Garden-fresh Goodness at Innahura Maldives Resort

Sustainable Vegetable Garden - Innahura Maldives Resort

Innahura Maldives Resort’s Sustainable Vegetable & Herb Garden

When one thinks of Innahura Maldives, the image of a laid-back resort surrounded by a beautiful lagoon and long stretches of the white, sandy beach comes to mind. 

This unpretentious gem of the pristine Lhaviyani Atoll, located just a 40-minute scenic seaplane journey from Velana International Airport, offers sun-seekers, the young, and the young-at-heart, a safe and relaxing Maldives getaway filled with ‘Here, Life is Easy’ moments. 

Sitting on a private, tropical island, Innahura Maldives has used the resort’s lush setting to its advantage to create its vegetable & herb garden, where a huge variety of vegetables, fruit, herbs, and spices are sustainably grown onsite.

Many of the kitchen’s ingredients – cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, Aubergine (eggplants), green peppers, radishes, alongside tropical fruit such as watermelons and bananas – commute less than 100 metres from the property’s thriving vegetable & herb garden.

Garden-fresh Goodness in Every Bite 

Vegetable & Herb Garden - Innahura Maldives Resort

Grown using natural fertilisers, the organic produce harvested from the 12m wide and 30m long sustainable garden is utilised by the talented chefs who use it to incorporate into the resort’s food and beverage outlets’ menus and plate up healthy dishes for guests and team members. 

The vegetable & herb garden is constantly evolving, with new varieties of seeds planted regularly. During the first harvest, the kitchen team garnered 110kg of watermelons, 48kg of cucumbers, 5kg of cherry tomatoes, 12kg of eggplants, 2kg of green peppers, and 1kg of radishes. 

Soon, the Innahura team will introduce a new experience for guests, where they can visit the garden, understand how fruit and vegetables are cultivated on the island, and how this initiative helps sustain and respect the natural environment.

Innahura Maldives Cares for the Planet

Innahura Maldives Resort

Sustainability lies at the core of Innahura’s values. The resort is committed to continuously finding ways to positively impact the environment and inspire guests, partners, and local communities. 

This eco-conscious endeavour comes off the back of several sustainable initiatives already implemented by the property. This is inclusive of solar huts that generate hot water for all the villas, the in-house desalination and water bottling plant, the continual strive to minimise the use of plastics, provision of ocean-friendly bathroom amenities, and ethically considerate diving and snorkelling.

Sea Turtle Hatching - Kagi Maldives Spa Island

123 Baby Sea Turtles Released in the Maldives

The wellbeing-focused Kagi Maldives Spa Island has celebrated the first turtle hatching of the season with 123 newly-born sea turtles.

Guests and team members gathered on the beach as the resort’s ‘Green’ team took the lead to carefully guide 123 Hawksbill hatchlings to their first journey to the ocean on Tuesday, 15 June 2021, one day before the WWF’s World Sea Turtle Day. 

Speaking about nature’s wonderful event, Kagi Maldives Spa Island’s Director of Operations, Mohammed Nazeer, said:

“We are fully committed to the protection and conservation of sea turtles in the Maldives, and we are privileged that mother turtles which instinctively travel thousands of miles choose our island resort as their nesting ground to lay their eggs on our beach. The hatching and release of these graceful creatures is truly a unique moment, and we are happy to share it with our guests and associates. There are currently three more nests on the island, and we hope to see the arrival of the hatchlings by the end of July.”

Crown & Champa Resorts Celebrates Ecosystem Restoration on World Environment Day 2021

June 1, 2021
World Environment Day - Crown & Champa Resorts Maldives

Celebrate World Environment Day 2021 with Crown & Champa Resorts Collection in the Maldives

Crown & Champa Resorts, the leading resort collection in the Maldives, will mark World Environment Day on 5 June 2021, with a range of awareness-raising activities and events to positively impact the environment and surrounding communities.

Celebrated in more than 100 countries globally, World Environment Day was first established in 1972 as the people’s day for doing something to take care of the planet. 

The theme for World Environment Day 2021 is ‘Ecosystem Restoration’ with a special focus on resetting our relationship with nature – an already ongoing and long-term sustainability effort of all the resorts under the collection. 

Crown & Champa Resorts Collection aims to raise awareness and educate associates, guests, and partners on ways to be more mindful of the natural surroundings by staging various planet-conscious activities supporting the UN initiative, which encourages worldwide consciousness and action for the protection of the environment.

Marine Life Protection

The Maldives’ first fully solar-powered Kudadoo Maldives Private Island and the naturally chic, adults-only Hurawalhi Island Resort continue to work closely with the Mantra Trust, the UK based, independent non-profit organisation whose mission is to advance the conservation of manta rays and their habitats. Guests are invited to take a private trip with the resident marine biologist and learn all about the conservation project, the manta ray ecology, and how to responsibly interact with these majestic creatures of the ocean. 

Gardening and Planting

Kagi Maldives Spa Island: The wellbeing-focused resort will carry out a tree planting event to be participated by both guests and team members. Planting more native trees around the island is an effective way to prevent erosion and help offset emissions of CO2 by storing carbon and other greenhouse gases that otherwise would be released.

Veligandu Island Resort & Spa: The secluded island of Veligandu is organising a coral planting initiative in partnership with the Ocean Group Maldives. The activity will start with harvesting broken pieces of corals from the island house reef, which will then be restored by carefully attaching them onto  ‘coral frames’. These frames allow the coral fragments to grow, providing new homes for the abundant marine life in Veligandu’s lagoon. 

Innahura Maldives Resort: The laid-back paradise of Innahura Maldives Resort will have a beach clean up activity, in addition to planting more crops in the property’s sustainable garden, which already produces a variety of spices, herbs, fruit, and vegetables. 

Beach and Island Clean-up 

The adults-only (18+) Komandoo Island Resort & Spa and the top-rated Kuredu Island Resort & Spa will invite team members and guests for a beach and island clean-up drive. Guests are also encouraged to visit Prodivers Maldives Dive Centre to learn more about the Olive Ridley Project, whose dedication is to protect sea turtles in the Indian Ocean through research, education, and rehabilitation. 

Environmental Awareness

Meeru Island Resort & Spa: The family-friendly paradise of Meeru is organising an environmental awareness session in collaboration with Euro-Divers Maldives to educate guests about green issues, the benefits of being sustainably conscious, and the importance of protecting the world’s natural resources. 

Vilamendhoo Island Resort & Spa: Alongside the island clean-up event, the adventurer’s paradise of Vilamendhoo Island Resort & Spa will show educational video materials in the reception area and on guest room TVs to provide guests with valuable information on dos and don’ts on the island and in the sea. Additionally, guests will have the opportunity to experience ecologically considerate marine life encounters by joining one of the resort’s eco-conscious excursions.
