Villa Hotels – one of the leading resort collections in the Maldives, is recognized in the community for its successful and inspiring dedication towards environmental protection and ocean preservation. The team of Villa Hotels and Resorts believe in the power of change and raising awareness for the coming generations.
As part of the journey towards achieving a sustainable environment, Villa Hotels and Resorts in partnership with Parley for the Oceans – donates all sorts of plastic accumulated in the chain for recycling purposes. Parley for the Oceans is an organization that advocates for the major threats towards oceans and fights for environmental protection by heading recycling initiatives and global projects.
Another great feat achieved by the Villa collection, is the introduction of reusable glass bottles throughout the resorts in an effort to eliminate plastic completely from the islands in the near future. Additionally, the dive centers at Royal Island Resort & Spa, Paradise Island Resort & Spa and Sun Island are proud paperless advocates. All three of the resorts provides their guests with all training materials and administration form digitally.
Ocean and beach cleanups are a regular occurrence at Villa Resorts. This month around the team of Villa and their guests are determined to take part in a major cleanup at a sandbank located near Royal Island Resort & Spa. Coming together to remove plastic and debris from the inhabitant island and the surrounding lagoon will surely create an opportunity to re-connect with nature and encourage many a lot to take care of the fragile environment which we all call home.
