One of the most romantic Maldives island Milaidhoo is set to enchant guests this Valentine’s Day with a culinary and mixological spectacle featuring the globally acclaimed Giancarlo Mancino. Hailing from the picturesque village of Pignola in southern Italy, Giancarlo has etched his name as one of the world’s most awarded and respected mixologists. Giancarlo is the creative genius behind Mancino Vermouth, Rinomato Aperitivo, Sprezza RTD, Bocktailed, and Sei Bellissimi, a luxury sparkling bottled cocktail line

On Valentine’s Day, Milaidhoo guests can anticipate tailor-made beverage experiences that transcend traditional mixology, with unexpected flavour combinations and presenting cocktails as edible art forms, offering guests an immersive and visually stunning journey through the world of mixology.

Throughout his residency from 13th to 14th February 2024, Mancino will curate a series of intimate events designed to spark love and curiosity. From vibrant, island-inspired cocktails at sunset to romantic beachside dinners serenaded by the ocean’s whispers, guests will indulge in cocktail paired feasts and can participate in interactive mixology workshops, where guests can share their desires, dreams, and romantic anecdotes, and watch as Giancarlo transforms them into a personalised elixir, capturing the essence of their love story with every drop.

Milaidhoo’s commitment to crafting refined and unique guest experiences finds new expression in this exceptional collaboration with Giancarlo Mancino. In Giancarlo’s masterful hands, Milaidhoo’s story is infused with an extra layer of magic, transforming each sip into a chapter in a love story destined to be cherished forever.

I can’t wait to share my passion and craft unforgettable experiences that ignite the senses and celebrate the power of love in paradise.”

“Having Giancarlo here at Milaidhoo is a true honour.
