Environmental Mindfulness at Kagi Maldives Spa Island

Located at the tip of North Malé, in the heart of Malé Atoll, Kagi Maldives Spa Island is a luxury boutique resort offering a mindful wellness retreat in an inspiring island setting. Ideal for solo and couple travellers, the 50 all-pool villa resort is a true sanctuary for the senses that provides the perfect setting to slow down and immerse into self-discovery and self-care.

Kagi Maldives not only cares about the wellbeing of its guests but also looks after the environment and the property’s magnificent natural surroundings. The resort raises environmental awareness, shares information with guests and team members, and engages in ‘Marine Conservation’, as part of its Sustainability Programme.


Desalination and water bottling

As a part of resorts commitment to reducing the amount of plastic water bottles and offering fresh water in glass bottles via its very own desalination water plant. The glass bottles used for water are sterilised before being reused.

The savings for the environment are not only the obvious reduction in single use plastic bottles, but also include the transportation of the bottles from Malé to the Resort. Kagi Maldives is not purchasing drinks that come in plastic bottles and is instead committing to either glass or aluminum canned versions.

Sustainable building materials

Extensive use of natural materials and smart design and architecture allows for optimal use of natural conditions. LED lights are used at the entire resort and are generating significant savings of approximately 1000kWh per day. This equates to 742kg of emissions saved each and every day.

House reef and coral plantation

The resort has established coral nursery together with Euro-Divers, where currently 15 coral fragments are growing in a well-monitored environment to be transplanted back onto the reef in the future. Coral reef nurseries are important in the continued battle against coral bleaching due to water temperatures rising.

Pure natural beauty & self-care

Combining the wisdom of nature and the efficacy of science, Baani Spa has successfully partnered with the celebrity skin care brand Epicuren Discovery® which are a result-driven, anti-aging natural beauty brand that cares as much about the wellness and self-care of each person as they do about the environment.

To further enhance our sustainable pure life approach, Kagi Maldives’s Healing Ocean Skin care amenity range of hand and body wash, shampoo and conditioner, after-sun gel, hand and body soother and solid soap are all biodegradable. In a sensitive, vulnerable coral reef ecosystem like Kagi Maldives’s, it is of utmost importance that zero harm is done to the ocean. The Healing Ocean range features environment-friendly antimicrobial agents that ensure that no toxic pollutants run off into the sea. These sensuous, results-driven Healing Ocean products are all housed in beautiful recycled glass packaging created specifically for Kagi Maldives Spa Island guests.
