WELCOME TO THE OZONE
OCEAN + CORAL CONSERVATION AT OUTRIGGER RESORTS
Our link to the ocean is unbreakable.
As The Premier Beach Resort Brand in the World, our ocean’s health is intricately linked to our success. Therefore, its stewardship is our responsibility. And we take that seriously.
The Outrigger ZONE
Our OZONE conservation initiative serves to provide enriching experiences for our guests, hosts and local communities; as well as to ensure that our properties actively do their part to protect our oceans and help them to thrive for generations to come.
Coral reef restoration
In partnership with governments, private industries and conservation organizations – the OZONE initiative protects our coral reefs through hands-on coral planting opportunities, beach clean-ups and other activities to directly improve the health of the ocean. Together, Outrigger guests and employees have successfully planted, monitored and protected more than 100 football fields’ worth of coral since its launch.
Some chemicals in common sunscreen brands can be harmful to coral reefs and marine environments. Fortunately, there are mineral sunscreens that reflect the sun’s rays using ingredients like zinc oxide or titanium dioxide. We've been making these types of “reef-safe” sunscreens available to our resort guests since 2014.
