Banyan Tree Maldives Madivaru
Opened in 2007, Banyan Tree Madivaru features six tented pool villas, the first such concept in the Maldives, set amid white sandy beaches, a beautiful shallow lagoon, and breathtaking house reefs.
Banyan Tree Madivaru was built without removing large trees and with only the exact footprint of each villa cleared. To avoid the loss of any trees and provide the natural means for absorbing atmospheric carbon, any trees within a villa’s planned footprint were transplanted to different areas of the island, usually towards the beach. Transplanting such trees towards the beach also helped reduce the light visible from the ocean thus helping protect the island’s status as a natural turtle nesting ground.
All boats at Madivaru have 4-stroke engines that are more environmentally friendly than standard 2-stroke engines which inherently allow fuel to leak via the combustion process. Tended by a team of only 25 multi-talented associates who are expertly trained, the resort is geared for low environmental impact, including the treatment plant for waste for the 6 tented villas.
