Fairmont Maldives, Sirru Fen Fushi, an exclusive retreat nestled in the secluded Shaviyani Atoll, is thrilled to introduce its latest offering, the revolutionary Generation Sea programme.
This enchanting private island paradise has been making waves in the realm of marine conservation, boasting remarkable initiatives such as the Coralarium, an awe-inspiring underwater art gallery and coral regeneration project, as well as The Sustainability Lab, where guests can witness the transformation of plastic waste into captivating creations.
With the launch of the Generation Sea programme, children and adults alike can embark on a captivating journey to unravel the mysteries of the Maldives’ diverse marine ecosystem, learn to swim like graceful mermaids, and engage in conservation workshops led by the resort’s resident marine biologist.
Igniting a passion for ecological awareness in the upcoming generation of conscientious travellers, Fairmont Maldives, Sirru Fen Fushi, affectionately known as the ‘secret water island’ among locals, offers invaluable insights into the preservation of the underwater realm. As part of this extraordinary programme, budding environmental warriors can venture to the Sustainability Lab, where advanced machinery breathes new life into discarded waste, transforming it into exquisite bespoke souvenirs.
Through hands-on experiences, guests can craft their very own Generation Sea bracelets, ingeniously fashioned from ghost nets collected from the ocean—an imperative endeavour in safeguarding the Maldives‘ precious turtle population. Furthermore, participants will have the opportunity to partake in informative workshops, empowering them to contribute to the conservation of the region’s flourishing marine life for generations to come.
Subsequently, these young explorers can put their newfound knowledge into action by joining the marine biologist on an exciting excursion to the Coralarium, where they can marvel at tropical shoals of fish and have close encounters with majestic manta rays.
Adventurers with a thirst for deeper exploration can dive into the resort’s thriving 9-kilometre-long house reef, accompanied by the expertise of Sub Oceanic, the on-site diving partner. With mesmerising mermaid tails adorning their bodies, they will delve into the ethereal realm beneath the ocean’s surface, gliding past vibrant coral formations and graceful sea turtles, and bearing witness to the captivating spectacle of manta ray cleaning stations in motion.
Back on terra firma, families can indulge in the plethora of unique activities available at the Kids’ Club or unleash their creativity in the art studio, where they can fashion extraordinary marine-inspired masterpieces, including exquisite shell jewellery befitting royalty.
Following days filled with exploration and adventure, families can unwind in the sublime comfort of their Beach Tented Villa, nestled amidst the island’s pristine, powder-soft sands. Embraced by crystalline waters and enveloped by lush tropical jungle, these villas beckon guests to experience the ultimate castaway retreat, complete with an expansive decking area, an outdoor tub for moments of blissful serenity, and the impeccable service of a personal butler.
With ample space to accommodate a family of four, these villas strike the perfect harmony between opulence, excitement, spaciousness, and seclusion, presenting a unique alternative to the conventional beach and overwater accommodations found throughout the region. As twilight descends, families can savour the magic of a private beach barbecue, enhanced by a captivating pop-up cinema screening and freshly popped popcorn, culminating in an unforgettable evening beneath the twinkling canopy of stars.
