Timeless Festive Memories for Families

Embark on an Easter odyssey with a symphony of culinary journeys crafted by the resort’s  talented team. Capture moments of shared laughter and joy with interactive experiences, mastering the art of creating authentic Indian dishes, crafting tantalising cocktails, or  relishing refreshing mocktails. Opt for a sun-kissed family sandbank picnic or an enchanting  sunset wine tasting. On Good Friday, experience the magic of gliding through the ocean on  a sunset cruise aboard a glamorous yacht, followed by a family beach dinner featuring  seafood mezze delights.

Easter Sunday takes the spotlight at Jumeirah Maldives Olhahali Island, beginning with a  feastful breakfast at the pool-side GLOW restaurant. Families then dive into a day of  celebration at the infinity pool of the resort’s beach club restaurant, Shimmers, with a  family pool party accompanied by a live DJ, delicious finger bites and house-made popsicles.  As the day unfolds, a sophisticated beachfront cocktail party and gala dinner set the stage,  transforming the island to an Easter wonderland, showcasing a sumptuous spread including  smoky and grilled goodness, Japanese-Peruvian fusion delectations, a dedicated kids’ buffet,  and more festive delicacies. The week is punctuated by Easter-themed sweet treats at the  resort’s two favourite spots of all ages – Café Lounge, a coffee house known for its  breathtaking sunset view, and Gelateria, an ice cream shop adored for its collection of over  36 flavours of house-made artisan ice cream and frozen yoghurt.

For a holiday experience that transcends the ordinary, the ultimate Easter package beckons.  Starting the day with an opulent floating breakfast in the villa’s private pool, then hop to a  nearby sandbank for a picturesque picnic. As the afternoon sun bathes the island in warm  hues, families can unwind with a sunset wine tasting experience. The day concludes with a  beachside private BBQ dinner set against the backdrop of the Maldivian night sky.

Tailored Wonders for the Young Explorers

Little travellers are in for a treat with a range of exciting Easter activities. From an Easter  egg decoration class to Easter Olympics, the island with its white powdery sand beach and  lush surroundings serves as a natural Easter playground for them. The resort’s ocean inspired creative space MURACA Art Studio unfolds its artful magic, offering jar candle  making, wood art, egg carton chick craft making, charades, and bunny mask making. Join a  marine talk hosted by the island’s resident Marine Biologist or enjoy an al fresco cinema playing classic Easter family films. Get up close to sea life through large windows of a semi submarine; parents and children of all ages will be impressed by the striking underwater  world around the Olhahali Island.

Inhale Beautiful New Beginnings

Jumeirah Maldives Olhahali Island’s Talise Spa is an overwater sanctuary for unwinding in  the spirit of this occasion of renewal. This secluded oasis presents exclusive experiences for  the entire family, from an out-of-the-ordinary splash Zumba inspired by hopping bunnies, to  stretching sessions on the mesmerising roof terrace overlooking the sea, all guided by the  resident fitness pro. Families are granted a blissful opportunity to bond and restore with a  pampering one-hour massage and a mini facial, for both the parents and the little one.  Mother and daughter can learn from the seasoned therapist in creating their own exfoliating  scrub, which the Talise Spa team will use to revitalise their skins, followed by a 60-minute  Balinese massage.
