Blue Journeys Dive Centre at Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa Recognised For Conservation and Sustainability Efforts
Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa is thrilled to share that the property’s in-house Blue Journeys Dive and Activity Centre has been awarded the PADI Green Star™ award for its outstanding dedication to ensuring sustainability and marine conservation.
This prestigious award identifies businesses that actively protect and care for the environment via initiatives such as energy-friendly transportation practices, use of sustainable materials, conservation leadership, water conservation and responsible energy use.
General Manager Mariano Silvestri comments “protecting the environment is the cornerstone of our ethos at the Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa so we are ecstatic to have been granted this significant award.”
Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa is situated on a private island, 55km north of the Equator in one of the largest and deepest atolls in the world, North Huvadhoo. The hotel’s Blue Journeys Dive and Activity Centre has been a PADI five star centre since 2009. The island is home to a pristine 360 degree house reef rivalling any spot in the Maldives. With no need for boats and being able to simply jump off the jetty, the house reef is a one of the best dive sites in the Maldives. Why?
- Nationwide research has found the house reef to have the greatest coral cover in the Maldives, exceeding 100% cover
- Hot spot for biodiversity and home to an exceptional number of species
- Endangered species frequently sighted. Between 10-20% of the marine species are classified as critically endangered, endangered or vulnerable by the IUCN
The Huvadhoo Atoll, home of Park Hyatt Maldives, spans 82km from north to south and is 65km at its widest point in the center. Peppered around Huvadhoo Atoll are many smaller patch reefs, small coral islets and coral knolls.
The outer reef of this Atoll forms a choppy barrier to the open Indian Ocean; it consists of around 40 smaller reef segments where divers will find many schools of fish, large mantas, sharks and other fish life dwelling in the deep Maldivian waters.
Nightly starting rates at Park Hyatt Maldives are from US $830/£595* per villa, inclusive of Breakfast. Meal plans up to all-inclusive are available.
