As a sustainability-focused resort, Veligandu Island Resort & Spa had been energy-saving focused and looking at industry practices to reduce the carbon footprint.
Over the years, the Veligandu team continued to switch off the non-essential lights all around the island to participate in the global Earth Hour movement that drew attention to nature loss and the climate crisis. This year, Veligandu take part immensely and going to the next level to spread the same message and re-create the unmissable sight by turning off 90% of the electrical lights all around the island
In all our restaurants, our guests and team members will dine under candlelight without any electric lights to commemorate reducing the carbon footprint. Veligandu has organised a private beach dinner experience consists of luscious organic cuisines and organic wine set on the beach with live music using non-electronic music instruments to show we can still have a gourmet dining experience while reducing the carbon footprint.
Furthermore, the resort is well-prepared with exciting eco and carbon-conscious activities like zero-emission sunset yoga on the sandbank to sustainable Dhoni snorkelling trips, star gazing cruise to a screening of Eco-movie related to the planet and a beach cleaning activity.
