Vakkaru Maldives launches 'Tales of the Ocean' Easter Celebration
Best Family Hotels in the Maldives
19 January, 2021
This year marks the 10th anniversary of Baa Atoll being designated a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, and Vakkaru Maldives takes this opportunity to pay tribute to the wonders of the ocean with its ‘Tales of the Ocean’ Easter Celebration.
From 1 to 7 April 2021, guests can expect delectable ocean-themed feasts, exceptional excursions and plenty of family-friendly activities designed to introduce our younger guests to the beautiful world that surrounds them. As ever, ensuring we are doing all we can to take care of you is a priority at Vakkaru, so Merana Spa will also host special events galore, alongside a special residency by wellness expert Domingos Folgado.
An upbeat highlight of the week, a Baa 50 Shades of Blue pool party will draw inspiration from the colours and vibrancy of Baa Atoll. Regular performances by Aura Band, fire shows and LED art shows will add excitement too. For families, sandcastle-building competitions, family movie night, Easter egg hunts and tennis tournaments are on offer, alongside Maldivian coconut painting and Tales of The Ocean presentation by our Marine Biologist.
Tales of the Ocean will also focus on physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. Resident at the resort from 15 March to 12 April, Domingos Folgado is an internationally recognised wellness consultant, naturopath and therapist with expertise in traditional medicines and massage techniques. He will offer innovative treatments including Chakra Hot Stone Aromatherapy, Facial Rejuvenation with Acupuncture and Fire Cupping Therapy. Domingos also offers personal training sessions with various focuses to reach the guest’s personal fitness goals including core conditioning, weight loss and flexibility.
Those treatments will be offered at overwater Merana Spa, where Easter activities also include sunset sound healing sessions, Pranayama meditation and Ayurveda, alongside complimentary yoga sessions by our resident yogi, Anna Tsoy, at the overwater yoga pavilion.
Guests will be able to discover the beauty of the spectacular seascape that surrounds them in a variety of ways. Departing from dive centre Splash, boats take only 15 minutes to reach Turtle Reef, where turtle sightings are virtually guaranteed. Scuba diving and snorkelling excursions can easily be arranged, as can sunset cruise, dolphin-quest, big game fishing and private yacht charters.
