We have embarked on an exciting new journey of sustainability. From creating new organic gardens to protecting our UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve, we believe in Voting for the Planet.
SUSTAINABILITY in the Maldives
As we're lucky enough to live in the stunning Baa Atoll UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve, we are committed to marine conservation. We're striving to reduce all single-use plastics (that can end up in the ocean and harm marine-life) and to work in harmony with the natural bounty of the area. We have a water bottling plant on the island to provide our guests and Amilla Islanders with pure water; negating the need for plastic bottles. Just one of the ways we're doing our bit for the environment.
HOMEMADE @ AMILLA
Another way we lower our carbon footprint – and reduce packaging waste – is via our homemade project. We create natural sodas, probiotics, kombucha, and even spa products right here on the island.
HOMEGROWN @ AMILLA
At the heart of our pioneering ‘Wellness Your Way’ menus are Amilla’s organic gardens, banana plantation and Cluckingham Palace. We grow as many ingredients as we can on the island to reduce our carbon footprint and ensure freshness.
The Technical and Vocational Education Centre was established by the Coastline Foundation in 2017. It trains Maldivian youths and adults with no formal education in vocational skills for sustainable employment opportunities. TVEC also embeds social and personal development in the training.
PLASTIC’S NOT FANTASTIC
We’re working hand-in-hand with Parley for the Oceans on fighting plastic ocean waste. We have a reverse osmosis plant on site to create still and sparkling water daily, using re-fillable glass bottles. We use refillable ceramic containers for bathroom amenities and have banned plastic straws.
