Having broken ground on an ambitious nine-island resort project in the Maldives, Thai developer Singha Estate is eager to realise its vision of “redefining the Maldives as a leisure and tourist destination” and “reignite and stimulate the country’s tourism economy”.
“The Emboodhoo Lagoon project has been conceived to meet the desires of the world’s large and rapidly-growing medium to upscale leisure segment,” said chairman of Singha Estate, Chutinant Bhirombhakdi.
When completed, the resort is expected to add 1,300 rooms to the destination and create over 5,000 jobs.
Singha Estate also aims to add sustainable value to all stakeholders and has pledged to support the Maldives’ ecological environment, local quality of life and economic growth.
As part of the project, Singha Estate will establish a Maldives cultural and Indian Ocean marine learning centre. Working with the local community and marine biologist, the cultural centre will promote the life and crafts of the islands nation and introduce marine conservation schemes dedicated to preserving and enhancing biodiversity in the Maldives.
