Kurumba Maldives celebrates 46th anniversary
On October 3, 1972, Kurumba Maldives opened its doors to the first tourists who visited the Maldives. This marked the beginning of a romance where the whole world fell in love with the beautiful sun, sea and sand of the Maldives. Since then, Maldives has become one of the most sought after dream destinations in the world, attracting over 1.3 million tourists annually.
Last week, Kurumba Maldives celebrated the 46th anniversary of this wonderful beginning.
The celebrations began with a BBQ cooking competition between guests and management team at Kandu Bar. Later in the afternoon, a mini-Olympics took place, where the participants found their very own Micheal Phelps (tanned and brown version) at the Water Sports Centre with snorkel equipment relay, ping-pong games and bathrobe challenges. After the fun and games, everyone joined the Management Cocktail at Athiri for drinks and to relax by the beach against the sounds of breaking waves and a setting sun.
The day finally concluded with lively cultural dances at the Conference Hall after dinner. It paid off not to stuff too much at dinner because every ounce of energy was needed to swing those hips to the rhythm and beats of music from around the world.
Kurumba, the very first resort in the Maldives, is set on a tropical island in the North Male Atoll, conveniently located a brief 10-minute speedboat ride away from the main airport.
Kurumba draws on its proud 46 years of history, charismatic personality and heartfelt service, to offer compelling and diverse experiences amidst a stunning island setting.
The resort offers an array of eight styles of accommodation, ranging from comfortable Superior rooms to the spacious Royal Residence, spread among the island’s lush tropical gardens with easy access to the beach. With eight different restaurants and four bars to choose from.
Kurumba will charm you with its unparalleled choice of dining experiences and a wide range of recreation activities and entertainment; all the while maintaining idyllic spaces of relaxation to create the perfect balance for a holiday in paradise, perfect for honeymooners and family alike.
