The Maldives is a nation with very few municipal waste facilities so creating a new approach to waste is a necessity. This suits the Soneva philosophy perfectly and Soneva Fushi recycles 90% of waste onsite through a robust waste management strategy combined with a focus on innovation. They consider waste an asset.
The food that is left over from onsite restaurants? This is composted to create valuable and nutritious soil for the resort’s vegetable gardens. The Styrofoam packaging that is used to keep food deliveries to the island fresh? This is transformed into lightweight blocks that they use in construction. Those last pieces of plastic that cannot be recycled? The Soneva Maker Programme transforms these into colourful Easter eggs and other durable items. The wine bottles from Soneva restaurants, as well as those from neighbouring resorts? The Soneva Glass Studio turns glass into stunning works of art.
