More tourism spots and ac­com­mo­da­tion types are in­te­grat­ing what­ever bit they can to do their part for Planet Earth with­out com­pro­mis­ing on qual­ity and the travel ex­pe­ri­ence. For Hu­rawalhi Is­land Re­sort, guests can be rest as­sured that the op­er­a­tions have gone the ex­tra mile to pro­tect its pris­tine sur­round­ings.

30% of the is­land is pow­ered by so­lar en­ergy (work­ing to­wards 60%), a wa­ter bot­tling plant on the is­land helps to re­duce plas­tic con­sump­tion, a food re­cy­cling pro­gramme and col­lec­tion of lo­cal green­houses helps pro­duce fresh food for vis­i­tors, and a de­sali­na­tion sys­tem helps to fil­ter sea­wa­ter into drink­ing and shower-ready wa­ter. At every step of de­vel­op­ing the re­sort, the com­pany is sure to keep the des­ti­na­tion as en­vi­ron­men­tally sus­tain­able as pos­si­ble.
