Ruth Franklin discovered the Maldives almost 20 years ago while visiting as scuba diver in search of Mantas and Whale Sharks. When you find a destination where you fall in love with the people, the culture and traditions you tend to want to come back and that Ruth did. After visiting the Maldives over 30 times and chance meeting over coffee on the beach in 2012 the opportunity to begin a new journey was proposed.
Ruth was able to leave her career of 28 years in Retail and move to the Maldives to Co-Found Secret Paradise, an award winning, responsible and sustainable tour company. The company received TripAdvisor's Travelers Choice Award 2020 after five consecutive years of achieving Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence.
Ruth's passion for the people, the country and all that it has to offer can be heard in this coffee conversation.
