Kanuhura Maldives sponsors Condé Nast Party at Arabian Travel Market
Maldives was featured at the Condé Nast Party of the ongoing Arabian Travel Market (ATM) as Kanuhura Maldives co-sponsored the glamorous event.
US-based luxury travel magazine Condé Nast Traveler’s Middle East edition hosted the party on Tuesday as part of ATM, which began Monday in Dubai. The party was attended by travel and tourism industry professionals from around the world, visitors and travel media representatives.
At the party held at the city resort of Palace Downtown, Kanuhura hosted a raffle draw called the Golden Coconut. The winner was presented with a voucher for a five nights stay at Kanuhura Maldives.
A 125-strong delegation from the Maldives has laid out a comprehensive display of its world-renowned tourism products at ATM, which would conclude on Thursday, with an emphasis on linking up with airlines to jointly promote the country’s tourism industry.
Founded in 1994, ATM is now recognised as the largest travel trade show in Middle East, showcasing over 2,800 products and destinations from around the world to over 26,000 buyers and visitors every year. Apart from usual business meetings, this year’s fair includes special events such as speed networking sessions for industry stakeholders and travel media.
Located at the heart of one of the most spectacular Maldives atolls, Kanuhura is considered one of the most iconic barefoot beach resorts in the Indian Ocean. Part of the Mauritius-based hotel and leisure group Sun Resorts, Kanuhura hosted its first guest in 1999.
After 15 years of glorious history, Kanuhura closed on August 1, 2015 for a year-long major renovation project. The project worth USD42 million completed late last year and Kanuhura welcomed its new customers on December 19.
A reimagining of the resort, which includes the acquisition of neighbouring Masleggihura uninhabited island, positions it for the latest trend travellers have identified as Gypset; part gypsy in their drive for freedom and jetset, reflected in their wealth and craving for luxury living. The gypset muse of Kanuhura is Erin Wasson, famous top model and face representant of Maybelline.
The new rooms are luxury villas and suites with unusual elegance and furnished with natural materials with a touch of refinement and modernism. Whether you stay on the sunrise or sunset side of the island, you will be overwhelmed by the breathtaking view of the sea. The water villas have a private terrace with private access to the lagoon.
With its seven restaurants and three bars, Kanuhura Maldives will make you discover various cuisines from all over the world such as Italy, Brazil and the Maldives.
