Experience a tropical Christmas extravaganza at The Standard, Huruvalhi Maldives



Christmas falls during peak season in the tropics of the Maldives, making it the perfect destination to run away to for warm breezes and sunset dinners by the sea. This festive season, The Standard, Huruvalhi Maldives located on Huruvalhi Island in the Raa Atoll, has put a festive twist on the best camp standard activities, with three weeks of exciting events and activities. From December 20th to January 7th, guests can immerse in all things Maldivian culture – from wellness moments to watersports, live entertainment and delicious feasts, the programming offers a December to remember.

Camp Standard began at The Standard, Miami, an adults only property, in 2016. The concept offers an opportunity for guests to connect to their inner child on a weekend ‘camp’, disconnecting from the outside world. Camp Standard is now taking on a new form at The Standard Huruvalhi Maldives, with a festive twist available for all ages.

The festivities will kick off with the annual Christmas Tree lighting ceremony at the beach reception, expect free flowing coconut eggnog, frozen and hot chocolate and live music. The parties will continue with various bonfire nights and beach celebrations for all ages, including the inaugural Camp Standard NYE Countdown.

Young adventurers will have the opportunity to engage in an array of educational and fun experiences. From treasure hunts, to pizza making, art and craft classes and story-telling sessions that dive into Maldivian folklore, the little ones will be tugging at your side with one request only: Lil’ Shark Kids Cub. In line with the property’s environmental values, the “Save the Turtle” program, led by the in-house marine biologist, will educate and inspire the younger generation and a swim with Santa event on Christmas Day will see dreams come true.

For those seeking adventure, look no further than the Snorkeling Safari & Turtle Expedition, a guided educational snorkel led by Mr. Salty and the talented marine team. Or watch the sky turn gold and witness the beauty of Dolphins in their natural habitat on the sunset Dolphin Cruise. Discover the thrill of motorized and non-motorized water sports, or explore the depths with diving options at 40 different dive points around the resort.

Embark on a culinary adventure with a variety of themed dining experiences throughout the week. From Food Street’s tantalizing array of Asian Cuisine to Arabian Delicacies, Seafood Market, and Mediterranean Tastes, each experience will be a delightful voyage of flavours. Dive into the heart of Maldivian culture with authentic Maldivian Food at the opulent Christmas and New Year’s Eve Grand Gala Dinners whilst celebrating the year that has passed in style.

Settle in for all the fun and make the Maldives your home away from home this festive season with the Stowaway package.

The Westin Maldives Miriandhoo Resort celebrates sustainability efforts with Earth Hour



The Westin Maldives Miriandhoo Resort, nestled in the breathtaking Baa Atoll, the first UNESCO Biosphere Reserve site in the Maldives, participated in Earth Hour, a global initiative led by the Worldwide Wildlife Fund for Nature (WWF) to combat climate change.

On the 23rd of March, from 8:30 to 9:30 PM, The Westin Maldives Miriandhoo Resort dimmed non-essential lighting in public spaces, symbolizing its unwavering commitment to environmental sustainability. Guests were encouraged to join this meaningful gesture by turning off lights in their guestrooms. During this period, all guests were invited to join for a captivating acoustic performance at Sunset Beach, where they indulged in specially crafted drinks tailored for this memorable occasion, complemented by candlelight ambiance. 

In addition to its Earth Hour observance, the resort hosted a tree-planting event from 10:30 to 11:30 AM, where guests and associates alike came together to plant trees in designated areas surrounding the resort. This initiative not only contributed to carbon offsetting efforts but also enhanced the natural beauty of the Baa Atoll, enriching the local ecosystem for generations to come.

Beyond Earth Hour, The Westin Maldives Miriandhoo Resort remains steadfast in its dedication to preserving the pristine natural beauty of the Maldives through the establishment of a dedicated Sustainability Committee.
