Sheraton Maldives Full Moon Resort & Spa has taken an innovative step towards sustainable gastronomy. But what exactly is behind this new culinary movement in the Maldives?
Ecological and Culinary – A New Symbiosis
The words “culinary creation” and “sustainability” might seem like opposites to many. However, at the renowned five-star Sheraton Maldives Full Moon Resort & Spa on the private island of Furanafushi, they have found a harmonious union. With the introduction of a completely carbon-free menu, the resort shows its ongoing commitment to environmental protection.
“The introduction of our zero carbon menu is a significant step towards minimising our environmental impact, while at the same time presenting our guests with a new culinary experience,” says General Manager Mohamed El Aghoury.
From garden to table: a culinary revolution
Under the masterful direction of Executive Chef Riccardo Pinna, guests are treated to a culinary experience of a special kind. With an impressive 130 square metre Chef’s Garden, the resort delivers the freshest ingredients to its guests. From the organic watermelon and tomato spread to the reef fish cooked in coconut water, the menu impresses not only with taste but also with its eco-friendly approach.
Thanks to the tireless efforts of landscape gardener Ali Thakan, it is ensured that the organically grown vegetables meet the highest quality standards. But that is not all. The Sheraton Maldives Full Moon Resort & Spa also relies on local producers to minimise its carbon footprint.
In harmony with nature
The natural island of Furanafushi, home to the Sheraton Maldives Full Moon Resort & Spa, offers not only luxurious comfort but also a vibrant ecosystem. The island’s fertile soil, enriched with essential nutrients, is home to 65 plant species that help absorb large amounts of carbon dioxide. So it’s no wonder that the resort is taking such innovative steps towards sustainability. The carbon-free menu reflects the values of Marriott International’s “Serve 360: Doing Good in Every Direction”.
If travel, luxury and sustainability have a crossroads, it is certainly at the Sheraton Maldives Full Moon Resort & Spa. It is not only a place of enjoyment, but also a testimony to how businesses can positively contribute to saving our planet in this day and age. A stay here is not only a reward for the soul, but also a contribution to a greener tomorrow. For bookings and more information, visit www.sheratonmaldives.com.
