Kuramathi Awarded Travelife Gold Certification for Tenth Consecutive Year
Kuramathi Maldives receives the Travelife Gold certification for the tenth consecutive year since 2012. Travelife is an internationally recognized certification system promoting sustainability within the tourism industry.
The resort was granted the highest distinction after an on-site assessment and extensive evaluation of the resort’s performance on waste management, energy and water consumption, team member welfare and community relations.
The renewed pledge highlights the eco-initiatives at the forefront of the resort’s operations and the objectives set to achieve excellence in sustainability. Some initiatives include offering glass bottles and water refilling stations for guest use, reef-safe sunscreens, monitoring changes in seawater by deploying new light and temperature loggers around the island.
This year, Kuramathi targets to further reduce plastic bottles in minibars by replacing them with glass bottle alternatives, install automatic door closer in the guest villas, transition guest key cards to a wooden biodegradable version, and introduce biodigester for organic waste and turning it into compost, amongst others.
Executive Resident Manager Ibrahim Ali said: “The Travelife policies guide us in the path of sustainability and securing a certification assures guests that we are aligned with our goals to protect our rich environment and the community, which are our greatest assets.”
