Tourism has rapidly developed in the Maldives and become just as vital for the small-island country as the traditional tuna fisheries. While the country moves forward, achieving economic growth and social development, it is at the same time confronted by unique environmental challenges such as sea-level rise and erosion, the management of freshwater and waste and the protection and conservation of biodiversity.
Ever since its opening in 1995, Soneva Fushi has believed in its corporate core value “to create innovative and enriching experiences in a sustainable environment”. The luxury resort places the well-being of the environment and the communities it operates in high on its agenda and has a social and environmental responsibility fund. A part of that fund is used to sponsor the annual Soneva Nature Trip, amongst other beneficial projects.
