This award is very meaningful, not only because it was the first time that the Maldives received this cob in competition with 22 other major destinations, but above all because it is also recognition of the great efforts made by the whole Maldivian tourism sector – public and private – for the reopening of the destination after the blockade caused by the pandemic.

Today the Maldives are a relatively safe destination and a safe haven for visitors, thanks also to the “one island-one resort” concept. In fact, the whole world of tourism was constantly informed about the security measures and the important procedures in place for tourists, which arrived with the reopening of the borders on 15 July 2020.

Production will become increasingly important so that we can delight our next guests with delicious fresh salads and genuine jams.

In the meantime, what will be produced from our garden will be distributed to the staff, which is increasingly specializing in this local cultivation technique.

The island is also full of coconut palms that grow spontaneously, and this will allow us to extract a natural coconut essential oil that can be used inside our Spa by Clarins.

This project is part of a larger project by the Cenizaro Group which will see all the Resorts committed to improving the quality of the environment around us, also according the recent 50th Anniversary of Earth Day just celebrated in April.

Important “green” measures implemented by The Residence Maldives Falhumaafushi and The Residence Maldives Dhigurah to safeguard the environment, reduce emissions and waste materials

The motto of “going green” The Residence Maldives Falhumaafushi and The Residence Maldives Dhigurah have given a decidedly more ecological turn within their prestigious 5-star facilities located in the most beautiful and unspoiled corners of the Maldivian archipelago.

Always attentive and sensitive to environmental issues, The Residence Maldives by Cenizaro Resorts have decided to pursue this new ecological challenge with a series of small but significant measures to limit the impact of emissions of anhydride carbon and the production of waste materials that are harmful to nature.

As part of these initiatives, The Residence Maldives Falhumaafushi and the new born The Residence Maldives Dhigurah have installed a water bottling plant, replacing plastic bottles with more eco-friendly glass bottles. Pervasive pollution from plastics, especially at sea, is the second environmental emergency after climate change and the two problems are closely related.

In this way, not only will the use of plastic in resorts be reduced, but also carbon emissions as it will no longer be necessary to transport water bottles to the structures. Each villa will be daily and free of charge with 3 1-liter bottles of natural glass water. Both natural and sparkling water options, even in smaller 500ml bottles, are available at various resort eateries.

 

This represents a further step that adds to the anti-ocean pollution policy of the oceans and the deleterious effects it has on coral reefs and on the survival of mammals and filter fish such as whales and manta rays, as well as on dolphins and many species of seabirds. In fact The Residence Maldives Fhalumaafushi and The Residence Maldivest Dhigurah have already considerably reduced the use of plastic, replacing the classic plastic straws with those of paper, take away food containers with appropriate aluminum boxes and wooden pallets for cocktails and drinks took the place of plastic ones.
