Government-owned company ceases Club Faru resort operations

The Maldives Tourism Development Corporation (MTDC) decided to cease operating the Club Faru resort as of May 15 this year, according to local media.

In January, the Tourism Ministry took control of the resort from the site’s previous owners following the expiry of their lease agreement.  The ministry handed control of the resort to the government-owned MTDC until phase two of the Hulhumale’ reclamation project was completed.

MTDC Managing Director Mohamed Matheen told local media that the Tourism Ministry had been notified to take over resort’s operations.

“There are no tourists on the island right now. We stopped the operation of the island, and have been temporarily taking care of the island until a decision is made,” Matheen said.

The MTDC previously requested an extension from the Tourism Ministry to the time period during which the company could operate the resort.

“We wanted to operate the island until the reclamation of Hulhumale’ begins. Even though we let tourists come to the resort, our plan was to empty and hand over the island by giving one month’s notice,” said Matheen.

“But we still don’t know when the reclamation will begin. But we have to keep some staff there to monitor the island until the government takes over,” he added.

Currently, the number of staff on Club Faru has been reduced to “about twenty”, according to Matheen.

Discussions with two foreign companies regarding phase two of the Hulhumale’ reclamation project – which includes Club Faru resort – are ongoing, according to the Housing Development Corporation (HDC).  The HDC is in charge of the Hulhumale’ development.

  1. A typical mullahs response:
    "This was once a nudist resort in the 70s but see how it has ended? The Pompeii of Dhivehistan has been brought down to its knees! Dhivehistanis will you still not fear?"

    What would be their reponse to Earthquake in Kuwait/UAE, when their arch-enemy, just adjacent neighbors was untouched?
    What must have the Japanese and Indonesians done to deserve the Tsunamis that ravaged? Did they do something that angered creator?
    What has the Bangladeshi's factory-workers done, when the unbelievers, were untouched?

    None of the Mullahs stories have ANY basis for their claims!

  3. All of them are horrible filthy sinners of course. Just like the evil Jovian sodomites who cause Jupiter's storms and disgusting Venusian fornicators who cause volcanic eruptions on Venus.

    When mullahs howl these "facts" at Dhivehistanis and shed a tear or two, gullible Dhivehistanis immediately start wearing bodybags and going for holy jihad. Such is the power of baseless faith in Arab doctrine.
