When to Visit Maldives in 2020

January 16, 2020
Innahura Swimming Pool Aerial1_1080x625

If you’re planning a trip to the Maldives in 2020 and want to know when to visit, we’ve got good news… Maldives is a year-round holiday destination! With temperatures sitting at around 30°C, the equatorial sun shining almost every day and just enough rain to keep the palm trees green and vegetation lush, this is the idyllic tropical destination.

Two main monsoons govern the weather patterns of the Maldives and split the year into the low and high seasons.  The North-east Monsoon brings the high season with it and runs from November to April. At this time of year, the weather is usually great with long hours of sunshine, flat, mirror-like seas and great underwater visibility. This is the busiest time but, unlike other destinations, the beaches aren’t crowded and you’ll always be able to find peace and solitude.

The South-west Monsoon is from May to October, the Maldives’ low season, and you can experience less settled weather with a higher scattering of clouds, some rain but still a lot of sunshine. The underwater visibility can be reduced by higher levels of plankton and, for marine life enthusiasts, this is a cause for great celebration as the plankton-rich waters bring the gentle giants of the ocean – whale sharks and manta rays as well as an even greater abundance of fish. Lower prices make this a great value time to enjoy this dream destination.

As you look forward to your holiday, don’t worry about checking the weather – due to the vast area over which the Maldives is spread, and micro-climates varying even from one island to the next weather forecasts are unreliable; instead, visit the resort’s website and start planning the adventures you will have. There is a holiday of a lifetime awaiting you at Crown and Champa Resorts, all year round.

Sustainability in the Maldives

March 31, 2021
Sustainable Resorts - Crown & Champa Resorts Collection Maldives

Sustainable Resorts in the Maldives

The Maldives is truly one of the world’s maritime treasures that prospers in a beautiful yet fragile environment. At Crown & Champa Resorts, we are committed to raise awareness and educate both our associates and guests on ways to be more mindful of the natural environment. We are not only aware of global environmental issues, but we also acknowledge our impact and responsibility towards our planet  for the present and future generations. 

We believe that taking care of the environment is a collective responsibility, and now more than ever,  each of us must take action to help protect and conserve our shared home. Here are various sustainable efforts our Maldives resorts are implementing  while providing exceptional holiday experiences to our guests.

Energy Management

Harnessing the sun

Hurawalhi Maldives Solar Panel

Opened in December 2018, the ultra-luxury Kudadoo Private Island was not only designed and built from all-natural materials, but its operations run entirely on solar power. The resort’s central hub, known as The Retreat,  houses an exclusive spa and wellness centre and features a photovoltaic roof covered with almost a thousand solar panels, which generate 300kW of electricity.

The five-star Hurawalhi Island Resort, the adults-only Komandoo Island Resort, the vibrant Kuredu Island Resort and the affordable Innahura Maldives Resort have also installed solar panels to harness energy from the sun, which translates to a massive reduction in carbon emissions.

The secluded island paradise of Veligandu Maldives has implemented efficient lighting in villas and public areas, with about 97% of its light bulbs replaced with energy-saving LED lamps. In addition, it has a desalinisation plant that allows the resort to produce its own potable water, about 164,980 litres daily, for guest and staff consumption.

The family-friendly Kuredu Island Resort proudly displays colourful, electric-powered scooters and shuttle club cars available for its staff and guests’ use to minimise the impact on air pollution.

Waste Management 

Sustainable Glass Water Bottles @ Kuredu Island Resort & Spa Maldives

Greener measures have been put in place at our resorts to decrease single-use plastics that can end up in the ocean and harm delicate marine life. All our resorts have replaced plastic water bottles with reusable glass ones and use special linen bags instead of non-biodegradable plastic. Additionally, plastic straws have successfully been removed from our restaurants and bars, providing guests with eco-friendly alternatives.

Our properties are taking numerous ways to prevent plastic waste, including lesser-known and not on-trend endeavours such as:

  • our buffet restaurants offer dispensers instead of individually-portioned butter in plastic containers
  •  carbonated drink glass bottles are now used in minibars, allowing us to decrease plastic usage
  • toiletries provided in our villas and spas are from Healing Eartha world-renowned industry leader for luxury amenities that are organic and biodegradable. 

Marine Life Conservation

Coral Garden Maldives

Kagi Maldives Spa Island, the Maldives’ only resort for relaxed luxury and lifestyle retreats, has established a coral nursery program where currently 15 coral fragments are growing in a well-monitored environment, which will be transported and secured back onto the reef in the future.

The famed dive resort of Vilamendhoo Maldives in the South Ari Atoll offers eco-conscious diving and snorkelling excursions that provide guests with a once-in-a-lifetime experience while educating them on the importance of protecting the marine ecosystem, including every creature living in it.

Many of our properties are also working closely with the Manta Trusta UK based, independent non-profit organisation whose mission is to advance the conservation of manta rays and their habitat, and the Olive Ridley Project, whose dedication is to protect sea turtles in the Indian Ocean through research, education, and rehabilitation.

Sustainable Supplies 

The Sustainable Meeru Island Resort

Meeru Island Resort & Spa, one of the Maldives’ most expansive resort islands, features ‘Meeru Garden’. The sustainable garden was developed to meet the needs of its day-to-day kitchen operations and provide guests and associates with fresh ingredients and organic produce. Guests can also join the ‘Nature and Vegetation Exploration’ tour, providing them with information on how the resort manages to grow fruit and vegetables on the island and preserve the natural surroundings.

Komandoo Island Resort, the leading adults-only resort in the Maldives, sources fish directly from the neighbouring islands’ fishermen. As such, the resort is able to support the livelihood of these local fishers and contribute to the local economy.

Local Community Engagement 

Bodu Beru Maldives - Crown & Champa Resorts

Our commitment goes beyond just environmental sustainability. We aim to create value for local communities by empowering them through job creation, education and community impact initiatives. Throughout the year, we participate in various social activities within our communities, including blood donation drives, island reef and lagoon clean-ups, fundraising, and local sports events. Occasionally, we bring in local artisans to our resorts, where they can have the opportunity to showcase their craft and promote local culture and heritage.

Choose Crown & Champa Resorts for your Holiday in the Maldives 

We are the leading hospitality group in the Republic of Maldives that takes pride in being a good corporate citizen by being part of the local community and culture. We are committed to preserving the environment through sustainable operations, guided by our core values: Respect, Empathy, Sincerity, Openness, Reliability, Trust and Sensitivity.
