Outrigger Konotta Maldives Resort Announces Wonderful Festive Activities for Christmas and New Year 2019-20

Outrigger Konotta Maldives Resort announces overwhelming festive programmes organized for Christmas and New Year 2019-20. These include pristine beach discoveries, food and beverage spectaculars, fun activities for kids, and plenty of quality relaxation for adults.

The activities will be carried out from 19th December 2019 to 1st January 2020 and will fall under eight great festive themes:


Food & Beverage: Everything from a festive feast on the 25th to a global gourmet voyage, Indian Ocean night, Asian street food fair, barbecue and Boduberu, sunset seafood and sauvignon, wine academy with a guest sommelier, mezze and Arabic grill, and more.

Active lifestyle: Combat festive excess with aqua aerobics, an introduction to paddleboarding, gym fitness lessons, and kayaking around the island.

For Kids: Movie nights under the stars, family sandcastle contests, kids parties, kite flying, hunting for Christmas bells, and, of course, visit Santa Claus in his grotto on Christmas Day.

Body & Soul: Guests can choose from meditation classes, nature walks, aerial yoga, and a full range of pampering options at Navasana Spa, a sanctuary within a sanctuary.

For Adults: Live chill-out sessions by the resident DJ, New Year’s Eve party, spa, wine, mixology, dining on the beach, and a sunset cocktail reception with management.

Mother Nature: Guests can get the opportunity to join a marine talk with the resort’s marine biologist, say hello to a sea turtle, or give back to nature by joining a desert island clean-up and snorkel trip – all activities are part of Outrigger’s OZONE global marine conservation commitment.

Out of the Ordinary States of Being: Uniquely memorable experiences including local island excursions, renewal of vows, sunken beach table dining by candlelight, picnic on a sandbank, cooking classes, or escaping in a dhoni traditional boat to be a desert island castaway for a day.

Festive People: A chance for guests to chill with the festive people who will make it a particularly memorable time of year on Konotta Island: Matty Wainwright (DJ), Christopher Long (chef), Bijaya Kumar (yoga and fitness trainer), Reena and Rashfa (Coral Kids Club supervisors), and Santa Claus (no introduction required). A mixologist and sommelier will be joining too.

“Each year we work with Santa and his elves to create festive magic for families and couples who want to unwind in a pristine beach setting at Christmas,” John Allanson, General Manager of the resort said. “Outrigger promises a magical experience where you can forget the winter cold and celebrate in style.”

The private island of Konotta is located 211 miles (340 kilometres) to the south of Malé. It is conveniently accessible via a 55-minute flight from Malé to Kaadedhdhoo Airport followed by a scenic 30-minute luxury speedboat journey.
