Hotel & Resorts

At The Green Wall we have made it easy for you to find certified sustainable resorts in the Maldives.

The Maldives is one of the world’s lowest-lying countries made up of 26 natural atolls. These natural atolls have become synonymous with luxury with resorts giving travelers the option to stay in stunning over-water bungalows.

Unfortunately, the low-lying nature of the Maldives also makes it one of the most susceptible to the risks of climate change. A rise in sea levels of one meter brought on by global temperature increases could leave the Maldives mostly uninhabitable.

Small island states, like the Maldives, may face some of the worst impacts of a changing climate despite having barely contributed to global emissions.

By taking measures to improve sustainability, several resorts are changing to story of the Maldives to one of hope.

Below is a list of Green Globe certified resorts that are talking actions to reduce their impact on the environment.
