PUBLISHED November 24, 2019

LUX* South Ari Atoll Resort & Villas, recently awarded Leading Eco-Friendly Resort in the Maldives at the South Asian Travel Awards 2019, presents their latest sustainability initiatives: Edible straws, biodegradable cups and plant-based "beef".


The biodegradable straws, made from cooked rice flour, tapioca starch and water, can last up to one hour before they soften and eventually dissolve.


Coffee lovers can also have their favourite ice blends to-go in a biodegradable bamboo cup at the resorts signature Café LUX*. Made of bamboo fibre with biodegradable silicone lids that are dishwasher-friendly, these cups are also in their retail shop for guests to bring home a piece of eco-friendly memento of their tropical getaway.


Embraced by leading brands, tech companies and major news media, the plant-based protein, formally known as Beyond Burgerâ„¢ is now available at three of the resorts eight restaurants to provide additional vegan and kosher options.
