Maldives, 21 January 2019: If you’re still searching for the ideal destination to celebrate Easter with your family, Jumeirah Vittaveli offers the perfect place. Imagine being flown on a private seaplane 100km away from Malé for the world’s most exclusive dinner or celebrating with the family at the resort’s Zootopia party.
World’s most exclusive dinner
As you are whisked away to one of the last untouched atolls of the Maldives, a private butler will create a sunken dining table carved from sand and Michelin starred Chef Ollie Dabbous will prepare an exquisite dinner, just for two. The night will be spent star-gazing from a luxury yacht, before guests take a short seaplane journey back to Jumeirah Vittaveli. The ultimate dining experience is available from USD 25,000 including a 5-night stay for 2 at Jumeirah Vittaveli.
Family fun at Easter
Families looking to spend Easter in style can relax on powder white beaches and swim in crystal clear waters before celebrating with the kids at the resort’s Zootopia party. Children can get creative and paint Easter Eggs with the Kuda Koli Kids Club team, feast on doughnuts, cotton candy and lollipops or dress up as a character from Zootopia and hunt for the Golden Egg. On Easter Sunday, keep a look out for the Easter bunny too.
Michelin starred experiences
Foodies will love the exclusive curated wine dinners hosted by London HIDE’s Chef Ollie Dabbous. From April 19 – 24, Chef Ollie will cook at both Cuvée, the resort’s wine library, and Fenesse, the French fine dining restaurant. And for those who fancy a more exquisite experience, how about a sunset champagne cruise with canapes before enjoying an intimate dinner onboard?
Amit Majumder, General Manager, Jumeirah Vittaveli, said: “We delight our guests by creating special memories. A one-of-a-kind dining experience on a virgin island in a remote atoll with Chef Ollie is another highlight on our path to exceed guest expectations. I am thrilled to have Ollie on-board who will make this gourmet dream a reality.”
Jumeirah Vittaveli offers villas and suites designed specifically for families. Land and water-based activities include a PADI Dive base, water sports, six restaurants and bars, a wine library, and an overwater lounge; an underground Whiskey Salon and a cigar lounge will open soon. With its focus on cultural connection and organic experiences in a luxurious setting, Jumeirah Vittaveli offers guests a true Maldivian island experience.
