Message from the Resort Manager
We began October with so much anticipation, it is with great honour that we value all our combined efforts to finish most of our priority tasks in a timely manner.
During this month, our Japanese signature restaurant, Feeling Koi and our Continental FRESH restaurant, were temporarily closed for enhancements, in preparations for the Festive Season.
True to our commitment, a deeper action plan was emphasised by the whole team, working altogether to complete all our initiatives, with regards to the Paperworks Audit Report. It was with great assurance and satisfaction to see all our leaders stepping into this mega project to address all non-compliances in a very efficient manner, prior to the final inspection on 5th November. A great collaboration of unity and manpower at Amilla Fushi.
As we keep striving for the best and to maintain the cleanliness of our blissful island, few days were heartily dedicated for garbage disposal. Many leaders and islanders went above and beyond the call of duty, by participating in these activities, braving the challenging weather. Kudos to all of you!
It is indeed so refreshing to roam around in a cleaner and greener island. Thanks to everyone’s dedication and cooperation, I truly value all your assistance during this critical period.
Nonetheless, it is also special and truly amazing, to witness all islanders’ efforts to keeping the essence of Halloween Celebration, particularly for our notable families staying with us!
Let’s keep the same spirit of unity and motivation growing, as we look forward to embracing the upcoming festive season!

She took initiative and looked after Japanese day visit guests who visited from Finolhu.
