Anantara Maldives Creates A Unique Christmas Tree
Maldives Promotion House – For this Christman Anantara Maldives has flipped on a whole new creativity trigger. It’s not just a rock, it’s not just a tree, but an eco-friendly coral Christmas tree under the sea.
Anantara Kihavah Villas in the Maldives’ UNESCO Marine Biosphere Baa Atoll region has taken its unique coral adoption initiative to new festive depths with the creation of an underwater Christmas tree made entirely from reef coral collected from the seabed.
Diners at the exclusive island resort’s Sea Restaurant, one of the few underwater restaurants in the world, can view the Christmas tree display along with striped lionfish, moray eel and eagle rays while savouring the Indian Ocean’s abundance of marine life.
In its commitment to protect the environment, Anantara Kihavah Villas initiated the Coral Adoption Programme, a long-term plan designed to share learning experiences with guests, accelerate the regeneration of coral growth in the atoll reefs, and ultimately ensure the future of this unique Maldivian destination.
Guests can participate in reef creation and contribute to the on-going conservation effort by adopting a coral frame and transplanting coral onto the frame with the help of the resort’s resident Marine Biologist. A dedicated website allows guests to monitor the growth of their adopted coral.
