Each of the 105 villas and suites at Mövenpick Resort Kuredhivaru Maldives comes with its own plunge pool, but the real luxury at this private-island paradise in the Noonu Atoll is knowing that the property is committed to safeguarding the fragile environment in which it resides.

Apart from harnessing renewable energy through solar power, the resort operates a desalination plant that produces 4,000 liters of drinking water per day; bottled on-site, this eliminates the usage of approximately 300,000 plastic bottles per year. Another of its sustainability drives is to educate snorkelers and divers before any tour about the coral reef ecosystem and its surroundings.

Back on dry land, guests receive a pencil that contains a water-activated seed capsule to be planted and transformed into an edible herb when they return home, while plastic straws have been banished in favor of ones made from biodegradable bamboo.

Together with an imminent coral-planting project, these initiatives ensure that eco-minded guests can rest easy on their next Maldivian getaway.
