January 31, 2014 (Newswire.com) - "Achieving a Travelife Award isn't easy and requires a good result from the Travelife Audit" - http://www.travelifecollection.com/awards
Kuramathi seconds the statement, after attaining the Travelife Gold Award twice in a row. The distinctive award comes with hard work of course; which includes meeting with a number of strict policies based on the commitment given to sustainable practices in a resort/hotel following an audit. A strong focus is also highlighted on Corporate Social Responsibility strategies enforced by the resort. We take this moment to convey our heartfelt gratitude to our team members who contribute their efforts, to maintain the standards consistently.
Apart from the alluring natural beauty the island is renowned for, Kuramathi is one of the most self-sustained resorts in the Maldives. Being a large island compared to Maldivian standards, it uses the extra space diligently, with the many striking initiatives implemented up to this day. The island houses a powerhouse with 5 world-class generators, enough to supply electricity to the entire island. Water is recycled and used in various ways, thanks to our top-notch sewerage plant. Our garden greens, accounts for 70% of salads served on the island and features over 10 types of herbs; all originating from our efficiently run Hydroponics Garden. Standing tall as an eco-friendly resort, Kuramathi also plays a vital role to help the Rasdhoo community; the local island who calls us their neighbour, who attend educative presentations at the Eco Centre, and celebrating important events of the year such as the World Ocean Day and the World Environment Day.
