Newly opened resort gamechanger Siyam World, Maldives is gearing up for a first-ever festive season packed with memorable island escapades – including a dazzling array of ‘Global Thrills and World Adventures’-themed celebrations; DJ set by celebrity duo Mel Blatt and Jaime Winstone; and an exclusive headline performance by British singer and songwriter, Becky Hill. Over the course of Siyam World’s blockbusting festive fortnight, guests will find themselves transported into the worlds of some of the greatest and most exhilarating TV and movie hits of all times, from Peaky Blinders and James Bond to Money Heist and The Beatles’ Yellow Submarine.
Becky Hill will ring in the New Year with an exclusive headline performance. She is a British singer and songwriter from Bewdley. She rose to prominence after appearing on the first series of The Voice UK, auditioning with John Legend’s “Ordinary People”. In the beginning in 2021, Becky Hill released the singles “Last Time” and “Remember” with David Guetta. They peaked at number thirty-nine and number three respectively, the latter becoming Hill’s fourth top-ten hit. Celebrity DJ duo, All Saints star Mel Blatt and actor Jaime Winstone will then take to the decks to keep the dancefloor going with a show-stopping set of party anthems.
The festive season kicks off with an eye-popping array of sports activities and contests, including football, volleyball and tennis competitions, fun family games and challenges that really release the inner child and create bonds with fellow festive guests. Kids are also invited to participate in a range of activities from fashion shows, mermaid masterclasses and mocktail-making, to coral planting, coconut bowling, t-shirt tie-dying, and of course meeting Santa.
Evenings will be full steam ahead with themes including The Beatles’ psychedelic adventure ‘Yellow Submarine’, and a sophisticated and suave 007 Christmas cocktail beach party. Guests will also be treated to a Christmas Day brunch and an array of festive gala menus at the resort’s restaurants, from Asian fusion at The Wahoo Grill and Mediterranean at Andalucía, to Lobster & Champagne dinners and wine and cheese nights. The celebrations start early on the last day of 2021, with a Shelby’s private pool party – by order of The Peaky Blinders! Guests can make a splash at the Indian Ocean’s biggest floating water park with the Siyam Water World Warrior challenge, as well as unlimited access and numerous water-based activities to keep everyone entertained and active throughout the season. Think fun parkour challenges, banana boat rides, beach parties and funky sounds played by the resort’s resident DJs. Exuberant adults meanwhile can live their best lives at Siyam World’s epic beach pool and foam parties, or get wet and wild with exhilarating seabob rides, electric jet surfing, flyboarding, snorkeling and diving at the resort’s watersports centre, Shipwrecked.
