Eco Magic in the Maldives

Book yourself the ultimate green holiday at the first 100% solar powered luxury resort in the world, Finolhu Villas on Kaafu Atoll in the Maldives. Baroque Travel will make all your travel reservations for you

 

Not only is this resort the first to be solely powered by the sun, but Finolhu Villas is also one of the most beautiful resorts in the world. Located over the water in Kaafu Atoll in the Maldives, it was designed by Yuji Yamazaki to have minimal impact on the environment. It’s located on an island that encompasses five hectares in all, and has also been designed as a luxurious getaway, as well as offering its own energy source.

 

The architect has used the resort’s solar panels as a design element, which is innovation of the highest form. But despite being pretty, they are also extremely effective, generating in the region of a megawatt of energy each day, which is more than required to power the whole place. Of course, excess energy is stored for when the sun isn’t shining. But that’s not all. There’s also a desalination tank on the island providing a self-sufficient water supply as well as an efficient system of waste management and water for landscaping. And, despite all these energy-efficient projects, the resort still manages to be beautiful and luxurious!

 

The resort which opened in February 2015, offers 52 villas set on stilts on the resort’s central jetty, which then branches off. Each of the three-roomed villas boasts high ceilings and is traditionally covered with shingles. Each also offers its own private beach and swimming pool, not to mention breathtaking views. Guests enjoy the services of a private butler, and all the privacy they require. Meals are all prepared in the Villa by a private chef, who offers breakfast, tea and a 24-hour a la carte menu for private meals or barbecues. For those who would like some company, the resort also offers a gourmet restaurant, bar and pool area, not to mention a state-of-the-art gym for weights and cardio and spa.

 

Facilities are typical of a luxury Maldives vacation with a wide selection of marine water sports including snorkelling, scuba diving, waterskiing, glass-bottom boats and kayaking. The resort, which is owned by Club Med, also offers extensive dining opportunities and personalised service.

Finolhu Villas is the ideal location for a honeymoon or private vacation on a paradise island, with the added bonus of being 100% environmentally friendly. Of course, there are some eco-friendly activities on offer too, such as star gazing, beach soccer, exploring the island and its magical underwater world in Male atoll.
