evoke tears of joy. On land, a beautiful island with 683 palms offers a range of activities and an excellent dining options. This rare diamond in the Maldives is more authentic than other famous brand resorts at the same price - given the regular appearance in the Gili Lankanfushi of world celebrities. But if your own pools and air conditioning in each room are your priority, you can  Read Full Review...
