Jumeirah Vittaveli unveils bespoke art collection for Royal Residence
Jumeirah Vittaveli has launched a collection of bespoke art pieces specially designed by gifted Emirati artist Maha al Mazrouei to celebrate the resort’s newly launched five-bedroom Royal Residence.
Maha was tasked to design four bespoke art pieces for the Royal Residence.
A twin painting now flanks the grand entrance to the Royal Residence and sets the mood for a tranquil island escape. A more daring and colourful piece — inspired by the colourful gardens of the island — decorates the private spa pavilion. In the living area of the Sanctuary — the accommodation reserved for the host of any Royal Residence stay — hangs Maha’s breathtaking depiction of over and underwater beauty of the Maldives.
“Specialising in cubism and abstract styles, Maha has reimagined the Maldivian islands using oil based paints of blue and white hues, to match to the chic interiors and furnishings of the Royal Residence,” Jumeirah Vittaveli said, in an announcement.
“Maha’s colourful modern artworks showcased at the Royal Residence have been inspired by the Maldivian islands and add the final decorative touch to the property.”
According to Jumeirah Vittaveli, Maha will host an intimate art exhibition, which infuses style and culture, at the resort later this year.
“I always feel a sense of calm when visiting the Maldivian islands — it’s heaven on Earth. I am so fascinated by God’s creation and all the components that you see when exploring the island. I wanted to create an art collection exclusive to Jumeirah Vittaveli to reflect this unique experience,” Maha was quoted in the announcement, as saying.
Maha has been active in the creative world since 1993 when she co-founded the Tebra Art Group together with other female Emirati artists. With Tebra, Maha took part in various exhibitions and installations such as a mural for Dubai’s Shopping festival in 1996.
One of Maha’s abstract paintings was also chosen as a stamp for the UAE postal authorities in 1996. In recent years, Maha has been producing an eclectic selection of solo art including a collection of murals featured at Jumeirah’s world-renowned Burj Al Arab property and paintings inside the VIP Majlis at Dubai International Airport.
Located a short 20-minute ride on board a luxurious motorised catamaran from capital, Jumeirah Vittaveli offers unmatched diversity, subtle luxury and personalised exploration, whether you are seeking a romantic getaway or an exotic destination for your family.
The Royal Residence at Jumeirah Vittaveli is a resort all on its own. Designed for families and groups of friends looking for the ultimate in luxury, this stunning residence offers five bedrooms extending across 3,500 square meters of pure tranquillity. Home to two private swimming pools overlooking the private residence beach, a dedicated island grill restaurant offers live cooking and teppanyaki style cuisine set atop a traditional Dhoni-shaped deck.
In addition to the recently launched Royal Residence, the resort comprises 89 villas and suites each with their own swimming pool and direct access to the beach or lagoon. The private and spacious villas are available with one or two bedrooms making them the ideal accommodation for both families and couples. Highlights are the free-standing Ocean Suites, located only a heartbeat away from the main island and accessible by complimentary boat service.
