Festive Highlights 2023: Camp Standard at The Standard, Huruvalhi Maldives 

3 mins read

This festive season, The Standard, Huruvalhi Maldives has put a festive twist on the best Camp Standard activities, with three weeks of exciting events and activities. From 20 December to 7 January, guests can immerse in all things Maldivian. From wellness moments to watersports, live entertainment and delicious feasts, the programme 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, with 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 delve into Maldivian folklore, the little ones will have one request only; the Lil’ Shark Kids Cub.

In line with the property’s environmental values, the ‘Save the Turtle’ programme, 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.  

Those seeking adventure can take part in the Snorkeling Safari & Turtle Expedition, a guided educational snorkeling session led by Mr. Salty and the talented marine team. Guests can watch the sky turn gold and witness the beauty of dolphins in their natural habitat on the Sunset Dolphin Cruise. Families can discover the thrill of motorised and non-motorised water sports, or explore the depths with diving options at 40 different dive points around the resort.

The resort invites guests to embark on a culinary adventure with a variety of themed dining experiences throughout the week. From Food Street’s tantalising array of Asian Cuisine to Arabian Delicacies, Seafood Market, and Mediterranean Tastes, each experience will be a delightful voyage of flavours. Diners can 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.

The resort is offering a Stowaway package that includes a range of special perks and prices including free seaplane transfers, 20% off of all restaurants and bars, a 20% discount at The Standard Spa, weekly house reef snorkel tours and more.
