At its meeting this week, the Cabinet of Ministers approved the construction of a water villa resort on three leased islets off the coast of Kalpitiya.
Sun Resort Investment Lanka Ltd. had proposed to build water villas on three islets that the company had already leased. On the islets of Wellei I, Wellei II, and Wellei III, the company plans to build 50 water villas.
The Sri Lanka Tourism Development Authority (SLTDA) has previously bought 12 islets in order to boost tourism in Kalpitiya and promote the islets resort idea.
Countries like the Maldives, Indonesia, Vietnam, Mauritius, Mexico, Cambodia, Fiji, Greece, France, and Switzerland, according to the government, are effectively operating water villas and bungalows while drawing a substantial number of high-end international tourists.
Water homes and bungalows are built in the shallow seas around the islands in an environmentally sustainable manner and are provided with unique and stylish accommodation.
The Cabinet of Ministers adopted the Cabinet paper tabled by Tourism Minister Prasanna Ranatunga in this regard.
