Male, Maldives ( April 3, 2013 - Kurumba, the iconic first resort in the Maldives, has launched a dramatic new corporate identity to introduce its US$3 million refurbishment.

Incorporating a whimsical paintbrush effect and contemporary typography, The Maldives in Full Colour identity plays on Kurumba's dynamic personality, talking directly to its rich 40-year history, uniquely colourful character and multi-dimensional offering.

The new identity, created by specialist brand and communications agency QUO, will be brought to life through the resort's new website, a brand movie and in all resort collateral.

It follows a comprehensive upgrade to Kurumba's key facilities, which began in 2011 and was completed at the end of 2012.

With the aim of creating a more contemporary, inviting experience for guests, the refurbishment saw the application of lighter tones, exceptional furnishings and playful touches to the 154 guestrooms and 18 villas, while public areas were also treated to a major redesign incorporating a fresh design with splashes of colour, new fittings and lighter treatments.
