The Park Hyatt on Hadahaa Island in the Maldives is gentle on the earth. The design and construction were guided by environmental impact studies prior to implementation. To complement the spirit of environmental stewardship, the design promotes rainwater harvesting, minimises disruption to the corals around the island and preserves and reinforces the existing foliage of the island. Waste treatment plants ensure that pollution of the island is minimised. The Park Hyatt is the first resort in the Maldives to receive Green Globe certification for Building, Planning and Design Standard.
