Travel with purpose

Conrad Maldives Rangali Island is on an eco-mission to make a difference. Our collaboration with environmental organization, Parley For The Oceans aims to help drive change and promote sustainable travel. Each villa will receive a Parley Kit, encouraging guests to reduce the use of materials that heavily impact on the environment and ocean. Join us in celebrating our oceans and nurturing our endangered environment.

Our journey towards a greener future

Conrad Maldives Rangali Island is on an eco-mission to make a difference.

Our collaboration with environmental organization, Parley For The Oceans aims to help drive change and promote sustainable travel. Following the principles of the Parley AIR Hospitality Program (Avoid, Intercept, Redesign), the resort will help to drive change by offering its guests the opportunity to purchase an exclusive Parley kit. Each kit contains a reusable stainless steel 0.7L Conrad x Parley co-branded water bottle and a Parley Ocean Plastic® Tote Bag. Each bag is made of an average of 5 intercepted plastic bottles and its purchase contributes to the removal of 10 pounds of marine plastic waste via the Parley Global Clean Up Network. Join us in celebrating our oceans and nurturing our endangered environment.

Our approach

A visual representation of plastic pollution

Thought-provoking artist John K. Melvin was commissioned to create eco-artwork to highlight the need for sustainable practices and motivate change.

Focusing on plastic pollution, Melvin constructed Evogyre: a centerpiece that resembles a jellyfish and combines 5,500 single-use plastic bottles. The striking structure can be found hanging from the ceiling in Rangala Bar.

A pledge to reducing plastic

By January 2020, we’re aiming to eliminate all single-use plastic from our resort. To make this happen, our current targets include:

  • Replacing plastic amenities such as toothbrushes with bamboo alternatives
  • Replacing plastic key cards with wooden key cards
  • Providing a plastic-free breakfast such as yogurt served in glass jars and paper-wrapped butter

Reef protection and regeneration

Launched in 2017, the coral regeneration program aims to protect the reefs surrounding the resort. With a complex eco-system and more than 10,000 species in the Maldives, the program includes a coral nursery and a coral adoption program for guests to partake in.

A community-led initiative

As well as being deeply committed to promoting sustainable travel, we’re also contributing to the local Maldivian community with our community outreach programs. Our initiatives provide career and learning opportunities for local youths and include:

  • Young Girls Apprenticeship Program
  • Hydroponics project promoting sustainable farming
  • Library project in Dhidoo Island
