Sustainable Development of Coral Reefs at Cinnamon Dhonveli Maldives

Renowned for its iconic stunning over-water suites, Cinnamon Dhonveli Maldives is a beautiful tropical island resort offering exclusive access to the classic Pasta Point surf break, described as the “wave-machine” of the North Malé Atol. The resort first started their coral restoration project in 2018 to help replenish diminishing coral reefs and have continued to develop this initiative since then. Sanjeeva Perera, General Manager at the resort explained, “Coral reefs represent some of the world's most spectacular beauty spots. They are also the foundation of marine life, without them many of the sea's most exquisite species will not survive. The awareness and in-depth knowledge we receive from Green Globe during the recertification process continues to guide us on the correct path to take in the bold steps forward toward the sustainable development of coral reefs that will benefit future generations in the Maldives.”

Yes, eco-lodges in southern Portugal and yoga retreats in Costa Rica can be sustainable - but your trip doesn't have to come at a cost. Luxury “green travel” is fantastic, but only affordable for a few. This is not always a viable option if we want the concept of sustainable travel to become the new normal.
