Eco-friendly festive celebrations at Grand Park Kodhipparu Maldives
Grand Park Kodhipparu Maldives has hosted an extraordinary line-up of events for this festive season.
For this festive season, creativity at Grand Park kodhipparu has gone to a whole new level.
As part of its commitment to protect the environment, the resort initiated several eco-friendly practices to contribute to the future of this unique destination.
Chief amongst those initiatives is an eco-friendly Christmas tree. It’s not just a tree, but an eco-friendly tree made from waste bottles collected over the past year.
In addition to the eco-friendly tree, Grand Park Kodhipparu carved and painted its festive decorations in-house. These decorations — a project led by Director of Engineering Prakash Adumbil — are on display throughout the resort, from food and beverage outlets to beach club and The Spa.
Festive celebrations at Grand Park Kodhipparu kicked off on December 23 and will continue until January 1. These celebrations include a tree lightening ceremony, special Christmas themed buffet, culinary experiences by guest Chef Bernard Leprince, surprise Santa visit, wine and champagne dinners, as well as a special countdown party December 31.

From themed buffets to exclusive culinary journeys, to soothing Spa treatments, memorable stays and spectacular celebrations,” Raffaele Solferino, General Manager at Grand Park Kodhipparu, was quoted in a statement, as saying.
“We wish you a harmonious Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year.”
