An opportunity to lease an island in Maldives and have your own resort

The Government of the Republic of Maldives has announced a public tender for the lease, development, operation and management of tourist resorts in the various uninhabited islands of Maldives – and we believe we can assist you win your bid for one of those islands.

With an estimated total of 1192 islands and 188 inhabited islands, the Maldives still has plenty of islands that it can offer for the tourism industry in addition to the 155 islands that are already in operation as tourist resorts. Tourism is the largest economic industry in the Maldives, and thus, the best industry for you to invest in.

The Government of Maldives has once again opened an invitation for bidding for the Lease, Development, Operation and Management of Tourist Resorts. There are 18 different islands from which you can choose from. Interested parties must purchase the Bidding Document from the Ministry of Tourism. The price of purchasing the Bidding Document for foreign entities is USD 3250 and USD 2250 for locals. Sale of the Bidding Document is now ongoing and with the extension that the Ministry of Tourism has given last week, it will remain open until 17th March 2022. This is by far one of the lowest island acquisition costs opened by the Ministry.
