Social Responsibility Journey

PLANET 21

As part of AccorHotels, we’re proud members of Planet 21, an industry-leading corporate social responsibility program that promotes environmental sustainability in our hotels and communities.

Building on the guidelines of Agenda 21, the environmental action plan signed at the Rio Earth Summit in 1992, Planet 21 challenges all of us—from guests to hotel colleagues to property developers—to think creatively about the ways our actions affect not just the environment, but the people and places that we call home. It also challenges us to put these thoughts into concrete actions that help our communities and our planet.

In your guest room, you can find eco-friendly amenities—such as soaps and shower gels—and energy-efficient light bulbs and electronics wherever possible. To reduce our water usage, you have the option to decline daily cleaning of sheets and linens. Our kitchens are working to increase their reliance on local, sustainable suppliers while using more hotel property to grow our own produce, herbs and honey.

 

WATCH PROGRAM

Fairmont is committed to helping end the exploitation of children around the world, because we believe that every child deserves to feel safe, no matter where they are. Through our WATCH program, we’ve partnered with law enforcement agencies and community organizations to ensure that child abuse does not occur at our properties.

While our staff are specially trained to recognize and respond to indications of abuse involving children, we also ask that our guests report any instances in which they suspect a minor might be in distress.

 

OTHER INITIATIVES

At the corporate level, we’re striving to increase our colleague diversity, particularly among executives, to better reflect the world we live in. And we’re dedicating ourselves to becoming even better members of our community, with initiatives that will see us donating more of our unused food products and amenities, building long-lasting partnerships with local nonprofit organizations, beginning new fundraising ventures and more.

 

To learn more about Planet 21, WATCH and our other social responsibility initiatives, visit fairmont.com/planet21. We’re excited to continue our sustainability journey—and we hope that you’ll share that journey with us.

Marine Biologists

Meet Sam

Our resident Marine Biologist, Sam, started his love of the marine world after being inspired by David Attenborough's Blue Planet series. During his post-graduate degree program in Marine Environmental Management at the University of York, he completed a research field trip to the Maldives in 2016 to study coral reef ecosystems. Sam returned later that year to collect data on whale sharks for his dissertation with the Maldives Whale Shark Research Program. Sam subsequently joined the newly developed Fairmont Maldives in April 2017 and has since become our champion for all things marine.

Meet Charlie

Charlie's passion for the natural world began at a very young age growing up in South Africa. His journey continued at the University of Exeter in the United Kingdom where he studied Conservation Biology and Ecology and focused on marine based classes. Later on, he took a coral reef research internship in Seychelles while obtaining his PADI Divemaster certification. Currently Charlie is the Assistant Marine Biologist at Fairmont Maldives, helping our resort to contribute to and protect the abundant marine life around the island.

Coralarium Journey

Discover the world's first semi-submerged art gallery located in the heart of our resort's lagoon. Our Marine Biologists can share their knowledge on both the inspiration of the designs and its' primary purpose as both an artificial habitat space for all marine life and the center for our coral restoration project.

DISCOVER MORE

House Reef Snorkel

Snorkel out to our house reef, a home to over 350 different fish species as well as the perfect place to meet our resident turtles. Come help our Marine Biologists to find and introduce you to some of our most famous and friendly turtles; Isabella, Anika, Phoebe and Martha, and the best part is, if you discover a brand new turtle, you get the chance to name him or her!

Water Villa Snorkels

During the construction of the resort, our Marine Biologists helped to build coral reef colonies around the water villas. Being a shallow, protected area with usually little current, this is the perfect place to see a large variety of different coral and marine life for those who are new to snorkeling. Discover an abundance of colorful marine life as you step out from your private villa.

Reef Cleaning

Here at Fairmont Maldives, you have the opportunity to help contribute to the global effort of protecting the world's oceans from the threat of pollution. A couple of times a month, our Marine Biologists will lead a team of both staff and guests to help remove trash from our coral reef ecosystem. This not only results in a cleaner and healthier environment, but also a safer habitat for our rich diversity of marine life.

Turtle Research

We work in collaboration with the Olive Ridley Project by providing photo ID updates of all our turtle encounters. Currently we have been able to identify 42 new turtles to add to their database. This helps our understanding of their migration patterns, to better help construct more effective conservation strategies for their continued safety and protection.

Manta Research

We work in collaboration with the Manta Trust by providing photo ID updates of all our Manta encounters. Currently we have helped identify 30 individual Manta Rays, 16 of which were new to their database. This helps our understanding of their migration patterns, to better help construct more effective conservation strategies for their continued safety and protection.

Underwater Discovery

Snorkeling

Snorkel out to our pristine house reef to encounter fascinating marine life in the company of our experience guides. Whether it's right outside your doorstep on the water villa, or a journey of a lifetime with a snorkeling session to the Coralarium with our resident marine biologist.

Diving

For the ultimate underwater experience, try a diving trip with our partner, Sub Oceanic to the 9-kilometre house reef, home to the manta ray cleaning stations. Our experienced guides could also help you to start your diving journey or diving certification on the island.
