Bill Gates, philanthropist and founder of the world’s largest software business Microsoft has arrived in the Maldives on Sunday.

Mihaaru is aware that the billionaire is in Maldives for the holidays, and is staying at Anantara’s Naladhu Private Island, in the southern Kaafu atoll.

A number of his security personnel had arrived ahead, and reportedly, his luxury yacht was also brought before his arrival on Sunday afternoon.

Gates has visited Maldives several times before; earlier in the month, he had also met with Maldives’ Minister of Environment and Energy Thoriq Ibrahim at the One Plane Summit held in Paris, co-hosted by France, the World Bank and the United Nations.

Gates has topped the Forbes list of the richest Americans for 24 years in a row, until July when the Amazon founder Jeff Bezos surpassed him on the list with mere millions. He also runs the world’s largest private charitable foundation, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, with his wife.
