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-life 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.

Weather In The Maldives & Diving

Located close to the equator, the Maldives is sunny and balmy year-round with day air temperature to vary between 27°C/80°F to 30°C/86°F. Water temperature is fairly constant at a balmy 24°C/75°F to 30°C/86°F.

The north-east monsoon, typically running from November through to April is characterised by clear skies and sunshine with January to April bring great visibility for diving and snorkelling. The south-western monsoon typically occurring May to October can bring less settled weather, but there is plenty of sunshine to be enjoyed.  The monsoon also causes a plankton bloom in the water,  which results in reduced water visibility yet however is a huge advantage for divers as manta rays and whale sharks come to feed on the plankton.

Due to the size of the Maldives, its climate is also subject to conditions elsewhere in Asia, there are many weather variations among the atolls and weather forecasting apps tend to be inaccurate, especially during the south-west monsoon when the resort conditions are often much better than shown.

SuperMoose_NL from the Netherlands rated Komandoo Island Resort & Spa 5-stars and wrote the island is a “A safe h(e)aven” on TripAdvisor. This seasoned traveler and 7-time repeater to the island wrote a 1800 word review explains the full experience from the arrival to the departure. SuperMoose_NL further wrote

“In short, I can honestly say that Komandoo felt like a safe haven from the pandemic. You definitely do notice that there’s a ‘new normal’, due to the preventive measures that the island have in place to ensure everyones safety, but I always felt much safer than I do at home in Europe and would not hesitate to return.”

Guest Ms Jennifer L. from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA wrote a heartfelt 5-star Tripadvisor review on Sep 16, 2020 left us a Smiling Face with Heart-Eyes emoji.

“My husband and I had an excellent and very unique experience at Veligandu amid COVID-19. We hope to come back to paradise soon! I’d like to first mention that we were impressed with the safety measures put in place throughout the resort – hand sanitizing stations, staff wearing masks and social distancing measures during dining – we felt safe our entire stay. They check your temperature every morning, FYI. I say we had a unique experience because there were only a handful of couples on the resort during our 11 night stay. It felt like we had the entire island to ourselves and the service was impeccable! We will miss Naaem, Akram, Abdulla, Naail, Adam, Rifau, Alex and all the wonderful staff at Veligandu.”

Ms. Julie Antju5, Gainsborough, United Kingdom wrote on TripAdvisor after her stay in Hurawalhi Island Maldives

“A truly relaxing, 5 star holiday never to be forgotten. Snorkelling and diving top class. 5.8 underwater restaurant not to be missed. Covid precautions in place far superior to any western countries. Feel safer here than the UK! Thank you for a perfect holiday.”
