Introducing Ali Navaz, General Manager

Komandoo, one of the country’s best-ranking resorts for romance and a firm favourite to anyone looking for an adults-only, small island getaway in the Maldives, is pleased to announce the appointment of Ali Navaz to the position of General Manager.

Prior to accepting the offer to lead the passionate team of Champions at Komandoo and manage this 65-villa gem in the north of Lhaviyani Atoll, Navaz has acquired a wealth of experience within Crown & Champa Resorts since joining them in 2017. He began as Front of House Manager at our sister resort Hurawalhi Maldives and two years later became Rooms Division Manager. His hard work & continuous support to the Hurawalhi team paved the way to his promotion to Resort Manager there in March 2021.

Navaz’s career in hospitality started in 2001 and has seen him work in various positions, from Guest Relations Officer to Guest Relations Manager at various Maldives’ Resorts. In 2008, he worked as part of the pre-opening task force for Six Senses Zighy Bay where he was primarily involved in Front Office setup and training the butlers. In 2014, he was part of the Management Training at Six Senses Ninh Van Bay for one month and also trained the Front Office team. His passion for guest service and his success as Resort Manager for over a year at Hurawalhi, makes Navaz the ideal leader for Komandoo and he looks forward to working with the Champions to make your holiday as incredible as you hoped it would be.
