Waldorf Astoria Maldives Ithaafushi has announced the debut of its ‘Flying Dress’ photoshoot experience in collaboration with Santorini Dress, becoming the first and only destination in the Maldives to offer this one-of-a-kind exclusive guest experience. 

“We are so excited to launch this resort-exclusive experience for our guests, who can now create memorable moments at the world’s most popular destination,” said Etienne Dalancon, General Manager. 

Guests are invited to channel their inner models for this bespoke photoshoot, dressed in a gown with an extended hem that beautifully glides in the wind. This exclusive photoshoot is guaranteed to provide guests a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and stunning photos to cherish forever.

The experience will start with guests selecting their picture-perfect dress to capture the unforgettable moment. With 10 colors to choose from, the all-fit, custom-made flying dresses are designed to flatter guests of all ages, shapes and sizes. Imagine the delicate toss of a flying dress, the warm wind catching your hair at sunset, and the split-second moments where it all comes together perfectly. Along with the resort’s photo studio ShutterFish, the resort team aims to create memorable experiences that work harmoniously with the natural landscape of the island.

The award-winning Waldorf Astoria Maldives Ithaafushi offers a variety of picturesque backdrops, including a sandbank with a swing, an infinity pool with its surrounding beach area and the bamboo pods at its treetop restaurant Terra, among others. 

The ‘Flying Dress’ photoshoot experience can be tailored for various occasions – solo travelers, marriage proposals and family portraits – with many add-ons available to enhance the experience, such as hair and makeup services, slow motion drone shooting and additional flying dress colour choices.
