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 Snorkelling 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 flav5-nightours. 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.
