Huvafen Fushi Maldives Announces Two Key Appointments

Huvafen Fushi recently announced the appointment of Mohamed Hamdhoon as the new Resort Manager and Ibrahim Nathif as the Executive Sous Chef into the team.

With impressive track records in the hospitality industry and a legacy with Universal Resorts, both the Maldivian natives bring strong expertise to their roles and will uplift the resort’s transcendent journey to the next level.


Mohamed Hamdhoon, Harvard Development Management Program certified, joins Huvafen Fushi from Kurumba Maldives, a Universal Resorts property, where he led the Front Office Operations. With hospitality experience spanning more than ten years, Hamdhoon brings a wealth of experience focusing on outstanding levels of guest service. In his new role at Huvafen, he will manage all day -to-day operational matters along with the GM and support the iconic brand to deliver outstanding hospitality and enhance the overall guest experience, harmonious with the brand standards. Hamdhoon has also worked in different capacities at One & Only Reethi Rah, Maldives and Intercontinental Maamunagau, Maldives, positively impacting hotel performance, displaying exemplary work ethics, and exceptional attention to detail.

Chef Nathif brings over two decades of experience in international cuisine, of which 16 years were with Baros and Milandhoo, both Universal Resorts properties. As Executive Sous Chef, he will be in charge of leading all of the culinary programming and new menu developments, kitchen operations, implementing the highest kitchen standards, and sourcing top-quality produce. Chef Nathif’s expertise lies in French Cuisine, and key to his success is his intuitive focus on a modernist approach, attention to seasonality and customer experience – an approach perfectly aligned with his new role at Huvafen Fushi.

Noel Cameron, General Manager of Huvafen Fushi, stated that “Universal Resorts has always emphasised in empowering and grooming the Maldivian talent for the next level. Hamdhoon and Chef Nathif are remarkable gentlemen, each with outstanding career accomplishments and incomparable experience, and understand Huvafen’s and Universal Resorts philosophy to deliver the highest levels of service and delight our guests at all levels. Both of their accomplishments and experiences are truly an asset and will be instrumental in helping the Huvafen Fushi achieve new benchmarks.”
