I hope that you all had a great month of February. Reflecting back on what we have accomplished together for the past month, there is so much to be proud of, not the least of which is the ongoing dedication and commitment of all team members and our many partners in supporting our vision and mission on a daily basis.
Chinese New Year and Valentine’s Day were both wonderfully successful evenings thanks to our Food and Beverage and Oceaneers team.
Stand-Up for Our Seas – A Baa Atoll Initiative by Dr Claire Petros but also in association with Olive Ridley Projects. This expedition has raised awareness of the positive initiatives and changes that are contributing towards the protection of Maldivian marine life. The expedition has also promoted the wonderful endeavors that resorts, NGOs and local communities are already doing to protect their local environment and by doing so contributing to preventing climate change and protecting our oceans from plastic pollution.
There is little doubt that month of March will prove to be equally busy; however, through the collective efforts and support of all islanders, we will fulfill our mission: Curating idyllic island escapes, providing lifelong memories for our valued guests.
In closing, I would like to thank the entire Finolhu family for their continued hard work and adaptability to the numerous changes in meeting our guest demands. I would also like to thank our Strategic Leadership Committee for their commitment and availability, as well as our TSMIC team for their confidence and steadfast support.
I hope that you find our Roohu blog informative and I invite you to come back and visit frequently. We are continually updating our TSMIC Roohu site with new and additional information every month. We greatly welcome your comments and questions so please do not hesitate to contact us for information, assistance, or to make a recommendation of how we can improve.

BEACH CLEANING – by our Islanders
Beach clean-ups are considered to be very important because throwing trash into beaches and the oceans can be better known as pollution. When trash gets into the oceans, animals can easily mistaken that trash for food. An example of this is with the sea turtles.
Like every month, this month too we had our monthly beach cleaning organized for all the islanders. It is lovely to see islanders taking time from their busy schedules and some joining on their off day for these kind of events.
“Let’s all be part of the solution, not part of the pollution!”
