Travel with purpose
Conrad Maldives Rangali Island is on an eco-mission to make a difference. Join us in celebrating our oceans and nurturing our endangered environment.
A pledge to reduce our carbon footprint
We’re aiming to eliminate our carbon footprint as a resort. To make this happen, our current efforts include:
- Replacing plastic amenities such as toothbrushes with bamboo alternatives
- Replacing plastic key cards with wooden key cards
- Hydroponics Garden: We currently have two gardens located in Rangali-Finholu and Ranfinholu (our team member island), where we continue to grow lettuce, mint, basil, chili, and cucumber through hydroponic farming in our hydroponic garden.
- Chef’s garden is a seed-to-plate project which is nearing completion where guests will be able to pick various vegetables, herbs, and fruits that they can cook together with our chefs to create a culinary masterpiece they will enjoy.
- Replacing street lights, back-of-house area lights, and lights in corridors accessing guest villas with solar-powered lights
- Replacing staff corridors and office corridor lights with the motion sensor lights
- Providing a plastic-free breakfast such as yogurt served in glass jars and paper-wrapped butter
Giving Back to Nature
- Reef cleaning – This is an ongoing project carried out by our team members during different times of the year. We have organized a special reef cleaning to celebrate Earth Day this year.
- Coral Regeneration Program – This program is under the care of our in-house Marine Biologists who tend to our coral nursery daily. Once these corals mature they replant the healthy ones in our house reef.
- Banana Plantation Expansion Project – Each month we plant new banana saplings to reach our target of supplying 50% of the resort’s consumption by the third quarter of 2024.
A community-led initiative
- The newly completed Maldivian Village in Rangali Island provides our guests with a truly local experience in the property while those from local communities participate and perform traditional and cultural acts in this village to deepen our guests’ understanding of the Maldivian life.
- Weekly Maldivian Theme Night – We host a weekly Maldivian-themed buffet where women from nearby islands visit the resort to create authentic Maldivian food for our guests.
- A.Dh Atoll Hospital, Mahibadhoo – As part of our community outreach program, our team members frequently visit this local hospital and assist their team by carrying out maintenance and painting work.
- Swimming and Rescue Training – Students and staff of A.Dh Mandhoo School and the island’s community will be trained by our team members– the next training is scheduled for the 2nd Quarter of 2023.
- Installing a hydroponics garden in a nearby local island and training parents and students on hydroponic farming which can be utilized by them to create an additional source of income.
