The world-class destination celebrated for year-round sunshine, statuesque palm trees, manicured gardens and unparalleled hospitality is welcoming a new generation of restaurants, retailers and galleries to the storied City just in time to meet a growing consumer demand for travel. The City's award-winning hotels, a varied mix of Forbes Five Star, AAA Five Diamond and boutique properties, are also preparing up for a sunshine-filled summer, welcoming travelers of all kinds. Nearly 90 percent of American travelers expect to take trips this summer, whether to vacation, visit friends or relatives, travel on business, or attend a conference (source: Destination Analysts, May 2021).
“Beverly Hills has an ease and energy that attracts businesses and visitors from around the world,” says Julie Wagner, CEO of Beverly Hills Conference & Visitors Bureau. “Now that we're open again, visitors will find shoppers venturing to our designer retailers and unique boutiques, restaurants welcoming guests with elaborate new outdoor dining experiences, and families picnicking in our picturesque parks – it's a beautiful time to be in Beverly Hills.”
Business in Beverly Hills is projected to surpass pre-pandemic levels and expand to include a variety of new retail and restaurant options for visitors to enjoy this summer. Travelers will also get a glimpse of what to expect in Beverly Hills throughout the summer via a Sending Sunshine social media campaign featuring a series of video vignettes inspired by the City's sun-soaked hotels.

Accor welcomes guests to be part of a sustainable future in the Maldives
Fairmont Maldives Sirru Fen Fushi is the sole resort on this pristine atoll boasting a crystal-clear 600-hectare lagoon, one of the largest in the Maldives. Its enormous marine ecosystem has thrived thanks to the resort's marine conservation efforts. Guests can take part in the resort's coral restoration project by helping the Resident Marine Biologist to attach baby coral fragments to frames under the water. The Coral Nursery Frames are located next to the Coralarium, the Maldives's only underwater art installation. The frames in the nursery act as a tremendous human-made habitat for marine life to feed, spawn, and benefit from protection against predation. Each frame can be personalised with the guest's name on a tag. As coral fragments grow, the Marine Biologist will share photos to update guests on its progress in becoming a home for small schools of fish.

Fairmont Maldives Sirru Fen Fushi
Through the Turtle Rangers programme at Fairmont Maldives Sirru Fen Fushi, guests can become a close friend to the resident Hawksbill Turtle population. The marine biologist team will take guests out to the house reef to photograph the essential migration data. So far, 51 seasonal visitors have passed the resort's house reef, and around ten turtles decided to live around the island throughout the year. Each turtle has unique spot patterns on its face, which is similar to a human fingerprint, so it is easy to track the movements of your favourite turtles. The team at Fairmont Maldives Sirru Fen Fushi is happy to introduce guests to the unique turtles and share tips on a variety of conservation efforts to help protect the marine environment.
Across Accor's resorts in the Maldives, mindful travellers can now enjoy eco-friendly experiences which make a positive impact on the world.
