Christmas in the Maldives
A Winter Wonderland of snow-white sands melting into turquoise lagoon and never-ending Sapphire Ocean. Neon and fireworks lighting up the starry sky in a Countdown to the Surreal. Escape the mundane and live out the festive season with family, friends and lovers on the most exclusive of stages. Christmas and New Year at Niyama Private Islands celebrates revelry for all ages. With twin islands to explore at Nature’s Playground, we invite you to let loose and indulge, dining in treetops, partying under the waves, seeking out romance or adrenaline-filled adventures, playing or chilling to each island’s unique rhythms.
Enjoy a surreal Christmas of tropical cocktails and traditional carols. Celebrate with a Winter Wonderland feast, candles and mistletoe. Light up the ocean with a live coral Christmas tree unveiling in the days leading up to Christmas at Subsix, the world’s first underwater playground and lounge. Positioned six metres below the waterline, the tree illuminates each night.
The New Year countdown promises to be our most exciting yet, with a special performance of Cats the Musical, a twilight feast overlooking the ocean, contemporary dance and opera performances, and a moonlit party on the beach to bring in 2018.
Activities for little VIPs and their families abound at the Explorers Kids’ Club throughout the holiday season. Catering for children from 12 months to 12 years of age, split into four age groups, little members can enjoy Christmas baking, ornament making, tree decorating and snowman building, as well as our signature experiences of guided snorkelling expeditions, water fights and more.
Teens and adults are invited to join the Active programme, with island exploring, dolphin watching, a host of beach sports and authentic Maldivian cultural activities on offer, and a romantic movie night under the stars.
Radiance is all the island rage this festive season. Visit the sublime Drift Spa by Niyama for some holiday magic, with non-surgical facelifts from Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. David Alessi and transformational rejuvenation from health and longevity expert Paulo Fernandes.
