Our environment is incredibly precious. We're lucky enough to have resorts in some of the most beautiful, enchanting and biodiverse parts of the planet. So the idea that our presence in those places should detract in any way from the natural wonders is unthinkable.
From the very beginning, Soneva has been about preserving the natural landscape, and conserving nature's resources. We realise there is an obvious dichotomy between providing luxury holidays in far away lands and pressing environmental concerns but we are fully committed to finding a healthy balance between the two. Responsible tourism is still a relatively fledgling concept and we are one of the international pioneers.
We have instituted a SLOW LIFE programme that includes strict policies on a wide range of environmental factors from air quality to water management. Marine conservation is a particular passion of ours. Without healthy, biodiverse oceans, life as we know it would simply not exist.
The future of our planet is determined by how we act today. That's why, every year, our founder Sonu Shivdasani invites world authorities on energy conservation, eco-tourism and many other fields to the Soneva Sustainable Future Symposium, an international forum for debate.
