This year, Amilla Fushi and Finolhu Resorts will once again participate in Earth Hour, the initiative promoted by WWF as a symbolic gesture to fight against climate change. On Saturday, 25th March 2017, both resorts will switch off non-essential lighting from 8:30pm to 09:30pm (Resorts’ time) to contribute to this campaign. Both Amilla Fushi and Finolhu Resorts’ time is two hours ahead of local time.
Each resort will be showing their support towards this worldwide event. In Amilla Fushi, HUB (Home of the Underwater Biosphere) will be holding a special “Night of the Ocean” presentation from 8:00pm to 9:00pm. At Baazaar Restaurant – Fish & Chips, the resort will hold a special Lobster and Champagne evening, lit only by candlelight. Whilst at #JavvuSpa there will be candles lit outside the beauty bar and the Clean and Lean cafe.
In Finolhu, Baahaa Grill will hold a Starlight Dinner on the beach and guests may opt to go with a set menu or a la carte, lit only by candlelight. They will also be serving go green cocktail inspired by the Earth Hour. Whilst at #TheCoveClub, their visiting practitioner Ocean Bloom will hold an hour of special Earth Hour Meditation Evening with candles lit on the beach.
The Small Maldives Island Company also encourages its team of islanders to support the initiative by turning off computers, air-conditioning units and non-essential lights throughout back-of-the-house during 9:00pm to 10:00pm to create a greener and more sustainable environment.
“The Small Maldives Island Company embraces the significant role we have as a responsible corporate citizen to protect the environment. Participating in Earth Hour campaign is indeed an honour for us to show our commitment to energy conservation whilst delivering great guest experiences”, said Mark Hehir, CEO & Curator of The Small Maldives Island Company (Amilla Fushi and Finolhu Resorts).
