PUBLISHED April 23, 2023 | updated April 23, 2023 04:56

As an award-winning hospitality brand and dedicated to delivering unparalleled guest experiences, Capella Hotel Group takes great pride this Earth Day in its commitment to implementing sustainable food and beverage initiatives throughout all its properties. These initiatives perfectly align with the increasing demand among modern travellers to make more eco-conscious choices. 

Patina Maldives, Fari Islands is the inaugural flagship property from sophisticated new lifestyle brand Patina Hotels & Resorts, the latest hospitality concept by Capella Hotel Group. As part of Patina’s commitment towards reliance on renewable energy, plans are in place to expand its solar plant to provide 50 percent of the resort’s energy needs for its F&B needs and beyond by 2030.  Future plans also include investing in long-term blue carbon partnerships and adding solar panels onto the beach villas in addition to the water villas. 

Patina also looks to effect lasting change and does so through partnerships and creative guest programming focused on coral propagation. In partnership with their partner for ceramic tableware Kevala Ceramics, who individually handcraft each piece in Bali, Indonesia, the resort has introduced the use of handmade ceramic frames as a natural alternative to other materials that are widely used. The resort's marine biologists, Oshin Christopher, along with the guests, have completed 40 coral frames, 30 ceramic structures, and planted 1,500 fragment corals and counting into the house reef.

Capella Hotel Group has taken significant steps to minimize its environmental footprint. In addition to its strategic partnership with Earth Check, the leading scientific benchmarking certification and advisory group for travel and tourism, Capella Hotel Group has set Science Based Targets, in line with the Paris Climate Agreement, to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. To achieve these targets, Capella and Patina properties have implemented a range of F&B sustainability initiatives that support sustainable food sourcing, waste reduction, and other beneficial measures.

The initiatives outlined demonstrate Capella Hotel Group's dedication to promoting responsible tourism and creating a more sustainable future for the hospitality industry.
