Jumeirah Vittaveli to Host Festive Celebrations for Whole Family
Best Family Resorts near Malé Airport
2 December, 2019
Jumeirah Vittaveli will celebrate the festive season in the Maldives with unique experiences, live performances and culinary excellence curated for the whole family.
The guests looking to escape to tropical shores this festive season will not only enjoy the sand beneath their feet at the luxury Jumeirah Vittaveli resort but are set to experience unique activities and entertainment in keeping with the most wonderful time of the year.
Located in the South Male Atoll, the exclusive 5-star resort with its 90 suites and villas will commence the festivities with the lighting of its Christmas Tree on December 22 before its in-house choir takes to the stage on the 24 and 25 for the resort’s annual carol singing tradition. In the past, Santa has made surprise appearances on a jet-ski and by catamaran, and it is hoped he will delight kids staying in the resort on December 25 once again.
Live performances and music will also get the resort into the swing of the festive season with everything from ballet to acrobatics and even a touch of magic. A resident five-piece band, saxophone soloist and DJ will entertain guests from December 24 to January 7 at venues across the island paradise. The party will continue from New Year’s Eve through to New Year’s Day at Samsara restaurant where a decadent limited-edition menu will be served to celebrate on both days.
The culinary team will be offering up fresh oysters, lobster, tiger prawns as well as suckling pig and a range of other delicacies.
At the stroke of midnight, the island’s lagoon will be lit up by a mesmerising firework show to ring in the New Year, whilst guests are invited to party beachside, with molecular cocktails and champagne. The theme of the NYE celebrations will be the Great Gatsby with guests invited to dress in roaring 20’s style or take advantage of the in-house tailor to create a Charleston style dress or dapper suit.
Jumeirah Vittaveli’s General Manager Abhijit Ghosh is stating: “Our team is excited to surprise our guests with this year’s festive celebrations – the Christmas tree will be a highlight onto itself, and the Great Gatsby style New Year’s festivities are the extravagant icing on top! It is a pure joy to see the enthusiasm of my team in making sure everything is ready for a joyous festive holiday and am looking forward to welcoming guests for this magical time of the year.”
This year Jumeirah Vittaveli will showcase a progressive journey from exclusive vintage drinks to festive nibbles and a lavish dinner buffet for the festive galas, planned for Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Russian Orthodox Christmas on January 6. On other nights, a Louis Roederer crystal champagne dinner at Cuvée and an oyster and caviar night at Fenesse await guests who are eager to excite their palate.
For travellers looking to disconnect over the holiday season, visiting holistic practitioner Isaac Vidjrakou will be at Talise Spa at Jumeirah Vittaveli with a range of practical techniques to help encourage mindfulness and wellbeing in everyday life including masterclasses in breathing, meditation and yoga, as well as his signature Saki Massage.
For children, the Kuda Koli Kids Club will host a range of fun-filled festive activities to make it their most memorable holiday season yet. From Christmas t-shirt painting and a festive scavenger hunt to gingerbread house-making, there’s something on every day to keep young minds entertained.
