Earth Day is everyday with Crown & Champa Resorts

April 22, 2020

With Crown & Champa Resorts,  Earth Day is everyday. Our teams are motivated to introduce sustainable approaches in day to day operations and to take measures to reduce the carbon foot print. Small steps bring about great changes. These are some of the initiatives we took in the past months;

  • Our properties replaced single-use plastic straws with bio-degradable versions. ⠀
  • Our resorts make use of solar energy with Kudadoo Maldives Private Island being fully-solar powered.
  • Plastic usage is reduced through using reusable water bottles instead of single-use plastic bottles. Further, we are switching to glass soft drink bottles, phasing out of using plastic PET bottles.
  • Wherever possible, food is sourced locally. Only fishermen with a proven record of sustainable practices are commissioned.
  • Toiletries provided in your villa and at the spa are from Healing Earth, a recognised industry leader adept at luxury green amenities. They are biodegradable, packaged in recycled glass and delivered in bulk.
  • Native and naturalized fauna is used across our properties for gardening.



Thank you to our CCR Community – A message from the CEO

April 6, 2020

We would like to begin with heartfelt thanks for the support received in these uncertain times. During the past weeks, across our collection of hotels and resorts, we have seen moments of heroism measured in the smallest acts of kindness and care that the team here at Crown & Champa Resorts (CCR) are so well known for. We are pleased all of our guests have arrived home to their loved ones safe and well.

We are assured that the decision to suspend operation in our properties is the correct one for the safety and wellbeing of all of our guests, team and wider community. At this time, we anticipate this to be necessary until the end of June, and we will continue to monitor the global travel restrictions and international travel advisories to guide us in our next steps.

As the situation unfolds, our team will embrace this temporary suspension of operation, and fast track planned renovations to our Resorts and provide time off to our team who greatly deserve the rest and recuperation. Be on the lookout for exciting new additions, soft and interesting structural updates we will be sharing online through the Resort and our Crown & Champa Resorts social media channels.

For the peace of mind for our guests whose travel plans have been disrupted and for those who need to rebook for future dates, we have made our booking policies flexible. Please read our Travel Flexibility Policy for guidance and information.

Whilst we cannot predict the time when travelling to the Maldives will be more than a dream; it is with individuals working together and following the guidelines of World Health Organization (WHO), directives of the Maldives government and Maldives Health Protection Agency (HPA), that we are confident we will be ready when you are to welcome you back to the Maldives soon.

Keep in good health, care for your loved ones, until we see you again.


Eco-Friendly Resorts for your Maldives Holiday

Energy and water are two resources often taken for granted but in recent years the environmental impact of their production has been highlighted prompting Crown & Champa Resorts to lead the way in balancing luxury tourism and sustainability with their eco-friendly Maldives offerings.

As the world comes together to switch off its lights on 28th March in celebration of Earth Hour, a global movement drawing attention to climate change, we take a look at how our Maldives’ resorts are taking a sustainable approach to their power needs.

One of the most important ingredients for a tropical holiday is sunny days and here in the Maldives, sunshine is in plentiful supply. Tapping into the power of the sun makes perfect environmental sense. Hurawalhi Island Resort, Kuredu Island Resort & Spa, Innahura Maldives Resort, Komandoo Island Resort & Spa and Meeru Island Resort & Spa all have solar panels in place to contribute towards their electricity requirements, whilst at Kudadoo Maldives Private Island by Hurawalhi, that commitment has been taken even further with the entire resort’s power needs are capable of being powered by its extensive solar panels.

Also marked this month is World Water Day, an initiative bringing to the fore the need to protect the World’s most valuable resource, water, and limiting the environmental impact of producing clean drinking water as the population grows. At CCR we are very proud to have water desalination and bottling plants at our resorts, which are able to supply all the guests’ and team members’ drinking water requirements. Water is supplied in reusable glass bottles, eliminating the need for single-use plastic bottles and associated disposal issues. In-house production also prevents the need for transporting water to our resort islands and therefore reduces our carbon footprint further.

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

Choose a Crown & Champa Resort for your eco-friendly Maldives holiday, resorts where luxury and sustainability go hand-in-hand.
