Andres Rubio, an intrepid veteran hotelier with an in-depth knowledge of the Maldives, has returned to the Indian Ocean island nation as General Manager of the recently opened Loama Resort Maldives at Maamigili.

Mr. Rubio's entry into the hospitality industry began when he left school at 15. Armed with the type of commitment and passion that has marked his career, he told Bogota Hilton he would work for free and subsequently spent a year as an unpaid waiter, before being assigned to the Zurich Hilton and finding himself in a country boasting the world's best hotel schools and a reputation as a breeding ground for future general managers.

Since then Mr Rubio's hotel management career has seen him wait tables in a Swiss castle, be pitched about in mountainous seas, on glacier-strewn North Sea cruise liners and get to know intimately some of the world's most renowned resort islands including Koh Samui and Bali.

At the Maldives he helmed Dusit Thani's opening and oversaw Alila Villas Hadahaa's metamorphosis into the Park Hyatt.

"Guests at Loama enjoy total seclusion, unchartered reefs and secret beaches," Mr Rubio said. "They also experience the warm and fun Maldives hospitality, and exciting activities that are in keeping with the island's first art, culture and heritage resort, like visiting a traditional village on a neighbouring island with an expert guide."
