The Housing Development Corporation (HDC) has revealed that it would re-open Farukolhufushi for private events in the near future.

Speaking about this to Sun, the Public Relations Officer at HDC Ahmed Mashaar said that the criteria and rent prices will be publicized within a few days' time.

He also noted that just as before, bookings can be made via the allocated portal.

“Just as before, it will be leased for weddings, corporate and other kinds of events.”

Farukolhufushi was operated as a resort until it was connected to Hulhumale' Phase II in 2016.

It was leased for events until the Covid-19 pandemic hit. At the time it was operated as an isolation facility as the situation in the country declined with numerous cases.
