If I tell you Chic, Barefoot, Luxury, Beautiful and Green…located in Maldives…? What comes up in your mind ?
Some might say the latest trendy Resort in Maldives…and some others, aka the Chic Eco Retreat Aficionados will surely find the right answer which is : Soneva Fushi.
The very first Eco-friendly Luxury Resort, Soneva Fushi in Maldives
Soneva is a very innovative and successful Chic Eco retreat Resorts concept, created by 2 persons, Sonu and Eva Shivdasani, who have been convinced and charmed by the “Live Green Philosophy” long before the actual trend.
They have lived this way for years and decided in 1995 to create the very first Eco-friendly Luxury Resort, Soneva Fushi in Maldives, proving to the Hospitality industry that Luxury could perfectly be combined with Environment.
The true “Intelligent Luxury” was born. Soneva story and concept have since then, inspired many Luxury Hotels and Hotel Brands.
Here at Dreaming of Maldives, their new green challenge could not be ignored….
Soneva Fushi, Icon of Intelligent Luxury.
The Intelligent Luxury goes beyond the concept with a very clear and serious commitment : to make sustainable development a priority, without compromising the experience and expectations of guests.
Since 1995, Soneva Fushi challenges creativity and try first any new Green solution. If successful, the idea will then be applied to other resorts.
The last in date is the wide use of Solar Energy. After all…aren’t the Maldives a perfect place to use the Sun endless power ?
Solar Energy at Soneva Fushi
Pioneer in this huge project, Soneva Fushi has installed a 70kW solar photovoltaic (PV) power plant system that today has already achieved eight months of successful operation. It is the largest renewable energy plant currently operating in the Maldives.
The Sun covers at the moment 3% of the island needs and the installation will expand by another 300% in the near future with besides, the project to have the (very consuming) air conditioning systems converted to Solar Power.
Guests love it and we love it too, as we are, ourselves using this fabulous energy at home.
We hope now that this initiative will become an example and a model in Maldives and wish Soneva a great success on their Green road !
