Atmosphere Kanifushi Appoints Philippe Claverotte as General Manager

Atmosphere Kanifushi Maldives, situated at the Lhaviyani Atoll in the Maldives, has announced the appointment of Philippe Claverotte as the resort’s new General Manager. The resort, which opened in 2013, recently launched 40 new overwater villas, completed in December 2019.

Mr. Claverotte’s career spans almost 30 years and includes luxury hotel groups and resorts across twelve different countries. This is his fifth leadership role in a luxury property. Prior to joining the Atmosphere Group in the Maldives, Philippe was previously the General Manager of Shangri-La Maldives, Sofitel Bora Bora and Chateau Royal Resort and Spa New Caledonia.


Speaking three languages (French, English and Spanish), Philippe is particularly focused on creation and implementation of Sales and Marketing objectives and strategies, team leadership and ensuring a personalized guest experience and customer service management.

The recent upgrade at Atmosphere Kanifushi with 40 brand new overwater villas is just one of many steps to push forward the ambitious plans of the Indian Ocean based hospitality group. Atmosphere Hotels and Resorts has recently announced that several new properties will be added to their existing five property portfolio.

Mr Claverotte commented: “As the first property launched by Atmosphere Hotels & Resorts, I am delighted to join Atmosphere Kanifushi at such an integral time in the resort’s development. I will be working hard to achieve even higher levels of hospitality and delivering our guests the resort experience that only a resort of Atmosphere Hotels & Resort can offer by following the core philosophy of ‘The Joy of Giving.’”

Mr. Giri Venkat, President and Chief Operating Officer, said: “We are delighted with Phillippe’s recent appointment as our General Manager for Atmosphere Kanifushi. With his extensive experience and knowledge of luxury hospitality, he will play an integral role in the continual success of the resort.”
