Holiday Inn Resort Kandooma Maldives Concludes Celebrate Service Week

Holiday Inn Resort Kandooma Maldives concludes a series of events for #IHGCelebrateService as part of 10 remarkable years of #TrueHospitality.

The premium luxury brand celebrated the Celebrate Service Week (CSW) with themed evenings with food & entertainment from different countries (where IHG employees come from), including Sri Lanka, Nepal, Bangladesh, China, Malaysia, Vietnam, Philippines, Indonesia, and of course an evening for the Maldives.


Several activities also took place including harbor cleaning, digging up the time capsule, reef scaping (building frames to help rebuild the coral reef), and an afternoon of fun games.

“What a fantastic week, from heartfelt thank you’s to inspiring stories, Celebrate Service Week saw thousands of colleagues from around the world celebrating the service our hotel colleagues provide to our guests. This year was extra special as we marked a decade of Celebrate Service Week in partnership with the IHG Owners Association and it was great to see so many hotels get involved.” was stated by InterContinental Hotels Group about the #IHGCelebrateService

Over 1,500 posts on social media using the hashtags #IHGCelebrateService and #TrueHospitality, over 6,000 thank you’s were sent using the IHG ecard tool and over 700 inspiring stories of True Hospitality were shared on the IHG microsite.

This is the 10th year InterContinental Hotels Group has been celebrating this initiative. CSW is about celebrating the diversity of IHG people as well as the common beliefs, like preserving the environment, that unites everyone.
