Kuramathi Maldives takes part in Make Holidays Greener campaign with reef cleanup dive
Kuramathi Maldives has participated in the global Make Holidays Greener campaign by organising a reef cleanup dive.
Staff members and guests took a 45-minute dive to the house reef Saturday morning and collected garbage lying on the seabed. Amongst those collected are the exterior of an air conditioning unit and a marble tile.
“Celebration was then made with a toast to fresh coconuts at the dive school in a joyous fashion,” the resort said, in a statement.
Make Holidays Greener is UK-based ABTA’s annual campaign in partnership with Travelife for Hotels and Accommodations to encourage travellers to take positive social and environmental actions while on holiday. The campaign is aimed at encouraging everyone to contribute to ensure that their chosen destination is preserved for years to come.
Kuramathi is one of the first resorts to open in the Maldives and is part of Universal Resorts of Universal Enterprises, a 100 percent Maldivian company and the pioneers of tourism in the Maldives.
An emerald jewel in the turquoise Maldivian waters, Kuramathi is a stunning island retreat with acres of luxuriant vegetation surrounded by spectacular beaches tapering into an endless sandbank. Villas blend contemporary design and nature, and are set on the beach, amongst lush gardens or over water. Four poster beds, open-air bathrooms, rainfall showers or Jacuzzi, large outdoor decks with inviting daybeds or sun loungers, are just some of the creature-comforts enjoyed by guests. Dining options are diverse with many restaurants, bars and great-value all-inclusive packages, topped off with Maldivian service – welcoming, genuine and friendly.
