Dhigali Maldives bids farewell to plastic bottle with new water bottling plant

Dhigali Maldives has set up a water bottling plant this month and thereby have bid farewell to large amounts of plastic.

As part of the property’s green initiatives, Dhigali Maldives has taken a stand to eliminate the use of plastic water bottles and moves toward reusable glass bottles using a specially designed eco-friendly water filtration.

The facility, which is subject to strict hygiene standards to ensure the highest quality of water, uses reverse osmosis technology: high pressure pushes seawater through a semi-permeable membrane that holds back any unwanted substances. The water is then mineralized, chilled and ready to be enjoyed by our guests.

The introduction of the water bottling plant is an important element in the resort’s eco-friendly endeavors and a commitment to the protection of the environment in day-to-day operations.

Located in Raa Atoll, Dhigali Maldives can be reached by a 45-minute seaplane journey from Velana International Airport. The island offers 20 Beach Bungalows and 33 Deluxe Beach Bungalows to the South, and 62 Beach Villas which line the north and southwestern beaches.

Dining experiences at Dhigali are innovative and authentic, with the style and atmosphere of each restaurant reflecting the cuisine. There is a particular focus on fresh Asian dishes, including the specialist Asian restaurant Battuta.
