National Geographic Traveller Photo Exhibition Features Sheraton Maldives Full Moon Resort & Spa
Best Luxury Resorts in The Maldives
01 July, 2021
Sheraton Maldives Full Moon Resort & Spa’ marine conservation effort has been recognized by National Geographic Traveller’s photo exhibition in Moscow and St. Petersburg.
The national tourism office of the Maldives, formally known as Visit Maldives, teamed up with National Geographic Traveller to host a photo exhibition in two of Russia’s major cities to promote Maldives as a topof-the-mind safe haven destination. Starting in Moscow, the exhibition is held at Tversky Boulevard, one of the city’s main streets. This is followed by a second showcase in St. Petersburg’s Kirov Central Park, a dynamically developing cultural and recreational space.
The exhibition features photos showcasing the nature, tradition, heritage, local island lifestyle and various unique experiences offered in the Maldives. It is estimated to attract at least 3 million visitors.
“Despite the unfavorable circumstances ongoing this year, we are extremely honored to be selected as one of the contributors to the Visit Maldives and National Geographic Traveller’s photo exhibition of the Maldives in Russia. This recognizes our dedication in promoting our marine conservation project “Adopt a Coral”. We will continue to take this mission as a key priority.” Said Emilio Fortini, General Manager of Sheraton Maldives Full Moon Resort & Spa.
Adopt a Coral at Sheraton Maldives Full Moon Resort & Spa invites guests to participate in the fun and interactive coral-fragment plantation activity in an effort to promote reef habitats and generate new coral. The resort has teamed up with Reefscapers, a coral propagation organization appointed by the Maldivian Government as custodians of the coral colonies in the Gulhi Falhu lagoon which was slated to be destroyed as part of a reclamation project. The activity is led by experts and offers a hands-on experience to participants while also providing an alternative business to the 250 inhabitants whose sole previous source of employment was fishing.
Adopt a Coral is included in “Good Travel with Marriott Bonvoy”’ a pilot program launched Marriott International across Asia Pacific focusing on sustainable travel experiences, aiming to create opportunities for guests to forge first-hand connections with local communities and the environment during their stay, promoting both cultural understanding and positive change.
