Cherishable festive season at Vakkaru Maldives

Vakkaru Maldives has invited travellers from all around the world to be part of a cherishable festive season.

To celebrate the most wonderful time of the year, the resort has launched a festive calendar along with a special Festive Season Offer, which allows guests to enjoy up to 35 per cent off room rate with daily breakfast at Amaany restaurant included. This offer is valid for direct bookings on for stays between December 20, 2019 and January 11, 2020.

Guests who stay during the festive season have a lot of exciting programmes to look forward to, as the resort’s team has prepared indulgent culinary experiences, lively entertainment, exciting recreational and kids’ activities as well as rejuvenating wellness programmes for all to enjoy.

An extensive selection of sumptuous treats will be available at the resort’s six dining venues and its very own wine cellar Vakkaru Reserve, offering a perfect environment for everyone to relax and indulge in holiday spirit.

Guests will be treated to a festive high tea and a cheese and charcuterie pairing session with a resident sommelier, as well as a Christmas market featuring a multitude of stalls with food and beverage offerings, spa products, luxury boutique items and local souvenirs throughout the festive weeks.

Fishermen’s Night, Lobster and Champagne Dinner, Thai Night and Christmas Eve Gala Dinner are some of the culinary highlights on the days leading up to Christmas Day.

Towards the end of the year, the resort will continue to offer daily themed-dinners, including Latino Buffet, Shisha Night, Maldivian Cultural Experience and Crab Galore to satisfy every taste bud. Live music performances will be available at different venues every day to set the mood whilst keeping the guests entertained during dinner.

The most anticipated carnival-themed New Year’s Eve celebration on Vakku Beach will take inspiration from the classic funfairs, keeping guests of all ages entranced and fully immersed from dusk till midnight, with fun games, a wide array of live food stalls, live acts and music, as well as selection of party-perfect drinks.

Usher in 2020 with a morning sun salutation session at the overwater gym, before feasting on the Pearl and Caviar New Year’s Brunch at Vakkaru Reserve. Little islanders from 3-12 years of age will be treated to a New Year’s mini brunch at Parrotfish Club.

To conclude the festive week in style, the resort will welcome internationally-renowned fashion illustrator and author Megan Hess for the exclusive launch of her third book in The Claris Collection, Claris: Bonjour Riviera from January 5-6, 2020.

Guests who pre-book their seats will be the first in the world to receive signed copies of Claris: Bonjour Riviera hot off the press, view the unveiling of Claris’ new resort collection by luxury fashion house, Poca & Poca, attend an exclusive illustration masterclass conducted by Megan Hess, and enjoy a bespoke Megan Hess dessert table on Orthodox Christmas night.

An array of energetic or relaxing indulgent activities in and around the island have been thoughtfully designed for all family members to enjoy. Teenagers and adults have 24-hour access to fun recreational activities at Coconut Club and scheduled sporting activities like table tennis and foosball tournaments, badminton and tennis tournaments, water polo, pool gym, and beach volleyball.

Tennis enthusiasts can make the most of their island getaway as Vakkaru welcomes guest tennis coach Erika Zanchetta, an Italian tennis professional who played in the semi-finals of European Championship 2019, bringing her flair for the game to the resort’s sports fields from December 20, 2019 to January 20, 2020.

The resort’s overwater Merana Spa and gym will offer scheduled wellness programmes, including product workshops, selected treatment trials, yoga and fitness classes, as well as sound therapy sessions. From 10am to 10pm, guests will have complimentary access to relax in the wellness centre with sauna and steam room, a warm Jacuzzi, and a cold plunge pool.

Vakkaru Maldives is a secluded tropical island resort located within the Baa atoll, a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, in the heart of the Indian Ocean.

Only 30 minutes north of Velana International Airport by seaplane, Vakkaru – meaning coconut timber in Dhivehi – is an unforgettable paradise blessed with powder soft, brilliant white sand, crystal clear turquoise water, 360-degree uninterrupted views and sprawling coral reefs with unique marine biodiversity.

Keeping the natural beauty of the island as unspoilt as possible – including retaining over 2,300 fully grown coconut trees – and drawing on the rich traditions of the locale, design elements are focused on Maldivian style fused with the finest natural resources and contemporary interior.

Guests can revel in the choice of 113 beach and overwater villas and suites, as well as five sensational restaurants, two bars, a wine cellar and an outstanding array of treatments in the overwater Merana Spa.

Facilities also include Splash Dive and Water Sports, two tennis courts, a badminton court, the Parrotfish Club for children below 12 years, Coconut Club for teens and an overwater gymnasium with personal trainer.
