Sun Siyam Resorts is also proud to announce the launch of its brand new website (www.sunsiyam.com). In line with the re-brand, the new website will reinforce and leverage the new brand identity. The website is clearly laid out, making it user-friendly and easy to navigate. Striking imagery and immersive video content enable visitors to the site to transport themselves to each distinctive property. With a direct booking system, improved functionality, as well as easy access to essential information and enhanced content, the new website perfectly complements the Sun Siyam Resorts’ rebranding strategy.
Being owned and managed by a 100 per cent Maldivian company the brand promise remains the same across all properties, whilst each property will maintain their own character, vibe and unique experiences revolving around the best of the destination, authentic culture and traditions.
“This is much more than a name change,” says Deepak Booneady, the Group Director of Business Development “because Sun Siyam makes great business sense. It is a new concept in crafting new experiences into the brand, which will provide a strong argument for us to attract more guests to our resorts. We have progressed from having no concept to having an inspiring one. That in turn will help us become recognisable to consumers as offering great value underpinned with truly amazing Maldivian hospitality. We are moving at an incredible pace, and I am happy we are able to move so swiftly because now is the right moment.”
