Hideaway Beach Resort & Spa joins hands with Parley Maldives for the Ocean campaign

Hideaway Beach Resort & Spa is proud to partner with Parley Maldives for the Ocean, a leading environmental organisation, this June. Initiated by Parley Maldives, along with the support of MATI and Maldives Government, this collaboration aims to drive sustainable change and promote the conservation of marine ecosystems in the Maldives.

As part of this collaboration, all stakeholders in the tourism industry, including Hideaway will work together to implement various initiatives that focus on reducing plastic pollution, protecting coral reefs, and preserving the natural beauty of the Maldives’ pristine ocean environment. The joint efforts will include ongoing beach clean-ups, educational programs, and the implementation of sustainable practices within our resort.

Hideaway is committed to operating in an eco-friendly way, having already stepped away from single-use plastic. This collaboration with Parley Maldives for the Ocean further strengthens our sustainability efforts. By integrating Parley’s innovative solutions and expertise, we aim to minimise our ecological footprint while offering our guests an unforgettable, environmentally responsible experience.

In celebration of World Ocean Day we conducted clean-up dives, held talks on conserving the marine environment, and carried out reef clean-ups involving our guests and team members. Additionally, as Hideaway is famous for its exquisite pristine beach on the large island, the team and guests took part in a beach clean-up as well.

The partnership between Parley Maldives for the Ocean and Hideaway represents a significant step towards creating a more sustainable future for the Maldives’ marine ecosystems. Through our collective actions, we strive to inspire others in the industry, local communities, and travellers to embrace sustainable practices and become stewards of the ocean.

Those who have witnessed the incredible sights below th ocean’s surface in the Maldives will want to inspire everyone they know to do all they can to protect the blue of our planet. If you haven’t already done so, try snorkelling and scuba diving during your next stay with us – you will see sights you will never forget, an abundance of life residing on the reefs.

Farm to Table Organic Dining at Hideaway

In recent years we’ve all become a lot more conscious of the health of our bodies and that of the environment and at Hideaway Beach Resort & Spa Maldives we pride ourselves in contributing to that ethos during our guests’ holidays with us.

Our organic garden allows us to follow the ‘Farm to Table’ philosophy with as many fruits, vegetables and herbs as we can. The geographical location and environment present quite a challenge to accessing a wide variety of fresh foods while at the same time having a sustainable approach, so by growing as much as we can, right here on the island, we can ensure not only freshness but also reduce waste and packaging.

Our talented team of chefs, in alliance with our equally talented gardeners, plan menus around the growing seasons and availability. The fresh produce is harvested at just the right time for our guests to enjoy optimum ripeness, allowing them to reap the rewards of not only great-tasting fresh food, but also the highest possible level of nutrients. There’s no transportation or packaging so the environmental cost is minimal too, a win-win situation. Waste is minimal since only what is needed is picked and menus are carefully planned around the harvest; as food waste worldwide contributes to around 8% of the global greenhouse gas emissions, anything we can do to prevent this will help reduce the carbon footprint of not only our resort but our guests too.

Mr Afzal, Director of Operations looking after the Farm to Table initiative, and the rest of the team are proud of the Farm to Table initiative at Hideaway and look forward to sharing with you the delicious homegrown eggplant, papaya, Maldivian chilli, lettuce, banana, cucumber, and watermelon that form crops currently being grown. Look out for them as they appear on the buffet tables on Maldivian nights and International nights as well as in the Thai Food.

Hop Into the Spirit of Easter With Hideaway

Here at Hideaway Beach Resort & Spa, we are thrilled to announce a fun-filled Easter program for our guests. We have something for everyone to enjoy with lots of exciting activities that will make your holiday truly unforgettable. Celebrations will be in full swing from from morning ’til night for 4 days starting on 7th April. Since children love Easter even more than the adults, their celebrations start a day earlier, on 6th April!

Kids look forward to a chocolate masterclass with renowned chef Thomas Alphonsine, Easter crafts and games, a movie night, fishing trip, beach and water fun plus many more things. While the kids are busy, parents can take the opportunity for an indulgent spa treatment or simply to read a few pages of a book, uninterrupted.

Hideaway is not a resort where the kids get ALL the fun though…there’s a full program that the entire family can hop into as much as they like. Unwind with a serene meditation session forest thing in the morning – what better way to start the day? Test your coordination with the fun egg and spoon race and bunny hop sack race, take part in the traditional Easter Egg hunt, cool off with water sports or try diving; restore a sense of calm with yoga and spa experiences, and in the evenings get your culture fix with the Boduberu show, and dance the night away to out DJ’s tunes!

No matter how full the program is at Hideaway, we know that Easter isn’t complete without sweet so, as a special addition to our Easter program, we are collaborating with renowned pastry chef Thomas Alphonsine, from France. He will be hosting pastry lessons dedicated to the chocolate lovers and will create a Signature Dessert for the dessert menu at Meeru Bar during his stay.

We’re thrilled to partner with Chef Thomas Alphonsine, to bring true epicurean excellence to the Maldives,” said Aishath Hamid, Hideaway’s General Manager. “And to share his passion for the creative techniques and superb quality in culinary arts – which is a philosophy that is infused throughout our resort.

Working in France as a Pastry Chef, I built my philosophy to focus on taste, texture, pure ingredients and design. My desire is to create a feeling, an experience – leaving you with a wonderful memory” said Chef Thomas Alphonsine “In the pastry line, you will find different flavours and textures. I am confident everyone will be able to find one or more pastries they truly love, which creates this feeling”.
