40th Anniversary of Kurumba, Maldives

Kurumba, Maldives, celebrates its 40th Anniversary today as one of the first ever resorts to open in the Maldives in 1972!

A formal black tie dinner will be hosted at the resort with a number of celebrities, media, key past guests and staff. During the evening, there will be presentations and live entertainment for the guests to enjoy.
The opening of Kurumba in 1972 marked the start of the tourism industry that has brought prosperity and progress to the Maldives. From hosting 60 guests a month, Kurumba can now accommodate 14,000 a month. The handful of friends who opened the resort all those years ago has grown into 450 staff, several of whom have been at Kurumba for more than 20 years.

Kurumba has continued with its philosophy of continual improvement and has been recognised with awards such as 'Maldives Leading Hotel' from the World Travel Awards, to the celebrated TUI Holly Award in 2006. Kurumba now boasts room categories from Superior Rooms all the way through to the Kurumba Royal Residence, which has welcomed many dignitaries and heads of state including Bill Clinton and George Bush Senior, and celebrities such as Denise Van Outen, Alicia Keys and David Walliams!
