World Oceans Day – Sustaining Life and Livelihoods

Each year on 8th June the global community joins forces to celebrate World Oceans Day, with the aim of sparking awareness of the plight of our oceans. At Hideaway Beach Resort Maldives we are surrounded by the clear, warm blue waters of the Indian Ocean and you only have to don a mask and take a peek below the surface to see the astounding abundance of life on the coral reefs on which the Maldives is formed. Sadly, pristine marine environments where species are safe from destructive fishing methods are few and far between across the globe.

The oceans are the life force of the planet, they cover over 70% of the surface, provide 50% of our oxygen and absorb greenhouse gases, they regulate the climate and are home to most biodiversity on Earth, they also provide food and livelihoods for many. Despite all the amazing things our oceans do, they are not given sufficient protection, they are suffering from pollution, overfishing, habitat destruction – current use of the oceans worldwide is unsustainable and they need help.

At Hideaway Beach Resort you can see for yourself the oceans at their best, go snorkelling or scuba diving, take a fishing trip where only sustainable methods are used, have a go at free-diving or enjoy a wide range of watersports. The water is warm, clear and full of life, it allows for adventure, provides a fantastic playground and the perfect place in which to take a cooling dip. Celebrate the oceans during your next stay at Hideaway and then tell everyone you know about the importance of protecting them. Awareness is the first step in putting a stop to the destruction of life on our blue planet.

Swim With Sea Turtles in the Maldives

A holiday at Hideaway Beach Resort & Spa Maldives will be full of incredible experiences but one that is always cited as a highlight amongst our guests is swimming with sea turtles. Six of the seven species of sea turtles in the world are found in the Maldives and despite regular sightings on the reefs here, they are classified as endangered globally so an opportunity to encounter them in their natural habitat is not to be missed.

During your stay with us, you can embark upon a Turtle Snorkelling Adventure at a nearby reef and tick off a much-coveted bucket list item. After just a 20-minute dhoni boat ride, you will jump into the crystal clear sparkling ocean above a reef fringing an uninhabited island and go in search of the resident hawksbill turtles. Upon spotting these fascinating creatures it’s very important to keep in mind that they are endangered and to ensure encounters and respectful and responsible. Key points to remember are:

  • Move slowly in the water with minimal splashing and refrain from talking where possible – although you may feel like shouting for joy at seeing a turtle, you don’t want to scare it away!
  • Leave a clear path for the turtle to get to the surface for their next breath – never swim directly above the turtle.
  • keep your distance and approach calmly from the side – your encounter will be much longer if the turtle is not frightened.
  • Never ever chase or attempt to touch turtles.

At the reefs close to Hideaway Beach Resort Maldives there is a vast array of life to be seen and although the turtles are the stars of the show on this excursion, you will also be swimming amongst an abundance of tropical reef fish with the possibility of moray eels, rays and larger species of fish too.

Hideaway appoints Carlo Di Nunzio as Executive Chef

Hideaway is very excited to welcome Chef Carlo Di Nunzio as our new Executive Chef. Originally from Torino, Italy, Chef Carlo is bringing with him an accomplished and impressive skillset and over 32 years of food experience, expertise, and management.

His passion for food is fuelled by the long-held belief that cooking is the only job in the world that brings out positive emotion in others. The joy and emotion in the faces of those who experience his culinary adventures and react to well-made dishes drive him as a chef. Preparing good food makes people happy- it is as simple as that.

Though initially inspired by the Italian palate, Chef Carlo has moved across the world in his mission to make people happy through food. He has honed new skills and gathered experience in Switzerland, France, Romania, Egypt, England, and Portugal before ending up here in the paradisiacal islands of the Maldives. During his time overseas, Carlo worked in international hotel chains and Michelin Star restaurants to better himself and further his mantra to bring joy to even the pickiest and hard-to-please customers.

When in Rome, do as the Romans do- and that is exactly what Chef Carlo practices during his time in the Maldives. To do this, he never ceases to stop learning and prefers to hear from local chefs about the way of the craft. In turn, he imparts his knowledge and as a team, they create some wonderful dishes for the guests.

Chef Carlo has already started sharing creations at Hideaway with countless recipes in the works together with the culinary team. As the resort’s new Executive Chef, he says that he is looking to wow and impress the resort’s guests with his many culinary delights and bring dining at Hideaway to the next level.

We can’t wait to see what he creates and are confident you will love all the new dishes available across the resort.
