Maldives resorts as peaceful as ever

first_imgIs it still possible to go on excursions?What’s more, 125 of the 1,196 islands of the Maldives are reserved exclusively for tourists – so on the vacation islands there is usually no contact to the locals, except for the resorts’ staff. Therefore, the Reethi resorts organize excursions to local islands, always making sure that guests have a comfortable experience. Asked if guests keep going on excursions to local islands in spite of the situation or if they are frightened to leave the resort, Fayaz says, “As long as we have been in operation I can’t recall any guests who were frightened to go on trips or excursions, as our team always accompanies guests on such trips. At the moment, we haven’t taken guests to local islands, but we do go to sandbanks and lagoons for snorkeling and diving. Fear is not a word that generally exists with the Reethi Faru and Reethi Beach experiences.”Are there also excursions to Malé?The Gili Lankanfushi team has a similar approach. In answer to the question, if the resort still offers excursions to Malé, Tammy Gan says: “We can still arrange excursions to Malé on request, with guests accompanied by a certified tour guide from the resort, but most guests opt to relax at Gili Lankanfushi and enjoy the wealth of activities and experiences available within the resort and the surrounding seas.” However, many guests at Gili Lankanfushi still wish to get in contact with locals: “We are still arranging visits to local islands for guests, where they have the opportunity to meet local communities, learn about authentic Maldivian culture and experience the laidback island way of life.” No reason to avoid the island nationThinking of locals, one should also remember that most of them are dependent on tourism. A lack of visitors would be a financial disaster for many Maldivians. Travelers looking for a sustainable holiday experience that does not only contribute to environmental protection, but also benefits the local residents – as is the case with Green Pearls’® partner hotels – should always keep this aspect in mind. Of course, seeking information on the current situation is always advisable. However, as long as it does not change fundamentally, there is no need to worry when traveling to the Maldives. “We continually monitor all political situations in the region, and maintaining our guests’ safety and peace of mind is our priority”, Gili Lankafushi states. So, if travelers are concerned, they can always contact their resort for more information.Source = Green Pearls What is the situation on the resort islands like?Enjoying the unspoilt nature on the Maldives and leaving the daily routine behind – this is what characterizes vacations at the sustainable island resorts Gili Lankanfushi,Reethi Beach and its associated resort Reethi Faru. Over the last months, the relaxed atmosphere at the resorts has not changed, as the interview partners Zayan Fayaz, communication manager at the Reethi resorts, and Tammy Gan, communication manager at Gili Lankanfushi, state unanimously. Fayaz explains why: “Since most guests pass through Malé International Airport (Velana Airport), they don’t have to face the occasional situations that happen in the busy city of Male.” This is because the airport is not located directly on the capital island Malé, but on Hulhule Island. From there, tourists are directly transferred to their resort. Even “the short-lived state of emergency did not affect tourists visiting the region”, as emphasized in an official statement from Gili Lankanfushi, “and all flights and resorts operated as planned during the 45-day period.”How do the guests react?“The atmosphere amongst Gili Lankanfushi’s guests remains positive and relaxed”, notes Tammy Gan. “Our staff have had a small number of queries from guests”, she observes and adds that they can assure them of their safety within the resort and the wider region. The Reethi Beach and Reethi Faru resorts, too, are “as peaceful as ever”, says Fayaz. “Occasionally we do get questions about the situation Maldives is facing with occasional unrest in the capital city – but the question tend more in the direction of ‘How come the island is so peaceful but news sources say otherwise?’ You see, something that may be a little difficult to perceive from watching or reading about Maldives from another country is that the division into more than a thousand islands really does help maintain a peaceful atmosphere in most of the islands and resorts.”center_img Maldives resorts: as peaceful as ever?Maldives resorts: as peaceful as ever?The political situation in Malé, capital city of the Maldives, has been tense since the beginning of February. Due to the social unrest and the state of emergency from February 5th to 22nd, many travelers are wondering if a trip to the Maldives is safe, given the circumstances – not realizing that the political turmoil only affects the capital Malé. In order to find out more about the situation at the island resorts and how it is perceived by hotels and travelers, Green Pearls® interviewed representatives of its partner resorts on the Maldives.last_img read more

Six cemeteries across the island to be rehabilitated as a CBM

first_imgThe Technical Committee on Cultural Heritage announced on Wednesday that it would undertake as pilot projects the rehabilitation of six cemeteries across the island, as part of confidence-building measures (CBM) between the Turkish Cypriot and Greek Cypriot communities.In response to requests by both communities for the inclusion of cemeteries in the projects of the Committee, and in view of the provision of €70,000 worth of funding from the EU, six cemeteries located in the villages of Lefkonoiko/Geçitkale, Kofinou/Köfünye, Gypsou/Akova, Kalo Chorio/Vuda, Karavas/Alsancak, Mandria/Mandirga will be rehabilitated.Interventions will take the form of basic works such as cleaning, fencing, and planting of trees, the Committee said, noting that there was a possibility that additional cemeteries would also be supported in the future.Ali Tuncay, the Turkish Cypriot representative of the Committee said that “through the cemeteries project we will not only rehabilitate them but we will also deal with a humanitarian issue that will also help us to build the atmosphere of trust and cooperation between the Turkish Cypriots and the Greek Cypriots.”The clean-up and rehabilitation of the six cemeteries will be conducted with the support of the UNDP.You May LikePlarium I Vikings: Free Online GamePlay this for 1 minute and see why everyone is addictedPlarium I Vikings: Free Online GameUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoYahoo SearchYou’ve Never Seen Luxury Like This On A Cruise Ship.

