Amilla Fushi Resort is about to embark on an exciting new journey of sustainability. Please bear with us as we have only just begun, although we have big plans in store over the coming months...Our newly-created sustainability programmes will include extensive organic gardens with a focus on superfoods, such as moringa and purslane. This will help us achieve one of our aims here at Amilla Fushi - to enhance your stay by providing a variety of homegrown and homemade products that promote wellness.
As we're lucky enough to live in the stunning Baa Atoll UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve, we are committed to marine conservation. As such, we're striving to reduce all single-use plastics (that can end up in the ocean and harm marine-life) and to work in harmony with the natural bounty of the area. We have a water bottling plant on the island to provide our guests and Amilla Islanders with pure water; negating the need for plastic bottles. Just one of the ways we're doing our bit for the environment.
A GLASS HALF FULL
Our water bottling plant at Amilla Fushi provides our guests with still and sparkling water. This enriched Reverse Osmosis Water is bottled daily into reusable glass bottles at our sterile plant. We say "NO" to plastic water bottles!
Another way Amilla Fushi is working on reduce packaging is to make our own products in-house. Highlights include natural drinks and wellness beverages such as ginger beer and kombucha packed with probiotics.
Join us on our journey to produce zero air-mile fruits, vegetables and herbs. Amilla Fushi is uniquely blessed with lush vegetation that over the years has produced fertile soil for us to grow plants in.
A SHORT STRAW
As part of our commitment to protecting the marine environment both surrounding Amilla Fushi and in the wider region, we have removed all plastic straws from the resort and replaced them with paper straws.
Another initiative that reduces packaging at Amilla Fushi is our refillable pump bottles for soap and shampoo in the villas. This means fewer plastic bottles will end up in landfills or the ocean. Our team also refills their own bottles at our staff shop, further reducing waste.
Our five-star diving and water-sports partner, Dive Butler International, not only caters to all your diving needs but also is working on a coral-planting project in the area to help regenerate any damage to the beautiful reefs.
Technical and Vocational Education Center (TVEC) is a vocational training institute established in 2017 by the Coastline Foundation. Established in B. Kihaadhoo, spanning over an area of about 5 acres, TVEC is the first and one of its kind institute in the Maldives with training programmes including trade specific and personal development programmes conducted in a unique live-in learning community.
PARLEY FOR THE OCEANS
Parley for the Oceans addresses major threats towards our oceans, the most important ecosystem of our planet.
Parley believes the power for change lies in the hands of the consumer – given he has a choice – and the power to shape this new consumer mindset lies in the hands of the creative industries.
Amilla Fushi in partnership with Parley, has implemented a strategy to no longer purchase single-use plastic bottles, rather converting to reusable glass bottles, as well as limiting plastic usage throughout the resort. We value how important it is that we look after our oceans and are proud to be part of the solution. Please join us in contributing to a plastic-free world where we aim to reduce pollution and look after our planet!
