It gave no further details but the group has been trying to increase its hotel business in the Maldive islands because of the downturn in tourism in Sri Lanka.
The group operates four island resorts in the Maldives having increased its presence in the archipelago with the Adaaran Select Huduranfushi resort commencing operations last year.
Other resorts are Meedhupparu, Bathala, known as a dive resort, and Rannalhi.
Aitken Spence's Maldivian properties have helped the group offset lower earnings in its Sri Lankan hotels, hit hard by the downturn in arrivals owing to the escalating violence in the ethnic conflict.
Aitken Spence operates a chain of luxury hotels in Sri Lanka and the Maldives, and is also in talks with several hotels in India to run properties there.
Two resorts in India, Barefoot Resort in the Andaman Islands and Poovar Resort at Trivandrum, have already commenced operations under Aitken Spence management.
The group has signed management contracts for several more properties in India and operations should commence in a few in the very near future..
