Cloud 9 to open soon

THE floating entertainment platform known as Cloud 9 should be back in operation soon.

However, Attorney-General and Minister for Tourism Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum said the platform could open once it relocated to a planned new site which was not within a surf area.

"As you know that Cloud 9 is no longer operational from where it was because it is within the surfing area," he said.

"We've had discussions with one of the major shareholders of Cloud 9 and they are looking at relocating to another site.

"I understand there have been negotiations with the landowners from that other site.

"That site that they have identified is not within a surfing area."

Local shareholder Tony Philp said he was keen to reopen the platform at Ro Ro Reef in the Mamanucas because he had been inundated with bookings and was worried about the livelihoods of his workers.
