Located in such close proximity to Baa Atoll’s UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, we see sustainability as a non-negotiable and we keep it at the core of everything we do.
Whether through the establishment of a research-led Marine Discovery Centre, screening of educational films and presentations or working in collaboration with the Manta Trust Foundation, protecting our beautiful lagoon and beyond is at the heart of everything we do. Our on-island Marine Discovery Centre is staffed by a team of experienced Marine Biologists excited to share their research about the local environment.
OCEAN CONSERVATION PROGRAMME
Join us in supporting the Manta Trust Foundation in their mission to protect the oceans and the graceful Mantas that inhabit them. At InterContinental® Maldives Maamunagau Resort, we encourage guests to whole-heartedly contribute to our conservation efforts, whether through adopting their very own Manta, watching our educational presentations or getting involved with our exciting research initiatives and planting of coral nurseries and many activities like private excursions to manta sites in our lagoon and Hanifaru Bay, “Adopt a Manta” initiative and Marine Biology Night feature.
SOLAR ENERGY PRODUCTION
By installing solar panels on the roof of our staff accommodation building, we are able to generate enough power for the daily running of our back of house complex. This reduces our carbon footprint by a staggering 3,149.280 tons per year.
GLASS CRUSHING & COMPOSTING
To reduce our volume of glass waste, we are working on the implementation of a glass crushing system that will allow us to use it as a component alongside aggregate in concrete works. Similarly, by creating our own compost, we are saving the ocean from food components shown to be harmful to marine species.
