Sustainability In Luxury
Hurawalhi Island Resort opened late last year to welcome urban dwellers
These days, a heavier emphasis has been placed on sustainable and eco-tourism because of the alarming global warming rate. 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.
Maldives is world renowned for boasting amazing dive sites that includes a plethora of marine life and shipwrecks. The 90 villa ecofriendly resort has a dedicated Marine Biology Centre with an in-house marine biologist who collaborates with Manta Trust, the marine and conservation specialists. Guided diving and snorkelling boat trips are ready for experienced divers and a complete PADI 5* training center is available for beginners.
Wildlife lovers will be pleased to know that the island is a nesting site for green turtles and a breeding ground for Manta Rays. Manta Trust is tasked to preserve these natural habitats as well as to educate visitors on these beautiful yet engendered creatures. Whatever your pace of holiday, Hurawalhi Island
Resort's team is well prepared to deliver the best experiences across.
