Club Med Kanifinolhu Resort missing a tourist!

Sun.mv reports that a tourist at Club Med Kanifinolhu Resort has gone missing yesterday. He was last seen swimming in the shallows of the island with another tourist. See the full story here…

To prevent such sad happenings, we believe resorts shall do more such as to employ life guards on the beach etc..Read our previous essay on this issue here.. and on a Tripadvisor thread here..

Brands in the country

Here are some resort brand names in the country. Some resorts like Gaakoshibee by Mariot, Kandooma by Holiday Inn are working against time to finish the construction project to open the resort in earnest by 2010 or earlier. Still there are re-branded resorts like Zitahli and Adaaran which is only a name change and nothing else.
