Amilla Maldives Presents a Carnival-Inspired Festive With a Feathery Twist
Baa Atoll’s Amilla Maldives invites merrymaking guests to shake their tail feathers this holiday season with a 12-day parade of carnival-inspired festivities with a feathery flourish.
Amilla Maldives’ rendition of the Yuletide season will draw inspiration from its island culture and the vibrant feathers, flavours and flamboyance of carnival. After opening the season with laidback parties at Baa Bar and a traditional Maldivian feast at Baazaar – complete with Bodu Beru drummers and local lacquer craftsmen – the rhythms of Rio will ramp up with Brazilian funk, samba and lambada dance classes and workshops on the Brazilian martial art of capoeira.
Families and children can bond in style with Aerial Circus Adventures at the Sultan’s Village Kids’ Club, enjoy a moonlit movie night screening of hit animation Rio, or join a samba drum circle, fiesta workshop, or ‘Circus in the Sand’. Baa Bar will host nightly live music and entertainment from 24 December to 2 January to keep everyone in the festive spirit.
On New Year’s Eve, the feathery festivities reach their height with a Rio Carnival party and dinner to ring in the New Year. Fire performers, stilt walkers, and salsa dancers will roam the resort, mesmerising guests with captivating tricks. As the clock strikes midnight, the Maldivian night sky will light up with spectacular fireworks to welcome the arrival of the new year.
