Kuramathi Maldives kicks off extensive nine-day festive programme
Kuramathi Maldives has created an extensive nine-day programme for the festive season.
The season of giving and joy has begun and Kuramathi is all prepared to celebrate one of the biggest festivities of every year; Christmas and the New Year holidays. The programme curated by Kuramathi features activities suitable for both adults and children, from sporting events between team members and guests, to guided sustainable tours, wine tasting and sumptuous gala dinners complete with delicious spreads!
What really stands out this year as a novel experience for guests is a cultural evening to held on December 28. Starting from 9pm until 11pm, the spectacle highlights authentic arts and crafts presented by local artisans in eight unique stalls, ranging from jewellery, ornaments, fruits and vegetable vendors to art paintings.
It also features theatrical performances by talented team members. For instance, Bodu Beru, a significant heritage event consisting of a troupe of local hand drummers, will provide the perfect backdrop for a symbolic ‘large fish’ (otherwise known as Bodu Mas), cleverly designed using coconut palm leaves parading and dancing to rhythmic beats.
A traditional house is also planned to be setup, displaying the way of life of ancestral Maldivians, providing rich insight to the habits of islanders, in a remote location.
“The team of Kuramathi is looking forward to sharing with you an exciting and fun filled festive season,
and we would like to invite you to be part of this,” an announcement by the resort read.
Kuramathi is one of the first resorts to open in the Maldives and is part of Universal Resorts of Universal Enterprises, a 100 percent Maldivian company and the pioneers of tourism in the Maldives.
An emerald jewel in the turquoise Maldivian waters, Kuramathi is a stunning island retreat with acres of luxuriant vegetation surrounded by spectacular beaches tapering into an endless sandbank.
Villas blend contemporary design and nature, and are set on the beach, amongst lush gardens or over water. Four poster beds, open-air bathrooms, rainfall showers or Jacuzzi, large outdoor decks with inviting daybeds or sun loungers, are just some of the creature-comforts enjoyed by guests.
Dining options are diverse with many restaurants, bars and great-value all-inclusive packages, topped off with Maldivian service – welcoming, genuine and friendly.
