Vacationing in the Indian Ocean brings a plethora of positive emotions and joyful experiences to millions of tourists. However, the preservation of the environment remains a crucial factor.

Moreover, hotels often provide tourists with appropriate programs aimed at preserving the ecology of the underwater world of the Indian Ocean. Among such hotels is The Fortress Resort & Spa on the southern coast of Sri Lanka, as reported by Travel Weekly.

It is emphasized that most guests of this hotel actively participate in turtle conservation. The hotel staff highlights that many people enjoy engaging in conservation activities because they want to feel that they are making a difference. Guests can learn about the different types of turtles that nest on the beach, their life cycles, and the threats they face.

It is noted that this luxurious resort is focused on the future, specifically the turtles in the surrounding waters. Guests can not only learn more about environmental activities at the turtle hatchery but also get acquainted with endangered hatchlings as part of the "Relax and Release Turtles" project.

Another responsible hotel, Attitude Hotels in Mauritius, is on a mission to connect guests with the ocean. Thousands of visitors have already participated in the marine research center's programs since its inception in 2010, contributing to critical scientific research.

Surrounded by golden beaches, Patina Maldives boasts 90 villas with beach and ocean views, as well as 20 secluded studios nestled among tropical foliage. Moreover, guests of all ages can get creative at a free pottery and coral conservation workshop led by the resort's marine biologist, who can explain how clay structures help restore local reefs.

Patina Maldives' sustainability initiatives are not just for guests either - the resort offers free PADI dive certificates to local children to encourage the next generation to explore the ocean environment.

The Paradise Cove Boutique Hotel in Mauritius offers 75 suites under swaying palm trees, with windows overlooking the sparkling bay. To better understand the bay and how to protect it, guests can visit the Marine Research Center at the sister hotel Lagoon Attitude. In addition to meeting marine biologists, an eco-trail brings tourists closer to turtles, stingrays, and schools of tropical fish. There is also an opportunity to join the regular beach cleanup.

The Ritz-Carlton Maldives in the Maldives has sustainability at its core. Before construction, marine experts studied the site to minimize the impact on the coral reef. Now, staff members work in collaboration with oceanographic researcher and ecologist Jean-Michel Cousteau to invite guests to explore the unique ecosystems of the Maldives. These sessions include activities such as kayaking and snorkeling.

Finally, another hotel, Hilton Seychelles Northolme Resort & Spa in Seychelles, invites tourists to visit a coral nursery to admire the newly grown corals in their aquariums. A snorkeling excursion is also offered to see the newly planted corals.
