About 30 years ago, a group of scientists said the Maldives would disappear within 20 years. For many, a holiday to the Maldives become epitomised as the ultimate must visit destination because within a generation it simply would not exist.
Fortunately for us today, Maldives holidays are still an option, and hoteliers continue to expand with multiple new developments scheduled for opening over the next 5 years reaffirming their faith in the future of this island nation. But don’t get too complacent. Sea levels are still rising, and that means that land mass is still being consumed yearly. Whilst we are probably in no danger of loosing the Maldives within the next 30 years, as more land is lost, land that remains will become more expensive. It should not them come as a surprise, that within a generation, prices for Maldives holidays will be as outrageous as the ostentation that has over taken the resorts that make up this island paradise.
