CELEBRATE A CARNIVAL AROUND THE WORLD FESTIVE SEASON AT JUMEIRAH VITTAVELI

Maldives, 6 November 2017: Whisk your family away to a tropical wonderland at Jumeirah Vittaveli in the Maldives and celebrate the colourful festive season.

The resort welcomes guests with live entertainment, lavish gala dinners and exhilarating activities inspired by events around the world including the grand Venetian and Rio de Janeiro carnivals.
 
The fun starts in December and runs until the first week of January, when a glittering Russian Christmas event closes the festivities. The carnival theme will be embraced by the Kuda Koli Kids Club, the Talise spa, the Dive Center and the restaurants & bars, so guests can enjoy the festive spirit across the island.
 
Families and couples can admire performances by the Favera dance troupe, watch in awe as the resort’s fire dancers showcase the Art of Poi, party on the beach to the resident DJ, or enjoy a live concert by Simon & Eva.
 
Amit Majumder, General Manager, Jumeirah Vittaveli, said: “Over at our French fine dining restaurant Fenesse, we are introducing three new venues, the Cyan over-water lounge, Cuvée, the wine library, and Fumée, a cigar, shisha and vaping lounge. Our main bar has been remodelled and offers an extended entertainment and lounge area. The festive spirit has always been strong at Jumeirah Vittaveli and our team takes pleasure in surprising guests with special décor in their villa.”
 
The traditional Christmas tree lighting ceremony will unveil the resort’s floating Christmas tree. Last year’s glowing-from-within tree was wrapped in foil (collected from the kitchens throughout the year) which was then recycled after the festive season.
 
The Kuda Koli Kids Club will amaze little ones with stained glass painting, gingerbread house making, snowman building and Christmas tree decorating. Santa will make a show-stopping entrance on 25 December, deliver goodies and meet and greet the children and the young at heart.
 
Samsara Beach will offer festive gala dinners on Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve. Executive Chef Francis Cornelious will serve delicacies including Vindaloo (made with his mother’s secret recipe), roasted butterball turkey, Christmas stolen and a special Christmas cake, made from the fruit, nuts, and spirits mix that was prepared in a fun ceremony with guests in October this year.
 
At the overwater venue Fenesse, guests can indulge in gourmet set menus including the  world’s best black caviars – Beluga, Ossetra, and Sevruga - and selection of fine oysters including the Belon Oyster from France, the Gallway Oyster from Ireland and the Tsarskaya Oyster from Cancale in Northern France. Fresh White Alba Truffle will be shaved onto gourmand’s plates at Fenesse. MU Beach Bar & Grill will offer a stone grill with Wagyu grade 9++ Marble beef, cape grim beef and Churrascaria. Why not try the famous Gold menu at signature Indian restaurant Swarna which offers edible gold?
 
On New Year’s Eve, a carnival party at Samsara Beach will offer a gala menu, live music acts, a stunning fireworks display over the lagoon and a Glow-in-the-Dark DJ beach party.
 
For the resort’s Orthodox guests, a lively celebration will take place on 6 January. An enchanting saxophone performance will be followed by LED, fire dance shows and DJ Eva will play into the night. Ded Moroz, the Russian Father Christmas, and his assistant Snegurochka will also visit on 31 December.
