Reethi Faru Resort Join Hands with Maldivian Thalassemia Society

Christmas is all about sharing the magical spirit of the season! As a constant endeavor to make a positive impact on the communities and in-keeping with the spirit of Christmas, and joy, and festivity, Reethi Faru Resort have joined hands with the Maldivian Thalassemia Society to create awareness and raise funds for those in need.

Contributing to sustainable tourism is a continuous process that requires constant support not just internally but externally. And Reethi Faru Resort with their guests, patrons and senior leadership, is continuing to echo the same sentiment of strengthening sustainability.


“It’s heartening to work hand-in-hand with our guests, who primarily choose us for our commitment towards sustainability,” a statement by the resort read. “Besides creating awareness and raising funds for the Maldivian Thalassaemia Society, we also have the “Adopt a Coral” program taking place tomorrow – we really want to make this year count with as much as we can possibly do. We truly appreciate and are humbled by the encouraging response that we get from our guests with each of our initiatives.”

In keeping with their conservation promise, as they marked their 3rd anniversary on December 22, Reethi Faru has started two new projects to continue conservation and preservation of the natural environment – ‘Adopt a Coral’ and ‘Adopt a Tree’. The focus of both these projects is to preserve, conserve and restore the natural balance – both marine and terrestrial. Sustainability is at the heart of all that they execute at the Reethi Faru Resort and the creation of the artificial reefs is a strong step in that direction. Essential to the health of the ocean, these reefs can now have guest participation as well, under the project name – ‘The Reef Builder Dive’. As an attempt to revive and stabilize biological depleted zones – these reefs would act as a valuable reproduction reservoir that can recreate a whole ecosystem.

Reethi Faru Resort won the Indian Ocean’s Leading Green Resort 2020 award and was nominated for the World’s Leading Green Resort 2020 and Maldives’ Leading Green Resort category at the World Travel Awards 2020. Additionally, the resort became the proud winners in two categories – Luxury Eco Resort (Regional) and Luxury Spa Resort (Continent) – at the recently concluded World Luxury Awards.

Reethi Faru is a stunning, one of a kind, tropical island paradise, where the glistening, crystal clear ocean meets endless white coral sand and tropical foliage making this a truly magical, lagoon escape. The resort is family run and has an enviable pedigree thanks to its drive for conserving the natural beauty of the islands and sustaining the ecosystems upon which the fragile coral reef relies.

This breath-taking, tropical island paradise is proud to have guardianship of all that nature has created on a tiny island in Raa Atoll, measuring just six hundred by three hundred and fifty metres. Guests can unwind in one of one hundred and fifty traditional, luxurious Maldivian villas, either complete with Jacuzzi, nestled in our tropical gardens, beachside, or on stilts over the turquoise water.
