Although it is still late summer, Outrigger Konotta Maldives Resort has announced an awe-inspiring festive programme of activities for Christmas and New Year 2019-20. Guests can expect pristine beach discoveries, food and beverage spectaculars, fun activities for kids, and plenty of quality relaxation for adults.
The spacious and award winning, all-pool villa resort in the south of the Maldives has created wonderful activities from 19 December to 1 January. Most of the activities are complimentary. The activities fall under eight great festive themes:
Food & Beverage: Expect everything from a festive feast on the 25th to a global gourmet voyage, Indian Ocean night, Asian street food fair, barbecue and Boduberu, sunset seafood and sauvignon, wine academy with a guest sommelier, mezze and Arabic grill, and more.
Active lifestyle: Combat festive excess with aqua aerobics, an introduction to paddle boarding, gym fitness lessons, and kayaking around the island.
For Kids: Enjoy movie nights under the stars, family sand castle contests, kids parties, kite flying, hunting for Christmas bells, and, of course, visit Santa Claus in his grotto on Christmas Day.
Body & Soul: Chose from meditation classes, nature walks, aerial yoga, and a full range of pampering options at Navasana Spa, a sanctuary within a sanctuary.
For Adults: Enjoy live chill out sessions by the resident DJ, New Year’s Eve party, spa, wine, mixology, dining on the beach, and a sunset cocktail reception with management.
Mother Nature: Join a marine talk with the resort’s marine biologist, say hello to a sea turtle, or give back to nature by joining a desert island clean-up and snorkel trip – all activities are part of Outrigger’s OZONE global marine conservation commitment.
Out of the Ordinary States of Being: Uniquely memorable experiences include local island excursions, renewal of vows, sunken beach table dining by candlelight, picnic on a sandbank, cooking classes, or escaping in a dhoni traditional boat to be a desert island castaway for a day.
Festive People: Chill with the festive people who will make it a particularly memorable time of year on Konotta Island: Matty Wainwright (DJ), Christopher Long (chef), Bijaya Kumar (yoga and fitness trainer), Reena and Rashfa (Coral Kids Club supervisors), and Santa Claus (no introduction required). A mixologist and sommelier will be joining too.
“Each year we work with Santa and his elves to create festive magic for families and couples who want to unwind in a pristine beach setting at Christmas,” says John Allanson, General Manager of the resort. “Outrigger promises a magical experience where you can forget the winter cold and celebrate in style.”
