Ramadan at Jumeirah Vittaveli
Dubai, 10 June 2013: This July, and throughout the Holy month of Ramadan, Jumeirah Vittaveli will be inviting guests to mark the month with an exclusive stay in the Maldives. Those looking to observe the occasion with family or friends in idyllic surroundings can take advantage of a range of additional services and enjoy specially arranged Iftar evening meals to break each day’s fast.
Guests wishing to celebrate Ramadan a little closer to Malé can choose Jumeirah Vittaveli, a stunning resort just a 20-minute boat ride from Malé International Airport. Guests can break each day’s fast in-room with complimentary Ramadan essentials such as dates, buttermilk & watermelon juice. Then continue the evening at BAR-EE as dates, Arabic sweets, fresh juices, Turkish coffee and shisha are served to accompany the sunset.
Those staying on half or full board can choose to dine on a specially created Iftar menu served in Samsara from 7pm to 10.30pm, or indulge with in-villa dining between 6pm and 11pm. And, instead of a traditional breakfast, guests can opt for a Suhoor menu served in-villa between 12 am – 6 am before the fast begins again.
To mark the end of Ramadan, guests will also be treated to two nights of celebrations. On August 7, an ‘Arabian Night’ will take place at Samsara with a live four piece band, local belly dancers and a fire dancer. Half and full board guests can also enjoy a complimentary Arabian style buffet. Then, on August 8, an ‘Arabian Tribal Night’ will take place at signature restaurant Mu with traditional Arabian food and plenty of entertainment.
The Ramadan room and dining services are available from 9th July until 7th August at Jumeirah Vittaveli.
