These sustainable floating Christmas trees marvel guests at THE OZEN COLLECTION
Best Luxury All Inclusive Hotels in the Maldives
28 December, 2021
Festive celebrations bring alive old and new traditions, with the spectacular floating Christmas trees made entirely from sustainable materials adding a focal point to the decorations.
OZEN LIFE MAADHOO
A 48.25-feet-high floating Christmas tree surrounded by clear turquoise waters and white sandy beaches enchants guests at Maadhoo island.
Glittering lights, stars and dazzling reflections in the lagoon complete the Christmas-card setting.
It took a team of 17 colleagues over 24 days of expert workmanship to complete this engineering feat, resulting in the tallest eco-friendly floating Christmas tree in the Maldives!
Preparations have been underway much longer, with teams collecting recyclable materials for over five months. About 200 bundles of reused
Kadjan (palm leaves), recovered from the water villa renovations, have been used to build the structure. In addition, there are 18 discarded bicycles and handmade metal stars, all lit with bright, multi-coloured LED lights adorning this one-of-a-kind Christmas tree.Check Availability and Prices
OZEN RESERVE BOLIFUSHI
Sister resort, OZEN RESERVE BOLIFUSHI, also features an enchanting 46-feet-high floating Christmas tree. Every bit as elegant as the rest of Bolifushi island, the Christmas tree adds to the lavish festive display while also boasting of a minimal carbon footprint.
Colleagues reused 36 empty engine oil barrels and 505 Regiform boxes to construct the frame.
It took a team of four colleagues about four months to complete this massive project.
To wrap up the holiday season, OZEN LIFE MAADHOO has a Christmas Tree Coral Planting and Sinking ceremony to be held at Palms beach on 7 January 2021. Corals will be planted on the recycled tree and the frame will be sunk to the ocean floor. Treating guests to a delightful, timeless celebration.
Sustainability is at the heart of operations and the experience offered at THE OZEN COLLECTION. From earning Green Globe Certifications for both its resorts to building an impressive solar power setup, the brand has been steadily introducing impactful green initiatives.Check Availability and Prices
