The programme will take place from April 4-15, 2023 at the wellness oasis of The Westin Maldives Miriandhoo Resort, and will consist of a curated schedule of two 45-minute sessions per day spread over the two weeks, incorporating behavioural psychology, design thinking, and embodiment arts to empower guests to pursue their well-being through interactive workshops within the 3 realms of the Self, Skills & Relationships, to rejuvenate the mind, body and spirit. 

The Westin Maldives Miriandhoo Resort, located in Baa Atoll, the first UNESCO Biosphere Reserve in the Maldives, is positioned as an immersive destination for travellers to feel rejuvenated and refreshed, resonating the Six Pillars of Well-Being: Feel Well, Work Well, Move Well, Eat Well, Sleep Well and Play Well. Through interactive workshops and activities, the collaboration with Wenlin Tan aims to activate the pillars of Move Well and Feel Well and is designed to inspire empowerment and help attendees pursue their well-being. With Wenlin Tan’s expertise in mindfulness practices and Luca Dellanna’s behavioral consulting experience, set against the backdrop of the Indian Ocean, guests at The Westin Maldives Miriandhoo Resort can look forward to a boost of relaxation and rejuvenation, leaving them refreshed and full of energy as they leave the resort.

Participants can expect a range of activities around self-growth, creative mindfulness, embodied movement, and women-centric workshops, crafted along the pillars of Be, Become, and Belong. Under the Be category, participants can experience the fluid flow aqua Qigong yoga workshops, a low-impact, gentle and enjoyable form of yoga, aimed at cultivating fluidity, flow, and surrender, and alleviating work-related back pain or spinal mobility issues.

Hurawalhi Island Resort’s Exemplary Commitment to Marine Conservation Shines in the Maldives

Published

on

Hurawalhi Island Resort, nestled amidst the stunning landscapes of the Maldives, proudly reaffirms  its steadfast dedication to marine conservation through pioneering initiatives aimed at  safeguarding the region’s diverse marine ecosystems. 

Saoirse Macklin, the esteemed Resident Marine Biologist at Hurawalhi Island Resort, emphasizes  the Maldives’ distinguished status as one of the world’s most biodiverse marine environments. “At  Hurawalhi, we prioritize the dissemination of knowledge and wonder about our marine world,”  states Macklin. “As a Marine Biologist, it’s been a privilege to inspire and educate guests about the  remarkable marine life surrounding our island.” 

Hurawalhi’s commitment to marine conservation materializes through a range of educational  experiences offered to guests. From immersive Turtle Tours, shedding light on the pivotal role of  seagrass in sustaining turtle populations, to awe-inspiring Manta Search excursions, each journey  represents an enlightening voyage of discovery. 

During these excursions, science and education take precedence, ensuring guests acquire profound  insights into the intricate ecosystems enveloping the island. As the resident Marine Biologist,  Macklin spearheads efforts to monitor and safeguard turtle and manta populations, employing  cutting-edge photo identification techniques to meticulously track and document individual  specimens during every expedition. 

Hurawalhi extends a warm invitation to guests to partake in Marine Biologist-guided reef  snorkeling experiences, providing an unparalleled opportunity to explore coral reef and seagrass  ecosystems while championing their preservation. Participants not only revel in the splendor of the  house reef but also actively engage in efforts to protect these delicate habitats. 

Furthermore, Hurawalhi’s commitment to marine conservation is evident in its ongoing projects.  The resort’s diligent monitoring and maintenance of its artificial reef program adjacent to the  iconic 5.8 Underwater Restaurant aim to rejuvenate and revitalize reef systems. In 2021, a total of  114 artificial reef frames were transplanted, laying the groundwork for reef regeneration. 

Recent initiatives include the creation of “festive frames,” crafted by guests during the holiday  season, with regular updates fostering continued guest involvement in conservation endeavors.  Annual monitoring of benthic habitats and species abundance by the Marine Biologist team is  pivotal, collecting data to track changes in habitats and biodiversity over time. This scientific  endeavor provides valuable insights into the health of Hurawalhi’s marine life and serves as a  cornerstone for future conservation efforts. 

The data collected holds immense potential, serving as a catalyst for initiatives aimed at securing  protected status for Hurawalhi and its surrounding waters. Through collaboration with  government-led conservation programs and local stakeholders, the resort aspires to designate  Hurawalhi as a protected area, ensuring its continued vitality and resilience.

In the face of unprecedented challenges to ocean conservation, Hurawalhi remains resolute in its  mission to preserve and protect the marine marvels of the Maldives. Through collective  understanding and concerted action, the resort endeavors to safeguard these invaluable ecosystems  for generations to come.
