Maldives Luxury Boutique Hotel on Baa Atoll
Description of Maldives Luxury Boutique Hotel on Baa Atoll
This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
The Maldives is a fragile environment. It is more fragile and more in danger than most other places on earth. The country’s existence relies on healthy coral reefs and a moderation of the sea level rise. The Maldives struggles to eliminate all the rubbish produced by over 1 million tourists per year and whilst educating locals in waste management is all part of a large project, as visitors to their home we encourage our guests to support in the following ways and help by leading by example. For this reason and for the obvious difficulty in eliminating several materials, we suggest to bring back the empty containers of shampoo, bath foam, conditioner, cream and photograph film. We also suggest to reuse plastic bags in shops.
The property has it's own desalination water plant ensuring that drinking water can be provided in glass bottles.
Grey water is collected for re-purposing - watering gardens/agricultural areas.
PeopleA Fair Deal
Island Luxury believes it is people who transform a holiday into an unforgettable experience and this is why the local community of Fulhadhoo is at the heart of their business. From the skilled local carpenters who have hand crafted the Boutique Hotel, to the nimble fingered seamstresses who have designed and made uniforms and pieces of soft furnishings. From the Maldivian chef, gardeners and cleaners to the captain and crew on the private sailing yacht SY Island Luxury. From their trained team of private Thakuru/Kamana - Island Luxury signature butlers, who will make every dream a possibility to their team of local hosts who will share the secrets of their island home.
The island's Women's Development Committee provide local ladies employment opportunities to support in-house laundry services, bake cakes, pastries and hedhikaa and organize a weekly food festival; a venue where guests and local families can interact and engage over tastes of the Maldives.
95% of the team are youth from the island of Fulhadhoo who completed an in house hospitality program during 2021 and that all but 2 members of the 25 strong team are all Maldivian.
