Outrigger Konotta Maldives joins worldwide cocktails programme to help coral reef conservation
Outrigger Konotta Maldives Resort has introduced a special cocktail as part of Outrigger Hotels & Resorts’ new worldwide cocktail programme in honour of World Oceans Month, with proceeds benefiting coral health and resiliency on a global and local level.
Being environmentally conscious is always on-trend. So, once PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral was chosen as the 2019 colour of the year, Outrigger knew it wanted to create a line-up of fun, flirty cocktail and mocktail offerings that harness the power of coral whilst also driving support for ocean health.
Kicking-off World Oceans Month this June through the year’s end, select on-property restaurants at Outrigger properties will be offering a unique selection of living coral-coloured cocktails, with proceeds benefitting various local non-profits that tie back to the OZONE mission.
In Maldives, Outrigger Konotta Maldives Beach Resort has introduced the Pink Grapefruit and Pomegranate Martini (with a splash of pomegranate juice and lime), a zesty cocktail straight from the crystals waters of the Konotta island.
In addition to enjoying coral-conscious cocktails by the beach, Outrigger invites guests to get in the OZONE mind-set by participating in unique conservation experiences that help preserve and protect the ocean’s coral. From simple actions such as local beach clean-ups and wearing reef-friendly sunscreen, to immersive activities that include planting coral nurseries at Outrigger Resorts in Fiji and snorkelling with a resident marine biologist at Outrigger in the Maldives, the hospitality brand encourages guests to become part of the solution, now more than ever.
“World Oceans Month calls attention to the vital role that the sea plays in our everyday lives; because it’s in Outrigger’s brand DNA to care for the planet year-round, our OZONE platform provides an opportunity for our guests and hosts to take an active role in fighting for the sustainable future of our oceans,” Monica Salter, Vice President of Corporate Communications for Outrigger Hospitality Group, was quoted in a statement, as saying.
“In addition to offering PANTONE colour of the year ‘Living Coral’ inspired cocktails this summer, our resort properties will continue providing enriching eco-activities, which protect our oceans from harm and help them to thrive for generations to come.”
As part of the 2019 OZONE programme, Outrigger has launched a new and impactful website –Outrigger.com/OZONE – where guests and eco-conscious consumers from around the world can learn about the brand’s conservation initiative, explore interesting facts about coral reefs and ultimately take an active role in fighting for the future of our oceans. Outrigger is also sporting a new “Living Coral” coloured OZONE logo through the end of 2019 to boost awareness of the importance of thriving coral reefs.
Located on iconic beaches in Hawaii, Thailand, Guam, Fiji, Mauritius and Maldives, Outrigger remains dedicated to marine preservation and works year-round on a range of initiatives to generate awareness for the cause, as well as create opportunities for guests to help support the conservation of our marine ecosystems. In celebration of World Oceans Month, each of Outrigger’s beachfront resort properties across the globe invite guests to get their hands wet and participate in an array of immersive OZONE activities and volunteer projects.
The private island of Konotta is located 340 kilometres to the south of capital Male, and is conveniently accessible via a 55-minute flight from the main Velana International Airport to Kaadedhdhoo Airport followed by a scenic 30-minute journey on a luxurious private yacht.
