Recently, Reethi Faru added a ‘coral tree’ nursery as a part of the resort’s conservation promise and reef restoration efforts. Likewise, in its quest for becoming a sustainable island, the boutique resort also produces organic food with sustainable farming concepts adopted within the resort.
The resort also began mushroom cultivation and farming and within 25 days they were able to harvest the first batch. Previously the resort announced that it is working with three types of mushrooms. And also the resort’s team is experimenting to see which types of mushrooms grow best in Maldivian weather conditions.
Reethi Faru Resort is well known for its Eco and Sustainability efforts to invest more time in taking care of the planet. Located on the island of Filaidhoo in Raa Atoll, the resort is a private boutique resort with an enviable pedigree for conserving the natural beauty of the islands and sustaining the ecosystems upon which the fragile coral reef relies.
