Top 05 Eco-Friendly Resorts in Maldives – For the earth lovers

The Maldives might seem all about sunshine, sandy shores, clear waters rich in marine life, and blissful luxury. Indeed, it is all about the above and much more. Most resorts on the island adore the environment and take steps to contribute to its conservation using their own methods. Here are a few outstanding resorts that have gone green.


Reethi Faru Resort

Apart from the range of fantastic villas, Reethi Faru Resort offers travellers, they are also on top when it comes to being an eco-resort in Maldives. Firstly, on this resort's island, energy conservation is key. Solar panels have been installed so that the villas are powered through the grid. They have also taken the initiative back in 2019 to eliminate the one-time use of plastic. Now, glass bottles are used instead. The resort even has its own recycling plant for paper, plastics, horticulture, glass, and styrofoam. Another extremely unique fact about this resort is that it has a biogas plant too where food waste is converted into renewable gas. The by-products of the gas produced are used in the in-house cultivation of mushrooms too.


Baros Maldives

Yes, this resort is absolutely beautiful and yes, they are eco-friendly too. Thus, it comes as no surprise that nature rewards the island with rich marine life and wonderful weather. The property focuses on water purification for irrigation in order to maintain its well-manicured gardens. Furthermore, energy consumption is minimised with the use of LED lights in villas, restaurants, and every part of the property. Baros Maldives also uses a special water heating system that does not harm the environment and not to mention CFC-free air-conditioning. All cleaning products used here are biodegradable too.


Coco Palm Dhuni Kolhu

This resort focuses on the protection of the cute sea turtles that happen to roam the waters here. Coco Palm Dhuni Kolhu provides a safe nesting ground for these turtles in collaboration with the Olive Ridley Project. Turtle release programs are held here too and the resort even has an on-site vet to help rescue injured turtles and release them back into the ocean once they are all better. In addition to this, measures have been taken to recycle waste, a glass bottle plant has been established as well as drinkable water production.


Soneva Fushi

It’s the barefoot lifestyle here at Soneva Fushi and everything is just “chill”. The resort though has taken an amazing interest in the conservation of the environment. They’ve installed a system that allows rainwater to collect and be purified for use on the island. Waste on the island is recycled and even a composting procedure has been set in place to make sure that waste is put to good use on the island.


Taj Exotica Resort & Spa Maldives

Apart from being luxury, this resort in Maldives works on a project called EARTH which stands for Environment Awareness and Renewal at Taj Hotels. This includes a rainwater catchment system so that rainwater can be purified and used. It also includes a special water heating system. But what’s more unique about it is the coral conservation project where guests can sponsor the creation of their very own little coral reef.
