Happy Market has announced that its resorts operated by Angiri Resorts will be giving two-month paid leave for all its employees under the brand’s four resorts in the Maldives.
The four resorts under the group are Thulhagiri Island Resort, Angaga Island Resort & Spa, Dreamland The Unique Sea & Lake Resort & Spa and Safari Island Resort.
Speaking to the local media, an official from the company said, “This is a difficult time for everyone. However we want to give a paid leave for our staff which is why we are temporarily shutting down our four resorts with paid leave. This is applicable for both local and foreign staff.”
The group informs that the paid leave is effective from 4th April for two months and encouraged their staff to spend quality time with family at their homes during this difficult time.
The government has taken a number of precautionary measures against the rapidly escalating state of the global COVID-19 pandemic including the suspension of on arrival visa for tourists. With this decision, the tourism industry has come to a halt.
