Unforgettable end-of-year getaways are on the agenda at the five-star Dusit Thani Maldives Resort for the 2022-23 season.
The season starts with illuminations on Wednesday, 21 December, as guests gather for a traditional Christmas tree lighting ceremony at Sand Bar, complete with canapés and cocktails.
More celebrations follow on Christmas Eve, with sunset drinks and a special dinner starring festive dishes from around the world at The Market. The big day kicks off with a leisurely Champagne breakfast and a visit from Santa on the beach.
The energy stays high throughout the season with White Parties at Sand Bar and a family-friendly celebration at The Maldives’ biggest infinity pool. Meanwhile, gourmands will enjoy a selection of special dinners, from a lobster barbecue served by the sea on 21 December to a Wine & Dine menu of delectable dishes paired with wines from around the world, served on Christmas Day and 2 January.
The ever-popular Thai Street Food Festival returns to award-winning Benjarong restaurant with authentic Siamese flavours at live cooking stations, and Amazonian Night promises junglethemed banqueting in a canopy-covered South American wonderland. New culinary adventures this year include a Mongolian BBQ and Hawaiian Beach Night at The Market.
Younger guests and families come together on 28 December for the Kids Carnival on the beach – an afternoon of exciting activities, from sack, spoon, and dizzy races to volleyball, games, and musical chairs. For those seeking a more peaceful pace, a complimentary yoga and sound bath meditation session encourages a sense of renewed bliss. Devarana Wellness also presents a range of special spa offers.
When it comes to New Year’s Eve, the resort pulls out all the celebratory stops with a rustic tropical beach party in a stunning setting festooned with island flora and featuring a range of spectacular entertainment. The Chef Parade kicks off the evening, followed by traditional Maldivian performances, a sizzling Latin dance show by three-time Norwegian champions Lars and Vivian, and fireworks at midnight. DJ Oly (ranked among the Top 50 Best Female DJs in Asia) fills the dance floor with after-party hits.
The festive season comes to a close with the celebration of the Orthodox Christmas marked by a special cocktail party and sumptuous feast. “The team and I are excited to welcome our guests for festive wonders and sparkling celebrations to ring in the New Year,” said General Manager Jacques Leizerovici.
