HACCP certification is highly regarded in the hotel and food industry. It is the international standard of Food Safety and is based on companies complying with the WHO “Codex Alimentarius” and is also equivalent to ISO22000.

“It is one of the most sought-after accreditations in the foodservice industry and affirms our commitment to providing excellent service at world-class standards.” Martin Vossen, CEO, CCR

To achieve accreditation and be awarded HACCP certification, the properties in the collections must adhere to strict food safety standards throughout the supply, storage and production process and complete an annual audit review by an accredited body.
CCR has partnered with an organization from the UK, Ian Greaves International.UK (IGI.UK), and over the recent year has formed a strong working relationship thereby enabling the properties to achieve HACCP accreditation but also to provide the learning framework for the professionals within the organization to obtain their personal certification from HACCP Level 1 and to Level 4 for our executive chefs. Together HACCP Administrators, operations teams, supported by Zakariyya Easa, Director of Training & Development, they adhere to the strict practices and protocols with a passion for quality experiences delivered safely.

“It had been seven years since the Food Safety/Hygiene Policy for CCR was introduced to the company in June 2013. A HACCP preliminary audit took place In January” Zakariyya Easa, Director of Training & Development, CCR

With new properties opening and our collection growing each year, it is our understanding, continuous training, and refresher programs for the operational team in line with local and international requirements result in us being proud of our newest property, Innahura Maldives Island, for been certified well before completing its first year in operations.

Globally our guests and the partners look for the peace of mind the accreditation of HACCP provides. HACCP is recognized in countries such as UK, member countries of the European Union (EU), USA, Canada, Australia, UAE and many others.

Today, CCR has reached a level where HACCP and its principles are embedded in the business with policies and procedures firmly placed and from arrival to departure, especially in the Kitchens, Restaurants and Accommodation. We continue to extend our commitment to excellence and actively participate with Travelife and Local authorities.

With the re-new certification, guests can enjoy their stay at the CCR resorts with the confidence, in properties providing the very best-in-class services who are at the top of the hospitality industry in the Maldives and the world.

Coming soon; assurance that Crown & Champa Resorts addresses the concerns born out of the recent pandemic with our ‘caring for your wellbeing’ commitment.

Defining Excellence in Hospitality

May 29, 2019

At Crown & Champa Resorts, we strive to provide excellent hospitality that ensures the highest standard of customer satisfaction. However, without the support of guests, partners and our incredible team, these efforts would be futile. We are proud to announce that we were awarded the 2019 Certificate of Excellence from TripAdvisor.

This award is bestowed on businesses that have consistently garnered great reviews on TripAdvisor, with only a small percentage of companies being able to accomplish that. For us, most of our properties received the 2019 Certificate of Excellence, with some of them entering into the Certificate of Excellence Hall of Fame. The latter is in recognition of properties that have been awarded the Certificate of Excellence every year for the last five years.

The properties that received the 2019 Certificate of Excellence are Hurawalhi Island Resort, Komandoo Island Resort & Spa, Kuredu Island Resort & Spa, Meeru Island Resort & Spa, Veligandu Island Resort & Spa and Vilamendhoo Island Resort & Spa.

We wish to thank all the guests who share feedback on review platforms, helping spread the news of the greatness of Crown & Champa Resorts. While we appreciate the awards, our greatest reward lies in satisfying guests’ needs.
