Last week some people spotted Royal Saudi Navy ship anchored near Dhoonidhoo island. Equipped with 2 helicopters and high calibre guns this navy ship named Boraida 902 seems to be part of king's security. Little is known about the ship, but it is huge in size. Having cranes on the ship indicates it is also part of the support services. A part of king's luggage may have arrived by this ship. There was been reports that his luggage weighs 460 kg but the contents indicate it could be heavier. Bulletproof cars, escalators, king's bed are all reportedly part of his luggage. From security perspective this makes sense.

As arrival date of king's visit get closer we know he has booked 3 entire Maldives resorts. Latest reports say the king will spend his holiday in One&Only Reethi Rah while some of his entourage stays at 2 other luxury resorts. Several of Saudi royal family members are believed to be accompanied by the king on his state visit to Maldives. Salman Bin Abdulaziz first visited Maldives in 2014, then he was the Crown Prince and Defence Minister and he was on holiday. His son Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman reportedly visited Maldives multiple times.

Many multi-billion dollar investments have been signed during the king's tour to Asian countries. Saudi's interest in Maldives is about buying an atoll of 18 islands to develop an advanced city for the wealthy from around the world, this has never being officially confirmed by Saudi Arabia. Maldives president said the discussion was about a possible $10bn investment which will take Maldives to the forefront of the world.
