Park Hyatt Maldives wins the 2012 Green GOOD DESIGN AWARD

The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies, and the Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design have joined forces on two continents to present an innovative and challenging new public award. The Green GOOD DESIGN category identifies the world’s most pioneering examples of sustainable design, and highlights the companies that showcase an ongoing commitment to preserving the environment.

As the Hyatt Group’s first sustainable tourism development, the primary objective was to ensure that the resort was planned, designed and built in an environmentally sensitive manner. Designed by SCDA Architects of Singapore, Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa creatively blends architecturally innovative design with strict environmental standards. The resort is made up of 50 luxurious and contemporary villas, each carefully constructed to ensure no damage to the surrounding coral reef, to the island’s natural vegetation or to the resort’s pristine shoreline.

Pierre Lang, the General Manager of Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa, commented:

“We are extremely proud of the achievement and are delighted that our ongoing commitment to sustainable design has been recognized. We will continue to tread lightly in order to preserve the essence of the destination and will work hard to maintain and develop our environmental and social responsibility programmes. We hope to continue to raise the benchmark and ensure Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa remains on the path to securing a sustainable future for the environment we are in”.

At the same time, we are very proud to have Park Hyatt Maldives in ecoLuxury: it opened in April 2011 and it already reached the 3 Golden Tents in the ecoLuxury Compliance Audit in the category “Seaside Resorts & Private Islands”.
