Using solar panels, its own water bottling plant, energy saving solutions, hot water recovery and an in-house marine biologist, Hurawalhi’s eco credentials are the finest in the Maldives. In addition, Hurawalhi is collaborating with Manta Trust, the marine conservation and education specialists. Manta Trust is teaming up with Hurawalhi’s own in-house 5* PADI Instructors to provide educational guided dives and snorkelling through the spectacular nearby reefs and shipwrecks. The island is a nesting site for Green Turtles and a breeding ground for Manta Rays and Manta Trust is tasked with preserving this natural habitat as well as educating visitors on these beautiful and endangered creatures.
