, the inspirational island oasis nestled in the South Ari Atoll embarks on an eco-journey though working with leading environmental organization and collaboration network, and ephemeral artist, to ignite a new appreciation for the oceans and surrounding environment. Conrad Maldives Rangali Island is committed to the ban of single-use plastics and will soon feature Parley products, which will aid guests in understanding their ecological footprint and helping to reduce it while they are on property and long after they leave. To celebrate the progressive movement towards furthering sustainable hospitality, the resort unveiled a large-scale installation by acclaimed artist John K. Melvin. Encouraging participation from both the Maldives community and global travelers alike, the resort continues to further its commitment to preserving the beauty of the Maldives, for generations to come.
Starting late summer 2019, Conrad Maldives Rangali Island will work with Parley For The Oceans to take an active role in becoming part of the solution to the challenges that face the world’s oceans. Following the principles of the Parley AIR Hospitality Program (Avoid, Intercept, Redesign), the resort will help to drive change by offering its guests a Parley Kit available in each guest villa. Each ParleyKit contains a reusable stainless steel 0.7L Conrad x Parley co-branded water bottle and a Parley Ocean Plastic® Tote Bag. Each bag is made of an average of 5 intercepted plastic bottles and its purchase contributes to the removal of 10 pounds of marine plastic waste via the Parley Global Clean Up Network. This way, Conrad guests are encouraged to play an active role in reducing the use of harmful materials.
“With a mindful approach to travel, Conrad Maldives Rangali Island continues to inspire change,” said Stefano Ruzza, General Manager of Conrad Maldives Rangali Island. “Through creative collaborations with likeminded brands and the development of unique and educational experiences on and off property, we encourage our guests to become part of the solution as they reinforce a positive impact while traveling as well as in their daily life at home.”
