Love Valentine’s in the Maldives

The Maldives is the epitome of romance, the destination of dream honeymoon resorts and some of the most romantic hotels in the world. Couples escaping to any of the idyllic Crown and Champa Resorts this February will fall head over heels in love with the array of romantic indulgences with which to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Remember though, in the Maldives, every day is Valentine’s Day and love is celebrated throughout the year!

Love Maldives Resorts

Small, intimate resorts such as Veligandu Island Resort & Spa, Hurawalhi Island Resort & Spa and the adults-only Komandoo Island Resort & Spa, are custom-made for romance and couples will delight in the quiet and luxurious surroundings with service that is attentive yet discreet. Couples holidaying at the larger resorts of Kuredu Island Resort & Spa, Meeru Island Resort & Spa, Innahura Maldives Resort and Vilamendhoo Island Resort & Spa will not be disappointed when it comes to romantic things to do. There are many experiences and excursions tailored for love and plenty of quiet havens to be found around these stunning islands.

Love Romance

The Maldives has all the ingredients for a perfect romantic escape, no matter which resort you choose. From champagne breakfasts at your villa and candlelight dinners on the beach to indulgent couples’ massages at the spa and glorious sunsets sipping your favourite cocktail. Perhaps an exotic excursion to a deserted sandbank for the best day of your wildest dreams or a boat trip to spot dolphins, the choice is yours and, if a surprise treat is your plan, our resorts are experts in being discreet. Always dreamed of a beach wedding in paradise? Dreams come true in the Maldives with all of our resorts offering symbolic wedding ceremonies or exchange of vow events tailored to your requirements.

Love Yourself

Here at Crown and Champa Resorts, we believe in loving yourself too and whether your love is for the ocean, spa treatments or learning new things, a holiday is the perfect chance to take advantage of a little ‘me-time’. If you have a burning ambition to learn to dive or try a new water sport, seize the moment and sign up. Perhaps your own wellness needs to be pushed up the priority list? Join a yoga class, eat healthily from our sumptuous buffets and, above all, find time to relax in the beautiful surroundings.

Loving The Environment

The quintessential Maldives environment of pristine beaches, crystal clear lagoons, lush vegetation and a thriving coral reef ecosystem, coupled with luxury resorts, are the ingredients of a perfect holiday for many travellers. With environmental issues at the forefront of global concern, more and more people are citing eco-friendliness as a consideration when choosing a resort.

At Crown and Champa Resorts we place high importance on protecting the natural environment for future generations and constantly strive to reduce the impact our resorts have on the environment. As a testament to our sustainable approach, all our resorts have achieved the Travelife Gold Award. Travelife is dedicated to making holidays more sustainable and looks not only at the green choices resorts make but also the work they do with the local community.

The jewel in our sustainability crown is Kudadoo Maldives Private Island by Hurawalhi. Opened in December 2018, it was not only designed and built from sustainable materials, its operations are fully solar-powered. In a country where the sun shines almost every day, it makes environmental sense to harness its power and Hurawalhi Island Resort, Kuredu Island Resort & Spa, Innahura Maldives Resort and Meeru Island Resort & Spa are doing exactly that to meet some of their electricity requirements.

Our desalination and water bottling plants provide each of our resorts with all the water they need, served in re-useable glass bottles, it saves an immense amount of single-use plastic water bottles from entering the environment.

Each department in our resorts plays its part in sustainability: the laundry and housekeeping departments use eco-friendly detergents and re-useable linen bags for laundry collection, with drying taking place naturally. Food and beverage teams source ingredients locally where possible, to support the local community and reduce pollution-related to transporting goods further than necessary – our guests benefit directly from having fresh local produce on the menu. We have teams of gardeners planting trees on our islands and putting their green fingers to use in the greenhouses to grow fruit, vegetables and salad items on site. In the bars, guests will find only environmentally friendly straws when enjoying their drinks.

The marine environment is one of the Maldives’ greatest treasure and regular reef and lagoon clean-ups are organised to help look after the underwater world. Marine Biology Centres located at some of our resorts offer not only education to the rest of our team and guests, they also run sessions for local school children, oversee coral reef regeneration programs and research the populations of manta rays and sea turtles. Worldwide, mantas are listed as a vulnerable species and turtles are endangered, but here in the Maldives, we are very fortunate to have healthy populations of these fascinating marine creatures.

There are many more sustainable practices running through our resorts in the Maldives and they can be found in detail in our Sustainability Report.

If you love the Maldives and love the environment choose a Crown and Champa Resort for your next tropical escape.
