The property’s sustainability started from the ground up with its design elements. The resort was built on an existing sandbank encircling a coral reef on the North Malé Atoll. The ecosystem’s natural beauty inspired the designers’ vision and a marine team studied the conditions to ensure the design wouldn’t negatively impact the local coral reef. The resort also initiated a coral planting project, with plans to cover more than 65,000 feet. The resort relies heavily on solar power and the property recycles and purifies water.

 

The resort also utilizes sustainable practices with its culinary offerings. The seven on-site restaurants and bars use fresh produce from the on-site garden and offer a variety of plant-based menu options. The Ritz-Carlton Spa partners with wellness brand Bamford on an exclusive collection of organic body and skincare products.

Jean-Michel Cousteau’s Ambassadors of the Environment program hosts numerous activities encouraging guests to learn more about the environment, including nature walks, dives and educational discussions. The resort’s Conservation Technology Hub marks the partnership with Loughborough University. Based on the resort, the research unit is a government-approved program that develops drone methods to search for plastics in the ocean and on beaches.

Hotel Montalembert Review

When my daughter, Sharon, traveled to Paris in 2020, a month before the COVID-19 pandemic, she met her friend whose travel agent booked them at Hotel Montalembert. I recognized the name as one of Anne Jousse’s B. Signature Hotels & Resorts Group because I had stayed at its sister property, Hotel Bel Ami, in 2018. That’s where the hands-on, greet-guests-by-name Laurence Guinebretière, general manager of both hotels, (she commutes between the two on foot in about 10 minutes) had described its chic appeal. Sharon concurred. So, the Rive Gauche hotel was high on my list of “must-stays” during my fall 2021 trip to Paris.

Choose São Paulo for Stylish Meetings and Events

Rio de Janeiro, with its mountain- rimmed beaches and balmy weather, might be Brazil’s most iconic city, but São Paulo — or Sampa, as locals affectionately call it — rivals as the economic and cultural capital of South America’s largest country. Justifiably compared to New York, the sprawling metropolis of 12.5 million inhabitants boasts some of the Southern Hemisphere’s best dining, museums and entertainment. From Michelin- starred restaurants to legendary nightclubs that roar until the late morning to exquisite art galleries like MASP, São Paulo exudes endless sophistication and excitement. Cosmopolitan and welcoming, Paulistas (São Paulo locals) speak English well and love to share their hometown’s charms with visitors. As Latin America’s most important financial hub, the city naturally attracts meeting planners with first-rate MICE amenities including convention centers, business hotels and trade show venues.
