Amilla Resort Becomes Only Hotel in Maldives to Achieve ‘Considerate Collection’ Green Status
Best Eco-friendly hotels in Maldives
Amilla Maldives Resort and Residences’ eco-credentials have been given a further seal of approval, with its acceptance into Small Luxury Hotels of the World’s Considerate Collection.
This makes it the only resort in the Maldives to become a member of the Considerate Collection - an ethos-driven standard for boutique hotels that go the extra mile to be greener.
Small Luxury Hotels of the World (SLH) curated the Considerate Collection list from its partner hotels to help guests make informed choices when booking their holidays. As such, SLH’s Considerate Collection only includes hotels that have made genuine and quantified efforts to be more sustainable. Amilla Maldives Resort’s elevation to Considerate Collection status comes within weeks of the announcement of its joining SLH, a group which handpicks partner hotels that demonstrate an independent spirit.
Hotels and resorts within SLH’s Considerate Collection are chosen only if they meet the highest standards of SLH’s Sustainability Criteria, aligned with the UN’s Sustainability Development Goals (SDGs), and the Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC) framework. They either achieved a GSTC-recognised certification or passed an assessment by SLH’s Sustainability Advisory Panel, with independent and impartial review by the GSTC. They are visited, vetted, and verified against these criteria and other quality goals.
Amilla’s Sustainability and Wellness Mentor, Victoria Kruse, says: “This is such incredibly good news for us, especially as no other resort in the Maldives is in this collection. It is a culmination of the hard work of our whole team in reaching for and achieving the sustainability goals we enacted 2 ½ years ago.”
Since Victoria and her husband, Jason Kruse, took over the helm just over two years ago, they have initiated around 30 different sustainability projects at Amilla Maldives, ranging from homegrown organic ingredients for the kitchens to regenerating the house reef and protecting nesting sites of the beautiful long-tailed tropicbirds, which normally only nest on uninhabited islands but found a safe haven amongst the pristine jungle of the naturally lush private island resort.

Amilla Maldives Resort and Residences
Best Experience: Family, Couples, Groups, Dining, Diving, Spa
Featuring more flexible approach to tropical island luxury, Amilla Fushi offers a luxurious 'island home' for both couples and families in the Maldives. Younger, hipper, with a fresh and contemporary accomodation, the resort has so much to offer, from high design and inventive dining options, to stylish villas and amazing snorkelling and diving. Located in the Baa atoll, UNESCO Biosphere reserve, this might just be the most family friendly resort in the Maldives. Family villas have been designed to ensure that both the parent’s and children’s bedrooms are in the same building. The villas are very spacious, and unlike many two bedroom options you might find elsewhere, the second bedrooms are large and so also work very well for families with older children. The Sultan's Village kids’ club at Amilla Fushi is terrific – all palm tree swings, finger painting and beach games – teens can play billiards and X-Box, and all childcare, including baby-sitting, is complimentary. There is also a children's pool and beach club close by if parents wish to relax in close proximity to the Kids Club. In 2018, Amilla Fushi has been recognised as the leading family resort in Maldives. Read Full Review
