As part of our continued efforts to ensure the high standards of our facilities, we have a scheduled annual maintenance programme for the resort. With this programme, we also strive to offer new and exciting services and facilities for our guests.
Please find details of our maintenance and enhancement projects at Jumeirah Vittaveli:
We are working on enhancing our services & facilities at our main bar Bar-EE. Bar-EE services will be temporarily moved to the Bar-EE 2.0 location under the marquee on the other side of the main pool.
The new Bar-EE will be extended to feature a wider covered area, including a separate annex for our dedicated Shisha bar, and a permanent dedicated Entertainment section where our resident bands as well as DJ nights will be staged. The bar will retain its distinctive circular form, but seating for guests will be oriented towards the lagoon and the magnificent sunset views to the West.
The temporary Bar-EE 2.0 structure will continue to serve the signature Bar-EE cocktails, with the addition of a special menu including complimentary Cheese & Charcuterie plates, as well as the popular Friturier snacks served during Happy Hour, daily from 5-7pm.
Fenesse Conversion / Opening of Cyan Lounge
Fenesse, our French fine dining restaurant, is being converted into two distinctly separate spaces – the Cyan Lounge and the new overwater Fenesse Restaurant serving Mediterrasian cuisine.
The new lounge and restaurant concepts have been inspired by the Spice and Silk Routes – ancient trading routes that connected Europe with Asia. The Silk Route designated the maritime journey from the Mediterranean Sea in the West all the way to the Korean peninsula and Japan, connecting Asia and Europe. It was one of the most important trading routes, bringing precious silk, jade, porcelain, fragrances, and novel spices from the East to Europe while also culturally connecting two continents that had heretofore been almost unknown to each other. The Spice Route went over land and connected the same civilizations with each other. It had several offshoots but the main route would carry merchandise from China to India, then Persia and end in Europe, filling Western households with a new range of spices as well as textiles, and ceramics.
Cyan Lounge will be stretching across several private terraces overlooking the lagoon, and serve beverages inspired by the Spice Route, together with delicacies from oysters to tapas to a selection of rare caviars. Open from afternoon until late, the mood will be enhanced by chilled-out DJ tunes, and a variety of Art Shishas will complete the setting.
Fenesse Restaurant will have indoor seating as well as extended balcony seating on the terrace around the glassed in seating area, with views across the lagoon and free standing Ocean Suites – the perfect setting for a romantic dinner. Inspired by the Silk Route, cuisine will showcase Mediterranean as well as Asian influences, finessed by creative combinations of spices. A Wine Library with panoramic glass walls will be connected to Fenesse, showcasing a selection of old and new world vintages to browse, or to arrange a private degustation dinner inside.
Jumeirah Vittaveli will have its own overwater Wedding Chapel, where brides can walk over glass floors to meet their groom in front of a backdrop of magnificent Indian Ocean turquoise. The Wedding chapel will be located next to Fenesse and Cyan.
First Ice Rink in Maldives
Jumeirah Vittaveli is currently building the country's first ice rink. This rink will be located next to the photo lounge, close by the boutique village. The ice rink will be manufactured using Glice™ plates, a novel material from Switzerland that allows outdoor ice rinks without artificial cooling systems, ensuring an ecologically sustainable ice rink in the tropical Maldives. Guests of Jumeirah Vittaveli will have the unique opportunity to go from bathing in the gentle waters of the Indian Ocean to gliding over an ice rink overlooking the powder soft beach – a world first!
