Siacle Shift in Focus Amid India-Maldives Diplomatic Standoff

Dear Travel Agent Community,

At Siacle, we’ve always been committed to providing you with the best B2B booking experiences, and today, we want to share an important update regarding a shift in our focus.

In light of the ongoing diplomatic tensions between India and the Maldives, Raftel International Private Limited, our parent company has made a strategic decision to temporarily suspend the distribution of Maldives tour and travel packages through all of their platforms including Siacle Marketplace. This decision is not a business move; it’s a reflection of our commitment to standing in unity with national sentiments during challenging times.

Why the Decision?

The diplomatic stand-off has led us to reevaluate our offerings and consider the broader context of international relations. In these times, we believe it’s essential for businesses to align with the collective stance of our nation, and we are no exception.

Transparent Communication through Social Media

To keep you informed and engaged, we’ve taken to our official social media channels, including Instagram and Twitter, to announce this change. Our commitment to transparency means that you’ll always be in the loop about our decisions and the reasons behind them.

Exploring New Horizons: Lakshadweep and Andaman Islands

This shift isn’t about closing doors; it’s about opening new ones. While we’ve temporarily halted Maldives packages, we’re encouraging our travel partners and agents to explore the beauty of our own country. Indian destinations like Lakshadweep and the Andaman Islands offer a wealth of experiences, from pristine beaches to rich cultural tapestries, providing an alternative that we believe will capture the hearts of travellers.

Industry-Wide Response and Unity

Siacle isn’t alone in this decision. As reported by various sources, other travel companies in the country have also taken similar measures. This collective response within the industry demonstrates the shared commitment to navigating these challenging times together.

A Vision for Domestic Tourism

We see this shift as an opportunity to contribute to the growth of domestic tourism. By redirecting our focus to Indian destinations, we aim to showcase the incredible beauty and diversity that our own country has to offer. We believe that this can be a positive step not only for Siacle Travel but for the entire travel industry during the diplomatic stand-off.


Change is a constant, and at Siacle, we embrace it with a spirit of adaptability and resilience. We want to assure you that this shift is temporary, and we are continuously monitoring the situation. As we navigate through these uncharted waters, we appreciate your understanding and support.

Thank you for being a part of the Siacle Agent Community.
