We commit to eco-friendly & sustainable practices for a Green Maldives

Grand Park Kodhipparu, Maldives, is committed to achieving environmental and socio-cultural sustainability. As a Maldives eco friendly resort, we strive to emulate international best practices in sustainable hospitality and achieve continual improvement in both our ecological and socio-cultural sustainability performance.

The resort island is part of a sensitive coral reef ecosystem with an abundance of marine species - including nationally protected species such as corals, turtles, sharks, dolphins, and lobsters.  The terrestrial island ecosystem also includes protected fauna such as several bird species.

An appointed resort sustainability “Green Team” has the responsibility and skills to ensure effective ongoing environmental and sociocultural sustainability measures are in place and performance monitored.  We employ a Sustainability Manager who engages guests and staff on the resort’s natural ecosystems and carries out underwater conservation and restoration work of the resort’s coral reef ecosystem.
