Purple tips of the new coral regrowth
Back in November 2011, our team of experts at Constance Halaveli Resort launched a reefscaping programme that aims to stimulate the growth of coral in the lagoon around the Maldives’ resort, and help repair the damage caused by the 2004 Tsunami in 2004.
Since we launched the metal cage structure into the lagoon, there has been significant growth. The purple tips of the coral are a sign that the coral is growing a very rapid rate. Great news!
The next step in the project is a delicate and very important one. Once the coral has reached a healthy size it will be removed from the metal frame and planted in the sea bed within a marked area.
Great progress as the coral starts to grow
The coral will then be monitored regularly to see how it adapts to being placed back in the natural environment.
We’ll keep you posted on progress.
We’d love to hear what you think about the project – you can leave a comment on the blog below, or post to our Constance Facebook page or Twitter.
Mineral water produced at Constance Halaveli
Since March 2011, Constance Halaveli has been producing its own-label still and sparkling mineral water.
By turning tap water into mineral water using our own bottling plant, we’ve reduced the need for plastic water bottles in the resort, helping to protect the natural environment around us.
We use a 7-stage filtration system to produce 200 1 litre bottles of both still and sparkling water, and 50 half litre bottles every day.
Our Halaveli still water is provided with our compliments in each of the villas at the resort. The smaller bottles are provided free of charge at our Spa de Constance.
