INDIAN INVESTMENT IN MALDIVES TOURISM
With overall expansion and substantial growth in the Tourism Industry, contributing 33% to GDP of an economy which has witnessed an annual growth rate of 9% for the past two decades, has resulted in an increased demand for many services in this sector. Maldives with its unique natural splendour has become increasingly popular as one of the top tourist destinations world over. Yet, the Maldivian entrepreneurs to date have failed to exploit the full potential of the Indian market as well as to attract maximum investors in this sector. Nevertheless, exceptions like TAJ Group properties in Maldives, “Taj Exotica Resort & Spa Maldives” and “VIVANTA by Taj Coral Reef Maldives”, which are considered to be the best properties owned by the TAJ Group so far, and with few other hotels, are providing new incentives for Indian investors.
Maldives, through the eyes of the visitor can be rightly described as specks of emerald green enveloped by dazzling turquoise waters like scattered beads in the ocean; white powdery beaches, tall palms lean on towards the sea, crystalline white sands giving way to crystal clear waters, shades of turquoise blend flawlessly with deeper hues of blue; pristine coral reefs and some of the most incredible underwater life on our planet. This earthly beauty, which is unmatched anywhere on the planet, has made Maldives the preferred choice for travelers who appreciate the nature at its best.
Sun, sand and sea, a thousand ‘Robinson Crusoe’ islands, massive lagoons with different depths and infinite shades of blue and turquoise, dazzling underwater coral gardens; a perfect natural combination for the ideal tropical holiday destination. However there is more to the Maldives than just that.
