CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY AT JUMEIRAH VITTAVELI

The team at Jumeirah Vittaveli undertake several projects and initiatives to work towards preserving the environment, biodiversity, culture and heritage of the Maldives. Below are just a few examples of how we are working towards creating a more sustainable future:
Water Bottling Plants at Jumeirah Vittaveli
Both Jumeirah Dhevanafushi and Jumeirah Vittaveli use in-house water bottling plants as part of an on-going commitment to reduce the hotels’ carbon-footprints. By utilising the water bottling plants instead of shipping in bottled water, each resort saves approximately 100,000 plastic bottles per year. This new water system is an important part of both resorts’ continued effort to preserve the idyllic surroundings of the Maldives for future generations of guests.
Sustainable Fishing
All our fishing excursions comply with Maldivian law that enforces sustainable fishing. Commercial fishing in the Maldives is done by lines only which ensures that the fish are harvested at a sustainable rate and the fish population does not decline over time. It also prevents the use of large fishing nets that often capture other marine life such as turtles and dolphins.
Ethical Purchasing
Jumeirah Vittaveli priorities are working with local suppliers to reduce environmental impacts of importing goods and also improves social and ethical practices. We do not condone or support any activities that are against Maldivian government laws and acts.
Heat Recovery
At Jumeirah Vittaveli, we use a heat recovery (cogeneration) system that uses excess or ‘waste’ heat from the generators to heat the water supply on the island. The heat released during power generation warms up the cooling agent of the generator, gets passed on to an exchanger attached to the generator’s radiator and is then transferred to the cold freshwater from the desalination plant via stainless steel plates. In this way, 30 °C water is heated to 50 °C therefore saving energy and reducing heat waste.

TALISE FITNESS

Our state of the art over-water gym provides a challenging and rewarding space to enable a healthy balance during your stay. Draw inspiration from panoramic views of the Indian Ocean as you use first class equipment designed to help you achieve your fitness goals.
Breathe new life into your fitness regime with a complimentary personal training session in our well-appointed health club and 24-hour fitness centre. There’s also beachside training options, circuit training and stretch classes to help you stay active in the way that suits you.
For those interested in restoring the balance of body and mind, private and group yoga classes are available.
