Kuramathi Maldives announces the release of botany book
The Maldives Hotels and Travel Guide
03 November, 2022
The acres of lush vegetation in Kuramathi render an emerald mirage arising from the blue waters. Devoted to conserving and showcasing the greenery that adorns the island, Kuramathi launched the book, Kuramathi – Quick Guide to Plants in the Maldives.
The event was attended by the Former President and Speaker of Parliament Mohamed Nasheed, Board Director of Universal Resorts Ali Noordeen, Members of Parliament and Councillors of Rasdhoo. The Chairman of Universal Resorts Mohamed Umar Manik also joined as a Guest of Honour.
A collaboration between Kuramathi and authors Dr Shafia Aminath and Dr Chanaka Talpahewa, the book is a comprehensive account of the terrestrial flora endemic to the Maldives. The guidebook compiles information about several plant species from different environments such as littoral forests and beach areas, backyard fruits and ornamental plants.
The resort island served as an insightful base where most of the featured flora are found thriving in several nature appreciation sites such as the 300-year-old Banyan Tree, the Botanic Walk, a route where guests can observe diverse tropical vegetation, the Nature Trail, an untouched Maldivian forest in the heart of the island, and the Hydroponic Garden where most of the fresh produce served in the buffet restaurants are grown and harvested.
“The publication is a credible knowledge tool added to the extensive activities of the resort. The book captures information on 65 plants, that constitute our biodiversity and are used in our food, culture, and traditions,” said Dr Aminath.
Kuramathi is one of the first resorts to open in the Maldives and is part of Universal Resorts of Universal Enterprises Private Ltd, a 100% Maldivian-owned company, and the pioneer of tourism in the Maldives.
Situated in Rasdhoo Atoll archipelago, Kuramathi Maldives is 1.8 km in length and tapers to a pristine stretch of white sandbank, lending a dramatic quality to the idyllic surroundings of turquoise lagoons, tropical jungle and flora.
