Accommodations are no problem either because there are luxury villas in Maldives, boutique hotels and budget hotels. Maldives is a romantic destination for couples with ideal places for pre-wedding photo-ops.
For the purpose of safety, the Ministry of Tourism in Maldives has decided to inspect all establishments that provide accommodation to tourists. At a press conference, Minister Ali Waheed announced that the decision to conduct inspections of all establishments is due to the recurring accidents in the tourism industry that have taken the lives of some tourists.
The inspection will include all guest houses, inns and hotels that accommodate tourists. The Ministry of Tourism will ensure their safety and adequacy to meet the needs of tourists. The tourism ministry will be conducting the inspections along with the Maldives Police Services and the Maldives National Defence Force.
The objective of the inspections is to find ways that will benefit the tourism industry and introduce desirable amendments that will prevent losses. Previous inspections have been carried out by the ministry but they were not done efficiently. Nine tourists have died due to various accidents. Three people who were employed in the tourism industry have died in three separate fire incidents.
The Ministry of Tourism has also revealed that the past year was very successful and profitable for the tourism industry. A 5.8% increase in progress was reported for 2018 with a record number of 1.2 million visitors. The largest number of tourist arrivals came from China while 48.9% were from Europe. The Ministry has also revealed that the number of beds available has increased to 44,890 in 2018.
