Meeru Island Resort & Spa strives in developing sustainable tourism as a reality in order to meet the needs of all guests and local communities while protecting and enhancing opportunities for the future of this majestical archipelago and the natural wonders to be found around the island.
The vegetable and fruit garden in Meeru encloses developed cultivated areas where both fruits and vegetables are being planted and grown. It provides the kitchens with an abundant supply of fresh fruits and vegetables every day. Over 20 different varieties are grown on-site.
The coral nursery project started in 2016 after a coral bleaching event which
affected most of the coral reefs in the Maldives. In order to support speeding up the recovery of the reefs, fragments of coral are placed onto frames where they can grow before being placed back on the reef. In Meeru, the coral nursery is one of the most successful in the Maldives and as such, the lagoon where the nursery is located boasts in an abundance of marine life being attracted.
Coral reef nurseries are important in the continued battle against coral bleaching due to water temperatures rising. A must see spot in Meeru!
