Komandoo Celebrities: Nawal Abdul Razzaq

A friendly smile, a kind word and the desire to go that extra mile all help the service provided by the team at Komandoo to stand out, and your dream holiday in the Maldives to be that extra bit special. The Komandoo Celebrities series recognises those team members who help make the resort the amazing holiday destination it is. This month’s celebrity is Nawal Abdul Razzaq, part of our housekeeping team, and one of the friendly room attendants who help look after you during your stay.

Nawal first joined Komandoo in 2014 and has been part of the CCR family since 2010. Originally from the Haa Alif Atoll in the northern Maldives, Nawal first worked as a waiter for at our sister property Vilamendhoo before joining the Komandoo housekeeping team. His friendly and approachable demeanor makes him popular with our guests who always enjoy stopping for a chat with Nawal, and admiring his very impressive towel art that he loves to surprise with.

Winner of the September 2018 Champion of the Month Award, Nawal feels that to be the best at his job he needs to be “loyal and disciplined, meet deadlines and be punctual. As long as you do your job right, you are shining at all times.“

Outside of work, Nawal is a keen volleyball player, regarded as one of the top players both on the island and in the atoll and is a key player for the resort’s team. Nawal also enjoys a game of football, and the occasional surf session when the winds allow.
