Caprice Gold Maldives - First Islamic Resort In Maldives

ADK Company of the Maldives signed Joint Venture agreement with Turkish hotel giant Caprice Gold to develop the Maldives’ first Islamic resort.

Caprice Gold Maldives island resort is five-star, 673-room resort in Shaviyani Atoll Gaakoshibee. Caprice Gold will invest $170 million on the resort. The resort is expected to become operational in October 2014. Similar to the Caprice Gold’s hotel in Turkey, the resort in Gaakoshibee will have a separate beach, villas and swimming pools for male and female tourists. The resort will not serve alcohol and pork, and its four restaurants will have halal certified buffets.

ADK Company Chairman Mr. Nashid said the resort being developed in two phases will be the largest resort in the Maldives and the first Islamic resort. Although the concept of Islamic tourism is new to the Maldives, the model will be a success, he added. ”We saw the hotel being operated by Caprice Gold in Turkey. They operate the place under this concept, but the occupancy is really good. That’s why I’m extremely confident that the company can make this concept a success ,” Nashid said.

“This resort will become a holiday destination for Muslims throughout the world.”

ADK company started developing the resort, which is a 50-minute seaplane ride from the airport, in 2007. Nashid said funds and equipment have already been received from his new Turkish partner. ”After a lot of work, it’s finally coming to an end. This has been my dream,” he added.
