Are you looking for something a little bit different this Christmas? If so, hang up your woolly Christmas jumper and pull out your bikini because it’s not too late to book a lavish festive escape to Jumeirah Vittaveli in the Maldives.
As if the opportunity to spend Christmas day with your toes in the sand wasn’t enough - to make your escape that little bit more special, Jumeirah Vittaveli have also laid on a jubilant ‘Great Gatsby’ themed festive celebration spanning the entire festive season.
Each day you’ll be invited to don your tuxedos, feather boas and flapper dresses to join a carnival of celebrations that end a momentous 2019 with a bang. Live performances of Charleston and jazz music, aerial silk acrobatics and breathtaking illusions are just some of the ways in which Jumeirah Vittaveli will add magic to the festive season.
To kick off the merriment, celebrations will begin on the 22nd December with a special Christmas Tree lighting ceremony. This is no ordinary Christmas tree either – in previous years, Jumeirah Vittaveli have assembled trees out of coconut shells, recycled bicycle wheels and have even made one out of recycled kitchen wrap that floated on the ocean.
Christmas Eve and Christmas day are guaranteed to be a highlight. On the evening of the 24th you’ll pave the way for Santa’s arrival with a grand celebration complete with live bands, themed performances and revelry to rival the ‘Roaring Twenties’.
On Christmas day you’ll awaken to a surprise entrance from Santa Claus bearing gifts for the little ones. Though how he will arrive this year remains a closely guarded secret, it’s sure to be an exciting occasion for every member of the family. Previously he has arrived by jet-ski or catamaran, and he is always welcomed by the sounds of a Christmas carol choir.
Then, you can take your pick of how you want to fill the day. While your little ones join treasure hunts, make crafts, take part in talent shows or join any of the many watersports activities on offer, you are free to sit back and enjoy a well-earned day of relaxation on the beach.
Later, Jumeirah Vittaveli will lay on an extravagant Christmas dining selection. Perhaps you’ll opt for a traditional buffet at Samasara where you’ll find all the familiar favourites such as turkey, suckling pig and hams as well as exotic selections such as sushi, lobster and crab. Or, maybe you’ll opt for a lavish 9-course fine dining festive meal at Fenesse, a spectacular overwater restaurant.
New Year’s Eve likewise guarantees a day and night filled with excitement. After an extended NYE dinner at Samasara, you can head to B4R for cocktails before slipping into your finery for a night of extravagance, all culminating in a breathtaking fireworks display to mark the beginning of 2020.