lone voices before — only in January a minister in Nawaz’s government blamed Saudi petrodollars for fuelling militant Islam in Pakistan Related News A fewdays ago there was this Facebook post by an angry Pakistani recalling what a Saudi Arabian cadet at a Pakistani military academy had told his course mates The Saudi had been failing all his exams Counselled by his course mates to pay more attention to his studies so that he would be better equipped to defend his country the Saudi laughed it off “I will pay you to protect my country” he said The story may well be apocryphal But there was no mistaking that confidence when Saudi Arabia announced last week that Pakistan would be part of the “Sunni alliance” in its war against the Houthis in Yemen This time though — and surely to the surprise of that Saudi cadet who if he really existed must be an officer in the royal military by now — its ever-reliable client has not exactly jumped to obey Instead the government first made a vague statement declaring that Pakistan would defend Saudi Arabia against attacks on the kingdom’s territorial integrity Amid confusion over whether that meant Pakistan had already joined the alliance the government delegation headed by the country’s defence minister and including military representatives visited Saudi Arabia to “assess” the situation Then Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif passed the ball to parliament where he asked the people’s representatives to “guide” the government and said he was “in no hurry” to take a decision on the Saudi request After three days of a joint session of the National Assembly and the Senate the enthusiasm for a military entanglement on foreign shores that too in the treacherous shifting sands of West Asia was conspicuous by its absence The joint session went into a fourth day on Thursday Though it is not yet an outright no to the “biradar country” the reluctance on display is by itself a momentous shift for Pakistan especially so now when the country is headed by someone who owes everything he has to the Saudis It was the Saudis who spirited him away from prison and a life sentence to luxurious exile in a Jeddah palace in 2000 after the Pervez Musharraf coup And though they first opposed his return in 2007 it was they who later insisted that if Musharraf was going to allow Benazir Bhutto back into Pakistan he must not prevent Nawaz from doing the same Saudi officials have openly said they practically run Pakistan and that Nawaz a Sunni conservative on the right side of right-wing is their favourite Pakistani ruler When Nawaz visited Saudi Arabia last month none other than the new monarch King Salman was at the airport to roll out the red carpet It was a gesture that the Saudis reserve only for very special guests But they don’t indulge Pakistan for free In return for cash bailouts at regular intervals and other favours the Saudis have historically looked at Pakistan as a nuclear-armed ally that can help balance any threat from Iran Military ties between the two countries are strong The Pakistani air force flew Saudi fighter jets to repulse attacks from South Yemen in 1969 and Pakistani soldiers fought alongside Saudi troops to secure the Grand Mosque when it was seized by insurgents in 1979 A contingent of the Pakistan army has been stationed in Saudi Arabia for over three decades For the Pakistani man on the street the relationship with Saudi Arabia the custodian of Islam’s two holy sites is literally an article of faith A Pew survey in 2013 found that 95 per cent of Pakistanis had a favourable opinion of the desert kingdom and Pakistan was the only country in the Islamic world where favourable opinion about Saudi Arabia had increased In the face of all this it is nothing less than extraordinary that Pakistan is taking its time to think over the Saudi “request” for air force jets naval ships and ground troops The joint session of parliament saw heated speeches mostly suggesting that Saudi Arabia had enough resources to protect itself and Pakistan should not get involved The third day’s session ended with a call for a diplomatic initiative to resolve the conflict Lawmakers asked for a joint effort in this direction by Pakistan and Turkey The Pakistan army and perhaps even Nawaz knows that taking sides in this conflict will have consequences that can only deepen Pakistan’s own chaos Wading into another country’s power struggle that the Saudis have deliberately and self-servingly projected as a Sunni-Shia conflict can only widen the sectarian fault line in Pakistan Since 2008 from Karachi to Khyber Parachinar to Quetta thousands of Shias have been killed in attacks by homegrown militants schooled in what else Saudi-funded madrasas and mosques Plus the Pakistan army has made it clear that it has its hands full with the Taliban and Operation Zarb-e-Azb and would not like to be distracted with a messy involvement in another country Moreover with Saudi Arabia openly baiting Tehran the last thing the Pakistan army wants is tension on its shared border with Iran Not surprisingly even as parliament debated how it should respond to Saudi Arabia the Iranian foreign minister flew to Islamabad to discuss a diplomatic initiative to end the conflict He was received warmly and Pakistan declared all support to the Iranian mission Certainly it is not going to be easy for Nawaz to look Saudi Arabia in the eye and say no Quite apart from his own special ties with the House of Saud and the money and oil at concessional rates that Saudi Arabia pumps into Pakistan thousands of Pakistanis work in the kingdom as they do in the other Gulf countries and send home billions of dollars in remittances If the Saudis decide to squeeze Pakistan they have a number of ways in which to do it Hopefully Pakistan will keep its nerve in the coming days and not succumb to Saudi pressure Whatever the outcome what is truly remarkable is that perhaps for the first time there is an open discussion in Pakistan on the nature of its relationship with Saudi Arabia in its Parliament and in the media There have been lone voices before — only in January a minister in Nawaz’s government blamed Saudi petrodollars for fuelling militant Islam in Pakistan There have been laments and lampoons about the Arabisation of Pakistan at the expense of its South Asian moorings But mostly there has been a collective and reverential silence That silence has finally been broken though even now there is no direct or open criticism of Saudi Arabia Still if this small start could spur a larger debate on the toxic Saudi role in the rise of extremism in Pakistan and how deadly the biradar’s embrace has been Saudi military adventurism in Yemen would have had at least one positive
