Constance Halaveli involved in major project to protect reefs in Maldives

Constance Halaveli is thrilled to be involved in an important IUCN Maldives Marine Project aimed at helping resorts manage and protect their precious reefs.

IUCN Maldives Marine Project helps resorts manage & protect reefs

IUCN Maldives Marine Project helps resorts manage & protect reefs

The IUCN Maldives Marine Project, endorsed by the government of Maldives, hopes to develop a framework to help resorts manage their marine environment by establishing Marine Managed Areas.

The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) is the oldest and largest global non-profit environmental organisation in the world and it has selected Ari Atoll as the demonstration atoll for this project. We at Halaveli are excited to have been chosen as one of the resorts taking part.

This week Senior Project Officer, Patrick Svensson PhD, and Marine Biologist, Barbara, will be arriving at Halaveli. They will be working closely with our dive centre to conduct extensive house reef and resort reef system surveys.

The data collected will then be used to create a reef habitat map to illustrate areas of coral cover, diversity and resilience to aid us in managing and maintaining our precious reefs.

Protecting the environment of Halaveli

At Halaveli looking after the natural wonders of our environment is very important to us so that we can pass this beautiful region on to the next generation in tact.

That is why we are also currently working with Valmont and Water Solutions on a coral growth program in the waters around Constance Halaveli.

Water sports at Constance Halaveli, Maldives

As one of our long standing members of staff, Ibrahim Amir has been working at Constance Halaveli for more than 30 years, long before it became part of the Constance group, and he’s loved every minute of it.

It was in 1990 that he discovered his true passion for water sports, and changed his job from barman to water sports instructor.

So what inspires him after all these years?

Ibi explains, ‘This job gives me the opportunity to combine the place, which has been my home for so many years, with my big passion: water sports in all regards.’

He describes how important it is to be easily approachable for guests and to give them the best service possible. Behind the scenes, Ibi keeps all the water sports equipment at Halaveli up to date and in great condition.

Ibi’s enthusiasm for water sports is infectious, and he’s our man on the ground at Constance Halaveli making sure we’re up to speed with the hottest new trends out on the water.

Constance Halaveli's luxurious water villa

Constance Halaveli’s luxurious water villa

Johnny G, stayed at Constance Halaveli, Maldives

‘Luxury Paradise’ – The best hotel we have ever been. Luxury without compromise, perfect service. Water villas are absolutely amazing, with own pool and sea view. Terrace with the pool on each water villa provides 100% privacy.

Marvelmann, stayed at Constance Lémuria, Seychelles

‘Constant Constance Luxury’ – This was my first visit to the Seychelles, and I chose the Constance Lemuria because I previously had such lovely experiences of their properties in Mauritius and the Maldives.

I don’t know what it is that make this small hotel chain so outstanding, apart from the locations, the staff and the attention to detail, but whatever it is, if it could be bottled, you could sell it for a fortune.

However, it is the staff that make a stay in this hotel feel as though you’ve joined part of a wonderful family where nothing is too much trouble.

Paradise comes at a price, but when the experience is this good, it’s really worth it.

Steve A, stayed at Constance Belle Mare Plage, Mauritius

‘Another wonderful holiday at Belle Mare Plage’ – This was our 4th visit to the wonderful Belle Mare Plage Hotel and that says it all!!!!.

Excellent is an easy word to say but in this case it is not enough to comment on the resort, the accommodation, the food, the golf but most of all the great and caring staff who always go the extra mile, with a SMILE!!!!

Manfred M, stayed at Constance Tsarabanjina, Madagascar

‘Robinson Crusoe in luxury’ – After 6 years of abstinence we returned to Tsarabanjina again for our 20th wedding anniversary. It is so amazing how this island and the staff there make you feel welcome.

With only 24 cabins (all recently renovated) set ecologically-friendly just up the North beach and the South beach you get the feeling that you are almost alone on here.

The white beaches and turquoise waters are very tempting and the coral reefs invite you to snorkel or scuba dive at leisure directly from the beach. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are welcome breaks to meet other guests in the completely informal atmosphere of the bar and restaurant.

Staff is very friendly and helpful and does not bother you if you just want your peace.

Coral growth project at Constance Halaveli moves into second phase

A dhoni shaped structure for the coral growth project

We at Constance Halaveli are excited to be moving into the second phase of our coral growth program, following the completion of the successful first phase.

So far, in partnership with Valmont and Water Solutions, we have planted more than 250 coral fragments in two locations in the lagoon and are thrilled to report they are thriving.

For the second phase of the project a structure shaped like a traditional dhoni boat will be planted with coral and submerged to attract marine life to an area in the lagoon which is currently without coral.

Once the project is completed these new areas of coral reef will attract new marine life and will become a major attraction for snorkellers. In the meantime we hope to get guests involved in the project so that they can learn more about the beautiful coral reefs we are growing here.

Wine recommendations from Constance Halaveli

Constance Halaveli boasts a wine list to rival many European Michelin-starred restaurants and head sommelier Florian David is rightly proud of the extensive wine cellar that features some of the world’s best wines.

Wine recommendations from Constance Halaveli

Wine recommendations from Constance Halaveli

With more than a thousand fine wines mainly from Europe, South Africa and New Zealand, Florian considers that Halaveli has the best selection of wines in the Maldives.

One of the things which makes Halaveli’s selection so unique is that many of the wines are sourced from the winemakers directly by our sommeliers.

Our teams visit vineyards across the new and old world to search out the very best wines from traditional as well as innovative new winemakers.

Florian’s top wine recommendations

Of all the fine wines in our cellar, here are Florian’s top recommendations.

Florian says, ‘We at Halaveli have the best winemakers from France.’

  • De Montille – the lively legend of Volnay and Pommard
  • Raveneau – the king of Chablis
  • Lucien Lemoine – one of the most talented Burgundian winemaker of the past 10 years
  • La Grange des Peres – the most elegant of all the Languedoc wines
  • Domaine de Trevallon – the ultimate proof that there is great wine in Provence

‘We also have the very best vintage of the grand Bordeaux wines.’

  • Pauillac, Château Lynch Bages, 5th Cru Classé 1990 – the best vintage of the past 30 years
  • Pauillac, Château Pichon Baron Longueville, 2nd Cru Classé 1989 – less famous than 1990 but beautifully well-balanced
  • Margaux, Château Margaux, 1st Cru Classé 1990 – simply a legend
  • Bordeaux, Château La Mission Haut-Brion 1945 – the most feminine vintage ever and also the most difficult to find (although not, of course, at Halaveli)
  • Sauternes ‘Creme de Tête’, Château Gilette 1961 – an amazing vintage from an amazing producer

‘To finish, we also have the finest and most exclusive Champagne.’

  • Dom Perignon 2003 and 2004 – the shining star of Champagne
  • Cristal 2005 – the Champagne Tsar
  • Cristal Rose 2005 – probably the most exclusive Rose Champagne
  • Salon 1997 – The Grand Cru of Champagne
  • Billecart Salmon, ‘Clos St Hilaire’, Blanc de Noirs 1998 – a Champagne with a sensitive soul of Pinot Noir
