Crown & Champa Resorts Festive Season celebrations are an unforgettable experience in the Maldives

January 22, 2018

We believe in beautiful destinations, authentic connections with loved ones and spending quality time together. What better place to do this over the Festive Season than at one of the Crown & Champa Resorts in the Maldives.

If you weren’t here, We Missed You and would love to see you soon!

If you were here, we hope you enjoyed every minute as much as we did.

Come island hopping with us as we reminisce about the festive season.

Christmas Eve on Kuredu Island Resort & Spa started with the switching on of the lights, Christmas dinner and a sultry snow party. Santa arrived on Christmas Day on a jet ski to hand out gifts and ended off the excitement with a Beach BBQ Dinner.

The fun continued after Christmas Day with the Christmas Crab Race, a relaxed Christmas Movie and a scrumptious stroll through the Christmas Street Market, which led up to the annual Kuredu Gladiator Fight & Fire Poi. The final hours of 2017 at Kuredu were rung in with a New Year’s dinner and an epic pool party.

The enchanting Hurawalhi Island Resort was a paradise of Christmas celebrations with extravagant cocktails, a picturesque gala dinner and beach party to match.

The island’s New Year’s Eve was an unforgettable gala dinner and tropical soirée with bubbles from Tattinger, followed by a champagne brunch on new Year’s Day.

Veligandu Island Resort & Spa partied the festive season away with delicious dinners, lively entertainment, hilarious games of couple’s lip reading and chill-out saxophone sessions, just to name a few. All guests who purchased a bottle of champagne during New Year’s Eve took part in a festive Champagne Lucky Draw for a chance to win the grand prize of a 7-night stay at Veligandu Island Resort & Spa and more.

Vilamendhoo Island Resort & Spa kicked off the festivities with gingerbread house building, Christmas and New Year’s greeting card crafts, Christmas movies and toy making with coconut leaves

On Christmas Eve Santa arrived bearing gifts for the little ones, with harmonious Christmas Carols by the island choir with the night ending in a Christmas Gala Dinner and exuberant party.

The New Year’s countdown was celebrated with cocktails, a gala dinner, a party filled with giveaways and best wishes for 2018.

If you know Meeru Island Resort & Spa, then you know there was something for everyone this festive season. Beginning with a journey through the history and culture of the Maldives, nature walks on the island, chill-out sessions and live bands, canoe races and a treasure hunt for kids.

Christmas Eve saw Santa arrive by boat to surprise the kids with gift. The celebration continued with a night of cocktails, a gala dinner and a chance to dance the night away at the annual party.

The countdown to 2017 was the perfect time for a sunset chill-out session, gala dinner and beach party. New Year’s Day started with the fun-filled annual Meeru Guests Vs. Staff Football.

Our adults-only island, Komandoo Island Resort & Spa, had a charming festive season with a cocktail making class, Santa’s arrival, a Christmas dinner and party on Christmas Eve.

As a build-up to New Year’s Komandoo had interactive Maldivian Handcrafts Class, yoga, fruit craving and sushi making before setting off on the last sunset cruise for 2017. New Year’s Eve was celebrated in style with a masquerade ball and champagne countdown.

Here’s to 2018, a year filled with excitement, magic and adventure in the Maldives.

See you soon!
