The group’s resorts temporarily suspended their operations from 1 April, due to the travel restrictions imposed by the government and throughout the world as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
However, Maldives is planning to reopen its borders to all nationalities from July.

The group announced that due to the many challenges they face at the moment with regards to the safety of guests and team members, along with flight connectivity to the Maldives, and travel advisories from around the world, they have decided to reschedule their opening date to 1 October 2020.
“We would like to thank all our guests, team members and business partners for the continued support during this difficult time that our whole world and in particular our beloved hospitality industry is facing,” a statement by the group read. “We sincerely apologize if your booking is affected with this decision. We are in the process of contacting our guests and business partners, in order to assist further.
