Amilla Maldives Joins Small Luxury Hotels of the World
Amilla Maldives Resort and Residences has partnered with Small Luxury Hotels of the World (SLH). The 70-villa resort in Baa Atoll becomes one of only five high-end resorts in Maldives to grace SLH’s portfolio of partner hotels.
SLH is an exclusive community of independently minded travellers and independently spirited properties that are able to offer secluded, discrete options with the highest standards of luxury and guest wellbeing. Member hotels are deeply rooted in their locality and many have long been key supporters of their local community and environment. Amilla Maldives strives to celebrate and uplift Maldivian talent by supporting local artists and working with local suppliers where possible.
Furthermore, pursuant to SHL’s ethos of conscious travel and sustainability, Amilla Maldives is set within the Baa Atoll UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve, and the resort has committed to helping to regenerate corals in the area with the help of its resident marine biologist, to reduce energy waste and to recycle as much refuse as possible, as part of its conservation and environmental efforts. Amilla also recently became officially Silver EarthCheck certified.
Amilla’s Sustainability and Wellness Mentor, Victoria Kruse, said: “SLH is such an incredible mark of quality, it adds a degree of credibility to Amilla. It supports the dwindling array of small privately owned properties around the world that are fighting to remain independent and offer unique experiences for guests looking for something outside the cookie cutter experience. We are incredibly proud to be accepted into the elite group of hotels that make up this organisation and look forward welcoming SLH’s Invited guests to our Naturally Lush island.”
