Meet Our Sustainability Manager
Amilla Maldives has created the new position of Sustainability Manager, underscoring our new focus on becoming more eco-friendly. We’re delighted to announce Victoria Kruse will be guiding our vision for making Amilla a leader in sustainable tourism in the Maldives. Victoria is already proving to be an invaluable asset in driving and developing an ambitious new programme.
Victoria, who was based at Kurumba Maldives for many years, returned to the Maldives in October 2019 after two and a half years at Six Senses Fiji, where she was responsible for running the Wellness Kitchen. During her time in Fiji, Victoria developed a range of homemade bitters, probiotic drinks, and tonic waters, as well as gluten-free and keto menus.
Under Victoria’s guidance at Amilla, we’ll be rolling out for the first time ever some exciting new sustainability initiatives. Our goal is to make our island genuinely more eco-conscious by thinking outside the box.
It will include offering guests enhanced wellness options, such as the introduction of a ‘Living Cocktail Menu’ (probiotic beverages such as ginger beer and kombucha). Work is also underway to expand our island’s organic garden. By producing crops of fresh produce at Amilla we will considerably lower our food miles/carbon footprint, as well as reduce the amount of waste created by packaging from imports.
While every resort in the Maldives relies upon importing fresh food due to the climate and a relatively small amount of viable agricultural land, growing as much of our own produce as possible will have a significant impact.
