Noku Maldives launches #SayYesToReusable campaign
Noku Maldives has launched a campaign aimed at encouraging people to go for reusable options.
The #SayYesToReusable campaign kicked off last week, with the first batch of eco-bags being handed over to Speaker Mohamed Nasheed and Deputy Speaker Eva Abdulla. Ahmed Easa, member of parliament for Kendhikulhudhoo constituency, represented the resort.
It’s my honour and privilege to be part of Noku Maldives Resort Reusable initiative. They are giving away their very first design of reusable bag to Deputy Speaker of Parliament Ms Eva Abdulla,” MP Easa said on Twitter.
“I hope this initiative will spread awareness amongst all islands in N. Atoll.”
Launched as part of Noku Maldives’ continued efforts towards social sustainability and environmental conservation, the campaign sees distribution of reusable eco-bags throughout the resort’s native Noonu atoll.
The resort will continue to educate its associates, guests and communities around the areas it operates, about the need to consider the five Rs of responsible consumption – Reduce, Refuse, Reuse, Recycle and Remove. This is achieved by driving events such as community awareness sessions and cleanups, guest talks on property and supporting international events such as Earth Day, World Cleanup Day and World Environment Day.
Located on the island of Kuda Funafaru in the northern Noonu atoll, Noku Maldives is accessible by a scenic 45-minute seaplane flight from the main Velana International Airport.
Nestled amidst luscious tropical greenery and enveloped by a peaceful blue lagoon are 20 beach villas and 30 overwater villas. Each spacious unit is designed to offer utmost privacy and fitted with modern amenities to provide comfort. The refined elegance of each villa with its soft white hues and dark wood accents complement the beauty of nature seen through large bay windows and french doors.
The spacious beachfront Palms Restaurant serves up à la carte and buffet-style dining, while the menu of Thari Restaurant features elements of Thai, Japanese and Singaporean cuisine — flavourful tastes of the countries where Noku hotels are located in. The Palms Bar allows guests to indulge in refreshing cocktails that blend Eastern and Western influences. Guests can also have a thirst quenching beverage from the Thari Bar and lounge at the large main pool area.
Embracing nature is an integral aspect of the wellness programme at Noku Maldives. Rejuvenation begins with a beautiful garden walkway leading up to six double treatment suites with a relaxing view of the ocean. Each treatment room is thoughtfully designed as a sanctuary where stone and wooden accents achieve a deep sense of calm and relaxation. The wellness treatments use natural ingredients to enhance total wellbeing.
The pristine location of Noku Maldives houses a thriving marine ecosystem that includes dolphins, rays and populous fish diversity. Professional dive instructors at the resort’s dive centre will show guests the rich diversity of marine life suitable for all levels of experiences. Guests can also catch the light ocean breeze on a chartered catamaran, or feel the adrenaline rush while riding the waves on a jet ski or windsurfing activities.
