A Maldivian evening at Kuramathi
With over 12 restaurants and seven bars encapsulated on a space of 1.8 kilometres of natural bliss, Kuramathi Maldives has an existing recipe of dining and fresh evening entertainment for its guests. Ranging from starlit discos, live music performed by the resident band along with an acoustic session, to movie nights on the beach screening cinema favourites for adults and kids alike, the island offers a choice of liveliness and animation.
This February, Kuramathi introduces a ‘Maldivian Evening’ on every Sunday at Fung Bar.
A cultural showmanship of ‘bodu beru’ (literally translated as a ‘big drum’, or ‘bodu beru’ in local dialect) will be performed by a troupe of team members as they sway to the rhythmic beats. The songs are narrated in Dhivehi, the native tongue and it broadly speaks of tales shared by ancestral Maldivians on fishing journeys to romantic poetry and communal subjects from our rich history.
“Guests who would like to engage in this cultural experience are more than welcome to do so, and can give a shot to dance to the melodic grooves at Fung Bar, every Sunday at 22:00hrs,” an announcement by the resort read.
“P.S – Feel free to wear a ‘feyli’ (local term for the special sarong) to blend in better during this event!”
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.
