Beautiful blue seas, white sandy beaches, far away from the rest of the world, a small island-nation, the Maldives has mesmerised its visitors for decades. It comes as no surprise that the tourism industry contributes an approximate 70% of the country’s GDP.

The distinctive geography, the picturesque coral islands and the vast seas makes Maldives a unique paradise for holiday makers. Ironically, these very features poses the biggest challenge to growing fresh produce and products in the country to cater for the increasing and demanding tourism industry.

Adding to the natural beauty of the Maldives was the excellence in quality of service provided by the 5 star resorts and hotels, continuously up-grading to target the high-end markets. Innovative strategies emphasising service differentiation to capture the elite market were becoming the norm.

As a result, the responsibility of importing and the prompt delivery of fresh produce by the resorts themselves were becoming too big a task to manage efficiently. The dynamic growth in the industry coupled with the changing strategies were creating a growing need for a trusted and reliable supplier of fine quality food. This had become the final missing piece to complement the excellent service provided by the hospitality industry in the Maldives and complete the picture of a ‘paradise holiday’.

In 1988, Ibrahim Rasheed, a Maldivian entrepreneur ventured into the business of sourcing and supplying fresh produce to the top resorts and hotels in the Maldives and established himself as a true pioneer.

Fantasy Private Limited under the flagship of Ibrahim Rasheed has become synonymous with quality and has been serving the Maldivian hospitality industry for the past 19 years with a well managed and professional team. Today Fantasy supplies to nearly all the high class tourist resorts in the Maldives such as Conrad, One&Only group of resorts, Anantara Maldives, Four Seasons Resorts in Maldives, Soneva Resorts & Six Senses Spa, W Retreat and Spa just to name a few.

We take pride in being the trusted leader in the market and source the very best of the finest food from across the globe and supply it to our customers in the finest condition. Our distribution network is supported with cold storages, warehouses and a fleet of temperature-controlled vehicles – another first in the Maldives.

With a vigour to serve nothing but the best to his customers, Ibrahim Rasheed travels frequently across the globe and attends all major food exhibitions in his search for the best fine quality foods. These endeavours ensures that Fantasy’s customers enjoy the best of the finest food available across the world and quality is never compromised.
