Meeru Island, a Sustainable Maldives Resort
At Meeru Island Resort & Spa, we strive to be the most sustainable resort in the Maldives with our commitment to doing everything possible to positively impact the community in which we operate. Through our energy-efficient practices and sustainable operations, we help to ensure a greener tomorrow.
Every Sunday, we organise a guided nature walk where guests are given a tour around and receive information about the various plants and trees that flourish in our beautiful surroundings, emphasising their importance and benefits of maintaining them on the island.

Guests can choose to participate in a coral rehabilitation program through coral planting in our own Meeru Coral Garden. The programme was designed to regenerate segments of the reef and promote new corals’ growth. For over four years, our coral garden has been a favourite spot for Meeru guests, where they can set their sights on a spectacular range of marine creatures such as sea turtles, stingrays, and schools of fish.

Meeru Island Resort & Spa, one of the most expansive resort islands in the Maldives, features ‘Meeru Garden’. The sustainable garden was not only developed to meet the needs of our daily kitchen operations but also provide our guests and team members with fresh ingredients and organic produce. There is also a ‘Nature and Vegetation Exploration’ tour offered to guests, which educates them on fruit and vegetable cultivation on the island and how this initiative helps preserve and respect the natural surroundings.
No to Single-use Plastics
Reducing the amount of single-use plastics discarded each day is part of our on-going sustainability policy. From 2017 to 2019, through our on-site bottling plant, we have decreased the use of plastic water bottles by 71%. Glass water bottles are now used in all our villas, restaurants and bars, whilst plastic drinking straws have also been replaced with eco-friendly paper straws.
As part of our efforts to raise awareness, we celebrate global events concerning Environmental Protection and Sustainability every year. Worldwide happenings we participate in include Environment Day, Earth Hour, Ocean Day, Tourism Day and Food Day.
