Dusit Thani Maldives, a luxury Thai-inspired resort on Mudhdhoo Island in Baa Atoll, is set to celebrate the arrival spring with a calendar of special events honouring different festivals from around the world, such as Holi, Songkran and Easter, with dining, dancing, and other memorable experiences for guests to enjoy.
The fun begins on Sunday 28 March with a beach party to mark the Hindu festival of Holi, complete with colourful powder, delicious food and music. Guests are invited to sample authentic flavours and a joyful celebration of life to start the season.
In anticipation of Easter Week, the resort welcomes Chef Vreni Giger from Switzerland for a selection of special culinary events. Named Chef of the Year in 2003, Chef Vreni maintained an unbroken record of 17 Gault Millau points at Jägerhof in St Gallen and since she moved to Rigiblick at Sorell Hotel, the restaurant has been awarded One-Michelin star. Guests at Dusit Thani Maldives will have the chance to learn the secrets of her unique organic gastronomy at a cooking class on 29 March and to sample her distinct, seasonal, produce-forward style at a gala dinner on Saturday 3 April and a beach barbecue on Tuesday 7 April. A surprise dish crafted by Chef Vreni will also feature as part of an indulge brunch on Easter Sunday.
Younger guests look forward to an action-packed Easter Week at Baan Sanook, the resort’s dedicated kids’ club, where each day is themed and filled with arts, crafts, games and fun. Highlights include egg and spoon racing, Easter egg hunting and cookie decorating. As Thailand marks its New Year festival, guests in The Maldives need not miss out. A Songkranthemed pool party offers the chance to splash and celebrate in tropical style, and an exquisite set dinner at renowned Thai restaurant Benjarong explores the Kingdom’s beloved cuisine on Tuesday 13 April.
Additional opportunities to get into the festive spirit during the Easter holidays include a White Party at Sand Bar, a lobster barbecue at Sea Grill and a Good Friday dinner starring fresh tuna, caught by Maldivian fishermen. Special spa packages at Devarana Wellness ensure guests maintain a blissful balance during their celebratory stay, and the Ocean Dive Centre offers chances to make the most of the unparalleled underwater beauty surrounding the island.
