I have had the pleasure to work with Hannu and Arja since 2010 and their knowledge and approach to sales in the Nordic Markets meant that we saw quick results in some of our key properties. Their relationships in the market are rock solid with a reputation second to none. Hannu is truly a machine and has a beautiful, underlying passion in all things Maldives and of course beyond. It has been truly a privilege, once again to engage with them.

I have had pleasure of knowing and working with Hannu and Arja since 2009 when we first met at Soneva Fushi. Since then, Hannu has done an outstanding job representing Soneva to the Nordic market which has significantly grown year on year. Hannu and Arja have an excellent rapport with their clients and customers. Their tireless involvement to make that vacation perfect is relentless as they live, breath, and feel the places they sell to their distinguished clients who are in search of that inspiring and unforgettable holiday retreat.

Hannu and Arja began representing Rayavadee, Krabi in May, 2013 and in a very short time, our exposure in the Nordic market has grown tremendously. The Nordic market is a good fit for our property but until last year we hadn’t really maximized its potential. Now, with their expert guidance and strong cooperation, bookings have increased dramatically and the Nordic countries represent one of our fastest growing markets. Both Hannu and Arja have a carefully selected portfolio of properties, allowing them to focus a great deal of attention on individual clients. They make themselves easily available and have a hands on approach to the business. Better still, they are caring professionals and a pleasure to work with. I would not hesitate to recommend their services to others.

During my 6 years working with Hannu and Arja has been a reliable, passionate and results-oriented representative for me in the Nordic countries. Their knowledge of this market is probably second to none and the friendly and engaging personality made it always a pleasure working with them. I can’t think of any better sales representation in the Nordic Countries.

Having known and worked closely with Hannu and Arja since 2006, I can attest to a professional and very well connected duo in the world of luxury travel in Scandinavia and beyond. They have always been able to accurately and with distinction represent my resorts, be it in Thailand or Maldives, and more importantely perhaps, by fully understanding the modern luxury travel connoisseur, Hannu and Arja has been able to with flair, capture the essence of what each unique property has to offer our guests on an emotional and almost intimate level. They are both passionate about luxury travel and has always been personally involved with each booking, ensuring guest expectations is not only met, but personalized and exceeded time after time. With the exciting launch of Bamboo Collection Luxury and Lifestyle Hotels, I am confident they will continue to raise the bar of luxury travel experiences to our Scandinavian friends.
