“The Maldives presents a unique opportunity for investors to own a piece of this island paradise. Our team is witnessing significant interest from our clientele,” said Galyna Galytska, Head of Sales – Maldives at MPP. “Besides the beautiful white sandy beaches and pleasant climate all year-round, buyers are drawn to the Maldives’ due to the high-profile properties and the potential for significant return on investment. By using their villa for their family holidays, owners can save a significant amount over the years, avoiding the high costs of premium accommodation. Additionally, when not in use, these villas achieve a strong cash yield through rentals. Rental rates start at an impressive $2,000 per night, ensuring a lucrative income stream for property owners,” she added.

Investor interest is coming primarily from Hong Kong, China, Russia, the CIS and Europe including Switzerland, Germany, France, Spain, the UK and the United States. They are predominantly seeking a combination of investment and a luxurious second home, with many planning to rent out their properties when not in use.

According to MPP, investors can expect significant appreciation on their investment with off-plan properties expected to see a minimum of 25% appreciation upon completion, while established properties offer a steady 10% annual increase in value. Also, the Maldives’ year-round tourist season and high occupancy rates guarantee a strong rental market. Rental returns are estimated to range from 5% to 15%, with an average of 7% to 9%.

Also, adding to the allure for property investors is the fact that properties are offered on a 99-year leasehold basis, with the possibility of extension at the end of the term.
