Regarded as the premier night of excellence in the travel industry of Maldives, the Maldives Travel Awards were created to celebrate the commitment, excellence, and expertise in the Maldivian Tourism Industry. First launched in 2012, this was the 8th edition of these prestigious awards, a product of the Maldives Association of Travel Agents and Tour Operators, MATATO.

With its convenient location, within 10 minutes of Velana International Airport and the capital of Malé, Kurumba is an ideal destination for meetings, incentives, conferences, and events. Kurumba has had the privilege to organize numerous events over the years since its opening in 1972, ranging from formal state dinners and visiting dignitaries to regional corporate workshops and international MICE events.

The Bougainvillea Hall is Kurumba’s main convention hall. Its high ceilings give the well-appointed room an open feel, without pillars obscuring attendees’ views. This meeting space caters for up to 200 guests in a variety of layouts, and in addition, an adjacent VIP lounge is connected to the main conference hall and can be divided into two spaces. Suitable for up to 60 guests, this space is perfect for breakouts, a rest area for speakers or for smaller meetings.

Kurumba was the very first private island resort in the Maldives when it opened its doors in 1972 in the Indian Ocean archipelago of the Maldives. Opened by four young Maldivians on an uninhabited coconut plantation island in October 1972, Kurumba marked the beginning of the tourism industry in the country.
