COMO Hotels and Resorts has appointed Pietro Addis as the new General Manager of COMO Maalifushi, a private island resort offering luxury, surf, wellness and family adventures in the Maldives’ Thaa Atoll.
Pietro joins COMO from Aman Resorts, where he worked as Area Manager for Sri Lanka since December 2012. During this time, he was responsible for the overall management of the two award-winning properties in Sri Lanka: Amangalla in Galle Fort, and Amanwella in Tangalle.
After graduating with an honours degree in history from the University of Manchester, Pietro started his career as an analyst with Dutch bank ABN AMRO in London. After two years, he moved into luxury travel, working with some of Britain’s leading operators, including Scott Dunn and Cazenove + Loyd.
Hans Jörg Meier, Chief Operating Office at COMO Hotels and Resorts, said, “We are excited to have Pietro as part of our COMO family. I’m confident that COMO Maalifushi will continue to grow under his leadership.”
COMO Maalifushi, which opened in January 2014, is the ultimate island for guests seeking Indian Ocean seclusion. Working with the existing team, Pietro will further enhance the luxury experience for visitors, including the gastronomy, COMO Shambhala wellness offering, surf instruction, dive centre and family-oriented excursions.
