On World Environment Day, June 5, 2017, each of our Resorts offered special activities and excursions for guests to participate in, as they create awareness and show support for the annually celebrated event.

 

With 60% of Hurawalhi Island Resort powered by solar panels, the Eco-friendly Resort had a special afternoon event for snorkelers. The excursion included a presentation by Lisa Bauer, the resident Marine Biologist, snorkeling on a coral reef and a visit to an uninhabited island for a beach cleanup.

 

Guests of all ages enjoyed participating in our child-friendly Resorts’ greener efforts. Kuredu Island Resort & Spa hosted a house reef and lagoon cleanup event, as guests and team members alike showed their commitment to a clean environment. Meeru Island Resort & Spa held a tree-planting event to anchor the support of an environmentally sustainable Maldives and Vilamendhoo Island Resort & Spa organized two interactive events to support environmental consciousness.

 

This year’s theme ‘Connect with Nature’ can be celebrated at any time of the year at our adults-only Resorts, Komandoo Island Resort & Spa and Veligandu Island Resort & Spa. The combination of soft, white sandy beaches, palm tree views and tropical landscape make these the perfect Maldives getaway. Our Champa Central Hotel, located in the center of Male’ city, offers day trips to local islands in the Maldives. Whether you are in transit or on a business stay, take some time to reconnect with our beautiful environment.

 

Crown & Champa Resorts is committed towards preserving the Maldives and global environment through sustainable operations and various green initiatives. These initiatives include alternative sources of energy; water-bottling plants to reduce plastic consumption; food and water recycling facilities; a collection of greenhouses and desalination systems; and frequent island, reef and lagoon cleaning projects.
