Activities & Experiences in the Maldives

07 October, 2022

The Accor Maldives Collection of 5* resorts is inviting guests to experience a different kind of white Christmas this year: one that is laden with white sandy beaches on aquamarine shores, sprinkled in Vitamin D and stretched under the shade of festive palm trees.

Each tropical island resort will be honouring the festivities of Christmas and New Year with both familiar traditions and local celebrations.  From feastful dining experiences and family friendly activities, to legendary island pool parties and beachside fireworks, as well as special guest hosted adventures; the Accor Maldives Collection offers an idyllic end-of-year retreat for all.

Pullman Maldives Maamutaa

For those after an active festive season, guests at Pullman Maldives Maamutaa can up their game during the holidays with an abundance of fitness activities from December 20th to January 2nd.

Guests can flex their competitive side and take on the Pullman team at the annual Beach Volleyball game, or perhaps join the Tug of War. For those wanting to get the endorphins flowing, the Raaveriyaa work-out, based on Maldivian sports and activities, including coconut tree climbing, is an unmissable experience. And for those after a more tranquil experience, aerial yoga and chakra meditation classes at the Panorama beach, ensconced in an alcove of trees, is the ultimate escapism.

With Pullman Maldives’ generous all-inclusive benefits, all guests can eat, drink and make merry to their heart’s content at any of the special buffets at Melange on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve, and New Year’s Day. The holiday spirit follows through with special festive menus available with Mediterranean and Italian inspired cuisine at Souq Oven, and elevated vegetarian and vegan dining at Phat Chameleon.

Raffles Maldives Meradhoo Resort

Guests at Raffles Meradhoo Maldives Resort are invited to join the countdown to Christmas and New Year with the resort’s 18-day line-up of unforgettable festive experiences. The curated schedule of festivities is inspired by the rich marine life surrounding the resort in Gaafu Alifu Atoll; one of the world’s most remote and pristine atolls. Celebrations start with the Christmas tree lighting ceremony where guests will gather at the heart of the island for bubbles and cheer.  From delighting taste buds with the local ‘catch of the day’ at a signature Maldivian-style BBQ on Christmas Day, to dancing under a rainbow of fireworks to the tunes of world-class bands, performers and DJs on New Year’s Eve; the luxury five-star resort offers a romantic retreat to begin a new chapter with stand out memories. 

Beyond the festivities, the legendary butlers will do everything to ensure the guests’ needs are met and Christmas wishes come true.  The purity of the surrounding lagoon continues throughout the resort where Marine Butlers are on hand to guide guests on snorkelling tours of the two house reefs.  Further out at sea, days can be spent up close with tiger sharks and cruising at sunset. For guests looking for a balance of relaxation and adventure, freediving Master Bastien Soleil, has developed a brand new learning technique which focuses on personal wellbeing through aquatic sensations. An underwater exercise that is accessible to anyone, providing an easy yet a breath-taking journey into a whole new world underwater to rediscover oneself. For some down time, the resort’s over water spa oasis offers a wide range of treatments inspired by the natural soul of the island’s surroundings.

A stay between 22 December 2022 and 8 January 2023 starts from £2650 (excluding taxes) per night based on two people sharing and includes daily breakfast at Thari or Yuzu, a dedicated 24-hour butler service, WiFi internet, welcome amenities and drinks (Maldivian Sling), use of snorkelling equipment during stay, daily Raffles bottled water and non-motorized water sports.
