The Maldives, undoubtedly, remains a traveller’s favourite, particularly during the year-end season. After all, when a nation comes blessed with white sand beaches and azure blue waters, it’s hard to resist the allure. These hotels and resorts in the Maldives have banked upon this charm and elevated the experience further, courtesy bespoke year-end packages. By Bayar Jain

Fun, fresh, and vibrant are the words that best describe the year-end festivities that await at Kandima Maldives. Ready to ‘glow’ this holiday season, the stylish getaway is beginning the celebrations on December 22 itself with a Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony accompanied by carols at the Breeze Beach here. The following day the Glow Kingdom will unveil at the Forbidden Bar where one can enjoy glow art graffiti. While on Christmas, Santa Claus will play games and give out presents to the younger guests; the older guests can sip on cocktails and dance to Latin beats at the Breeze Bar the next day. The last few days of 2020 will be reserved for snorkelling, movie nights, cocktail-making classes, and R&B nights. On New Year’s Eve, one can countdown to midnight with dinner and a fireworks display.
It’s going to be a non-stop party well into 2021 at the newly-opened OZEN RESERVE BOLIFUSHI. Starting December 22 to January 6, the tropical paradise will come alive with a bouquet of experiences almost every hour. Think sound healing classes; mixology sessions; Christmas tree lightning; aqua yoga; belly dancing; egg nog and mulled wine session; snorkelling to a shipwreck; fish feeding; water balloon piñata; and more.
Shifting the focus on family and friends, Kurumba Maldives is gearing to fast-track into 2021 on a positive note. At the private island, guests can feast on an exquisite Christmas Eve dinner featuring festive delights; while the little ones can come together to decorate the Christmas tree. On December 25, Santa will ride into the premises, post which everyone can cruise around the island. Closer to the year-end, the resort will celebrate with a New Year’s Gala Night, the theme of which will be ‘white’.
This festive season, Reethi Beach Resort is set to bid adieu to 2020 with an exclusive New Year’s Eve gala dinner. Picture classy wines and lobster dinners laid out in an island ambience, with servings of sumptuous Maldivian and international cuisines to choose from. Plus, each of the open-air restaurants and bars here bring with it an inherent safety net, which is further enhanced by the hygiene protocols guaranteed by the resort. Sounds like the ideal mix for a relaxed year-end, doesn’t it?
Customisation and bespoke fun lies at the heart of every year-end experience awaiting at Heritance Aarah. Guests can choose to spend the last days of 2020 by partaking in the resort’s pre-planned festivities or create a personal itinerary of their own. From festive barbecue dinners on the beach to relishing succulent turkey dishes, each experience will be underlined by Maldivian hospitality, signature to the resort.
