This special time of year deserves to be celebrated in style.

In the unfettered paradise, the team at Kanuhura will do whatever they can to ensure that your festive season is everything you could dream of, and more. Allow them to spoil you and your significant other with a romantic dinner set up somewhere special on the island, paired with one of the novel ‘destination dining’ menus, enjoy the thrill of a sunset fishing excursion followed by the preparation of your catch for you or spend a day on the private neighbouring island Jehunuhura, made all the more extraordinary by a festive season beachside BBQ picnic, drinks and games.


Little gypsetters are as important as their parents, which is why Kanuhura has a comprehensive and fun-filled holiday programme for them to have the holiday of a lifetime in the sun while their parents enjoy a little rest and relaxation. From kid-friendly cooking classes, exciting water sports, arts and crafts sessions and festive season-related activities and games to time to write letters to Santa and his surprising arrival on Christmas Day, your kids are sure to have an incredible holiday.

The Christmas and New Year’s Eve programmes curated by Kanuhura are absolutely extraordinary, with something to delight all the guests, young and old. From an array of gastronomic offerings to suit the palates of the diverse gypsetters that include everything from seafood specialities to traditional festive season favourites and end of year cocktails to a spectacular New Year’s Eve ‘White Evening’ beach party, Kanuhura promises you a festive season unlike any other you have experienced before.
