Inspired by the timeless glamour of European holiday traditions, Le Méridien Maldives Resort & Spa has curated a festive calendar filled with unforgettable experiences for families to make the most wonderful time of the year even more magical.
Christmas Eve sets the tone for a plethora of culinary experiences to explore. Guests can indulge in a bountiful buffet of traditional favourites at the starry-skied beach side restaurant, Turquoise, against a backdrop of infinite Maldives vistas and the gentle sway of ocean breeze.
Those craving an explosion of Asian flavours can experience a very special six-course Omakase dinner with classic Japanese plates at its chic and contemporary restaurant, Tabemasu. End the night at Velaa Bar + Grill, where guests can revel in style, celebrate with signature cocktails, and live music that set the tone for a festive soirée.
Christmas Day starts with Au Soleil sunset sessions for good vibes and good drinks, after which guests can bask in the flavours of a festive brunch in a beachside setting, serving traditional fare, flowing bubbles, and sweet treats to relax and embrace the moment while watching the sun kiss the ocean from the shores of Turquoise restaurant.
Bring in the new year eve celebrations discovering grape and cheese pairings led by an expert sommelier, who takes guests on a journey through renowned regions for exotic wine and hidden gems at Tabemasu.
On New Year’s Eve, the shores of Thilamaafushi Island will be transformed into the 1960s era of glamorous travel; an evening inspired by the golden age of travel, its European heritage, playful sophistication and devotion to savouring the good life. From delicious cuisines featuring farm-to-table dishes and the freshest catch of the sea that fuse local tastes with international flavours, to illuminating cocktails, dancing, music and entertainment, the evening is complimented with fireworks that will ring in the New Year with vivid colours splashed across the night sky.
Continuing the momentum, guests can indulge in a five-course menu of exquisite dishes paired perfectly with wine for New Year’s Day to set the tone for the rest of the 2023 at the resort’s decadent seafood restaurant, Riviera Tapas.
