A Lithuanian company has unveiled plans to build a "fantasy resort" staffed only by blondes in the Maldives.

The Maldives requires foreign developers to hire at least 50% local staff but Olialia brand manager Lauryna Anuseviciute says "staff who are not blonde will wear a blonde wig to make everyone look similar".

She insists Olialia already has secured financing but Maldives tourism officials say they have not received any details about the resort and have not issued any permits.
