Where Luxury Blends with Nature
Green Star Diamond Award
In recognition of the efforts taken to protect and preserve, the Green Star Diamond Award by the Five Star Diamond Award has been bestowed to Ayada Maldives. Recognizing and celebrating the intersection of first class luxury with environmental awareness, Ayada Maldives is deeply honored to be the first ever recipient of this prestigious award.
Fresh Water & Energy
Our electricity is produced by state of the art diesel powered generators. The energy required for heating water in both the guest and staff accommodation is produced through the Quantum Eco Hot Water system whereby we conserve more energy whilst heating water, unlike the traditional water heating methods.
A reverse osmosis plant is situated on site to purify the water for drinking and other purposes. Ayada Maldives bottles its own water in glass bottles which reduces the need to waste thousands of plastic bottles a year.
We exclusively use inverter ducted air conditioners where there is a 50% energy saving during the cooling operation and 64% energy savings during the heating operation. This technology provides a more even room temperature.
All combustible waste is incinerated on the island, while non-combustible waste is taken to Thilafushi, a special land fill island near Male.
The resort is equipped with a state of the art waste water treatment plant. Treated water is used for irrigation on the island.
Waste reducing initiatives
In order to minimize waste, we have implemented several initiatives to minimize plastic waste, paper waste. to reduce chemicals used in daily operations and our overall CO2 emission and footprint.
Coral & Sea Life
Ayada Maldives in partnership with Seamarc has implemented a reef scaping and coral regeneration project throughout the coral reef around the resort. Our aim is to develop and manage the resorts own coral nursery and rehabilitation project.
Broken or threatened corals are harvested and attached to portable coral trays and replanted in the ocean allowing the branching corals to grow faster and whereby new habitats are grown rapidly and old habitats are replenished.
Guests staying at the resort can get involved by adopting their own coral for transplantation in to the reef.
Besides doing our best to protect our nature, we also encourage our guests to remain responsible and refrain from activities that can damage the underwater ecosystem.
Day to day activities
The daily operation of Ayada Maldives has been carefully planned to minimize environmental footprint throughout all departments. We have strict policies and procedures to ensure optimal power consumption and reduce waste output as much as possible.
Producing freshwater and bottling it to glass bottles in house to reduce plastic bottles
Branches and dry leaves are used for composting with sludge of sewerage treatment plant
Using bio degradable bags for housekeeping purposes
Linen laundry bags for all operation
Monitoring and controlling daily water and power consumption
Monitoring and managing our carbon foot print
Proper usage of sewerage plant and re-using treated water for the gardening purposes
Proper maintenance of all refrigeration and AC units to minimize the usage of refrigerants
Awareness programs for colleagues to minimize power and electricity usage
