From this month, the luxurious Jumeirah Dhevanafushi and Jumeirah Vittaveli resorts in the Maldives are running new water bottling plants as part of an ongoing commitment to reduce the hotels’ carbon-footprints.
By utilising the water bottling plants instead of shipping in bottled water, each resort will save approximately 100,000 plastic bottles per year. This new water system will form an important part of both resorts’ continued effort to preserve the idyllic surroundings of the Maldives for future generations of guests.
The Eco Pure system will enable each hotel to treat sea water on site, passing it through complex stages of filtration to make it suitable for drinking. Salt content and other impurities are separated from the water, before minerals are added. The final product is then passed through a cooler for still water, and CO2 is added for sparkling water, before being stored in recyclable glass bottles.
Jumeirah Dhevanafushi is an exclusive all suite resort situated in the Gaafu Alifu Atoll, 400km south of the capital city of Malé. The intimate resort comprises 22 island villas, as well as an exclusive water village featuring 16 ocean villas. For personalised luxury closer to Malé guests opt for Jumeirah Vittaveli. All villas are complete with private swimming pools and private beach access.
