With ROBINSON Club Noonu, TUI Group’s premium club brand opens its second holiday resort in the Maldives today. The newly built resort, located on the 130,000 sqm island around 200 km north of the capital Malé, shows how architecture and technology can make a valuable contribution to climate protection.
Energy efficiency has been a pivotal element right from the design phase for the water and beach villas. The buildings have been insulated to keep their interior as cool as possible. Thanks to the resulting moderate room temperatures, air conditioning requirements for the rooms are automatically reduced. The resort also features modern heat recovery, efficient hot water supply, innovative, centrally controlled air conditioning as well as high-performance sewage treatment to enhance sustainability. The island’s fresh water requirements are met by means of a sea water desalination system combined with a soda factory: Osmosis is used to produce drinking water, which is turned into sparkling water by adding minerals and carbonic acid. The sparkling water is then filled into glass bottles. This has eliminated the need to transport and dispose of around 480,000 plastic bottles a year. These measures therefore cut not only consumption, which is good for the climate, but also save costs.
Pure holiday pleasure
For the guests staying at ROBINSON Club Noonu, these technical measures are largely invisible. They simply enjoy the view over the sea offered by all 150 rooms of the hotel. Around two thirds of the rooms additionally feature a private pool. The lagoon with the resort’s own reef offers ideal conditions for snorkelling or scuba diving to discover the marine biodiversity. A main restaurant, speciality restaurant and Teppanyaki restaurant as well as two bars cater to the guests’ wishes and preferences. Children look forward to exciting events in the ROBY® CLUB, while adults can relax at the beach, in the infinity pool or the WellFit®-Spa or work out in the gym.
