“Enjoy a lineup of scrumptious menus, special offers, activities and events for the Christmas holidays, as well as a lively celebration for the New Year,” an announcement by the resort read.
“The holiday season is the perfect time to get together with your closest family and friends to celebrate the most festive time of the year. So why not to join us in paradise at Kurumba Maldives?”

A kid’s party will be organised at poolside with special delights, cheerful games and competitions.

A special “Pirates” themed party will mark the beginning of 2018 in spectacular style.
On New Year’s Eve, the celebrations will start with bubbles and welcome cocktails to set the mood for the evening. A comprehensive and lavish buffet will be served in Thila and Vihamanaa restaurants. Guests are invited to dress up to add to the fun and experience a spectacular night with exciting entertainment during dinner, a few surprise performances, and a fabulous awards ceremony especially for guests, including categories such as “Best Dressed”, a raffle draw and prizes to be won.
The party will move into Kandu Bar as the night progresses, with songs from one of the most popular live bands in the Maldives and a mixture of classics and best tunes from our resident DJ.
To welcome 2018, Kurumba Maldives will be serving a complimentary New Year’s Day recovery brunch, from 8am until 2.30pm. On Orthodox Christmas dinner, guests can gather for a hearty buffet, served in Thila with a focus on fresh seafood followed by entertainment in Kandu Bar with a live band.
Kurumba became the very first resort in the Maldives when it opened its doors in 1972.
Kurumba began with 30 huts built of coral and thatched with coconut leaves; the first guests were barefoot backpackers in search of sand, sea and sun. The Maldivian hosts prepared meals informally. Today, the resort is still Maldivian owned and managed.
Kurumba is set on a tropical island in the North Male Atoll, conveniently located a brief 10-minute speedboat ride away from the country’s main airport.
Kurumba draws on its proud 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 amongst the island’s lush tropical gardens with easy access to the beach.
With eight different restaurants and four bars to choose from, Kurumba Maldives will charm you with its unparalleled choice of dining experience 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.
