Renowned marine biologist visits Halaveli

Next month, guests at Halaveli will have the opportunity to dive or snorkel with world famous marine biologist and reef conservationist Robin Aiello.

Robin Aiello

Robin Aiello

Robin will be visiting Halaveli from 3-31 March. Well known for her studies into marine animal adaptations and ecology, Harvard graduate and environmental management consultant Robin spends at least 8-10 months of the year on or in the ocean, between working on expedition ships in the arctic and Antarctic, and leading dive trips in the tropics.

Her previous expeditions have included diving with a wide variety of sharks – including Great Whites – to document their behaviour, living underwater for two weeks in a saturation chamber to study coral biology and observing jellyfish under an ice-shelf in Antarctica.

As part of her visit to Halaveli, Robin will run weekly events in order to share her expertise with our guests.

Events will include:

  • accompanied dive
  • accompanied snorkel
  • kids snorkel trip
  • presentation with slides
  • private dive or snorkel trips on request.
Coral reefscaping at Constance Halaveli

Robin’s visit coincides with our own reefscaping programme at Halaveli in which we are stimulating regrowth in the coral around the lagoon damaged by the tsunami of 2004.

During Robin’s trip to Halaveli, we’ll be posting regular updates, photos from under the ocean and more.

Travel writers and reporters gathered at top locations in the three cities to celebrate the unveiling of the new Constance Hotels & Resorts’ brand.

Amidst an evening of champagne and canapés at London’s stylish W hotel Andrew Milton, Chief Operations Officer of Constance Hotels talked about the values that lie behind the brand, and how our luxury hotels and resorts will now be grouped into two collections: ‘unique resort experiences’ and ‘ultimate hotel experiences’.

The idea behind this, he explained, is to make it easier for you to choose the perfect luxury holiday experience for them. Inspired by passion, our team travels the world to seek out the finest things in life, so you can experience them too when you visit any of our seven resorts in the Indian Ocean.

 

Unique Resort Experience
These are our luxury resorts with a soul with their own personality that makes them stand out individually:
