Surf Music in Paradise with Jimmy Barnes at Holiday Inn Resort® Kandooma

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Holiday Inn Resort® Kandooma Maldives has held another successful Surf Music in Paradise event, featuring a true legend of music—Jimmy Barnes. The event was all about sharing an up close and personal musical experience with Jimmy and his family band, says Kandooma Maldives in a statement.

The Surf Music in Paradise series presents the soundtrack to surfers lives, shared as live music in idyllic and intimate settings. Jimmy Barnes’ music, both his catalogue from Cold Chisel and solo career has been the backing track to a million surf missions. This event inspired a very special surf trip – one that promised both uncrowded, fun waves – as well as luxury and style, according to Kandooma Maldives.

Jimmy and his family band performed three intimate and exclusive gigs as part of the Surf Music in Paradise series. Guests were also able to meet Jimmy briefly to receive an autographed biography of Jimmy’s book “Working Class Boy” and a professional photographic memento.

Holiday Inn Resort Kandooma, located in South Malé Atoll, is famous for its facilities which cater to various types of travellers, be it families, friends, couples, surfers, divers, or nature lovers. It’s only a 45-minute speedboat ride from Velana International Airport.

Kandoomafushi Island is 13 hectares or about a 20-minute walk around the perimeter. It is located two-thirds down the southeastern edge of the South Malé Atoll. Kandooma has beautiful white sandy beaches around a third of the island for those with kids who love to play in beach sand, or those prefer working on their tans on the beach rather than on the sun loungers around the pool.
