Theatrical Dining for the First Time in Maldives at Oaga Art Resort

20 February, 2023

An all-inclusive getaway near Male, Oaga Art Resort has premiered a one-of-a-kind dining experience for Valentine’s Day at their luxury resort in the Maldives. In partnership with their own theatre team at Samaasaa the specialty restaurant, they introduced a five-course dinner by the beach paired with a live performance of the Maldivian tale of two star crossed lovers “Dhon Hiyala and Alifulhu”, creating an unforgettable evening for the audience.

The theatrical dining experience is a first of its kind in the Maldives, providing guests with a unique and immersive experience that combines exceptional cuisine with a captivating live performance. Oaga Art Resort’s talented chefs, headed by Chef Zuhair, have created a five-course menu that features fresh and seasonal ingredients sourced locally.

The evening began with a cocktail reception on the beach featuring an unplugged performance by local musician Shiuz, followed by an enchanting show that took on a journey through a magical love story. As the audience watched the performance unfold, the waiters presented each course of the meal, each one carefully crafted to delight the senses.

To top off the evening of this Valentine’s Day theatrical dining experience, the local musician Affan performed at the after party. With soft sand under your feet and the gentle sea breeze in the air, it was the perfect setting for a night of passion and love. The resort’s after party provided the perfect end to a magical evening, creating lasting memories to treasure for a lifetime.

Excerpts from audience members’ testimonials that night include; “… I was just telling the waiters, how can you make me cry and then give me chocolate after? I mean, it was a rollercoaster of emotions, really nice” and “Getting to experience visually, it was a very different kind of experience and a very emotional story. I never thought this story could be so emotional, by the end I really felt it.”

Even though the premiere took place on Valentine’s Day, Oaga Art Resort’s Samaasaa theatrical dining experience is available on a scheduled weekly basis. With the premiere of Dhon Hiyala and Alifulhu as the first story telling performance, the resort has plans to elevate the experience with more Maldivian stories.
