With Summer fast approaching, many travellers are seeking to spend their vacations in a responsible manner and Nova Maldives has just the right offer for them! The bright new star resort in the Maldives has launched its ‘Slow Itinerary’ offer – a programme that embarks guests on a journey of discovery with a suite of sustainable activities to get onboard with. Through this programme, guests can acquire new skills, support the local community and environment through meaningful projects and reconnect with nature while offsetting their environmental footprint.
Guests staying at Nova can begin their culinary voyage by diving into a myriad of organic and local dining experiences, brought by the resort’s iconic dining spaces. Soul Kitchen and Flames will offer brand-new vegan and vegetarian options while culture enthusiasts can integrate authentic Maldivian cuisine into their gastronomy through the Holhuashi event. The event will take a closer look at local customs and lifestyles, provide opportunities to sample local products and even learn to prepare ‘Hedhikaa’ Tea from a Maldivian housewife.
Stepping up local experiences further, guests can sign up for a Maldivian coconut oil workshop and discover the diverse applications of coconut oil, not just in Maldivian cuisine but also in traditional herbal medicine called ‘Dhivehi Beys’. Those intrigued by the local tongue can also take up ‘Basmagu’ – an introductory Dhivehi language class or resonate with the beats of Boduberu via a Boduberu workshop. For oceanholics among guests, Nova Maldives brings the Flora and Fauna workshops to find out about the marine life underwater.
The offer also includes moments of solitude and well-being with complimentary yoga and gratitude meditation sessions set amidst the sounds of nature. To truly top off their eco-conscious vacays, guests are free to join in the regenerative activities ranging from coral aquaculture workshops to Nova house reef cleanups. Soulful travellers can make an active contribution during their time on the island by helping to remove crown thorns from the house reef or planting young corals in a protected nursery with the guidance of the resident marine biologist.
Through these activities, Nova ensures guests give back to the community by leaving the island in a better condition than when they arrived. This allows them to make a difference during their stay while immersing themselves in several awe-inspiring and impactful experiences. In addition to this, Nova has also launched unrivalled discounts on villa rates and its all-inclusive supplement for stays from May till the end of July 2023. Some of the benefits Nova guests can enjoy include:
• Up to 52% discount on all room types and meal plans
• A 30-minute photo shoot session with a printed photo (6x8) per villa per stay
• Daily complimentary group Sunrise Yoga
• Complimentary use of snorkelling fins and masks during the stay (applicable for all-inclusive only)
