Nova Maldives, a new star resort in the Maldives takes pride in its sustainability endeavours with strong commitments given to conscious travel, environmental protection and creating a sustainable future. Cutting new paths to immerse guests in its sustainable efforts, Nova Maldives has launched a special ‘Love and Do Good’ experience for couples to uplift their romantic holiday in the sunny isles.
With this unique experience, couples can commemorate their love in innovative ways through engaging in sustainable activities. Some of the specially crafted activities will focus on empowering the local community to conserve the ecosystem while others will preserve the natural environment and surroundings of the resort.
Situated in the midst of the pristine South Ari Atoll, Nova is in an excellent position to take advantage of the many splendid dive sites and abundant marine life residing in the atoll. With manta rays and whale sharks sighted throughout the year, Nova is the perfect place for couples to discover the underwater world through intriguing flora and fauna workshops, Q&A sessions and responsible Manta excursions hosted by the resident marine biologist.
Moreover, under Nova’s collaboration with the Maldives Whale Shark Research Programme, couples can better educate themselves on the various conservation efforts undertaken by the group to preserve Whale Sharks in the Maldives. Get to know about the threats these rare giants face and the best practices to observe when encountering them in the marine wild. Beyond the waters, duos can also explore the terrestrial wonders and lush greenery of the natural island through an exclusive Flora & Fauna workshop.
During their time on the island, couples can seal their love for the environment and for each other by adopting their own coral. Nova’s Coral Frame Programme enables all lovers to leave their mark underwater by planting a coral. Even after they depart, couples can keep track of their coral and its growth through real-time monthly updates shared by the resort.
Aligning with the Nova brand, the resort also provides equal opportunities for guests to connect with the Maldivian culture and heritage during their stay via weekly Holhuashi events. Here, authentic local flavours, ingenious beats of Maldivian music and the traditional lifestyle of the archipelago are highlighted. Additionally, couples can also observe the cultural connection up-close and personal by visiting a nearby local island and interacting with the friendly locals.
As part of its commitment to empowering local communities, Nova hosts art classes at the resort brought by Maldivian artists. Art enthusiasts can unfold their creativity here with plenty of openings to talk and learn more about traditional art crafts. They can even contribute and support local artists by making purchases and taking back home an art piece – a token of Maldivian culture.
To spend a soulful retreat in the Maldives, couples can opt for the ‘Love and Do Good’ experience, filled with moments of togetherness and the chance to positively impact the environment and local communities. Coming as travellers and leaving as environmental stewards with an eco-conscious mindset is the true meaning of a vacation well spent in the unspoiled beauty of the Maldives.
