Investment Opportunity

We need an investor to establish a guest house in an inhabited island. The location makes it an ideal place for tourists, thanks to the sandy beach and the ocean view.

First of all we will build the guest house and start operating. Land is already available and we are looking for an investor and partner to start the business. The Guest house will be built near the Sandy beach of North ""A.A Atoll in Maldives". There would be a nice view of the ocean and this would just make the perfect place to operate a guest house.

This is an opportunity to build a guest house or houses a in an inhabited island in Maldives and market them worldwide. The guest house operation is expected to bring very high profit earnings every month.

Maldives is a world famous tourist destination. Till recently, the tourism sector was dependent on resorts only. And inhabited islands were not open for tourism. Since Maldives is a high-end tourist destination Maldivian resorts have been very expensive and many tourists could not afford to visit Maldives despite their desire to do so.

Recently the Government has changed its tourism policy towards expanding the tourism sector to inhabited islands as well. This would be achieved by fostering the establishment of guest houses and other tourist facilities.

As a Maldivian, I am looking for an investor who can invest funds and be a business partner. I already have land of 3700 sq. feet which is enough to build a guest house of around 20 rooms which will be a four storey building. With sufficient funds, the building of guest house can be completed in a maximum of 1 year 6 months.

Looking at the occupancy of existing guest houses, the average occupancy would never go below 60% throughout the year.

The size of the business can be decided according to the available fund. Maldives tourism is a highly lucrative business marketed all over the world.

The construction of the guest house can be completed in 1 year if enough funds available. We can market the guest house through internet. We will build a web site where we customers can book the rooms and contact us. There is a huge market for Maldives because Maldives is a very famous place among tourists all over the world.

Competitive Advantage

As Maldives are being one of the most famous destination for tourists and making it cheap there would be more demand of tourists staying in the guest houses. There are many resorts near the island providing us with more demand from the visiting tourists.

Use of financing

Investment is needed to build the guest house and complete everything needed for it to become ready to market. That includes the furniture and other tools that would be needed to make a premium looking stylish guest house.

Opportunity for the investor

The payback will start after building the guest house from the investment when the business starts to operate. The profit would be distributed 50% based on a agreement both sides.
