Celebrate festive season in style with twin island experience at Banyan Tree Vabbinfaru, Angsana Ihuru
Celebrate this festive season in style with the twin island experience at Banyan Tree Vabbinfaru and Angsana Ihuru, in a tropical ambiance, where our magical program of seasonal feasts, festive activities and special touches is designed to create lasting memories.
Throughout December, the first international hotel brand in Maldives is hosting a range of fun-filled festive experiences for couples, friends and families alike.
The associates have been working tirelessly to create the perfect holiday island atmosphere and complement it with a dazzling course of gastronomical and cultural entertainment attributing to the season’s spirit.
The resorts will commence its festive celebrations with the Toddy Sunset Ritual on December 22, followed by a traditional Christmas Eve on December 24 with a small twist, as Santa will arrive by boat instead of a sleigh, accompanied by lively Christmas carols while guests enjoy delectable canapé and craft cocktails.
Live arts with local market experience and t-shirt painting are available for the crafty and the much-anticipated activity ‘Swim Across the Channel’ for the sporty, where guests and associates swim together from the island of Vabbinfaru to reach the sister island Angsana Ihuru, just a kilometre away.
A series of complimentary romantic sunset cruises on the festive schedule take guests around the island lagoons to experience endless Maldivian sunsets while sipping Champagne and savouring tasty canape.
A team of experienced dive instructors will offer the most wonderful underwater adventures to divers and non-divers alike. A special complimentary group Christmas dive on December 25 follows Santa on a dive to meet the resident guitarfish, batfish and moray eels of the legendary Rannamaari Wreck, while beginners can explore Angsana Ihuru’s vibrant house reef.
If celebrating New Year’s Eve is more your style, ring in the coming year with our New Years Eve Gala Dinner Buffet with family and friends in the tropical beachfront surroundings of the Ilaafathi and Rivelhi restaurants.
