A Maldivian Island has come on the market complete with building permits for a luxury hotel resort and spa.
Orivaru is a tropical paradise in the northern Maldives covering an area 11.8 hectares (29.15 acres) and is one of 71 island forming the Noonu Atoll situated approximately 100 miles north of the Maldivian capital Male. Only 13 of the islands are inhabited the closest of which is home to the luxury Hilton resort and spa on the island of Minaavaru just 5 kilometres away.
The Maldives are an extremely popular destination for scuba
diving and boast some of the finest corals and ocean life on earth. The
romantic charm of the islands have been a favourite with honeymooning
celebrities for decades with white sandy beaches and some of the most
incredible sunsets over the Indian Ocean imaginable. Orivaru is no exception to
this with a natural landscape covered in palms, rich vegetation and wildlife.
Planning permits issued by the Ministry of Tourism pave the
way for a luxury island resort including 97 five star private rooms and water
villas built around the islands coastline with integrated hotel facilities
comprising restaurants, guest lounges and spa. The island also features a
natural port allowing boats and seaplanes to berth without interfering too much
with the natural landscape
Being the lowest lying country in the world with an average
of just 1.5 metres of land above water, climate change and rising sea levels are
obviously a big concern for the Maldivian government who are working toward
becoming carbon neutral by 2020.
The administration are already carrying out assessments for
the introduction of wind power and with 15% of the country’s GDP spent on
fossil fuels are determined to reduce the country’s reliance on diesel powered
generators. Maldivian officials are also working in collaboration with Italian
designer Michelle Puzzolante to assess the viability of floating resorts
powered by solar energy.
The Maldivian registered owners are seeking offers in the
region 14 million dollars for their interest in the island and would be
developers literally have a blank canvas to create a luxury resort. The island
is held on a long leasehold from the Maldivian government although these are
frequently renegotiated and extended.
