Get creative at Jumeirah Maldives Olhahali Island with the MURACA Art Studio. Offering a diverse range of activities, both couples and families alike can unleash their artistic flair with a range of exciting art-related activities while enjoying an idyllic island escape. 

Inspired by the mesmerising coral reefs and surrounding crystalline turquoise waters of the North Malé Atoll, Jumeirah Maldives Olhahali Island’s MURACA Art Studio invites guests to explore their creative side in a playful and unique space. From immersive watercolour workshops to engaging seashell jewellery-making sessions, the resort’s resident artist is on hand to assist and inspire. Dive into the art of T-shirt painting, explore the intricacies of paper crafting, or craft a personalised tote bag – each activity is a brushstroke on the canvas of unforgettable memories. Leave with a handmade piece of the Maldives and memories to last a lifetime.

A street market will also be taking place on 05 January 2024, which will champion local artisans and showcase one-of-a-kind artwork, handcrafted treasures, and unique crafts from local talents at the island’s heart. 

Once guests have experimented with their creativity, they can delight in the resort’s luxurious wellness facilities.
