Ramadan at Jumeirah Dhevanafushi and Jumeirah Vittaveli
Maldives Promotion House – This July, and throughout the Holy month of Ramadan, Jumeirah Dhevanafushi and 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.
Jumeirah Dhevanafushi, situated in a privileged and secluded location at the southernmost tip of the Maldives, is an ideal location for reflection during Ramadan. Guests will be treated to complimentary dates and Arabic sweets to enjoy between dusk and dawn, and Ramadan juices – including flavours such as date, apricot, rose and kamardine – will also be available upon request. For the Iftar meal, fine-dining restaurant Johara will feature an Arabic area, whilst a family-style dinner menu will run at beachside restaurant Azara. An Arabic style Suhoor menu is available from in-villa dining at any time of day for those who wish to dine early in the morning before the fast begins again at sunrise.
Guests can also mark the end of each day’s fast with a trip to Khibar to enjoy a sunset selection of shisha prepared by the barman, as well as fresh juices and dates. And to celebrate Eid, a special Arabic Buffet will be held on Saturday 10 August.
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 both Jumeirah Dhevanafushi and Jumeirah Vittaveli.
