More than 1 billion people participate in Earth Day activities on or around 22nd April each year, making it the largest civic observance on the planet; each year there is a different focus and the theme for 2024 is Planet vs. Plastic. One of the best ways to appreciate the need for everyone to invest their time and resources in bringing about a huge reduction in the use, production and ensuing disposal of plastic is to witness a pristine example of nature first hand and Kudadoo Maldives Private Island is a great place to do that, in a responsible way.

With far-flung places in the world now accessible with convenient flights, it has become even more important, as travellers, to choose responsibly, but this doesn’t mean you have to ditch luxury. At Kudadoo we have finely balanced all the trappings of bespoke luxury escapes with the need to protect the fragile environment we are privileged to be part of. Kudadoo says ‘No, thank you!’ to plastic straws and utensils known to cause significant damage to the health of our planet. Sustainable, biodegradable materials are used instead to help protect the environment from debris and microplastics that poison our ocean and consequently our lives that inevitably depend on it.

In other environmental efforts we use fresh local products wherever possible, we tap into the plentiful supply of daily sunshine and harness its tremendous power to supply the entire resort’s needs. Our drinking water is made using the latest in reverse osmosis technology and eco-friendliness drives our choice of bathroom amenities.

Kudadoo is defined not only by its sustainable and eco-friendly approach but also by its effortless experiences and adventures, many of which give you a spectacular appreciation of the beauty that surrounds us. Embark upon a serene paddleboard adventure at sunrise – just the sound of your paddle cutting through the glassy surface of the ocean and perhaps a pod of dolphins for company; snorkel the pristine reef outside your residence and join our Prodivers Team at the seagrass meadows to witness turtles grazing, or go in search of mantas and sharks – coming face to face with these magnificent creatures will be cause for celebration, not only of your own experiences but of Mother Nature.

Residents are invited to join the team at Kudadoo in planting trees on Earth Day – join us in coming together, in person, or from home, to celebrate the beauty and importance of nature and to raise awareness of how important it is to look after our planet.
