RECONNECT WITH NATURE
Built on an ethos of positive environmental impact, Fairmont Maldives Sirru Fen Fushi enables eco-conscious travellers to reconnect with the surrounding nature while also protecting and preserving it. Home to the world’s first and only coral regeneration project in the form of an underwater art installation, the Coralarium, Fairmont Maldives recently launched the Turtle Ranger programme. Budding marine biologists can learn how to track critically endangered Hawksbill Turtles from the resort’s very own Resident Marine Biologist, Sam Dixon, who spearheads the island’s environmental projects. Sam oversees the children release hatchlings into the ocean, care for nests, plant crucial new coral and snorkel one of the most biodiverse reefs in the world.
Ready in time for the festive, Fairmont Maldives will be the first Maldivian resort to host a Sustainability Lab. A hub of eco-education, the Sustainability Lab will turn plastic waste into bespoke souvenirs and unique products, educate guests and empower local communities, helping the resort achieve its goal of being the first zero waste generating resort in the Maldives and becoming the main recycling centre in the North Malé region.
Boasting some of the world’s most pristine beaches and mesmerising marine life, Fairmont Maldives provides guests with a vibrant setting for a wealth of adrenaline-filled activities: from canoeing the lagoon to paddle boarding, from jetski to kayak, recharge and boost your mood with a menu of water-based, upskilling experiences. Intrepid guests can go on exciting diving and snorkelling excursions, exploring the 9km house reef and crystal-clear lagoon (seasonal activity). Only a short boat ride away from the beach, they will be enchanted by manta ray cleaning stations – where gliding rays stop to be cleaned by tiny fish – swim with guitar sharks and reef sharks while rubbing shoulders with the 40 resident turtles and a variety of vibrant reef fish.
REDISCOVER YOUR ZEST FOR LIFE
Thanks to the extraordinary, once-in-a-lifetime experiences available at Fairmont Maldives, this festive season will be all about creating life-long memories. Families can enjoy their favourite movies under the stars with a pop-up cinema experience at the Tented Jungle Villas – safari-style lodgings in the heart of the island’s jungle – or rekindle with their other half at the tranquil Willow Stream Spa.
Epicureans can feast on the mouth-watering creations of three passionate visiting chefs. Decorated with two Michelin stars, chef Mickael Viljanen will take over AZURE restaurant from 29th December to 3rd of January and serve up a 6-course tasting menu inspired by his awarded Dublin restaurant; the Greenhouse. Acclaimed chef Alexandre Demard will bring to the island famed French delights, including his signature Onion Soup, topped with savoury foamy cream, while diners at Onu Onu can taste the Thai-Balinese aromatic dishes of top female chef, Sojinda Tongtawin.
Culture vultures interested in discovering the local way of life can do so with carefully curated experiences by Fairmont Maldives. Join the team for a fishing expedition as the sun disappears behind the water or hop aboard a boat with a picnic basket and snorkel-mask in hand, sailing to a deserted island for an otherworldly sandbank picnic. Socially conscious travellers can visit one of the nearby inhabited islands and meet the local community to learn about their culture and experience their way of life (subject to local regulations).
To welcome 2022 in style, the resort will host a tropical-chic masquerade party featuring music from the talented ABBA Tribute Band and a whole host of other sensational acts. A spectacular firework show will light up the beautiful Maldivian sky as the clock turns to midnight.
