In the latest instalment of Meet the Vilamendhoo Team, we get to meet Ahmed Hameel, Reservations Agent, and get a glimpse into his world.
What do you like most about your job?
It is difficult to mention just one specific thing. Getting to interact with people from all over the world. Having the opportunity to share the beauty of Maldives, and Vilamendhoo in particular. Helping people check items off their bucket lists and fulfilling life long dreams. These are all things I love about my job.
What are your hobbies?
I have dozens of different hobbies that I shuffle around every now and then. Playing football, basketball, billiards, video games and watching movies would be my top five.
What do you like most about the resort?
To most people the answer to this question would probably be the house reef or the sunset. Yes indeed, the overwhelming natural beauty of Vilamendhoo is truly magnificent. But to me, it is the people that I work with in Vilamendhoo that really sets this place apart. It is truly a privilege to be part of this team.
What does it take to be a good Reservations Agent?
Being a Reservations Agent is about more than just entering bookings into a system. To have good knowledge about the “product” and being an excellent communicator are the fundamentals. But in my opinion, to be a good Reservations Agent, you need to be able to think outside the box, be open to new ideas and be willing to burn the candle at both ends when needed.
