Departures Recognize Joali Maldives

Joali Maldives has been recognised for its eco-friendly initiatives.

In its 2020 Legend Awards, Departures magazine listed Joali Maldives’ reef restoration project amongst “The Best Eco-Initiatives in Hospitality This Year”.

At Joali Maldives, on-site marine biologist Samantha Reynolds leads the hotel’s reef restoration project.

For this project, Reynolds grows coral at Joali Maldives’ underwater nursery for nine to 12 months, then transplants the coral to an underwater snorkel trail accessible to Joali guests.

Guests are encouraged to take part in the growing and transplanting process, and snorkelers benefit from the underwater beauty this restoration initiative is producing.

The inaugural Legend Awards took place last year.

The awards, selected by the Departures editorial team, span 24 categories, from Best Luxury Hotel Opening to Most Instagrammable Destination, covering every aspect of air, rail, and hotel travel experiences and amenities.

For the 2020 Legend Awards, editors curated the list of honourees based on experiences between May 1, 2019 to March 31, 2020, awarding honours to at least 10 properties, products or services per category.

“It breaks our heart to say that, of course, now is not the time to travel to these cities, experience these hotels, and dine at these exceptional restaurants. But we’re looking ahead to when we can, and hope these awards inspire you to do the same,” the editorial team said.

Departures is published by Meredith Corporation for American Express Platinum Card members, and describes itself as the leading voice of luxury and experiences.
