Chill at the hotel's private villa, taste some delectable food and sip on some choicest wines while you are at Soneva Fushi

Eco-friendly everything is the mantra in 2020 and trust us, it has gone well beyond building homes and food! The eco-friendly travel moment came in the forefront when ace Indian designer Rahul Mishra spoke about his recent trip to the Maldives and how it inspired him to launch his collection, which was later showcased at the Paris Haute Couture Week 2020. The designer was holidaying in the earth-friendly resort- Soneva Fushi in the Maldives, when building a collection inspired by flora and fauna came to his mind.

From refusing to burn island waste in the open to building sustainable resources, the 59 villa resort has been the first of its kind to embrace environment-friendly approaches. The brainchild of Sonu Shivdasani and his Swedish wife Eva, the island resort first opened its doors in 1995 and since, have been the most premium luxury villa choices to everyone from Sophie Turner to Priyanka Chopra! It is located within the Baa Atoll, a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, on the island of Kunfunadhoo and is committed to ethical practices that in turn help save the planet.

The state of the art resort is often chosen by the rich and the famous not only for the luxury it offers but also for its sustainable approaches. This is because the Maldives is a low-lying country, and according to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, it may sink within a few decades. In a world where forest fires and floods happen quite regularly, it is the little things that matter. Even if it involves enjoying at a private beach or a villa, completely devoid of technology!

Some of its approaches involve serving water in a bottle with ceramic lids and making use of the charcoal from tea stumps for outdoor barbeques. According to National Geographic, " The resort has made over 30,000 blocks from glass, cement, and styrofoam for building projects throughout the island, and their stored compost is reused for the island’s organic herb garden." Not just that, the luxury resort also measures its carbon emissions, a breakthrough, we think. “I’m not sure if we’re still the only group to measure all three steps of carbon, but we’re certainly the only group to have a mandatory carbon offset,” CEO Sonu Shivdasani told In The Black in 2018.
