Male’ Maldives, 22nd October 2023  – In the enchanting heart of the Maldives, a shining new star has emerged in the hospitality realm. Oaga Art Resort, a homegrown local brand, welcomed the world in January 2023 with an audacious vision to redefine luxury. In just a matter of months, it has already clinched two prestigious accolades at the Maldives Tourism Awards 2023.

The first award applauds Oaga for its remarkable employment of the highest number of Maldivian staff in a tourist resort, underscoring its unwavering commitment to local empowerment. Presently, an astounding 91% of its team comprises Maldivian individuals, forming a tightly-knit community affectionately known as the ‘Rahvehin.’ This community embodies values of mindfulness, openness, creativity, and empathy, weaving a uniquely enriching tapestry for the delight of guests.

Oaga’s dedication to celebrating the true essence of being ‘Maldivian’ extends into the realm of art. Local artists grace the walls of the Haruge Villas with vibrant murals, vividly narrating traditional Maldivian folklore through their distinctive styles. The Suvāsthi Art & Retail Gallery proudly showcases brands that are 100% Maldivian-owned, offering contemporary products inspired by the nation’s rich natural heritage.

The resort proudly boasts the largest collection of local art in any Maldivian resort, meticulously curated within the Veyoge Garden Villas. This immersive artistic experience beckons travelers to forge a deep connection with Maldivian culture. Notably, Oaga has also taken the significant step of insuring these invaluable pieces of local art, marking a noteworthy milestone in Maldivian artistic history.

Oaga’s commitment to the local art community doesn’t conclude there. For every artwork showcased in the Veyoge Garden Villas, the resort contributes $1 for each occupied night, offering artists a prominent platform to display their talent and ensuring their invaluable contributions are duly acknowledged and cherished.

The management at Oaga Art Resort underscores their distinct approach, remarking, “We aimed to stand out in the crowd and establish a local brand amid the industry giants. In doing so, we focused on highlighting the priceless contributions of local creatives, musicians, and artisans as the very heart of our concept.”

For wanderers in pursuit of an all-inclusive holiday, Oaga Art Resort’s “Greatest All-Inclusive” plan transcends the conventional boundaries of inclusive experiences. From art and music classes to bespoke dining adventures and exhilarating excursions, this package delivers an immersive and indelible sojourn.

Nestled in the North Malé Atoll, Oaga Art Resort is but a 45-minute speedboat journey from the Malé International Airport. Boasting 60 villas that include both beachside and overwater options, five diverse dining venues, and a spa steeped in traditional Maldivian healing practices, Oaga Art Resort pledges an artistic and culturally immersive escapade meticulously curated by local and visiting talents from the Maldives.
