Meet Bill McKenzie the Vibe Manager for Hard Rock Maldives.
What is a Vibe Manager?
A VIBE manager, or rather the Visionary Individual Behind Energy, has the task of curating the hotel atmosphere with lighting, music, decor, entertainment and surrounding memorabilia. They are the driving force behind Hard Rock’s unique events.
They are the go-to person for discovering and booking the best local music, the ins-and-outs of the scene, where to eat, drink and be merry… and so much more.
Bill’s Insider Tips:
“The local coffee scene is really good, single origin coffees from all over the world are regularly available from places like Meraki, Civil and Modus Operandi Coffee.”
” The best part of the music is scene is the tight knit group of local musicians means that the music community feels like one huge family. Everybody is always looking out for everyone else.”
“My favorite local boutique is Toddy. All items feature local designs complete with stories that teach about the culture of Maldives.” – Bill McKenzie, Vibe Manager
“The Henveiru Artificial Beach holds regular surfing competitions that are free to watch!” – Bill McKenzie, Vibe Manager
“The Ooredoo Color Run is a 5-kilometer fun-run with local bands playing at checkpoints every kilometer. It’s a great day out for families and friends.” – Bill McKenzie, Vibe Manager
” My favorite bar is at Cafe Del Mar. I love the Mediterranean Collins cocktail. (Maldives local city does not have any alcohol as it is a muslim country. Only resort islands can serve alcohol.)” – Bill McKenize
